95 homicides in Juarez in February 2019; average of 3.4 per day

According to El Diario there were 95 homicides in Juarez during February 2019.  In January there were 108 homicides so the total now for the year is 203.  The article also provides a figure of more than 5,000 homicides statewide in Chihuahua dating from October 2016 when the administration of Governor Javier Corral began. The city of Juarez accounts for about HALF of the total homicides in the state of Chihuahua.

On average, 3.4 people have been murdered in Ciudad Juarez each day in 2019.  There were a total of 1,259 murders in Juarez during 2018, an average of 3.4 murder victims per day.
Also below, El Diario reported the first homicide of March which occurred at about 12:20 am on March 1, 2019.
It may be worth noting again in terms of the Trump rhetoric of chaos and violence at the border, that the cities on the US side of the border have low homicide rates.
El Paso recently reported 23 homicides during 2018, and an average of 16 murders per year during the past decade.
The city of McAllen in the Rio Grande Valley reported sharp decreases in violent crime in 2018. There were NO HOMICIDES in McAllen during the past year: https://www.themonitor.com/2019/01/18/crime-mcallen-dropped-significantly-2018/
The city announced on Friday that 2018 saw the lowest crime rate in 34 years, just as President Donald Trump has recently called the current state of the southwest border a national security crisis. There were no homicides in McAllen last year. There was the fewest number of robberies and aggravated assaults on record.
