Criminal organizations smuggle drugs, people and are involved in the laundering of money,  trafficking of weapons and stolen vehicles. 

The Department of Public Safety Texas (DPS)identifies the Gulf Cartel (CDG), Sinaloa Federation, Juarez Cartel, La Familia Michoacana, the Beltran Leyva cartel,  "Los Zetas" and the Knights Templar (Caballeros Templarios operating in its territory. 

The report states that Mexican mafias throughout the United States dominate the business of narcotics and human trafficking.

The analysis was presented by the DPS the Texan Congress after lawmakers requested the government provide a breakdown statistics of incidents on the border with Mexico and the criminal activity that has been recorded since the entry into force Operation Strong Safety (OSS), on 23 July.

The DPS prepared with declassified information board of Texas border security and report relevant incidents in the border, which are published on the website of the corporation for any citizen to consult them.

“The goal of this data-driven, multi-agency operation in high-threat areas for a sustained period of time is to deny Mexican cartels and their associates the ability to move drugs and people into Texas between the ports of entry, as well as reduce the power of these organizations, whose success depends on their ability to operate on both sides of the border,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “

At the request of the Texas Legislature, DPS is providing unclassified, detailed information about the trends that have been developing along the border for some time, as well as the current activity occurring in the OSS area of operation.”

A website is available to the public that highlights "significant, cartel incidents".

Narco Danger 
Texas on June 23 deployed to  its south  border with Mexico, thousand troops.of the Texas  state National Guard.

The action,  aims to help the DPS to combat criminal activity in the region, by air, water and land.

Rick Perry, governor of Texas, said on July 21 that the initiative "is the result of the failure of the federal government to secure the border."

He stressed: "There can be no homeland security without border security and the Texans have paid a heavy price for the failure of the federal government. The action command will stop the crisis, multiplying our efforts to combat criminal cartel activity, trafficking in persons and criminals who threaten the safety of Texas and America."

Perry recalled that from 2008 to now, 203,000 undocumented criminal have been sent to Texas prisons for having committed more than 640,000 offenses in the state, including 3,000 killings and a 8000 sexual offenses.

Perry's office reported that strengthening border yielded immediate results. In the first three weeks of operation, the arrests of illegal immigrants resulted in  36 percent fewer seizures weekly.

The Safety Board, which compiled information throughl September 3, 2014, recognizes that the insecurity of the border with Mexico is the main factor in public vulnerability Texas.

Not specified was an analyzation  of  how each cartel operates.
The number of undocumented immigrants has declined significantly rescued in the state, with deployment on the border of the National Guard. 

With the purpose of evading review road points, coyotes take their victims by off roads and ranches, and often abandon them. .

As an example, the board says Brooks County, near the border with Reynosa, where from 2011 to date have been found remains of 332 humans.

The cartels are big business in human smuggling, as going rates ranging from $2000 up to $20,000.  

The chart below is of 2013, indicating areas of operation of each cartel, Templarios were not considered a factor in 2013. (Click image to enlarge)

    2. I would hope the legalization would bring regulation and taxation. I rather get taxed by Uncle Sam than make these savages wealthy and powerful. Look at Colorado its making millions in taxes. Texas could make even more if you planted hemp(marijuana) for industrial textiles.

    3. Not millions bro they're making billions of dollars in tax money. Im in Florida and we finally have our medical marijuana vote coming up. It will b legal everywhere in the u.s.a. in future but until then ppl will continue to die

    3. Doesn't matter how many guns you have since that has not stopped cartels from operating in the U.S.. All the violence in Miami in the 80s, the gang wars and so on. Where were you and your buddies? Did you go out and confrot them? Don't be naive.

  7. Juarez cartel's area has increased while Sinaloa has decreased. Zetaz area is about the same but Golfos influence is smaller. LFM has little or no influence. They may push some weight but very little. BLO has influence b/c of their meth production and their connection with the Zetaz. Zetaz allow them to use the ports they control. CT may have alittle influence but very little. If CJNG is actually in a truce with BLO, Zetaz and Juarez they will over take CT's influence. 3:07 Zetaz are every where in Texas. They may not have any heavy hitters in the panhandle or West Texas they have associates in place. Juarez, Aztecas and La Linea are heavy in West Texas and New Mexico.

    4. Read my post again 7:19. I said the Golfos area of influence was smaller than the map suggests. Everyone that knows anything about the valley knows that the Golfis still plazas there.

  8. Beltran leyvas are everywhere, they are huge in Europe. Since they are Sinaloense they get confused witg sinaloa cartel but less heat more movement.H is a true buisness man. He is one of the youngest and most experienced cartel leader around.

  9. According to the map Caballeros Templarios are in more counties than any other cartel. I don't see anyway possible Caballeros Templarios have more pull in Texas than Los Zetas or the CDG. Hell the CDG has been using Texas as an entry point since prohabition.

  11. Not one sheriff in the reo grande valley has retired with honor. They have either been arrested or resigned to retain retirement benefits. Every one of them have been in bed with the cartels.

  12. On the medical marijuana issue, legalizing it won't stop the cartels. In my opinion, the legal marijuana is a front for organized crime to launder their drugs.

    Think about it. United States Govt has been trafficking drugs for decades. Iran-Contra, Vietnam, Afghanistan, etc. Think about it is all.

    Just because it's legal isn't the end of the argument. There's still profit involved. As long as there's profit, there is room for corruption and capitalistic assassination.

    People will still fight for the money. You have to legalize it completely. Everyone should be able to grow their own. That will end the profit capacity for organized crime (US Govt is organized crime too).

    You'd rather pay uncle sam then criminals?

    Uncle Sam is the reason these criminals are the way they are. US thuggery STOLE native Mx sovereign lands and the US called it capitalism. This left millions robbed of their homelands that their previous generations fought for, decades earlier.

