Collateral Damage: Drug violence in Mexico has impact in Chicago

Drug violence in Mexico has impact in Chicago - Chicago Tribune: "Cipriana Jurado still weeps when she thinks of her longtime friend who was gunned down in the violence-plagued region of Ciudad Juarez, just below the Texas- Mexico border.

Now in Chicago, Jurado said she was warned after the January slaying that she could be next if she didn't leave town.

The veteran human-rights activist is part of a steady trickle of Mexican nationals who have been fleeing to Chicago and other U.S. cities amid a Mexican government war against drug cartels in Juarez that has led to 2,850 deaths so far this year, with criminals and authorities alike alleged to have committed atrocities."
