Faculty Fellow Guillermo Trejo (political science) has been quoted in several articles on violence in Latin America. The articles discuss how the war on drugs, which started in 2006, has continued to kill and displace thousands of people, specifically in Mexico due to the violence incited by the military and police.

Trejo comments that in 12 years of war, over 150,000 homicides have been associated with this type of conflict and he estimates that by 2024, Mexico will tally up to a quarter of a million deaths from these conflicts and the AMLO government.
