This timely event will explore the recent decision in Massachusetts as well as developments in the upcoming Arizona case. Fadia Ibrahim will introduce the litigation from the perspective of the Mexican government, both in terms of the harm in Mexico and the legal issues. Carlos Pérez Ricart will outline the stakes of the lawsuits from the security perspective in Mexico and the United States.
