Whack-a-mole drug war: The Texas Valley Of Corruption | Fronteras

Part of an excellent series on the drug war on the U.S. side of the border, by Fronteras, a co-operative news project of a number of public radio stations in the southwest U.S. 

The Drug War At Home: The Texas Valley Of Corruption | Fronteras: "The southernmost tip of Texas is the 120-mile-wide Rio Grande Valley. This region is home to a string of small towns perched on the edge of Mexican states like Tamaulipas, where drug cartels have taken over entire cities. These cartels are expanding their reach north of the border, trapping many public officials in the United States in its web of corruption."
