Drug dealing in Mexico has been present in our society from long time ago, and trafficking between the US and Mexico has been risen a lot.

Drug Legalization is something that has been a topic that has been debated in Mexico due to all the drugs that are being produced and selled in Mexico day after day.
Crimes nearly skyrocketed due to the bootleggers organized crime of transportation and sales to sneak alcohol. Bootleggers began their smuggling of liquor into the United States by crossing the Canadian and Mexican borders and ship transportation from the Bahamas and Cuba. The smuggling became even more riskier and more expensive once the Coast Guards started searching the ships from coast to coast but bootleggers had other sources of supply. Gangs began to take control of the bootlegging industry and go from state to state picking up more people. Al Capone was the leader during the Prohibition era of Chicago.

Guatemalans began fleeing to the United States during the three and one-half-decade long Civil War (1960-1996), and today, child migration fueled by a desire to escape from violence is still very prevalent. Since 2012, child migration has been increasing, including a ninety percent increase between 2013 and 2014. Twenty-four percent of migrants are from Guatemala , a country that has one of the world’s top murder rates. Migration is very dangerous; many are injured, and gang-violence is common along the journey. In areas such as the Tierra Blanca, gangs kidnap people, demand money, and threaten death, and then pose as children’s relatives.
Many drug wars have happened as well, such as the Colombian, Mexican, Miami, Philippine and Puerto Rican drug wars. There have been film documentaries on this topic. As for the United States, most of its drugs come from Mexican drug cartels, in which 195 cities have been effected by this. An estimation of around $10 billion of the Mexican drug cartel’s profit have come from the United States, further pushing America’s economic dependence on drugs.

But the estimated number of unknown members could be much higher. According to a study performed by Colleen Cook, an analyst in Latin American Affairs, regarding Mexico’s cartels and their operations, it was not until a few years ago that the Mexican cartels began gaining a significant amount of power. Cook states the causes as being, “the demise of the Medellín and Cali cartels in Colombia. Closure of the cocaine trafficking route through Florida also pushed cocaine traffic to Mexico, increasing the role of Mexican cartels in cocaine trafficking.” (Cook pg. 7) The Cartels are practicing a very violent approach against other cartels and members of the State.
Drug prohibition creates a vast illegal market for drug production and distribution, enriching and empowering organized criminals, corrupt government officials and warring factions. The staggering levels of crime and corruption generated by the illegal drug trade in Mexico are among the most dramatic examples of social crises caused by prohibitionist policies. In Bolivia, the violence and economic hardship caused by the military suppression of coca production have threatened the country’s fragile democracy. And in Colombia, nearly all of the armed actors in the brutal, decades-old civil war have derived profits from the drug trade. The list is very
Human trafficking is a worldwide problem and one of the most shameful crimes in existence, since it robs millions of people worldwide dignity. The traffickers trick women, men and children from every corner of the planet and subject them daily to situations of exploitation. Although the most well-known form of trafficking in persons is sexual exploitation, hundreds of thousands of victims are also trafficked for the purpose of forced labor, prostitution, or organ harvesting. Considered as modern slavery, trafficking in persons involves the purchase and sale of people, where the victim is owned by another individual. “Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking).
There have been many causes due to the United States of America and Mexico border disputes. These include its extensive history through sources such as the several past wars and the countless disputes between residents. With the strong issue of territorial claims that contradict each other, treaties have been seen as useless with an even more inadequate attempt of fence construction as seen in Image 1. With many bandits and thieves in this area, drug trafficking and illegal immigration is an impending dilemma. Image 1 (NEED TO BE CAPTIONED) Already referred to With Mexico and the United States being quite contrasting in cultures, dilemmas are inevitable with Mexico being a developing country* and the United States of America being a developed one*.
