Mexicali taxi's block Port, want better security

Posted:

MEXICALI- Mexican taxi cab drivers are protesting as a way to pressure their government to do something about the growing violence against them.

Dozens of cab drivers blocked the West Port of Entry in Mexicali.

The protest started around 7 Wednesday morning causing a closure to the port.

It ended just after 11 when they came to an agreement with the governor.

The taxi drivers are requesting more security because they've been victims of kidnappings, assaults, and homicides recently.

A meeting is scheduled with the drivers and governor.
