On 24 June 2022, the U.S. Embassy in Mexico issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “The state of Chiapas has recently experienced heightened violence among criminal organizations including violent clashes in San Cristobal de Las Casas and the highway 145d between Tuxtla and Raudales de Malpaso. U.S. citizens should expect to encounter increased Mexican military and National Guard presence in and around San Cristobal de Las Casas. Criminal activity and violence may occur throughout the state, and criminal organization assassinations and territorial disputes can result in bystanders being injured or killed.”
