Committee on Foreign Relations United States Senate. July 2012
2012 is a presidential election year for both Mexico and the United States. In December, Mexico’s new president, Enrique Pen˜a Nieto, will assume office and the following month the victor of the U.S. presidential elections will commence his term. New leadership brings change, and in the Mexico-U.S. context, a leadership change could alter the existing bilateral security cooperation dynamic. Amidst potential change, this committee report strongly recommends maintaining robust bilateral support for the Me´rida Initiative, and calls upon the incoming Mexican and U.S. administrations to expand their support for Mexico’s reform of its judicial sector and police as the best means to reduce the high levels of violent crime in Mexico.
