Ciudad Juárez (HWAH-rez; Juarez City. Spanish pronunciation:&#;[sjuˈðað ˈxwaɾes] (About this soundlisten)) is the second most populous city in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.[3] It is commonly referred to as Juárez and was known as El Paso del Norte (The Pass of the North) until [4] Juárez is the seat of the Juárez Municipality with an estimated population of &#;million people.[5] It lies on the Rio Grande (Río Bravo del Norte) river, south of El Paso, Texas, United States. Together with the surrounding areas, the cities form El Paso–Juárez, the second largest binational metropolitan area on the Mexico–U.S. border (after San Diego–Tijuana), with a combined population of over &#;million people.[6]

Four international points of entry connect Ciudad Juárez and El Paso: the Bridge of the Americas, the Ysleta International Bridge, the Paso del Norte Bridge, and the Stanton Street Bridge. Combined, these bridges allowed 22,, crossings in ,[7] making Ciudad Juárez a major point of entry and transportation into the U.S. for all of central northern Mexico. The city has a growing industrial center, which in large part is made up by more than "maquiladoras" (assembly plants) located in and around the city. According to a New York Times article, Ciudad Juárez was "absorbing more new industrial real estate space than any other North American city".[5] In , fDi Magazine designated Ciudad Juárez "The City of the Future".[8]

As 17th century Spanish explorers sought a route through the southern Rocky Mountains, the Franciscan Friar García de San Francisco founded Ciudad Juárez in as "El Paso del Norte" ("The North Pass"). The Misión de Guadalupe de los Mansos en el Paso del río del Norte became the first permanent Spanish development in the area in the s, although Native American peoples were already present. The Franciscan friars established a community that grew in importance as commerce between Santa Fe and Chihuahua passed through it. The wood for the first bridge across the Rio Grande came from Santa Fe, New Mexico in the late 18th century. The original population of Mansos, Suma, Jumano, and other natives from the south brought by the Spanish from Central New Spain grew around the mission. In during the Pueblo Revolt, most of the Piro Pueblo and some of the Tiwa people branch of the Pueblo became refugees, A Mission was established for the Tigua in Ysleta del Sur. Piro Pueblo colonial era settlements along El Camino Real, south of the Guadalupe Mission, included Missions Real de San Lorenzo, Senecú del Sur, and Soccoro del Sur. Presidio del Nuestra Senora del Pilar del Paso del Rio Norte was established near the Mission in [9]:&#;39–96&#;

The population of the entire district was close to 5, in when the Apache attacked the other native towns and ranchos around the missions. Additional Presidios were established to counter them. One Presidio, San Elzeario, was established near El Porvenir in , where it remained until being moved in to what is now San Elizario, Texas where that settlement grew up around that Presidio. Another was Presidio de San Fernando de Carrizal, which was established in at the San Fernando settlement that became present-day Carrizal, Chihuahua.[9]:&#;39–40&#;

The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo established the Rio Grande as the border between Mexico and the United States. The main channel of the Rio Grande had moved southwestward leaving the settlements of Ysleta, Socorro, and San Elzeario on the Camino Real on the north bank of the river, isolated from the rest of the towns, in Texas.

Other settlements on the east bank of the Rio Grande were not part of a town at that time; as the U.S. Army set up its installations settlements grew around it. This would later become El Paso, Texas. From that time until around , populations on both sides of the border moved freely across it.[citation needed]

During the French intervention in Mexico (–), Benito Juárez's republican forces stopped temporarily at El Paso del Norte before establishing his government-in-exile in Chihuahua. After , the city grew, in large part, because of the arrival of the Mexican Central Railway. Commerce thrived in the city as more banks began operating, telegraph and telephone services became available, and trams appeared. These commercial activities were under the firm control of the city's oligarchy, which consisted of the Ochoa, Samaniego, Daguerre, Provencio, and Cuarón families. In , El Paso del Norte was renamed in honor of Benito Juárez.

