DPS Issues Travel Warning
The Department of Public Safety is advising Texans on spring break to avoid Mexican border cities because of
drug cartel violence.
DPS Director Steven McCraw on Thursday, in a statement, cited an increase in Mexican drug cartel-related violence in northern border cities.
McCraw ways "parents should not allow their children to visit these Mexican cities because their safety cannot be guaranteed."
A U.S. State Department Web site also lists travel alerts related to violence in Mexico.
