I am a consultant and analyst with eight years of military law enforcement experience, six years of analytical experience covering Latin America, and over seven years of analytical experience covering Mexican TCOs and border violence issues. This blog is designed to inform readers about current border violence issues and provide analysis on those issues, as well as detailed focus on specific border topics. By applying my knowledge and experience through this blog, I hope to separate the wheat from the chaff...that is, dispel rumors propagated by sensationalist media reporting, explain in layman's terms what is going on with Mexican TCOs, and most importantly, WHY violence is happening along the US-Mexico border.

Sylvia-

I'm curious what judges hear asylum cases--U.S. District Court judges?

With the rise of DTO activity in Central America, have you had the opportunity to testify for an Central American asylum applicant?

Thanks again for an informative post--I think the perception is that the U.S. courts grant asylum willy-nilly whereas the reality (as demonstrated by your statistics) is something else altogether.

@Toni - I don't do CentAm cases, but the attorney who brought me in on this work specializes in that area. He was getting a ton of Mexico cases and referred them to me, and when I get CentAm cases, I refer them to him. I believe that @wmmckay on Twitter does this sort of work, too.
