Drug violence in Mexico is a very harsh reality. Â The worst part is that the most violent part of the country is the part that borders the United States. Â Border states such as Arizona and New Mexico report higher than average drug related crimes. The situation has lead to increased tensions leading up to possible immigration reforms.
However, there is a lot of resistance against reforms.
