The Mexican government and people are engaged in a war for the survival of their nation. Drug cartels are creating a situation of terror on the streets of the nation in their attempts to retain control of trafficking drugs into the United States. The Merida Initiative is a flawed agreement as it only addresses the issue of violence perpetrated by drug cartels. The issues of human rights protection, education, and economic stability within Mexico must be addressed in order to not only improve the situation but also eradicate the power and allure of the cartels.
