Published

on

On November 3, 2020, cartel gunmen stormed a hardware store located in the Mexican state of Guanajuato and attacked four workers with gunfire and grenades.

The store would later end up in flames in what appears to be another skirmish between rival drug carels, according to a report by the Daily Mail. According to the Celaya Public Security Ministry, five armed men associated with cartels arrived at the scene of the crime in a truck and a motorcycle. They then started opening fire and throwing grenades inside the store on the afternoon of November 3.

Before fleeing the scene, the assailants burned down the store. A photo that went viral on social media showed the charred bodies of at least three victims after the local fire department was able to put out the fire.

The city of Celaya and other cities in the state of Guanajuato have been flashpoints in a cartel war between the local Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, one Mexico’s most prominent cartels.

At the moment, an investigation is being conducted by the Guanajuato State Attorney General’s Office to find out if the attack is connected to the arrest of José Alfredo ‘El Yeyo’ Sánchez at a mall in the state of Veracruz on the same day  of the attack on Celaya.

Sánchez was an important leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel and was arrested by Mexican Marines without any form of violent resistance. and

There was an apparent falling out between Sánchez and Adán ‘El Azul’ Ochoa, who became leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel following the arrest of cartel leader Jose Antonio ‘El Marro’ Yépez in August. Sánchez reportedly switched sides and became a member of the competing Jalisco New Generation Cartel.

Mexico is an institutional mess and border security remains a powerful issue. With media outlets reportedly calling the election for Joe Biden, Republicans must do everything possible to make immigration a major issue leading into the 2022 election cycle. If Biden is installed as president, there will be little attention paid to immigration or border security matters.

Sinaloa Cartel Suspects Arrested at Border for Carrying $3.5 Million in Cash and Massive Amounts of Cocaine and Fentanyl

Drug Cartels Will Have a Field Day During a Biden Administration

Published

on

On November 24, 2020, the Justice Department published a press release on how three Mexican citizens suspected of trafficking enormous quantities of illegal drugs for the Sinaloa Cartel received charges in federal court. This case is likely the biggest seizure of ammunition, cash, and narcotics in the district.

Jesus Burgos Arias, Juan Alatorre Venegas, and Jose Yee Perez were arrested on November 20, 2020. This arrest was the product of a joint investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Homeland Security Investigations, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, San Diego Police Department, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California, that set its sights on individuals connected to the Sinaloa Cartel.

During these arrests, agents confiscated roughly $3.5 million in cash, 685 kilograms of cocaine, 24 kilograms of fentanyl, and about 20,000 rounds of .50 caliber ammunition and hundreds of body armor vests at a truck yard in Otay Mesa.

In a complaint filed in federal court, the defendants received a drug trafficking conspiracy charge. The defendants were transferred from the San Diego Central Jail to federal custody and made their first appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Barbara L. Major.

“This historic seizure and prosecution is a clear indication of the success of our joint investigative efforts,” declared U.S. Attorney Robert Brewer. “To eradicate this threat to San Diego and our partners in the Republic of Mexico, we will continue to aggressively attack the Sinaloa Cartel’s drug smuggling, money laundering, and arms smuggling operations – depriving them of their illegal merchandise, their profits, and a safe haven.” Brewer gave praise to prosecutor Matthew J. Sutton and the federal and local agents and officers for their diligence in this case.

“Thanks to the collaborative work with our state and federal law enforcement partners, we are able to announce this blow to the Mexican Cartels operating in San Diego,” remarked DEA Special Agent in Charge John W. Callery.  “We are further encouraged that we were able to separate them from their dangerous .50 caliber ammunition and over $3 million in drug proceeds that they have gained through selling death here in our community and throughout the US.”

“This seizure is significant not just because of its size, but because it demonstrates the direct correlation between narcotics, illicit money, and guns that drives violence in our communities and destroys lives,” stated Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) Special Agent in Charge Cardell T. Morant. “HSI will continue to work with our law enforcement partners and prosecutors to aggressively pursue the Sinaloa Cartel and other transnational criminal organizations.”

“The Sheriff’s Department is committed in working with our justice partners throughout the region to combat the dangerous drugs and violence associated with narcotic trafficking,” commented San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore. “Sheriff’s deputies see the destruction and damage that illegal drugs cause every day.  We are proud of what this case has accomplished, and the continued work being done to hold these criminals accountable.”

The Southern District of California led an investigation over the past five years that resulted in the aforementioned case being brought forward. The overall investigation has brought charges against over 125 people and has greatly affected the global operations of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The investigation started in late 2011 when authorities busted a small-scale drug distribution cell in National City and Chula Vista. After substantial investigation, law enforcement discovered that the Sinaloa Cartel was involved and the case morphed into a massive investigation that crossed state and national lines. The broader case led to dozens of arrests and seizures of 1,397 kilograms of methamphetamine, 2,214 kilograms of cocaine, 17.2 tons of marijuana, 95.84 kilograms of heroin, and $27,892,706 in drug-related funds.

With the Biden administration coming into power, similar cases will abound as it becomes clear that border security will become an afterthought during a Biden presidency.
