Closing Arguments: Paying for the Border War

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

The Obama adminstration 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 the troubled economy.

So tonight, we ask you: Who do you think? 

Tell us.
