Arizona Sen. John McCain sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano yesterday calling on Napolitano to send National Guard troops to the "southern border region" between the U.S. and Mexico.
McCain points to "the continued and apparently growing violence" along the border in his letter, which you can see here. He notes the death of an Arizona rancher who was shot to death on his property and writes that the federal government should act to "curb this violence and protect its citizens from criminals coming across the border from Mexico."
Mexican officials, however, have a different opinion. Mexico is not only voicing irritation, but saying it will undercut the battle against Mexico's powerful drug cartels.
Mexico Secretary of the Interior Fernando Gomez Mont said last week the U.S. medical marijuana trend was "worrisome" and "complicates in a grave way" efforts to resolve Mexico's soaring drug-related violence.
