His writing has especially centered on the Mexican drug war and Ciudad Juarez, the border city known as the epicenter of Mexican drug violence.

In his responses he argues the extreme violence seen in Mexico is a sign of a deeper societal disintegration resulting from governmental corruption, failed economic policies and the war on drugs”: here.

Indeed, while the flow of the Rio Grande River separates most of Texas from Mexico, guns stream into Mexico in an ‘iron river’ from the United States”: here.
