The examples of the Mexican president’s
softness towards Mexican drug cartels could fill hundreds of pages. The
point is that U.S. media continuously ignore the realities of Mexico and
the voices of the many thousands who grieve for their murdered or
disappeared loved ones. U.S. media avoid holding accountable the Mexican
political leaders who not only turn a blind eye to the cartels, but
often directly assist these criminal groups. This affects U.S.
governmental policy and approaches to Mexico, largely leaving frustrated
U.S. law enforcement agencies that are forced to balance their law
enforcement priorities with diplomatic concerns with a partially failed
narco-state. Voicing the diplomatic concerns of Mexico’s president
without also reporting on cartel ties is not only a disservice to the
citizens of the U.S., but it silences the voices of cartel victims and
their loved ones in Mexico and adds further complications to their
struggle for liberty and justice.

President Trump's first steps to secure the U.S. borders as he
promised during his run for the presidency have been greeted by protest,
demonstrations, and outrage.
Maybe we need to delve deeper into
why this is. Obviously one reason is that Democrats need a source of
cheap, easy and illegal votes. Establishment Republicans need a source
of cheap, easy, illegal labor. But what of the drug trade? How many high
ranking government officials on all levels profit from this?
had better pray day and night for Trump and all his DHS appointees. They
truly seek to shut down the cartels. The cartels and their government
puppets will be very unhappy.
Mexico is in bad need of an attitude adjustment. If Mexico is so great
why are so many Mexicans up here flying Mexican flags? Mexico sucks and
Mexicans know it.

However, you don’t need to be an expert on the U.S.-Mexico border to know there are indeed many bad hombres running around. My guess is that previous presidents have had this conversation before. How can you talk about violence on the U.S.-Mexico border without mentioning the people who operate in that area?
Since 2006, when President Calderon employed the military to fight the cartels, it is believed that 80,000 people have been killed. I keep hearing 100,000 from friends in Mexico. They tell me that a lot of dead people are not accounted for.
Let’s put that figure in some context. Mexico has a population of 100 million people. It would translate into 240,000 in the U.S. over a 10-year period.
