    Mexican government admits 80% of its populated territory is run by cartels, including key border areas

    Daniel Horowitz · June 3, 2019

    As of last year, the Taliban controlled or contested 46 percent of the districts in Afghanistan’s civil war. That was enough justification for us to keep our military perpetually engaged there in combat. What if you were told that 80 percent of Mexico’s territory is controlled by dangerous cartels, including all of the key smuggling routes at our border, and that the cartels are orchestrating all of the illegal immigration into our territory and bringing their members back and forth across our own border?
    Several weeks ago, the Mexican investigative journal Contralínea posted a map of Mexico prepared by the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), showing that 80 percent of the country’s 266 districts recently targeted for enforcement by the Mexican National Guard in a new counter-cartel operation are either controlled (57.5 percent) or disputed (23.3 percent) by the cartels. “Only 53 (19.92 percent) enjoy a low level of violence, which means that control is exercised by the authorities,” reported Contralínea on May 4, citing the data on the color-coded map.



    As you can see, Mexico looks awfully similar to Afghanistan in terms of how much is controlled by insurgent groups. The map of Mexico shows the districts in red fully controlled by the cartels, the ones in yellow in dispute, and the ones in green in control of the Mexican government. They all represent priority enforcement areas for a new Mexican National Guard operation against the cartels proposed by the AMLO regime.
    It’s important to note that according to Jaeson Jones, retired captain of Texas’ Department of Public Safety Intelligence and Counterterrorism Division, the priority areas color-coded on the map are mainly the areas where people live, and the ones left out are simply not a priority, not because the cartels don’t control most of those areas, but because there is little infrastructure or population in those areas.
    For example, the areas color-coded at the border are all the cities where people live, such as Tijuana, Mexicali, San Luis, Nogales, Juarez, Piedras Negras, Loredo, Miguel Alimen, and Reynosa (going west to east). And notice how every one of them is controlled by the cartels. All of the major smuggling areas leaning into California, Nogales, Arizona, El Paso, Texas, and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas are fully controlled by the cartels. The other areas are deserts with few people and no infrastructure, so they weren’t a priority for the Mexican government’s campaign, but they still affect our security because the cartels are sending large flows of migrants in areas like Antelope Wells, New Mexico, which are absolutely controlled by Sinaloa.
    Thus, we now see from an internal document of the Mexican government an admission that Mexico has essentially lost control over every important populated area in Mexico outside Mexico City and a few others, and particularly the most sensitive areas of the U.S.-Mexican border.
    So why do we not have Special Operations Command engaged in protecting our border from the cartels? Unlike the Taliban, cartel operatives come over our border all the time. Why do the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the State Department refuse to recognize the border issue as a military problem and agree to target the cartels as terrorists?
    If the Taliban were orchestrating a flow of mass migration across parts of Afghani-controlled territory, strategically shutting down our security, and profiting from it, we would instantly take military action. When Mexican cartels are placing our own country in mortal danger, why is that not reason enough to treat this is a military threat instead of an immigration issue?
    What is amazing is that Border Patrol and the National Guard are ordered not to engage the cartels and armed smugglers at all and cannot nab any of them even a few feet over our border for concern of violating Mexico’s sovereignty. We won’t even fight back when they detain and disarm our regular military units on our own side of the river. Yet, we now see that the Mexican government itself admits it has no sovereignty over that area. Why should we allow our sovereignty to be trampled by cartel figures going back and forth with impunity when fighting them won’t even violate Mexican sovereignty and will actually help it?
    Our government is fully aware of this dynamic. This map of control was sent out by a federal agency to Border Patrol in a daily intelligence briefing on May 9. CR has obtained a copy of this briefing from a Border Patrol agent who must remain anonymous because he is not authorized to speak to the press. Why the relevant government agencies refuse to recognize the border as an insurgency conflict rather than simply an immigration issue remains a mystery.

    Description

    A briefing on immigration and how laws don’t seem to matter for illegal aliens as they do for Americans. In fact, our government not only ignores those laws but regularly helps illegal aliens with taxpayer funds to skirt them. Compare that to Americans and driving laws and tax laws.
    The reality is that this is no longer an immigration issue at our border; this is an insurgency issue that
    that requires the military. I give you exclusive data and information on the border that will show that we are dealing with the equivalent of al Qaeda at our border in the form of the cartels. The same way the Muslim Brotherhood has successfully subverted some people living in our country, the cartel culture has subverted parts of the Rio Grande Valley.

    Reps. Chip Roy, R-Texas, and Mark Green, R-Tenn., asked the president to designate the cartels as terrorists earlier this year. This move would open up new resources to target the cartels and to treat all of our border policies in a much different light than simply a domestic immigration problem. Yet the State Department continues to balk.
    The cartels have long passed the stage of simply profiting from drugs. They are international organizations that are engaged in endless criminality, most prominently human smuggling, but they seek to control territory and terrorize populations as well. Mexican drug cartels seek to replace local governments by imposing their own law. The Mexican cartel culture is similar to the ideology of ISIS and al Qaeda in the sense that they seek “to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) or to effect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping,” which is the definition of international terrorism defined under 18 U.S.C. § 2331.
    The day we solve our sovereignty issue will be the day our government finally prioritizes the security of America the way it prioritizes the security of the Afghani government. That will not happen until we take our sovereignty as serious as we do the sovereignty of the Mexican government’s ever-diminishing control over a handful of cities.

    I think this is a good idea. It's unfortunate that the Trump administration doesn't share my feelings.

    The Mexican cartels are exploiting a widespread opioid epidemic that’s killing nearly 130 Americans each day
    and Ohio, like other states, is at the epicenter of their deadly supply of narcotics.
    The state is taking steps to fight back.


