A newspaper in our sister city of Nuevo Laredo is under is claiming they are claiming an imminent threat with the possibility of violence.

According to sources in the newspaper, the threat is not from criminal organizations but the government of Tamaulipas.

On Saturday, they published a statement on their website declaring sources working with the U.S. alerted them.

It adds there's an orchestration between the State of Tamaulipas and the City of Nuevo Laredo planning the attack against the newspaper.

Despite the attempt at suppressing the freedom of the press, one they believe could lead to violence, the newspaper says they will continue informing the public.
