The President's National Drug Control Strategy seeks to disrupt the illicit drug industry as close to the source as possible. As a companion to the National Drug Control Strategy, this Strategy directs U.S. efforts to intercept drug shipments that manage to evade the robust international counterdrug efforts in the source zone and transit zone, thereby contributing to a layered defense of the homeland.

This Strategy aims to improve Federal counterdrug efforts on the Southwest Border in the following areas: intelligence collection and information sharing, interdiction at and between ports of entry, aerial surveillance and interdiction of smuggling aircraft, investigations and prosecutions, countering financial crime, and cooperation with Mexico.
