There are certain uncomfortable facts that Biden and López Obrador must face.

Joe Biden is about to visit Mexico for the North American Leaders’ Summit in Mexico City. The leaders must confront the intertwined issues of immigration and crime. Both Washington and Mexico City are guilty of negligence on migration, she says. U.S. political pressures driving this shift are (regrettably) comprehensible. Biden and López Obrador need to address the issue of insecurity in Mexico and the growing power of organized crime.

It is now clear that the current anti-crime strategy of the Mexican government has failed. This lawless environment has enabled an explosion in the production of fentanyl.
