We reported earlier tonight about the drug violence in Mexico that is increasingly crossing over the border into American cities.

The Obama administration has said it will allocate $700 million this year — and more in the future — to help Mexico fight against drug cartels.

Some say this support is too little, inadequate to address such a massive problem.

Others say that it is too much, that the root of the problem is in Mexico — and the administration needs to be mindful of our troubled economy.

Tell us what you think.
