Arms Trafficking
The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) makes over 30,000 arrests each year related to the sales and distribution of illegal narcotics.
• Over 32 percent of all inmates in state prisons in the United States were either under the influence of drugs or in possession of drugs when arrested (that number is above 25 percent for federal prison inmates).
• Drug trafficking in Mexico is a business worth over $50 billion per year.
• It is believed that the loss of the drug trafficking industry in Mexico would cause that country’s economy to shrink by over 63 percent.
• Illicit drug use is associated with several leading causes of death in the United States, including suicide, homicide, motor-vehicle injury, HIV infection, pneumonia, violence, mental illness and hepatitis.
• In 2008, the DEA seized the following amounts of drugs within the borders of the United States:

The Mara Salvatrucha, or MS13, is perhaps the most notorious street gang in the Western Hemisphere.
Origins in the poor, refugee-laden neighborhoods of 1980s Los Angeles, the gang's reach now extends from Central American nations like El Salvador and through Mexico, the United States, and Canada.
Activities: They rob, extort and bully their way into neighborhoods and have gradually turned to transnational crimes such as human smuggling and drug trafficking.
Consequences for Western Hemisphere:Their activities have helped make the Northern Triangle -- Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras -- the most violent place in the world that is not at war.
In October 2012, the US Department of the Treasury labeled the group a "transnational criminal organization," the first such designation for a US street gang.
