Fronteras: Mexican Cartels Operating in the US
Fronteras: Mexican Cartels Operating in the US

Listen
AIR DATE: June 2, 2011

Mexican cartels have an intricate web of alliances to help them get drugs into the US and money and weapons back across the border.   Cartels use gangs in the US; they bribe local government officials; they launder money in US banks.
 
Fronteras, the regional multimedia news project covering the American Southwest, has a new series of reports "The Drug War at Home". We talk with three Fronteras correspondents about Mexican cartels operating inside US borders.
