El Mencho's: Twenty year history in Tijuana

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat Thank You Neal translated and republished from ZETA


Rosalinda González Valencia, wife of the leader of the CJNG, has acquired properties in Tijuana since 1998. Her daughter, Jessica Johanna, also has a property in her name since 2009. That is why Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes sought an injunction in 2013, noting domicile in this border city. The properties of both women are insured by the FGR since 2017, and are located in Playas de Tijuana. The daughter of "Mencho" was granted in Guadalajara an amparo that frees her from an arrest warrant.

The presence of the Jalisco Cartel New Generation  (CJNG) is not new in Baja California. It has been developed over the last two decades. First with the presence of members of the so-called Millenium Cartel or Los Valencia, who used methamphetamine; and second, with the roots and investments of family members who, since 2012, have been designated as the leader of the criminal organization: Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes "El Mencho".

These circumstances encouraged the growth of the CJNG on the border in the most recent years, initially weaving alliances [CAF/AFO]and then controlling the main territories of Tijuana in a fight against the Sinaloa Cartel and a part of the Arellano Felix Cartel, to the extent that it has already been attributed at least the construction of a narco tunnel and several narco laboratories that supply drugs to California.
