US Marshal Explains Why More Fugitives Are Caught in Mexico

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Last year, U.S. authorities found nearly 100 fugitives hiding out in Mexico. In 1999, only 14 fugitives were found and returned. The increase is attributed to ongoing cooperation between United States and Mexican officials along the border.

We talk with Deputy U.S. Marshal Jose Valenzuela. He is assigned to the Mexico investigative-liaison unit in Phoenix, and explains why the United States is having more success finding fugitives.
