Politicians, law enforcement clash over true extent of violence spillover from Mexico
A recent shooting that wounded an Hidalgo County sheriff’s deputy and killed a gunman allegedly working for the Gulf Cartel has reignited the debate on spillover violence from Mexico’s drug war.
While Mexico continues a bloody battle against cartels, a different clash is taking place in the U.S. — among law enforcement and politicians over the true extent of spillover violence.
One side, made up mainly of local law enforcement and U.S. federal agencies, claims that the violence mostly stops at the border. The other side claims the border region is being overrun by drug cartels.
