Consulate’s warning for Rocky Point unsubstantiated

Business leaders in Puerto Penasco, commonly known as Rocky Point, met on Monday to discuss the backlash of calls and emails received as a result of the warning that specifically mentioned dangers (such as “Fake” checkpoint) on Highway 8, the road to this popular beach resort town. According to the director of Mexico’s Federal Highway Patrol, no incidents like those discussed in the warning have occurred.

The AFI, which is like the Federal Investigative Agency, has also denied any knowledge of problems along Highway 8. Local police chief Erick Landagaray expressed surprise that the Consulate would issue a warning without so much as a thread of truth to it, without first consulting with his office. The Attorneys General at the State as well as Federal level have also said there is no basis for the claims of violence on the road to Puerto Penasco.

According to the American business community, it seems that warning posted by the U.S. Consulate has violated their own policy of not relying solely on unsubstantiated rumors, which in the process has harmed an entire community, many of whom are Americans.
