I half-agree. Mexico is a manufacturer of much of the drugs, and a corridor of what they don’t manufacture. I think they have a responsibility to keep their own house in order, and shouldn’t be looking to us to solve their problems.

However, it is also our responsibility to secure our own border and control who or what flows in or out of it.

So, I say there’s blame on both sides of the border.
