Jan Haaken talks with Mike Snedecker, an appellate lawyer, in another installment of the Left and the Law. Today they discuss violence near the Mexican border and portrayals of this violence in the United States as simply a Mexican problem. Fueling the violence are U.S. foreign policies, like NAFTA, that disenfranchise Mexicans and domestic policies, like the War on Drugs, that really empower the drug-cartels on both sides of the border.
