US closes its consulate in Ciudad Juarez

I can't believe it took so long to close the doors to the Embassy .

Maybe Obama will pay attention to this ?

I know , I know , it is wishful thinking , Obama has better things to do , like go on the View , Maybe he will go on Oprah next ?

The Mayhem continues .

The US has closed indefinitely its consulate in Ciudad Juarez, the Mexican city worst affected by the drugs war being fought by rival gangs.

A statement from the US embassy in Mexico City said the consulate would remain shut until a security review is completed.

In 2009, more than 2,600 people died in drug-related violence in Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas.

A US official said the consulate had closed following a "credible threat".

A statement on the consulate's website advised American citizens to avoid the area around the building.

The consulate is the only place handling applications for US residency from Mexican citizens.
