Mexican drug trafficking org. (cartels) are a pervasive organized crime threat to the U.S. The cartels use firearms trafficked from the U.S. in their lucrative drug trafficking operations. Project Gunrunner (PG) is the ATF¿s national initiative to reduce firearms trafficking to Mexico and assoc. violence along the Southwest border. ATF received $22 million to support and expand PG. In May 2009, an evaluation of PG began. Aspects of ATF¿s PG expansion plans will enhance its ability to combat firearms trafficking. However, some planned PG activities do not appear to represent the best use of resources to reduce firearms trafficking, and issues with new office locations, staffing structure, personnel with Spanish proficiency need to be addressed.