The city expanded significantly thanks to Díaz's free-trade policy, creating a new retail and service sector along the old Calle del Comercio (now Vicente Guerrero) and September 16 Avenue. A bullring opened in The Escobar brothers founded the city's first institution of higher education in , the Escuela Particular de Agricultura. That same year, a series of public works are inaugurated, including the city's sewage and drainage system, as well as potable water. A public library, schools, new public market (the old Mercado Cuauhtémoc) and parks dotted the city, making it one of many Porfirian showcases.[clarification needed] Modern hotels and restaurants catered to the increased international railroad traffic from the s on.

Taft and Díaz, historic first presidential summit, Ciudad Juárez, Mexico,

In , Díaz and William Howard Taft planned a summit in Ciudad Juárez and El Paso, a historic first meeting between a Mexican and a U.S. president, and also the first time a U.S. president would cross the border into Mexico. But tensions rose on both sides of the border over the disputed Chamizal strip connecting Ciudad Juárez to El Paso, even though it would have been considered neutral territory with no flags present during the summit. The Texas Rangers, 4, U.S. and Mexican troops, U.S. Secret Service agents, FBI agents and U.S. marshals were all called in to provide security.Frederick Russell Burnham, the celebrated scout, was put in charge of a private security detail hired by John Hays Hammond. On October 16, the day of the summit, Burnham and Private C.R. Moore, a Texas Ranger, discovered a man holding a concealed palm pistol standing at the El Paso Chamber of Commerce building along the procession route. Burnham and Moore captured, disarmed, and arrested the assassin within only a few feet of Díaz and Taft.

The city was Mexico's largest border town by —and as such, it held strategic importance during the Mexican Revolution. In May , about 3, revolutionary fighters under the leadership of Francisco Madero laid siege to Ciudad Juárez, which was garrisoned by regular Federal troops under the command of General Juan J Navarro. Navarro's force was supported by civilian auxiliaries and local police. After two days of heavy fighting most of the city had fallen to the insurrectionists and the surviving federal soldiers had withdrawn to their barracks. Navarro then formally surrendered to Madero. The capture of a key border town at an early stage of the revolution not only enabled the revolutionary forces to bring in weapons and supplies from El Paso, but marked the beginning of the end for the demoralized Diaz regime.[19]

During the subsequent years of the conflict, Villa and other revolutionaries struggled for the control of the town (and income from the Federal Customs House), destroying much of the city during battles in and Much of the population abandoned the city between and Tourism, gambling, and light manufacturing drove the city's recovery from the s until the s. A series of mayors in the s–s, like Carlos Villareal and René Mascareñas Miranda, ushered in a period of high growth and development predicated on the PRONAF border industrialization development program. A beautification program spruced up the city center, building a series of arched porticos around the main square, as well as neo-colonial façades for main public buildings such as the city health clinic, the central fire station, and city hall. The cathedral, built in the s, gave the city center the flavor of central Mexico, with its carved towers and elegant dome, but structural problems required its remodeling in the s. The city's population reached some , by

Juárez has grown substantially in recent decades due to a large influx of people moving into the city in search of jobs with the maquiladoras. As of [update] more technological firms have moved to the city, such as the Delphi Corporation Technical Center, the largest in the Western Hemisphere, which employs over 2, engineers. Large slum housing communities called colonias have become extensive.

Juárez has a long, notorious history of drug trafficking and the intense related violence.[20] Mexico's first homegrown cartel, run by Ignacia Jasso, was seated in the city, and for a time controlled much of the border drug trade.[21] Today the Juárez Cartel controls the routes in Juarez. Related violence in the city is responsible for more than unsolved murders of young women from to [WP:NEEDCITE]

Ciudad Juárez has many affluent neighborhoods, such as Campestre, Campos Elíseos, and Misión de Los Lagos. Other neighborhoods, including Anapra, Chaveña, and Anáhuac, would be considered more marginal, while the remaining neighborhoods in Juárez represent the middle- to working-class, for example, Infonavit, Las Misiones, Valle de Juárez, Lindavista, Altavista, Guadalajara, Galeana, Flores Magón, Mariano Escobedo, Los Nogales, and Independencia.

