Acapulco's bishops call for US action on immigration, drug traffic
May 28, 2010
The Catholic bishops of Acapulco have called for cooperation between Mexican and US authorities to restore order to the border area, curbing the drug trade and associated violence and ensuring decent treatment for immigrants. The bishops said that comprehensive immigration reform in the US would ease the latter problem. They suggested that violence in Mexico was attributable to "arms trafficking coming from the northern neighbor," downplaying the importance of the drug traffic that flows toward the north.
