Mexican President Felipe Calderon took his opposition to a new Arizona immigration law to Congress last Thursday, saying it "ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree."

President Calderon also asked Congress for "more cooperation" when it comes to fighting the war on drugs, and noted that his own government is sinking $10 billion a year into the battle. The United States has a moral obligation to help more, he argued.

Homeland Security Today has been covering this story.

Editor David Silverberg brings us up to date, and explains that the drug war has moved beyond the borders of Mexico.
