Police fire Mexican mum
A COLLEGE student and mother who was police chief in a violent Mexican border town has been fired for abandoning her post, local government officials said on Monday. The government of Praxedis Guadalupe Guerrero, in northern Chihuahua state, will ‘‘ remove Marisol Valles Garcia, head of the office of public security, from her post,’’ an official statement said. A relative of Valles said last week that the 20-year-old had fled to the United States seeking asylum. She had ‘‘ received death threats from a criminal group that wanted to force her to work for them,’’ the relative said, speaking anonymously.
