Tijuana Mayor Jorge Hank Rhon
It was June 1st when Jorge Hank Rhon came by to discuss several subjects with David
and Susan. He is the mayor of Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, and one of the
richest men in Mexico. Tijuana is just across the border from San Diego. It is
estimated that 250,000 people cross the border each day between Tijuana and San Diego,
more than any other place in the world. Tijuana has had well over 150 murders in the
first four months of this year. Mayor Rhon told Susan and David that many of these
homicides were related to drug cartels fighting each other. He feels that the ordinary
tourist is very safe in Tijuana. Mayor Rhon said he has installed cameras in many
public places to insure the safety of tourists. Incidentally, he has 19 children.
