The Southern border between Mexico and the United States continues to come under siege from narco-traffickers, human smugglers, and the highly trained paramilitary style forces that protect them. They are engaged in a multibillion dollar enterprise and the players are well funded, well organized and heavily armed. Murder, kidnappings, extortion and terror in different forms are the preferred methods of gaining and maintaining control of highly prized and lucrative routes into the US. So far this year the level of violence along the border has escalated to unprecedented levels and is spilling over onto the US side. The source of this violence emanates from Mexican cartels such as the Sinalo, Tijuana, Gulf/Los Zetas, and La Familia who are locked in mortal combat for control of the narco-empire. . . .
