Introduction:

Drug trafficking and narco-violence present significant challenges for Mexico and have far-reaching implications for both Mexican and U.S. communities. Criminal organizations involved in drug trafficking pose threats to security, public health, and societal well-being. In this article, we delve into the challenges posed by drug trafficking organizations in Mexico, their impact on communities, and the collaborative efforts aimed at combatting drug cartels through joint law enforcement initiatives.
