More Info: Blackwater

A US company, Blackwater, seeks to build a mercenary training center in the El Hongo area of Tecate, Mexico. Blackwater describes itself as “the most complete company in the world for training and placement of military professionals and police for maintaining security, peace and stability”. The company was in the news three years ago when crowds in Iraq burned and hung four Blackwater advisors. Blackwater has tried to locate its training camp in San Diego, but was met with an extremely negative response from homeowner’s. The neighbors objected to the idea of urban assault scenarios, use of live ammunition, and shooting practices nearby. If San Diego rejects the proposal, the training center could end up in Tecate. A bad idea for both Californias.
