A narco-terrorist and high-ranking leader in the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas was shot in a series of shootouts with state police in the border of city of Nuevo Laredo.
The drug lord and his close associates were nearly captured on New Year’s Eve. This incident led to subsequent shootouts the following day as cartel assailants targeted officers.
Mexico’s recently created National Guard stayed on the sidelines during these attacks.
The New Year’s Day shootouts had several injuries and casualties. Additionally, one innocent bystander was shot near a hospital. As a response to the ongoing violence, the Webb County Sheriff in Texas issued an alert advising residents to not go into Mexico. Similarly, the U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo asked American citizens to take the violence in account when traveling.
Breitbart Texas reported that drug lord in question was Hector Raul “El Tory” Luna Luna. Three cartel gunmen were killed while one police officer sustained injuries, according to reports from U.S. law enforcement sources working in Nuevo Leon.
Despite being wounded during the exchange, El Tory was able to escape with the aid from “Hell’s Troops or Tropas Del Infierno,” a group in armored vehicles to CDN-Los Zetas and an ally Juan Gerardo “El Huevo” Trevino Chavez. El Tory is the same cartel actor behind the 2008 grenade and shooting attack on the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey.
El Tory was captured in 2010, but a Mexican judged released him in 2018 under suspicious circumstances.
This shootout represents another example of how Mexico has increasingly become a failed state.
Given these disturbing developments, the U.S. should consider following through with the construction of a border wall and a radical overhaul of its immigration system that goes along with its national security needs and economic interests.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?
Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.
“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,” the politician stated
Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.
“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.
The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.
It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.
Salvini has every reason to be concerned.
If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
