Washington Some lawmakers doubt Mexico's commitment to fighting drug trafficking. But drug czar Barry McCaffrey says President Clinton should certify that America's second-largest trading partner is cooperating with anti-drug efforts. 
A White House announcement on Mexico's efforts is expected today and officials indicate the administration will certify Mexico as an ally in the fight against drugs. Economic sanctions would be mandated if Mexico weren't certified. McCaffrey says refusing to certify Mexico would send an unwise and wrongheaded political message. He told a House panel yesterday that Mexico is struggling to rid itself of drug-related corruption.
