On Sept. 7, 2021, news of the ruling rippled out from Mexico City, jolting the predominantly Roman Catholic country. Later that night, the capital shook again, as a nearly minute-long earthquake rattled the country’s southern coast.

MONTERREY, Mexico, May 23 (Reuters) – For thousands of migrants who have waited for months in northern Mexico, Monday was supposed to mark the moment when the U.S. government finally dropped a pandemic-era policy that has largely prevented them from seeking asylum in the United States.

Instead, May 23 marked the latest setback for many migrants, after a federal judge in Louisiana blocked U.S. authorities from lifting the sweeping policy, known as Title 42, which since March 2020 has empowered U.S. agents to quickly turn back over a million migrants to Mexico and other countries.

In Mexico, guns from the United States are a fact of life. The Mexican government estimates nearly 70% of guns trafficked into the country come from its northern neighbour. Meanwhile, a patchwork of weak gun laws in the US, where gun trafficking is not a federal crime, affects Mexico. The Mexican government is taking an unusual tack to try to stop the flow of arms: they have filed a lawsuit. With no sign of the cartel violence slowing, can a lawsuit stem the flow of guns to Mexico?