    The point was stressed during a hearing last week with the Ohio House Criminal Justice Committee, which is considering the passage of concurrent House Resolution Bill 10 to urge the federal government to designate several of the Mexican drug cartels Foreign Terrorist Organizations. Currently, the drug cartels are classified as transnational criminal organizations. It would still have to seek passage of the full Ohio House legislature.
    House Resolution 10:

    RESOLVED, That we, the members of the 133rd General Assembly of the State of Ohio, respectfully urge the federal government to designate the drug cartels operating from Mexico as foreign terrorist organizations, so that the government may use appropriate means to mitigate and eventually eliminate the operations of the cartels;
    In Ohio and across the country families and communities have been ripped apart, while the major Mexican drug cartels like Sinaloa and Jalisco Nueva Generacion have been amassing billions of dollars off of the death and addiction of Americans.“The Mexican drug cartels don’t fly planes into buildings, but they aggressively ship poison into our communities, ” Heidi Riggs explained to the Ohio House Criminal Justice committee last week. Riggs, a mother who lost her daughter Marin to Heroin addiction is now an advocate fighting the epidemic. Tragically, Marin died just two weeks after her twentieth birthday from a heroin overdose. Marin fought long and hard to beat her addiction, but the drug took ultimate control and claimed her life as collateral damage of a greater problem.Riggs testified alongside investigative reporter Sara A. Carter and former Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Derek Maltz, who has spent his career battling the cartels and terrorist organizations.Maltz passionately delivered his message to the committee.
    “Bottom line is the state of Ohio is inundated with crime, drugs, violence fueled by the Mexican drug cartels,” he said.
    “The cartels are taking advantage of these people that are addicted. If you want to declare a group a terrorist organization just look at the State Department’s website: they must be a foreign organization. Check. The organization must engage in terrorism. Check. The organization, or terrorist activity, must threaten the U.S. security or national security. Check. Long overdue designation in Washington but they’re asleep.”

    The trio’s paths crossed last year during the production of the documentary Not In Vein,which focuses both on addiction and narcotics trafficking across the border. They are hoping to push for real change. The film was produced by Carter’s nonprofit The Dark Wire Investigation Foundation and in conjunction with Full Story Foundation, based in Ohio.Their latest ask is for the state of Ohio to designate the Mexican cartels Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) in the hopes of setting precedent on the national level.“I call it a terrorist action.”

    Ohio is an important starting point. In 2017 alone, the midwestern state ranked second for the number of opioid related deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control. “This state has been known as ground zero for the heroin and opioid epidemic. The DEA identified Dayton and Columbus as major cartel distribution points,” Carter testified Thursday.
    Carter said the Mexican cartels view states like Ohio, Georgia, or Virginia “as a potential marketing place to gain more and more addicts, infiltrate the school systems, make their money and bring it back to Mexico, and continue to perpetuate this horrific epidemic,” she continued, “and I call it a terrorist action.”

    According to the DEA, it’s the perfect marketplace seeing an unprecedented increase in demand between 2013 and 2015. The Mexican cartels met that demand by ramping up their heroin production by 169 percent. In “Not in Vein”, a documentary produced by Sara A. Carter, Chris Farrell, Director of investigations and research at government watchdog group Judicial Watch, put it simply, the cartels operate exactly like Walmart. “Walmart never runs out of milk, the cartel never runs out of drugs,” said Farrell.

    The Search for the Next Dose

    In many cases, pharmaceutical companies have patients hooked. After all, Purdue Pharma was charged with “misbranding” the highly addictive narcotic drug OxyContin as a ‘miracle drug’ claiming ‘little risk of addiction or abuse.’ But, even in this case, once patients exhaust prescriptions, they do anything and everything for their next dose. It’s typically illicit street pills or heroin that’s the next readily available and cheapest option. And it’s the greatest source of euphoria, according to addicts who spoke with SaraACarter.com.Ashley Evans is a survivor of heroin addiction. It was a drug that took control of her life and she called it “the devil.” Evans’ story is featured in “Not in Vein”, which was released last year. Evans told Carter that her addiction led her to using heroin while pregnant with her daughter Olivia. Miraculously, Olivia was born a healthy baby and is now in her mother’s care following several months of separation while Ashley was in treatment.This satanic drug is being brought into our country by the Mexican drug cartels. They are growing it in large quantities in Mexican fields and trafficking it across our southern border. To meet the demand for more drugs that are stronger, the cartels are mixing drugs like heroin and methamphetamine with fentanyl, a highly potent synthetic opioid. The cartels are conducting these operations beyond the western hemisphere obtaining fentanyl from China.

    Call The Cartels By Their Name

    Last year, in an interview with Hill.TV, DEA acting director Uttam Dhillon called the Mexican cartels “the biggest criminal threat the United States faces today.” Now, the Mexican cartels are classified as “Foreign Transnational Criminal Organizations”, and as Chris Farrell stated in “Not in Vein”, the designation “just isn’t cutting it.” “You give the Mexican government a choice, they can cooperate and get on board and help us to fight them as what they are: terrorist organizations, or we can do it ourselves,” Farrell explained.The legal criteria is cut and dry. According to U.S. Department of State, the organization must be foreign, it must ‘engage in terrorist activity,’ and it must pose a threat to our national security. Derek Maltz said exactly this in his testimony Thursday. “It’s long overdue for this designation in Washington, but they’re asleep, they’re not getting it done, and people are dying,” said Maltz.It’s time to call the cartels by their true name terrorist organizations and allocate the necessary resources at the federal and state levels to obliterate their operations.
