Drug Cartels Assassinate Mexican Police Commander Just South of Texas

Drug Cartels Gain More Power in Mexico by the Day

Last weekend, a group of drug cartel members killed a border state police commander during an ambush. According to Breitbart News, the slain commander received a number of threats by drug cartels prior to the fatal attack.

The murder occurred on October 31, 2020 in the Mexican state Tamaulipas. Commander Tomas Charles Ortiz and his brother Alejandro drove to a local pharmacy close to the police commander’s neighborhood. At that moment, a number of gunmen approached the two men and began firing shots at them and briskly fled the scene. Onlookers immediately called the police to report the killing. State authorities arrived at the scene and sealed off the area while they carried out the initial investigation.

Tomas Charles Ortiz was the Tamaulipas State Police Delegate in Reynosa and presided over numerous operations by state police officers. So far, there has been no motive discovered for the murder.

According to law enforcement correspondence with Breitbart Texas, there is speculation that the gunmen are part of the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas. State authorities recently seized a number of weapons and armored vehicles from cartel assailants in La Ribereña, an area that is across the border from Starr County. This part of Mexico is known for its Gulf Cartel activity.

Mexico has been the site of some of the most bizarre forms of public disorder in recent memory. The Mexican government has tons of trouble keeping cartels in check and often is outgunned by them. One of the most notable incidents that BLP previously reported was when security forces were over-powered by gunmen of the Sinaloa cartel during an attempt to arrest Ovidio Guzman, the son of notorious drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, in the city of Culiacán.

Certain estimates point to drug cartels controlling 20 percent of territory in the country, illustrating the Mexican government’s inability to maintain a monopoly of violence within its jurisdiction. Donald Trump raised the issue of immigration and border control, when no other politician had the guts to so. Win or lose, Americans should follow Trump’s lead and become concerned with what’s going on in Mexico. The very least we could is to secure our border and make sure that Mexico’s instability does not spread over to our side of the border.

Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing

Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty

According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.

This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.

Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.

Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.

Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September. 

Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.

Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.

Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.

Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of  the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
