    “Puerto Rico and the USVI are transshipment points for illicit drugs that are smuggled from source countries into the U.S. mainland as well as destination points for drugs distributed within the territories. Puerto Rico and the USVI are situated between the U.S. mainland and drug source countries such as Colombia and Peru, making them ideal gateways for the movement of illicit drugs onward to the U.S. mainland.”
