"Hopefully we are still in time to avoid mexicanización in the country," said the Pope

Pope Francisco warned about the progress of drug trafficking in Argentina and wanted to be "on time to avoid mexicanization" in a letter to his friend and Buenos Aires legislature Gustavo Vera.

"Hopefully we are still in time to avoid mexicanization. I was talking to some Mexican bishops and the thing is scary," said the Pope in the controversial letter, which was sent via email, and was posted on the website of the cooperative the Alameda, which owns Vera.

"Dear brother.... Thanks for your emai.l I see your tireless full steam work I pray a lot to God protect you to you and alamedenses And hopefully we are still in time to avoid mexicanization. was talking to some Mexican bishops and the thing is terror, "begins the letter that was sent Francisco this past weekend and went public today.

It is the first time Jorge Bergoglio occurs on the drug situation in Argentina since he was anointed pope, although Argentina Church warned several times in recent years on the progress of this scourge in our country.

For now, there was silence in the Argentine government on these strong statements to several opposition leaders, merely make explicit what is already being living and long denounced the country without answers or official solutions in sight .
