The governor of the strife-ridden Mexican state of Michoacan blasted “hypocritical” U.S. officials for issuing travel advisories and warning in the wake of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Michoacan Governor Silvano Aureoles Conejo revealed that he was profoundly concerned when he heard about the recent high school shooting in Florida and requested that a similar warning is issued against the U.S. as a result.

In an interview with Quadratin, Conejo discussed the recent U.S. Department of State travel advisory that places various parts of Mexico with cartel violence in the same category as Syria or other Middle-Eastern countries regarding the lack of security conditions.

The governor of Michoacán, Silvano Aureoles Conejo, blasted the recent travel warning issued by the U.S. government warning Americans to avoid traveling to Michoacan municipalities.

“Look at the contradiction: the U.S. issues travel warnings for citizens to not visit Mexico and we don’t have the massacres that they do,” Aureoles Conejo said. “It’s hypocrisy by the government. We should then issue a warning to not visit the U.S. because they kill innocent people by the dozens.”

Nikolas Cruz, 19, is suspected of executing 17 victims during a shooting rampage.

The comments made by Aureoles Conejo occur after Mexico reported its most violent year to date with 25,399 homicides in 2017, according to Mexico’s most recent crime statistics. In Michoacan, Aureoles Conejo saw 1,277 murders as La Nueva Familia Michoacana members remain engulfed in a fierce war for control against their rivals,  Jalisco New Generation Cartel.
