SPECIAL COVERAGE: Living With Wildfires: San Diego Firestorm 10 Years Later

A Tijuana drug lord is arrested off the coast of Baja California

Audio

Last week, the Arellano Felix drug cartel suffered a blow as drug enforcement officials both in the United States and Mexico nabbed a drug lord off the coast of Baja California, but how significant are the high-profile arrests of Francisco Javier Arellano Felix and his associates in the fight against drug trafficking, violence, and corruption? Guest host Maureen Cavanaugh discusses the notorious cartel, the message it sends to drug trafficking organizations, and how cartel activity has infiltrated San Diego in recent years.

Guests:

  • Anna Cearley (pictured) , reporter for the San Diego Union-Tribune covering border issues.
  • Victor Clark , director of the Binational Human Rights Center in Tijuana.
