JUAREZ - The president of Mexico is spending tonight in Juarez.
Earlier this evening, Felipe Calderon installed a big sign near the Bridge of the Americas that says "no more weapons."
President Calderon criticized the U.S. for allowing too many illegal weapons into Mexico.
"No more sentiments. No more weapons. Mexico needs your help in order to stop this terrible violence we are suffering, and the best way to do that is by stopping the flow of assault weapons toward Mexico. No more weapons to Mexico,” said Mexican President Felipe Calderon.
Mexican soldiers built the sign with three tons of weapons seized by the army.
