US to put agents in Mexican Poice Force
The United States and Mexico have had talks, and have agreed to station US agents in Mexico to help control drug trafficking. Agents will be stationed in Ciudad Juarez, the most violent city in Mexico. They will there to aid in efforts to catch drug cartel leaders and their hit men. They will also be helping to share information collected through informants and intercepted communications. This is a big step, as the US has been reluctant to work with Mexico, largely because they are skeptical that Mexican officials can be trusted with US information.
