“He is showing that there is another way. He is proving that the problem can be solved. It has been a war with criminals, and this infuriates what is, in a way, a totally authoritarian media industry in that country, said host Harrison Smith on his show The American Journal, who highlighted the public safety strategies implemented by the government of President Nayib Bukele in El Salvador.
El Salvador went from being the most violent country in the world to becoming the safest in Latin America thanks to public security strategies such as the Territorial Control Plan led by President Bukele, and the establishment of the emergency regime that has been in force since March 27, 2022.
Smith explained a comparative table that included the homicide rates in El Salvador, in which he indicated that the country registered 18 to 30 homicides per day versus the 1.7 with which the rate of deaths due to violence closed in 2022.
On the other hand, the financial expert and ex-combatant of the US Army, Alex Stanczyk expressed that El Salvador’s achievement in public security “is the most successful reduction in homicide rates of any nation, and perhaps, in the history of humanity.” ».
On the other hand, the television presenter Sara Carter highlighted that “under (the management of) Nayib Bukele, El Salvador is no longer kidnapped by criminal gang cartels and their networks, such as MS-13. In fact, for the first time in a long time, sources close to me tell me that gang members are looking to flee El Salvador to the United States, where the (Joe) Biden administration offers them refuge.
2022 closed as the year with the fewest homicides in 201 years of Salvadoran history. From January 1 to December 31 of last year, there were 176 days without deaths due to violence on a national scale, of which 169 were achieved within the emergency regime.
