dc.description.abstract The following paper focuses on security in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, particularly in Texas. In the last few years, violence in its many manifestations has escalated unabated, despite major initiatives by both countries. A multitude of factors have contributed to the situation: culture, economic forces, and criminal organizations. The violence and its perpetrators have had substantial impact on communities, children, the press, the courts, the political system, and law enforcement. The current security situation in Mexico and, increasingly, the United States is strategically critical to both countries. The first step in developing an effective response is to put the magnitude of problem into perspective for those outside the borderlands. Only then can historic biases be set aside as both countries work toward the myriad solutions and initiatives that will likely be required.
