As Sinaloa cartel leader Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán goes on trial, VICE News explores his high-stakes case through the stories of people caught up in the drug war in the U.S. and Mexico.
VICE News Senior Reporter Keegan Hamilton travels to Michoacán where Mexico’s modern drug war began and continues to rage. To understand the effects of a seemingly endless cycle of crackdown, cartel re-alignment and civilians being displaced, Keegan tells the story of the right now in this region with unprecedented access to various sides of the war -- including the dominant Jalisco New Generation Cartel led by the DEA’s Most Wanted cartel boss El Mencho. Produced by VICE News’ Miguel Fernandez and Janice Llamoca. Subscribe and follow VICE News Reports podcast here: https://pod.link/1525769448 See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
