The country is teetering on the brink of collapse after a massive earthquake and tsunami struck the coast of Guerrero state last month, sending tens of thousands of people fleeing to neighboring Mexico and killing at least 15 people.
The disaster has shaken the country and put a strain on the already fragile economy.
At least three people have died from dehydration and the state of Guerrero has reported that at least 50 percent of its territory has been destroyed.
The Mexican government says at least 1,000 miners died in the quake, and that it has ordered more than 500,000 workers to remain on the ground and not to go out of the country.
The government has ordered the government to shut down all schools, schools and universities, and to close all schools that serve more than 50,000 students.
In the past, the government has sought to keep mining jobs in Mexico and in the United States from becoming a problem.
But with the new wave of violence, that strategy may no longer be possible.
The U.S. government has not released the names of the miners who died, but a recent article in The Washington Post described a series of mining deaths that occurred in the southwestern state of Chiapas between 2012 and 2016.
It said the miners were killed by “a combination of negligence and intentional homicide.”
The government’s efforts to stem the violence have been mixed.
While it has taken steps to ban mining in the state, the Interior Department has not made any arrests and has not conducted a thorough investigation.
The Department of Labor and Homeland Security has also not taken any action.
