Over the past 10 years, the drug landscape in the United States has shifted, with the tripartite opioid threat (controlled prescription drugs, fentanyl, and heroin) having risen to epidemic levels.

 

Drug poisoning deaths are currently at their highest ever recorded level and, every year since 2009, drug poisoning deaths have outnumbered deaths by firearms, motor vehicle crashes, suicide, and homicide  

 

Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs) supply illicit substances to distributors and users in the United States.  TCOs continue to form relationships with gangs, who in turn commit violent crimes and serve as retail-level drug distributors for TCOs, presenting a serious risk to public health and safety. The number of deaths attributed to controlled prescription drugs (CPDs) continues to outpace those for cocaine and heroin combined.  

 

Methamphetamine distribution and abuse significantly contribute to violent crime rates in the United States.   

 

Mexican TCOs remain the greatest criminal drug threat to the United States; no other group is currently positioned to challenge them. These TCOs maintain territorial influence over large regions in Mexico used for the cultivation, production, importation, and transportation of illicit drugs. By controlling lucrative smuggling corridors across the U.S. Southwest Border (SWB), Mexican TCOs are able to introduce multi-ton quantities of illicit drugs into the United States on a yearly basis.  Once these drugs are smuggled across the Mexican border, they are delivered to consumer markets in the United States using transportation routes and distribution cells that Mexican TCOs oversee both directly and indirectly.

Mexico:

 

In recent years the conflict has spread into grounds that exceed criminal activity including beheadings, kidnappings, gun battles near preschools, and political assassinations. The terror tactics have spread to include the murder and mutilation of American tourists, ICE agents and Border Patrol Officers, as well as Consulate employees

 

Organized crime groups in Mexico are engaged in much more than just drug trafficking. They're involved in kidnapping for ransom, extortion, human smuggling, and the sale of pirated goods

 

Connection are emerging between the Cartels and radical Islamic groups like Hezbollah and Hamas. These Islamic radical organizations have had a long history in the tri-border region of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay, it is a strong possibility they have finally moved north, as there have been mixed reports of Cartel members sporting Farsi tattoos and other indications that Hezbollah is in Mexico training drug traffickers in tactics crossing the border and how to properly use explosives and small arms.

 

USA:

 

 According to the 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment, there were an estimated 1.4 million active gang members, comprising more than 33,000 gangs in the United States. Street gangs most commonly engage in street-level drug trafficking, large-scale drug distribution, assault, threats and intimidation, and robbery. Prison gangs’ greatest threat lies in their nexus to street gangs and their ability to corrupt prison officials to facilitate the smuggling of drugs, cell phones, and weapons into prison. Prison gang members also maintain relationships with street gang members, and engage in assault, racketeering, extortion, murder, robbery, witness intimidation, and prostitution.

Second Mexican Journalist Murdered in One Week, Juarez Cartel Implicated  

 

Unknown gunmen shot Miroslava Breach, a career journalist. Breach was leaving her home Thursday morning in the city of Chihuahua when she was fatally shot.

 

At the crime scene, the gunmen left behind a poster board that read “por lenguona. Sigue tu Gobernador. El 80”. The message in the sign claims that the reporter was murdered for saying too much and that the state governor was next.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Visits U.S. Southern Border:  

 

But it is also here, along this border, that transnational gangs like MS-13 and international cartels flood our country with drugs and leave death and violence in their wake. And it is here that criminal aliens and the coyotes and the document-forgers seek to overthrow our system of lawful immigration.   

 

  • The transportation or harboring of aliens. As you know too well, this is a booming business down here. No more. We are going to shut down and jail those who have been profiting off this lawlessness — people smuggling gang members across the border, helping convicted criminals re-enter this country and preying on those who don’t know how dangerous the journey can be.
  • Further, where an alien has unlawfully entered the country, which is a misdemeanor, that alien will now be charged with a felony if they unlawfully enter or attempt enter a second time and certain aggravating circumstances are present.
  • Also, aliens that illegally re-enter the country after prior removal will be referred for felony prosecution — and a priority will be given to such offenses, especially where indicators of gang affiliation, a risk to public safety or criminal history are present.
