A Mexican travel expert has a different take on the report that the kidnapping was a case of mistaken identity.
Listen: Travel expert Janet Sanders lived in Mexico until earlier this year and nearly lost her life to the corrupt local police officials under the drug cartel's power. She strongly cautions any American citizen from going to Mexico, especially now with tensions on the rise there. Sanders is urging parents of college students to keep their kids out of Mexico at all costs
“These Americans that were kidnapped by the drug cartels in Mexico were murdered, and we still haven’t declared the cartels a military target. It’s way past time that we authorize U.S. military force against the cartels, and protect our people", said Sanders, who is currently writing a book about her own dangerous experience in Mexico and oversees the travel advisory website https://mexiknowinfo.com/
