Solalinde's life is in danger: Amnesty International

Amnesty International urgently requested from the Mexican government protection for human rights activist Alejandro Solalinde, a very brave catholic priest who has particularly involved himself in the protection of one of the most vulnerable populations in Mexico, Central and South American migrants.

A hit man is reportedly already assigned to assassinate him in Ixtepec, Oaxaca, where he runs a migrant shelter.

This is terrifying stuff: Due to his incessant activism, Solalinde's life now appears in very real danger: Offering police protection should be the very least thing the Mexican government could do to prevent his assassination.
