phrase: now that I saw the report I felt satisfied because, according to our records, only 54 killings yesterday and bring an average of 80. That is what matters to me, lowering the number of homicides, lowering the number of thefts, which there is no kidnapping.
Andrés López Manuel Obrador said at Conference on January 30 that in Mexico “officially there is no war” after highlight that, a day earlier, the single country were recorded 54 homicides against the average of 80 of earlier days.
What the President did not explain is that, since his Government began on December 1, only five days the registration of killings has been less than 60. In fact, the official data for January 30 – the day that Lopez Obrador presumed reduction in the figures-the killings again increased to 81 newspapers.

These data show that in the days leading the Government of López Obrador, during the month of January, only two dates registered a number of killings near which the President cited. The January 15 with 55 homicides and 24 January 28 killings. In December, three times the number of killings was less than 60.

rating: false in a tweet posted on the morning of 31 January, the President of the United States held that the increase by 33% of homicides in Mexico were a cause of the humanitarian crisis on the border between Mexico and a States gone. As he pointed out, such uncertainty, is expanding by the United States, it is necessary the construction of a wall.
However, while there was an increase in the number of homicides in Mexico with respect to 2017, growth does not correspond with what you quoted Trump.
The Executive Secretariat of the national system of public security (SESNSP) shows that by 2018 there was 33 thousand 341 victims of homicide – the same figure that gave the American President – and in 2017, there were 28 thousand 866 victims. This means that the increase in absolute terms of victims of intentional homicides between 2017 and 2018 was 15.5% and 33% not as stated.
As folders of research initiated by intentional homicides, the Executive Secretariat recorded 28 thousand last year 816 and in 2017, 25 thousand 497. I.e., in absolute terms, there was an increase of 13.01%.
In relative terms, i.e., isolating the possible effect of the population growth in the period, the rate of homicides per 100 thousand inhabitants in 2017 was 20.27, and in 2018 from 23.10. This means that the malicious homicide rate was 13.96% or 2.36 times less than the sustained by us President.
