“No Crisis At the Border”- Mexican Cartels Using Grenade Launchers Close to Texas Border
Over the weekend, two convoys from opposing cartels rolled into
Miguel Aleman, Tamaulipas. Mexican military forces largely ignored the clashes, according to Breitbart. Locals stated that the fighting went on for hours, and left burned out hulks of armored SUVs littered in their wake.
The Gulf Cartel and the Cartel Del Noreste (a faction of the Los Zetas cartel) have been fighting for control of Tamaulipas for about 15 years. Because that Mexican state is a key smuggling area for drugs into the United States, they have killed many time and time again. They’ve had their hands on military weapons before, but reporting such things is hazardous to the health of any journalist in that region. Many have been murdered.
Both cartel factions used numerous grenades and incendiary devices in order to disable the other sides armored SUVs. The clashes left several burned-out vehicles throughout the city and the surrounding areas. Despite the raging violence, officials only found the body of one gunman left outside of a local funeral home in a pool of blood. The deceased gunman wore military-style clothing and carried several pieces of tactical gear but is not a Mexican military member.
The fighting in Miguel Aleman comes just days after cartel gunmen left an unidentified headless body and a burned-out SUV near that city. The fighting also follows several other fierce clashes in and around the region. In one of those clashes earlier this year, more than 30 cartel gunmen died with most of them incinerated in a two-day span. Last month, CDN gunmen left a chest with two human heads and a banner threatening the Gulf Cartel and Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG). The CDN gunmen leaked the identity of Bartolo “El Primito” Rodarte Castillo, the leader of a Gulf Cartel faction called “Los Metros.” This is the faction currently in control of Miguel Aleman.
But Democrats insist there is no emergency at the border. These cartels never encroach on US territory. All is calm. There is nothing to see. Except bodies, drugs, human traffickers, and the vicious battles of the drug cartels. Have a nice day, Democrats.
