President Donald Trump repeatedly referenced the threat of drugs and violence brought to the US by Mexican cartels during his presidential campaign.
Less than a month into office, he signed an executive order directing the federal government to “thwart transnational criminal organisations” and calling for the removal of foreigners involved in those organisations.
