Mexico City, Mexico

Summary:

At the same time southwestern governors and members of Congress are claiming the U.S.-Mexico border is an increasingly dangerous region in need of more federal attention and defense, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reports conditions are safer for CBP personnel and the public. Coupled with information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the government data demonstrate that city, county, and state indicators of crime and danger actually show a reduction in risk and violence.

Notes:

The Associated Press used FOIA to obtain the CBP study.
