The meeting between the president and Marina del Pilar Ávila occurred days after the former governor of that state, Jaime Bonilla, accused her of leading a drug trafficking cartel that disputes the position of other criminal organizations.
Currently, Jaime Bonilla is a senator of the Republic for the Labor Party, and from that forum, he also criticized that the governor spends her time traveling to Japan while many of the citizens suffer the loss of their assets.
In this regard, Governor Marina del Pilar assured President López Obrador that Baja California “awaits him with open arms” and assured him that the state “is his home (Mi casa es su casa).”
