Cartel involvement suspected in disturbing discovery on US border.

Armed Suspected Mexican Cartel Members Arrested on Texas Side of Border

Alleged armed members of a Mexican drug cartel were found and arrested on the Texas side of the Southern Border this week. Five people believed to belong to the Cartel Del Noreste were arrested Thursday in Fronton, Texas, by the Texas Department of Public Safety, National Guard and Border Patrol, according to Fox News.

Disturbingly, the group included some juveniles. Two men were armed with rifles, authorities said, and several were wearing tactical gear.

Cartels are already reaching far beyond Texas, according to KABB-TV.

  • Sheriff Kieran Donahue of Canyon County, Idaho, said, “We have a lot of cartel activity in Mexican cartel activity in the state of Idaho, especially … Boise.”
  • Donahue said the Sinaloa Cartel and Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion are both strong in Idaho.
  • Sheriff Sam Page of Rockingham County, North Carolina, said he deals with stash houses and cartel-linked crime.
  • California has multiple locations where cartel-funded farms illegally grow marijuana on public lands, according to the Courier-Journal.

“There are entire areas — in the Mendocino National Forest, Six Rivers, Angeles — that are simply no-go areas because of the high level of cartel activity,” Rich McIntyre, director of the Cannabis Removal on Public Lands  Project, said.

“You’re hiking in the woods, and all of a sudden, you’re looking down the business end of an AK-47.”

The Sinaloa Cartel has tentacles reach globally, they are in every state in the United States. They’re in 47 countries around the world we have identified, so their tentacles are strong, they are violent, and they use every means possible to ensure that they are able to make as much money as they can,” said DEA special agent in charge Richard Sanchez.

“Sheriffs across the country are experiencing issues that started at the border, and then continue to move through the country and come into our communities,” said Sheriff Page.

If we fail to secure our borders, every sheriff in America will become a border sheriff.”
