This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Crime and violence related to drug trafficking in Mexico and Central America have increased in recent years and pose a threat not only to those areas but to the U.S. as well, particularly along the Southwest border. The Merida Initiative, announced in 2007, provides about $1.6 billion in law enforcement support to Mexico and Central American countries. The Dept. of State (State) manages the Initiative while other U.S. agencies play key roles in implementation. This report examines: (1) the status of Merida program implementation; (2) State's strategy for implementation; and (3) coordination mechanisms in place for Merida. The report reviewed agency documents and conducted fieldwork in Mexico and Central America. Charts and tables.
