Fusion reports that a violent crime wave that exploded throughout Guerrero, Jalisco and Michoacán, caused “other international companies to reconsider business operations in the area.” Coca-Cola was one company, after two of its employees were kidnapped and several delivery trucks were destroyed.

It also notes that the violence and extortion taking place throughout Mexico is a result of drug cartels waging war against each other since 2006, which has cost more than 100,000 lives.

And, an Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP) report, estimates that violence in Mexico represented a financial loss of 17.3 percent of the country’s GDP. The cost of violence “represents almost $1,946 per person in Mexico,” the report states. It also lists Guerrero, Jalisco, and Michoacán as some of the most violent states in Mexico.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