    The people in MX and US govts are the only criminals. The cartel members are a product of the environment. That environment was dictated by the rich in US and Mexico.

    4. 1:51 do I have to educate you on how many wars the US have won? Answer this question for me mr. Know it all. Why did ISIS start their bullshit when 99% of the US military had left Iraq? I do know we won at least two wars and they are The Mexican American War and The Texas Revolution. I doubt any Americans ran for their life in these wars. I think it was the other way around.

  14. When i was a kid i used to live in one of the border cities. Certain parts of the towns were known for being "safe havens" for kingpins. A lot of these capos had "ranchos" in the outskirts of the city.

    My uncle was a gardener/handyman. So he would work with these guys often. My dad and mom would work after I got out of school so i would help my uncle.

    The ranchos always had several trucks parked. Once i asked them if they were car sales them and they laughed. If they wernt silverados or ford F150 they were SUVs. The weird part was that they were always a shade of black.

    Once i asked my uncle what there jobs were and he just told me they were business men from mexico.

    The houses that were on the ranches were always lavish. Their attire was over stylish and would pop. Their children just as stylish.

    It seemed that their sons were always with men that didnt seem as flashy. One would think of them as ghetto. They always had religious pieces hanging from their baggy clothing.

    Now that i think of it they were freaking sicarios or bodyguards for their sons that always travaled to mexico to take care of their fathers "store".

    One day there was a big shoot out in one of the border towns in mexico. It was all over the news. I asked the families that my uncle worked for about it. The fathers wouldn't tell me much about it. Neither their sons but the "friends" of the sons from 2 of the family's were eager to tell me about it.

    This happened separately. One of the guys told me that him and his friend were driving down one of the highways that leads out of Nuevo Laredo and goes towards monte rey. When all of a sudden they came face to face with a group of men aboard trucks coming from another road that crosses that same road they were on.

    Then a friend from one of the family's told me that they stopped while the other group kept going but that they lowered their windows, then while they were getting out of their trucks to shot at them that the guys in the trucks that kept going started firing at them. He described a golden AK47 with the longest magazine he has ever seen.

    Then one of the sons from the other family told me about it, he was telling me that him and his friends were driving to Nuevo Laredo when they were attacked by a group of guys but that they fired back and got away with 2 killed from a truck that was with them.

    Then when I thought abou it and put 2 and 2 together it turned out that they were recounting the gunfight that they had together! One of the guys showed me the bullet wholes on his Tahoe while one of the sons from another family showed me the freaking AK47!!

    I knew they wernt bullshitting me when I saw it on the news and it was spot on . It turned out one of the family were zetas and the other were gulf cartel. The news also said that the battle was between 8-13 trucks!

    Tango Blast moves meth for La Familia Michoacan/CT. That is why there is such a large presence across the state. There is no hierarchy to the gang (TB), just local affiliations which network with other regional cells/pods. That is why they are spreading like cockroaches. There is no honor or organized discipline to their members. I state this because I’ve studied the gang first hand through conversations with relatives who are in this gang. It is unfortunate that my own blood would affiliate with this type of cancer. All they see is making a quick buck with no long term ambition of growth or success for our next generation of blood and people. My grandmother is rolling in her grave.

They are the largest Security Threat Group in Texas Department of Criminal Justice Institutional Division.

  17. yup templarios have a huge presence in austin.. probably more so than any other group.. i mean just look at all the stores/restaurants/etc named "michoacano" tierra caliente" etc.. i live here and i can tell where someone is from by just listening to their accents, studying their behaviors, paying attention to what they wear and most wholesalers of meth and weed are temlparios or from michoacan/Guerrero/guanajuato and are affiliated with templarios.. while in laredo (and u could include their other border plazas like piedras negras/eagle pass and acuna/delRio) the zetas(and in league with the Zs is the beltran-leyva clan, cartel del norte, and various southern groups and central americans groups) have those cities on lock along with the help of Syndicato Tejano, Hermandad de Pistoleros Latinos and la eMe.. while san anto is the same as laredo they also have gulf cartel ops and maybe a few cells of lfm.. and Zs traffic way more migrants then CDG. they even cross migrants in frontera chica, falcon damn, and even reynosa!l.

  18. A few days ago I heard some cholo looking thug in dallas He was all scribbled on with tattoos. With a buzzcut you know the type short fat lazy looking. Had a hundred dollar tattoo on his arm. And said his "hookup" was a guy who worked for the golfos. Then I look him up on your blog and It shows a guy by that name he gave. maybe he was just braging to impres the girls there. But I doubt they knew who he was. The guy also said he sold and bought guns. O lord please not these scum with guns I though.Then his friend says they live behind an elementary and the hair on my skin stood on end and I left their little group. But later I thought what if it's my daughters school? I'm keeping an eye out for this clown. Who do I report him to?

  20. Provoking a war when you have everything lined up to win it, leads to thinking you have found the WAY, maybe chemical ali, i mean bagdad bob wasn't so wrong when he said the US were right where the iraquis wanted the US to be, or the chinese when they handed south vietnam back to the "french" to drag the US to a mouse trap, or, or, or...
    Land grabs have not been working so good for a while now, are they?
    --well, maybe if you are a minor illegal immigrant doing the devil's work for somebody else the land grabs still work, IN THE US...

  21. Of course, I couldn't find any of this information when I was deciding whether to buy down here 6 years ago. Now it's all over the place, and I'm stuck with this crap right next door. No wonder everyone wants to live north of the I-20 corridor, and none of these sheriffs will do their jobs. Bunch of sell out pussies. That's fine. This is what the 2nd amendment is for, and the castle law. They need to keep their garbage outside my property lines.
