America Abroad

Audio currently not available for this program.

Mexico: Looking Forward -- Mexico isn't just another neighbor to the U.S. It's also our third-largest trading partner, outpacing Japan, Germany and the U.K. combined. So what will a change in Mexico's government mean for the United States? On this edition of America Abroad, we'll go to the border to talk about the future of border security after the Fast and Furious scandal. We'll learn about the Institutional Revolutionary Party, its history, and what some Mexicans are doing to prevent it from backsliding to an anti-democratic past. And we'll examine corruption in Mexico's school system, looking at a teachers' union considered by some to be the most powerful in the world.
