On November 20, 2012, the US State Department updated its travel advisory warning for Mexico, advising US travelers to be aware that the Mexican government has been engaged in an extensive effort to counter Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) which engage in narcotics trafficking and other unlawful activities throughout Mexico. The advisory warns that US tourists have fallen victim to TCO attacks such as homicide, gun battles, kidnapping, carjacking and highway robbery. She holds an undergraduate degree in Spanish and Political Science, and a Certificate in Latin American Studies.

The Department’s earlier warning of avoiding non-essential travel to the northern states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Nuevo Leon, Sinaloa and Sonora, and other regions still remains unchanged.The change in travel warning is a result of Mexican President Felipe Calderon’s attack against drug cartels, beginning in 2006.
In a survey conducted by Fronteras, only 10 percent of people in the US believe the US is winning the war on drugs. Though Mexico has come under scrutiny due to its increase in crime, Calderon has defended his country, pointing out that there are a lot of more violent places in the world than Mexico, such as Puerto Rico, Colombia and the Dominican Republic--all of which have higher murder rates than Mexico.

The drug war continues to be a topic of debate in the US and Latin American countries grappling with the issue.
