"60 Minutes" Special Explores Dire Crisis in Mexico

The crisis in Mexico is escalating with each passing day and more and more media outlets are picking up on the startling news coming from south of the border. Anderson Cooper recently produced a special report for 60 Minutes addressing the current circumstances in Mexico, the causes and possible solutions. In the report, he touched on many topics we've reported on here at Latina.com, including the arms bazaar that US border towns have become for the drug cartels, the violence and threats the cartels have been using to intimidate civilians and police alike and how much responsibility the United States has to help our neighbor to the south.

Check out the video below, and tell us: What do you think should be done about the increasing violence in Mexico? Do you think the United States should get more involved?

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
