    US Mexico Border States Crime Rates

     

    Although Homicide is higher in some Mexican States, Assault, Rape and Property Crimes are higher on the US side.

    Homicide in Mexico has increased dramatically due to the drug cartels trafficking into the US and purchasing guns from US shops.

    Car Theft in Mexico is also partly related to the drug cartel activity.
