War at the border

Monday, March 23, 2009

The Takeaway has been following the spillover of Mexico's drug war where the national army is battling powerful cartels from tense border towns in west Texas and Arizona to the violent sisters cities of Ciudad Juarez and El Paso. Our partners the New York Times are beginning a series examining the influence and impact of cartels on both sides of the border. The Takeaway talks to New York Times national correspondent Randy Archibold, who is based in Los Angeles. His story in today's paper kicks off that series.

Read Randy Archibold's article, Mexican Drug Cartel Violence Spills Over, Alarming U.S., in today's New York Times.
