Solalinde's back, with bodyguards

Father Alejandro Solalinde Guerra, target of much intimidation and death threats due to his work in Oaxaca for migrants, above all in his shelter "Hemanos en el Camino," returned recently to Mexico after credible and concrete plans of his assassination were revealed.

The federal PGR announced he will from now on have four bodyguards.

Solalinde notably called on the church he belongs to - the Catholic Church - to assume a more active role in defense of migrants. If only the church had more men like Solalinde, and less thugs like Juan Sandoval Iñiguez and Noberto Rivera.

He also came out against all of Mexico's parties, for their lack of any proposals on migration, though he noted that "the worst of them all, it is clear to me, comes from the PRI: It doesn't have any." Make sure to read his interview with Animal Político here.
