The State Department has issued a Travel Advisory for Mexico -- warning Americans that they could face a heightened risk of murder, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery if they go there because of a rise in violent crime in many parts of the country.

The advisory also says the US government could be limited in its ability to help any travelers who get into trouble in some areas. 

They should also reconsider traveling to the following states because of increased crime:    Chihuahua    Coahuila    Durango    Jalisco    Mexico state    Morelos    Nayarit    Nuevo Leon    San Luis Potosi    Sonora    Zacatecas