Between the s and s, Juárez saw a high level of population growth due in part to the newly established maquiladoras. The end of the Bracero Program also brought workers back from border cities in the U.S. through Ciudad Juárez, contributing to the growing number of citizens.[27]

The average annual growth in population over a year period [–] was %.[28] According to the population census, the city had 1,, inhabitants, while the municipality had 1,, inhabitants. During the last decades the city has received migrants from Mexico's interior, some figures state that 32% of the city's population originate outside the state of Chihuahua, mainly from the states of Durango (%), Coahuila (%), Veracruz (%) and Zacatecas (%), as well as from Mexico City (%).[28] Though most new residents are Mexican, some also immigrate from Central American countries, such as Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua.[citation needed]

However, a March article noted there has been a mass exodus of people who could afford to leave the city due to the ongoing violence from the Mexican Drug War. The article quoted a city planning department estimate of over , abandoned homes, which could roughly be the equivalent of , people who have left the city due to the violence.[29] A September article in The Guardian said of Ciudad Juárez: "About 10, businesses – 40% of the total – have shut down. A study by the city's university found that , houses have been abandoned and , people have left."[30]


The city is governed by a municipal president and an seat council. The president is Armando Cabada Alvidrez, who won as an Independent candidate in Six national parties are represented on the council: the PRI, the National Action Party, Ecologist Green Party of Mexico, Party of the Democratic Revolution, Labor Party and the New Alliance Party.[31]

Violence towards women in the municipality increased dramatically between and the mids,[32] with approximately girls and women murdered[33] and at least women reported missing.[32] Escalating turf wars between the rival Juárez and Sinaloa Cartels led to increasingly brutal violence in the city beginning in [citation needed]

In , the Juárez police department dismissed approximately officers in an effort to clean up corruption within its ranks.[34] Recruitment goals set by the department called for the force to more than double.[35] In , a vigilante group calling itself Juárez Citizens Command threatened to put a stop to all the perpetrators of violence if the government continued to fail to curb the violence in the city.[36] Government officials expressed concern that such vigilantism would contribute to further instability and violence.[37]

In , General Moreno and the Third Infantry Company took over the fight against the cartels in town. They were removed in , with the general and 29 of his associates now in custody and awaiting trial for charges of murder and civil rights violations.[38][39]

In response to increasing violence in the city, the presence of the Mexican Armed Forces and Federal Police has almost doubled. By August there were more than soldiers augmented by an expanded and highly restaffed municipal police force.[40]

As of [update], Juárez's murder rate placed #2 of the highest reported in the world, at murders per , inhabitants. Journalist Charles Bowden, in an August GQ article, wrote that multiple factors, including drug violence, government corruption and poverty, led to a dispirited and disorderly atmosphere that permeated the city.[20][41]

Crime reduction[edit]

After the homicide rates escalated to the point of making Ciudad Juárez the most violent city in the world, violent crime began to decline in the early s.[42] In , homicides were at their lowest rate since when drug violence flared between the Sinaloa and Juárez Cartel.[43] That trend has continued in with homicides reported, the lowest number since [44] Explanations for the rapid decline in violence include the Sinaloa Cartel's success in defeating its rivals,[45] as well as federal, state and local government efforts to combat crime and improve the city's quality of life.[citation needed]

The cause of the reduction in crime is the subject of speculation. One theory attributes it to deals the rival gangs made to coexist once the federal police were withdrawn in Another holds that a more powerful trafficking network, such as Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's Sinaloa cartel, might have moved in and restored a kind of "order among thieves."[46] Others attribute it to the end of the cartel war between Juárez and Sinaloa,[47] the arrest or dismissal of many policemen with cartel ties,[48] resolutions reached by liaisons between government and a group of local leaders called "La Mesa de Seguridad y Justicia",[49] and the creation of an anti-extortion squad to combat extortion inflicted upon local companies.[50] Crime was significantly reduced from to , with 3, homicides in and in [51] In , there were only homicides.[49]

