Mexican drug cartels recruit thousands of students in Texas to traffic drugs and arms

Translated for Borderland Beat from a Sinembargo article by Otis B Fly-Wheel


The Mexican drug cartels have managed to recruit thousands of youngsters, in primary, secondary and preparatory schools in Texas, to form gangs under their control, in order to strengthen the flow of narcotic drugs to all of the United States.

This is clear from a National Gang Report from 2014, released by the Department of Public Safety for the State. In Texas there are about 100,000 Gang members and in El Paso approximately 5,600, distributed among 307 criminal organisations, according to information.

In accordance with the document "Texas Gang Threat Assessment", the Cartels of Sinaloa, Juarez, del Golfo, and Los Zetas, recruit students using the internet and prisoners to become involved in illicit activities.

The gang members, who are supporting any of the Cartels, receive orders to locate children, who accept money, fame, women and drugs in exchange for activities related to drug trafficking, human trafficking or sexual trafficking.



According to information in the report, the ease of recruitment is great, because when one of these youngsters are detained, they can easily be replaced, and will continue to bolster gang numbers inside prison, once convicted.

In the document, they identify the Barrio Azteca gang, La Hermandad de Pistoleros Latinos, and the Latin Kings, that serve the Juarez Cartel, headed by Vincente Carillo Fuentes until his detention on 9th October 2014.



In the case of the Sinaloa Cartel, the report identifies Tango Blast, Latin Kings, the Mexican Mafia and Los Surenos 13. The last in the list are considered the second most dangerous organisation in El Paso. The number one spot being attributed to Barrio Azteca.

Once students are recruited, they are put to work carrying out the following activities, sale of drugs, sale of weapons, collection of money, transit of drugs, murder, extortion, kidnapping or theft of vehicles, later to be sent to Juarez and used in violent crimes.

A unique series of events positioned the Sureno 13 gang as one of the most viable criminal gangs in El Paso, Texas. A review of events leading up to this, identifies three reasons how a gang based in California, is now one of the most influential in El Paso, and the implications for Texas in the future, said the text.

Adding that this movement had been a process over years, and that already members of said organisation has had time to relocate to other locations. As well as the gangs mentioned, others exist in different states of the country, and also have relations with Mexican Cartels.

Among them are Barrio Locos 13, Vista Home Boys, United Blood Nation, Brown Pride, Border Brothers, East Side Bloods, East Side Locos, Gangster Crips, and others.



One of the most important detentions of gang members in El Paso, happened last year, where authorities of the DEA, FBI and other diverse agencies, achieved the capture of 35, the majority of which were members of Barrio Azteca, who had formed a Bi-National network of heroin traffickers.

The members of this gang, known only as "Aztecas" in Juarez, were accused of racketeering under the RICO act.

Diverse Crimes

The report states that the gangs operate under the arm of the Mexican Cartels, they have been instructed to expand their illegal activities to include sexual trafficking and illegal alien smuggling.

The gangs most involved in these types of crimes are, Tango Blast, the Mexican Mafia, the Bloods, the Crips, and Barrio Azteca.

Some of these groups of organised criminals in Texas, regularly support the operations of the Cartels in human contraband, facilitating the transport of groups of illegal aliens, to cross the frontier between Juarez and El Paso.

One of the cases revealed the participation of members of the organised crime group of Charles Marquez alias "El Puerkote" the leader of a sexual trafficking network in El Paso.

Marquez was arrested in 2012 and declared himself innocent, but was found culpable of seven charges that included sexual trafficking of minors, conspiracy to force or seduce undocumented immigrants to engage in sexual activities, as well as importation of illegal immigrants.

The prosecution said that Marquez recruited the women, through classified ads in Juarez Newspapers, who were then forced into prostitution with customers in hotels in the city and state of New Mexico.

Also it was said of Marquez that he the women including minors that he recruited, were kidnapped  with ransom demands of £200 per person.

  3. I beg to differ mi amigo. Americans are armed to the teeth. We can defend ourselves unlike the typical hard working, non criminal families in Mexico. We can carry concealed hand guns. Try and kidnap me, I'll shoot you in the dick with my 40 caliber ;) Plus gang members are a just a bunch of hot headed pendejos looking for trouble. Look for trouble and you'll find it, anywhere, not just Mexico. Just let them keep doing the rest of the community a public service by them killing each other. Sooner or later all the pendejadas will slow down. Nothing lasts forever =)

      No, you cant defend yourself. All those gun owning neanderthals havent done a single thing to mitigate or stop crime. Stop dreaming.

    4. 3:19pm is correct in his assessment and I bet he can handle himself. Yes carrying concealed handguns don't eliminate crime completely but at least the likelihood he will be victim is slim to none. Criminals are smart and they will choose their victims by how they carry themselves. They will choose the path of least resistance every time. Don't hate on us Americans who are confident in their abilities to protect themselves.

    5. @7:42 So you're telling me I cant defend myself? Brown belt in kenpo, concealed carry permit, yet I cant defend myself? You can stop dreaming and wake up. Not everyone is a push over.

      @8:51 Whos acting tough? All I said is a lot of American can and will protect themselves especially those with concealed carries. Bet I can reach my gun faster than you can reach your toes. Dont act all tough around here.

      @ 5:14 I do believe what you say about how criminals choose their victims by how they carry themselves. I heard a saying once, "Play the victim, and you'll be the victim"

  9. Did you actually read the article? It quite clearly states that they recruit people from primary, secondary , and preparatory schools, so that would mean kids from age 8 to 16 roughly

    1. I'm with you 100%. We have guns and refuse to be victimized. All those who say otherwise are either trolls, hating because they have a past that keeps them from legally buying a gun and/or are wanna be thugs that pray on the weak for income and self validation.

    1. Yep i'm definitely not Chivis, though we share common ground on many things. At this point in time, for some reason, apart from Tamaulipas, there is very little else going on, seems like relative calm at the moment.

      When its like this, I have to scratch around for interesting high quality articles that BB readers will like. While this may be a questionable article, it achieved the most important thing, to promote discussion on the subject. Everyone has an opinion, and I probably learn more from the comments than I do from translating the articles. BB is all about promoting discussion, and not about sensationalism.

      It is really quite flattering that you think im Chivis, since without a doubt she is the most qualified person I have ever conversed with when it comes to the Mexican Narco Insurgency. She is respected world wide for her Journalism, and rightly so.

  15. "Among them are Barrio Locos 13, Vista Home Boys, United Blood Nation, Brown Pride, Border Brothers, East Side Bloods, East Side Locos, Gangster Crips, and others" who researched this info? I can tell you that these aren't even gangs that exist in El Paso. Tango blast #2 behind barrio azteca? Tango blast is no where to be seen in ep. This is all made up bad journalism. I speak from experience born in Juarez raised in El Paso and no I'm not in the game, have an honest job but I grew up in the northeast and many of my friends became aztecas. Why? There was no recreational programs, the educational system failed as they have uncovered multiple violations of the law by our school district. I was lucky I found an outlet, it was called picking up a basketball.

  16. We should deport all gang members found in US who are los illegals via dubai, saudi arabia, qatar, iraq, libya via airdrop. Each airdrop includes weapons in a box for once they hit the ground. Parachute them from the back of C130s by the thousands.

    it would help the us and mexico immensely and give the ISIS and AQ folks and their financial backers in qatar, saudi and dubai something else to deal with for the next 50 years.
