Iron River of U.S. Guns Fueling the Mexican Drug War
Sen. De León’s Reso Promotes Greater Fed Enforcement
(Sacramento, CA) – Responding to the obscene flow of weapons thatimmigrate freely across the U.S. border to Mexico, Senator Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) has introduced Senate Joint Resolution 10 (SJR 10) urging the President and the Congress of the United States to pursue a comprehensive approach to stem the trafficking of illicit United States firearms to Mexico.
“Lawlessness is rampant on our southern border and most people are not aware that the illegal trafficking of U.S. firearms is fueling the violence,” said Senator De León. “I’ve introduced SJR 10 to push our Federal Government to halt the iron river of U.S. guns flowing illegally into Mexico. By doing so we can assure safety for the citizens of the United States and Mexico.”
