“Every day, men and women are arbitrarily deprived of life, just like our brothers were murdered today,” a statement from the Jesuit Order explained.

“The Jesuits of Mexico will not remain silent at the reality that lacerates all of society.”

As Brietbart reported:

Despite the claims of Mexico’s federal government about diminishing violence, cartel gunmen control large swaths of the country and operate with almost complete impunity.

In Chihuahua, criminal cells tied to the Juarez and Sinaloa Cartels have been openly fighting for years for smuggling corridors into the U.S.

The area where the clergy murders took place is controlled by the Gente Nueva cell of the Sinaloa Cartel.

During his morning conference, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that his administration was already looking into the case and have information about the perpetrators.

As CBS News reported:

The church's Catholic Multimedia Center said seven priests have been murdered under the current administration, which took office in December 2018, and at least two dozen under the former president, who took office in 2012.

In 2016, three priests were killed in just one week in Mexico.

The center said that in 2021, a Franciscan priest died when he was caught in the crossfire of a drug gang shootout in the north-central state of Zacatecas as he drove to Mass.

Another priest was killed in the central state of Morelos and another in the violence-plagued state of Guanajuato that year.

In 2019, a priest was stabbed to death in the northern border city of Matamoros, across from Brownsville, Texas.

Chihuahua Gov. Maria Eugenia Campos wrote in her Twitter account that she "laments and condemns" the killings, and said security arrangements had been discussed for priests in the area.
