Mexican President Felipe Calderon has made it a top priority to rid his country of ruthless drug cartels. The response has been unprecedented violence across Mexico, with ruthless killings taking place in public squares and a Mexican police force scared to take to the streets, as they fear for their lives. A top level team of United States officials landed in Mexico today to collaborate on a plan to quell the violence and help Calderon take back his streets from the drug cartels. Sanho Tree, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies joins Alyona to discuss the significance of U.S. officials in Mexico and whether the new plan is an adequate one.
