ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the failure of U.S. President George W. Bush to improve the U.S.-Mexico border security and prevent drug trafficking. Based on the Travel Alert of the government, majority of the cocaine available in the U.S. was smuggled by Mexican drug trafficking organizations. He adds that Bush did not talk about border security during his meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderon. He blames Bush for drug trafficking because of his reluctance to strengthen border security despite of the U.S. manpower and engineering capabilities.
