U.s. con­sulate in Juárez closes

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

MEX­ICO CITY — The U.S. Con­sulate in Juárez, across the border from El Paso, will tem­po­rar­ily close pend­ing a re­view of its se­cu­rity pro­to­cols. The U.S. Em­bassy said the con­sulate will “re­main closed un­til the se­cu­rity re­view is com­pleted.” The em­bassy state­ment did not say what prompted the re­view. The de­ci­sion came about four months af­ter drug gang hit men killed a U.S. em­ployee of the con­sulate, her hus­band and two other peo­ple tied to the con­sulate. The Juárez Con­sulate is the only place where Mex­i­cans can ap­ply for per­ma­nent res­i­dency in the U.S.