The decrease in crime inspired more business in the city. Some citizens who left because of the violence have since returned with their families.[46] Many of them had moved their businesses to El Paso.[52] In addition, U.S companies are investing more in Juárez.[48] Community centers work with victims of crime and teach women how to defend themselves. Citizens have also formed neighborhood watch groups and patrol neighborhoods.[46] "La Fundacion Comunitaria de la Frontera Norte" is giving young people career opportunities and giving people hope.[49]Technology HUB is a startup incubator working to diversify the city's economy and move the regions low-skill manufacturing industry into an innovation cluster.[53] Its economic development projects are in line with the research of University of Berkeley Professor Enrico Moretti. Innovation economies are found to be more adaptive to shifting tech and trade conditions and more resilient to the kind of civil unrest that plagued Ciudad Juarez in the past.[54] City officials have said that they have plans to increase tourism in the city.[48] For example, in April , the city created a new campaign to increase tourism called "Juarez is waiting for you".[48] That same month, U.S. representative Beto O'Rourke visited Juárez to give a speech about how much Juárez has changed for the better.[48] A children's museum was opened in honor of the children who lost their parents during the violent years. Businesses that were closed because of the violence and extortion have reopened in recent years.[50] The city's violence was depicted in the film Sicario, drawing criticism and calls for a boycott from Juarez mayor Enrique Serrano Escobar, who said the film presented a false and negative image of the city. He said the violence the film depicted was accurate through about , and that the city had made progress in restoring peace.[55][56]

In popular culture[edit]

Economy and infrastructure[edit]

The El Paso Regional Economic Development Corporation indicated that Ciudad Juárez is the metropolis absorbing "more new industrial real estate space than any other North American city."[63] The Financial Times Group through its publication The Foreign Direct Investment Magazine ranked Ciudad Juárez as the "City of the Future" for –[64] The El Paso–Juárez area is a major manufacturing center. CommScope, Electrolux, Bosch, Foxconn, Flextronics, Lexmark, Delphi, Visteon, Johnson Controls, Toro, Lear, Boeing, Cardinal Health, Yazaki, Sumitomo, and Siemens are some of the foreign companies that have chosen Ciudad Juárez for business operations.[65][66]

The Mexican state of Chihuahua is frequently among the top five states in Mexico with the most foreign investment.[67] Many foreign retail, banking, and fast-food businesses have locations within Juárez.

In the s, traditional brick kilns made up a big part of the economic informal sector. These were typically located in the poorer regions of Juárez. The kilns used open-air fires, where certain materials that were burned generated a lot of air pollution. Along with rapid industrialization, small brick kilns have been a big contributor to the high amount of air pollution in Ciudad Juárez.[68] While the Ciudad Juárez economy has largely been dependent on Maquiladora program, business leaders have undertaken initiatives to upskill and secure the city are larger stake in the global manufacturing economy.[69]Technology Hub is a business incubator that works with regionally based companies, on programs in skill development, and the transition into automation and industry [70]


Juárez has four local newspapers: El Diario, El Mexicano, El PM and Hoy. El Norte was a fifth, but it ceased operations on April 2, , following the murder of journalist Miroslava Breach because,[71] the paper explained, the recent killings of several Mexican journalists made the job too dangerous.[72]

Digital NewsPapers[edit]


Public bus system[edit]

The main public transportation system in the city is the public bus system. The public buses run the main streets of Ciudad Juárez throughout the day, costing eight pesos (less than 40 cents) to ride one. Due to the aging current bus fleet being considered potentially outdated, the municipal government is working on replacing the buses with new ones, along with improving the bus stops, such as by equipping them with shade.[citation needed]

