There is only one legal gun store in Mexico, and owning a gun is a lengthy process and is tightly regulated. People in the US will buy guns on behalf of others who have strong ties in drug trafficking. These guns are used to kill Americans and Mexicans alike. It is my proposition with the cooperation of American border control, that we inflict stricter searches at the Mexican border for guns. The US foreign affairs committee approved a bill that gave 73.5 million dollars to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, to stop this illegal smuggling.
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

Once this initiative was officially put into action, ports of entry in the United States from South America became virtual war zones. In Miami, for example, there was a homicide rate of 70 people per 100,000 (Hyland). You can’t have crime without a source of the crime.
The United States of America has been through many wars, wars concerning many things such as land oil, pride and respect. However, when the United States went to war with Mexico, it was planned over greed. The Mexican- American war was a war provoked by the United States, in efforts to expand the coasts of the country. Mexico was a small underprivileged country who had previously to the war had already lost part of their country (Texas). Needless to say this war was cut throat and violent, it was however one of the smartest business decisions America has ever made.
The Mexican revolution that started around 1910 was a cornerstone that changed the history of Mexico. The dictatorship of Diaz who was the president of Mexico fro over 35 years was one of the many reasons that people decided to rebel against his regime. The economic situation in Mexico at that time was not encouraging and discrimination between rich and poor was practiced heavily on the people. Many people were left unemployed, which drove most of them to become outlaws and criminals. Another reason that might have contributed to the revolution to ignite was the exploitation of peasants and other workers.
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: - A SHAME TO HUMANITY Human trafficking is a crime against humanity and is the third largest organized crime after drugs and the arms trade across the globe. It involves an act of recruiting, transporting, transforming, harboring or receiving a person through a use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them.

The United Nations estimate that between 800,000 and 4 million men, women and children are deceived, recruited, transported from their homes and sold into slavery around the world each year.
Germany economic situation became so bad and unbearable that they had to use a ransom sums of money in a wheel borrow to buy a loaf of bread. In addition, the treaty of Versailles posed a great financial burden on the German because Germans had to pay a huge sum of money to their opponents. By the end of the war, 10 000’s of German soldiers died of poison gas, which was instituted by US in the war. The poison gas infiltrated armies lungs and blinded most of them including Adolf Hitler. Fortunately for Hitler, he regained his sight and was awarded with blind cross.

To begin, both Sternberg and Walters show great concern about the serious drug problem in America. Sternberg states that American is losing the war on drugs people need a solution to solve the drug problem. He mentions that death toll from heroin increased a lot since 2010, we have to do something for this. Like Sternberg, Walters also realized that drug has become a very serious problem in America.

was not justified into going into war with Mexico was that the Annexation of Texas was unofficial. “From Mexico’s point of view, the annexation of Texas was inadmissable for both legal and security reasons.” (Marquez 327). This quote shows that Mexico viewed this annexation as an unofficial and unfair act against the government and citizens of Mexico. Polk’s act of extending borders to California was also seen as unfair because that land belonged to Mexico.
Ready, Aim, Fire Through the past several years, the United States has experienced many different events changing the way people look at the world. Through this same time, it seems as if there has been an increase in the death toll to the lives of American citizens. From the bombing of the World Trade Center in 2001, to the Sandy Hook Shooting, the rate of mass killings in the U.S. looks to be at an all time high. President Obama and many other politicians believe that the answer to stopping all of these acts of terrorism is the further restriction of firearms in the country. The fact of the matter is, the further implication of restrictions to the right to keep and bear arms is not the key to stopping these mass murders.
This war was the first time the United States fought on foreign territory and occupied another nation 's capital. The United Sates only had around 1,700 deaths caused in battle during the war but suffered an additional 11,000 casualties from disease.
