Shannon K. O'Neil, vice president, deputy director of studies, and senior fellow for Latin America studies at CFR sits down with James M. Lindsay to talk about the upcoming presidential election in Mexico and what it might mean for U.S.-Mexico relations.

For all the strides Mexico has made in structural reforms, economic growth will remain out of reach until the nation can enforce basic legal rules. You can't blame that on Donald Trump.
