¶ … Crime is everywhere. People commit a variety of crimes for a variety of reasons. Four of some of the biggest and longstanding crimes people commit are human trafficking, drug trafficking, organized crime, and corruption.

"Recent studies link specific migrant groups to transnational criminal activities, such as drug smuggling, weapons running, trafficking of women and children, corruption, extortion, and so forth" Mexico has organized crime in the form of corrupted government officials, corrupted police force, drug trafficking, and human trafficking.
Unlike the other criminal activities, organized crime can be seen by some as more legitimate and long-term. The mafia in the United States for example, has those within that live off the profit gained from their criminal activities for decades and even go into legal employment afterward. Organized crime has been directly…
