Mexico is under siege and the drug industry is constantly flourishing. The drug war is in a dark phase and has been for decades now and consequently which crop up problems in the Mexican government. The subject of drug trafficking in Mexico is vulnerable and most likely brings negative things to mind due to the violence it brings along. The drug trade and massive corruption have enabled the cartels to connect themselves to the Mexican state like bedbugs, slowly criminalising it. To understand the quantitative impacts of drug-trafficking it is essential to describe the scope of the industry.
Bolivia currently provides both and finds itself at the heart of a new criminal dynamic that threatens national and citizen security in this landlocked Andean nation.” ( McDermott, J.) These three sources , “ The International Drug War, Can Colombia Solve Its Drug Problem Through Peace? , and Bolivia: the New Hub for Drug Trafficking in South America,” all tie together in someway. All three sources give something about how other countries in the World are affected by drug trafficking.

The city of Las Vegas has changed rapidly from becoming a beautiful city to a violent place to live in. The city has seemed a rise in homicides as well in the last few years. The strong presences of these gangs are taking innocent lives and making the community a harder place to raise a family in. Many of the gangs in Vegas account for most the drug trade, as well as the staggering homicide rate. The gang problem is not only a problem in Las Vegas, but it is all over the world.
Initially my thesis was how in our society the narrative around Latinos was that they are all in the cartel because of “genetics”, but I contradicted this by stating that a small minority of Latinos are in the cartel because of poverty. However, I discarded my focus on this because most of the sources I would have implemented in my argument were clickbait. In my most recent argument, I decided to focus on one aspect of that cartel. It now revolves around the violence that comes from the cartel. The social narrative that I am choosing is that society stereotypes all Latinos as inherently being violent and therefore the Mexican cartel is violent.
Many get killed, a few get what they want. Many disappear, for cartel kidnap family members. Thousand die yearly. The drug industry among them is something already common for them, yet still dangerous. Gang members fight to have the greatest area to sell as many drugs as possible.
Even through “Mexican’s is willing to work for low wages, they help build the railroads in the 1930’s, American’s were and still is afraid, of foreigners stealing jobs” (Blakemore). In the 1930’s the murder rate was one of the highest ever in America.

Immigration agents blocked exists and arrested around 400 people, who were then deported to Mexico, regardless of their citizenship or immigration status” (Blakemore).

I will also tell you about the extreme amount of money that is made because of the drugs and how much drugs that are sent to the US. In 11. December 2006 the new president of Mexico Felipe Calderon decided to intervene the Mexican military in the war against drugs. Since this day the country have suffered very high loses of innocents and civilians deaths. The goal for the president when the intervened was to reduce violence.
Title: Gun Violence As I write this introduction, I am like millions of others watching the tragedy in Louisiana and Alabama caused by hurricane Katrina. A small but important part of the devastation and the challenge is the existence of individuals and groups of citizens from the area mostly impacted by the storm who used guns against their neighbours and those attempting to assist them. In any other industrialised nation, this will never happen because it will eventually cause the level of socialisation to decline due to the issue pertaining citizens getting the ready access towards guns. Most likely, gun violence is categorised as the most highly anticipated violence around the world because it is growing rapidly and causes
Also, as indicated by the yellow shaded portion you can see the extensive loss of land The Mexican States gave to the United States also resulting in great turmoil inside the previously Mexican Land with example such as the Fremont in the American-Mexican War 1846-1848.

By 1980 there were at least 8.5 million illegal immigrants were living in the United States due to a severe lack of border security
Human Trafficking in Oklahoma Individuals all over the world are at risk of being abducted and sold into some form of human trafficking or forced prostitution.

Worldwide, human trafficking is the second largest form of organized crime. This is especially true in Oklahoma. Interstate Highways forty, thirty-five, and forty-four all three run through Oklahoma reaching from coast to coast, and from Mexico to Canada.

Our courts, hospitals, and prisons are continuously being filled with drug abusers. Violent crime the ravages our neighborhood is a result of the drug trade.
Similar cases such as black on black violence and police on black violence that seem to be never ending spark anger and hate in the hearts of the African American race which has only turned into more crime and more violence. This violence and crime has turned tourist city into a war zone for the past decade and it paints a terrible picture for a city whose main financial income is its tourists. The black on black and police on black violence can be solved over time by a multitude of means one of them being the coming together of the African American community to protect themselves from racism, stereotypes, crime and self-inflicted
There have been many events that shaped the history on Mexico. The majority of the times it always comes at the expense of a human life. The Mexican American War in 1846 not only changed Mexico geographically but also let to many casualties. The drug cartels that are in search of power and land also take the lives of many in order for them to obtain their power. These are a couple of events that have shaped the history if Mexico, but in my opinion on of the most important one is the Cristeros War.
