Organised crime and corruption play a large role in the persecution of Christians in Mexico. Criminal gangs and indigenous communities are responsible for attacks, fines, isolation and imprisonment of believers. Some Christians are denied access to basic services including water, electricity and education. Christians who publicly express their views are subject to criticism and harassment.
