ASNMSU and The New York Times to present lecture on the violence in Mexico

The Associated Students of New Mexico State University and The New York Times have teamed up to bring the students and community a lecture titled "Addicts, Guns and Money: How the U.S. Feeds the Violence in Mexico," at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29, in the Corbett Center Ballroom on the campus of NMSU.

As part of their collaboration, ASNMSU and The New York Times try each year to bring a speaker to NMSU that typically may not present to the campus. This year's speaker is chief of the Houston bureau of The New York Times, James C. McKinley Jr. McKinley previously served as chief of the Mexico bureau, as well as the Mexico correspondent.

"This topic is very relevant to the area right now. McKinley is very knowledgeable of the area and the issues we face," said ASNMSU executive assistant David Williams.

The lecture is open and free to NMSU staff, students and the community. A reception will follow the lecture in the Dona Ana Room of Corbett Center where McKinley will answer any questions attendees may have.
