Obama Blames U.S. For Gun Violence In Mexico

President Obama on Friday addressed some major concerns in Mexico: The flow of guns and drugs across the U.S.-Mexican border.

“In the United States, we recognize our responsibilities. We understand that much of the root cause of violence that’s been happening here in Mexico for which so many Mexicans have suffered is the demand for illegal drugs in the United States, he said during a speech at the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City. “And so we’ve got to continue to make progress on that front.”

Obama said he is firmly against legalizing drugs and instead supports a comprehensive approach to combating demand that includes education, treatment and prevention as well as law enforcement.
