Kingpins and corruption: Targeting transnational organized crime in the Americas

Criminal groups actively collaborate with corrupt officials to facilitate criminal enterprises such as human and drug trafficking, generating billions of dollars in illicit revenue and making the US dollar and US banks tools of this deadly trade. Fortunately, Washington has many policy instruments it can use with regional partners to proactively counter this threat.

The American Enterprise Institute is hosting an informative discussion on how the Trump administration can confront transnational organized crime in the Americas to mark the release of AEI’s new report, “Kingpins and corruption: Targeting transnational organized crime in the Americas.” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) will deliver opening remarks, followed by a panel discussion with some of the report’s contributors.
