We send so much money to keep it at bay,but yet most of the people who are locked is because of small crimes that include marijuana offenses. If you ask me it seems as if the government is up to something or this is all part of an elaborate plan. The government if they want to could regulate the drug and benefit the economy. “If we substitute a tax on marijuana cigarettes equal to the difference between the local production cost and the street price people currently pay--that is, transfer the revenue from the current producers and marketers (many of whom work with organized crime) to the government, leaving all other marketing and transportation issues aside we would have revenue of (say) $7 per [unit]. If you could collect on every cigarette and ignore the transportation, marketing, and advertising costs, this comes to over $2 billion on Canadian sales and substantially more from an export tax, and you fore-go the costs of enforcement and deploy your
Name CJA 394 Global Crimes Analysis Date Global Crimes Analysis The safety of the people in the world is an issue called global crime. Trading weapons, human and drug trafficking, and groups of prostitutes are all things that may be involved in international, or global, crime. There are some nations that do not follow rules or guidelines and that are sold nuclear weapons by other smaller, less powerful nations. One of the issues that has been taken way out of control is human trafficking. According to International Trafficking (2010), victims of human trafficking are traded inside of their own country's border as well as inside of the border of another country.
Hannah McLeod Mr. Ziehm American Literature 5 February 2012 Not For Sale The United States serves as a passage way and harbor of many human traffickers throughout the nation, “each year about 17,500 individuals are brought into the United States and held against their will as victims of human trafficking” (Talati 1). Human trafficking may be defined as the acquiring of humans as unwilling subjects for the purpose of making a profit. Next to the drug industry, human trafficking is now the most profitable and fastest growing criminal industry in the world (Anderson 8). This industry is today’s modern time slavery. Although the severity of this situation is not fully known because of its secrecy, organizations are working towards this goal
The interdiction and law enforcement strategy is to help other governments seize illegal narcotics before they reach America. (Perl, 2006) “The Department of State funds anti-narcotics law enforcement training programs for foreign personnel from more than 70 countries.”(Perl, 2006) And a key tool for drug dealers is the extradition to the United States to be prosecuted. International Cooperation; with this the Department of State works with other nations to control the growing, production and the trafficking of drugs. This doesn’t have to be a part of the main cocaine countries; this can include countries that do not have huge drug trafficking issues like South American has. (Perl, 2006) With the help of many other countries, the war on drug trafficking can significantly be more successful with seizing trafficked drugs and help eradicate the drug
Illegal immigration from Mexico is having a negative social impact on the United States as well. According to 2009 census data, “Roughly 1 in 5 people in the U.S. speaks a language other than English at home, with Hispanics representing the largest share.” (Rodriguez, 2006) 25% of inmates in United States jails are illegal immigrants from Mexico. Marrying an American citizen for those who cannot obtain citizenship has become more popular than before. This is why I believe the border between the United States and Mexico should be closed, to only allow those who want to become Americans, to create a better life for themselves and their families; not to molest and take advantage of the United States and its
Drug Trafficking in the United States Jason Reed ENG122 English Composition Instructor McKenna September 23, 2012 Drug Trafficking in the United States Over forty years ago, the world declared the war on drugs. Today, after decades of failing to control drug consumption, the drug problem has emerged and allowed violent drug traffickers to expand their networks and corrupt even more Mexican and American government officials. The use of violence by traffickers against authorities and witnesses represents a major challenge to the neighboring countries as the ultimate guarantor of law and order within their borders. This in turn, has allowed drug cartels to move illegal narcotics freely throughout Mexico in an attempt to smuggle them
As the rot spreads, even more crime is generated by the climate of disorder and ennui it produces” ( Duk, Steven B. Dec. 1993). Drug prohibition also fosters crime by producing officialcorruption. The news media are full of accounts of cops caught stealing money or drugs from dealers or simply taking money to look the other way. Even judges and prosecutors are sometimes implicated. Such pervasive corruption denigrates and demoralizes all law enforcers and causes disrespect for law among citizens.The distractive effects of the drug war on law enforcement indirectly but profoundly encourage crime.
Illegal immigration is as old as U.S. immigration law... With changes in U.S. immigration law and economic and political conditions in the United States and other countries, the nature and characteristics of illegal immigration have also changed." Chiswick believes that the entire nature of illegal immigration has completely changed, and so should that of the laws America holds against them. Many economists believe that illegal immigration does not impact the country in such a negative way that many believe. For unskilled workers, illegal immigration may cause these people to be hurting of work, only because many times illegal immigrants choose to do work in a uncostly manner. Other than that, our country overall benefits from these people that we call “illegal aliens”.
As drug smugglers have started to participate in human trafficking and one of the groups at most risk to be kidnapped is people who go through Mexico to get to the U.S. It isn’t uncommon for people trying to immigrate illegally to go missing trying to get to the U.S. Recently 72 illegal immigrants from Central trying to get to the U.S were found dead. It is suspected they were killed for refusing to do work for drug traffickers. The second reason for a decline in illegal immigration is an improving Mexican economy.
But these challenges do not stop me from continuing to find solutions to eradicate slavery and empower its survivors as part of the solution. A significant number of people believe that slavery ended in 1863, when in fact, modern slavery exists in every corner of the globe. Not just in remote parts of Southeast Asia, but in your hometown, in your backyard. In America, there are 60,000 men, women, and children enslaved at this very moment. Global human trafficking is the second largest and fastest-growing organized crime in the world.
