WASHINGTON, D.C., March 8, 2011—Homeland Security Today’s award-winning coverage of the drug-related violence along the US-Mexico border continues as we shed light on two disturbing trends—the youthfulness of the individuals involved and the new ways smugglers are trying to get illicit drugs into the US.