The ViveBus bus rapid transit (BRT) system opened to the public in November with the first route of five planned. The project was made a reality with the collaboration of the local municipal government, the private enterprise of Integradora de Transporte de Juárez (INTRA) as well as other city government agencies. Studies have shown that the current bus system averages 8&#;mph (13&#;km/h) while the new system is projected to average 16&#;mph (26&#;km/h). The BRT system studies conducted by the Instituto Municipal de Investigacion Y Planeacion project a daily ridership of 40,

The first of the five routes opened to users in late and is officially named Presidencia-Tierra Nueva and has 34 stations distributed along the north to south corridor. The route starts at Avenida Francisco Villa, follows north to Eje Vial Norte-Sur then veers left at Zaragoza Blvd. and ends at Avenida Independencia and the elevated Carretera Federal 2.[citation needed]


The city is served by Abraham González International Airport, with flights to several Mexican cities. It accommodates national and international air traffic for the city. Nearby El Paso International Airport handles flights to cities within the United States.

International border crossings[edit]

View of El Paso from the Ciudad Juárez side of the border

The first bridge to cross the Rio Grande at El Paso del Norte was built in the time of New Spain, over years ago, from wood hauled in from Santa Fe.[75] Today, this bridge is honored by the modern Santa Fe Street Bridge, and Santa Fe Street in downtown El Paso.

Several bridges serve the El Paso–Ciudad Juárez area in addition to the Paso Del Norte Bridge also known as the Santa Fe Street Bridge, including the Bridge of the Americas, Stanton Street Bridge, and the Ysleta Bridge also known as the Zaragoza Bridge.

There is also a land crossing at nearby Santa Teresa, New Mexico, and another one, the Tornillo - Guadalupe International Bridge located 50&#;km southeast of Juarez City.


Light rail[edit]

El Paso City Lines operated a streetcar system in Juárez from until [76]

Heavy rail[edit]

Mexico North Western Railway's subsidiary operation, the El Paso and Southwestern Railroad, extended into the US at El Paso, Texas but no longer operates passenger rail.[77]


According to the latest estimates, the literacy rate in the city is in line with the national average: % of people above 15 years old are able to read and write.[28]

Juárez has about 20 institutions of higher learning [1]. The largest ones are among the following: 1. The Instituto Tecnológico de Ciudad Juárez (ITCJ), founded in , became the first public institution of higher education in the city. 2. The Autonomous University of Ciudad Juárez (Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez, UACJ), founded in , is the largest university in the city. It has several locations inside of the city including the Institute of Biomedical Sciences (Instituto de Ciencias Biomédicas, ICB), the Institute of Social and Administrative Sciences (Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y Administrativas, ICSA), the Institute of Architecture, Design and Art (Instituto de Arquitectura, Diseño y Arte, IADA), the Institute of Engineering and Technology (Instituto de Ingeniería y Tecnología, IIT) and the University City (Ciudad Universitaria, CU) located in the southern part of Ciudad Juárez. The IADA and IIT share the same location appearing to be a single institute where the students from both institutes share facilities as buildings or classrooms with the exception of the laboratories of Engineering and the laboratories of Architecture, Design and Arts. The UACJ also has spaces for Fine Arts and Sports.These latter services are considered among the best because they recluse nearly 30, participants in sports such as swimming, racquetball, basketball and gymnastics, and arts such as Classical Ballet, Drama, Modern Dance, Hawaiian and Polynesian Dances, Folk dance, Music and Flamenco. 3. The Faculty of Political and Social Sciences of the Autonomous University of Chihuahua (Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua, UACH) which has delivered 70% of the city's media and news crew, is located in the city. 4. The local campuses of the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (ITESM) The Monterrey Institute of Technology opened its campus in It is ranked as "third best" among other campuses of the institution, after the Garza Sada campus in Monterrey and the Santa Fe campus in Mexico City.[citation needed]. Technology Hub Juarez offers after school coding program, Kids 2 Code[78] and is home to Fab Lab Juarez, a facility training people of all ages in the use of 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers and prototyping technology.[79] 5.
