As the security situation in Mexico deteriorates and as federal, state, and local security forces in Mexico fail to stem the increasing violence, how should the United States respond. While US aid has traditionally focused on technology, training, and equipment, shall the Obama administration re-evaluate and perhaps redirect its aid to Mexico. This discussion will focus on a set of policy options and a series of promising potential policy priorities that could support Mexico’s efforts at addressing its domestic security concerns effectively while at the same time stemming the cross-border flow of violence into the United States.
