In the recent presidential election, Mexico as a country of violence became a campaign issue. The United States and Mexico share a two thousand mile border; both countries are major trading partners; and U.S.-Mexican relations have long and complicated histories. This webinar explores this complex relationship through key historical moments from the Mexican Revolution to the contemporary drug wars by focusing on violence and policing on both side of the Rio Grande (Río Bravo).
