Mexico’s drug cartels are quickly turning their nation into a Hellscape of drugs, violence, and intimidation, and their continued abuses in Texas are a major cause of concern for Americans.
Mexican authorities have for years been under the thumb of the ultra powerful drug cartels that not-so-secretly run the nation. The immense wealth and power of these illicit organizations rival that of notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar and the GDP of many small nations. They rule the Mexican countryside by sheer fear alone, leaving in their wake literal piles of dead bodies of indiscriminate origin. Whether you’re a low level drug pusher slinging heroin for a rival faction, or a high ranking member of the Mexican police force; if you cross the cartels, you will not survive to tell the tale.
With cartel activity stretching well into Texas on more than a few occasions, it comes as little surprise that the latest gruesome and gory discovery of cartel activity includes more than a slight connection to the United States’ most trafficked border state.
“A faction of Los Zetas drug cartel used the bodies of their victims to deliver a message to authorities and their rivals in a suburb of this metropolitan area. Cartel members wrapped the bodies in black trash bags and left them in the bed of a pickup with Texas license places.
“The case began when Mexican authorities responded to a highway interception in the suburb of Escobedo in regards to an abandoned SUV, information provided to Breitbart Texas by Nuevo Leon authorities revealed. When authorities arrived they discovered four bodies wrapped in plastic bags and a poster board with a cartel message signed by the Los Zetas faction known as Cartel Del Noreste (CDN).
“As Breitbart Texas reported, rival factions of Los Zetas cartel have been fighting over lucrative drug distribution and trafficking areas. The fighting has led to a spike in violence where kidnappings, shootouts, and gory executions have become commonplace in the disputed areas. The fighting between the CDN and their rival the Los Zetas Vieja Escuela (Old School Zetas) has taken place in multiple cities in Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Veracruz and Nuevo Leon.”
These cartels have been nigh untouchable in recent years, as their violent escapades have long influenced prominent Mexican authorities into complacence. Where the Italian mafia in the United States was famous for their suave and dashing outward persona, keeping their atrocious violence well hidden, the Mexican mafia has taken another route entirely. Their public displays of violence are meant as a warning to all who dare to deny them the stranglehold they seek on the North American drug market. Public executions and mass graves are the tools they employ to pry open new doors of their business ventures, simultaneously taking what they wish at will, and reminding the rest of the continent that they are truly in charge.
The cartels’ grip on Texas drug trafficking can only be loosened by strict and swift border control measures and vigilance by the brave men and women of border enforcement. If the United States’ politicians can’t agree on that, then the democrats will certainly doom us to further violence in the name of Mexican drugs.
