    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Jose Antonio Medina, aka Don Pepe, is presented to the press in Mexico City. Medina was arrested in the western state of Michoacan on Wednesday. Federal police say he smuggled heroin for La Familia cartel.

    WASHINGTON - Mexican criminal organizations have more than doubled heroin production in a year and have cemented their grip as the predominant wholesale suppliers of illicit drugs in the United States, a government report concluded Thursday.

    The National Drug Threat Assessment found that Mexican groups were the only drug trafficking enterprises operating in every region of the United States.

    The study by a unit of the Justice Department says Mexican traffickers increased the flow of heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States, while they increased production of those drugs in Mexico.

    every other country protects it's borders why not here? the mexicans themselves are very hard on the guaetemalans trying to cross THEIR border. leaking borders killed Rome (plus systemic corruption)

    I have to laugh at this because of Mexico's double standard. The government stated a while back they didn't want the US government to do anything drastic to the border because of the amount of money that came into Mexico from all of the illegal immigrants earning money in the US. If we beefed up the patrol on the boarder it would hurt the Mexican economy. How sad is that.

    Cut Mexico loose - let them sink or swim on their own! It's time.

    My guess is they don't have much choice but to increase their marketing of heroin and methamphetamines.

    They are losing the marijuana market one LEGALIZING STATE at a time.
