Risk Security Huge Mexico US
The violence that is happening on a near daily basis in northern Mexico near the US border is pretty concerning and I am fairly certain that is where the ranking comes from on that report. Mexico is finding dead policemen, decapitated people whose bodies and heads are miles or blocks apart, shootouts, etc...
They are fighting for the cooridor to the US for drugs. Once they get that resolved, what is to say they wont try to secure the other side of theh border for drug transfers? I think it is a very fair concern and would be near the top. Is it the absolute #1? Probably not, but it is a top concern and rightfully so.
