U.S. Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs

Founded in 1978, the U.S. Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs has led numerous missions abroad to help improve law enforcement institutions, combat crime, disrupt the illegal narcotics trade as well as take other measures aimed at stabilizing nations. But now, it faces its greatest challenge yet: helping to fight Honduran insecurity. Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, Kristen Madison is looking to her committee to help implement and improve upon the U.S. Strategy for Central America. While the goals of this operation is to help Honduras, the members of this committee must recognize that the two objectives of the U.S. Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs are, “(1) to reduce the entry of illegal drugs into the United States; and (2) to minimize the impact of international crime on the United States and its citizens”. With the above information in mind, will this committee be able to successfully implement effective solutions to fight insecurity in Honduras? Or will those insecurities begin to threaten the security of the United States and its citizens?
