WASHINGTON — Amid all the gloomy and scary news about the Mexican drug cartel violence, comes a little good news.

USA Today reports that beefed up law enforcement patrols along the U.S. Mexican border may be helping prevent some of the Mexican drug cartel violence from spilling over to the U.S.

The paper reports that murders in El Paso fell from six in the first half of 2008 to four in the same period this year, according to the FBI.

In the first half of 2009, nearly 1,000 people were killed in the neighboring Mexican town of Ciudad Juarez.

What’s more in Tucson, murders fell from 30 in the first half of 2008 to nine during the same period in 2009, USA Today reported. The drop is part of an overall decrease in the murder rate in the U.S.
