Corruption within Mexico’s government is mainly due to the long drug war and police officers betraying the system. This needs to be fixed by wiping out the drug cartel and rebuilding the government. Corruption within Mexico had long existed even before Mexico was its own independent country. After being under Spain’s rule for three centuries, the country faced continuous political
What is the biggest cause of crime in Central America? Cocaine, is by the far that biggest factor in crime all along Central America, the external trade of cocaine along with outside governments trying to stop it, have led to organized crime and drug mafias forming within the countries of Central America.

His cartel is the biggest supplier of heroin and cocaine in the US, and is convicted of federal trafficking and organized crime; therefore he can be legally tried and imprisoned in the United States. A Mexican official court said that if he were caught again, he would be extradited to the US.

Some historians characterize these businessmen as “robber barons” who used extreme methods to control and concentrate wealth and power, and being supported by multiple sources, this statement is justified but only to some extent. A prime example of corrupt businessmen is seen through a popular political cartoon. This cartoon, document 5, portrays the Standard Oil Company as a manipulative octopus that controls the government and the economy. With the rise of powerful businesses in the late 19th century, the artist behind this cartoon hoped to expose the corrupt foundation of these million dollar companies. The big businessmen are clearly portrayed as

Steven Soderbergh’s famous movie, Traffic (2000) provides viewers with heavy insight at the “war on drugs” in the United States. It discusses this international drug issue through three twisted stories. The first story is mainly set in Mexico City and other parts of the country, in which a new “drug czar” of Ohio state Supreme Court, Robert Wakefield (Michael Douglas), is appointed.

In the era of globalization, socio-economic disparities play a significant role in as trans-national human trafficking generally occurs from poorer to wealthier nations.
