dc.description.abstractThis research demonstrates that political biases do exist toward Mexican asylum seekers, causing their cases to be denied; it further posits that by understanding Calderon's war on drugs as a failure that has made the state unable to protect its people and allowed the cartels to co-opt certain localities and regions of Mexico via corruption, Mexican asylum seekers have potential for successful asylum grants under the category of belonging to a particular social group and political opinion.en_US
