El Paso, Texas (our home) is the second safest city in the U.S., but it is only minutes away from one of the most dangerous cities in the world, Ciudad Juárez, Mexico
Illegal drugs bring corruption and violence to all those who are involved in their reality. The city of Ciudad Juárez in Mexico has become so corrupted by drug trafficking that even federal officials are controlled by the drug cartel leaders and this brings danger, violence and death to more and more victims each year.
Illegal drugs come through Mexico to the United States and are distributed through the Mexican drug cartels' complex networks of influence and the corrupt government officials that they control. These cartels are dangerous organizations that dominate the Mexican cities on the U.S.-Mexico border. El Paso, Texas is on the border with Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, one of the most violent cities in the world.
