For the Government of the United States, the Mexican cartels are actually the most sophisticated and dangerous organizations that finance their activities on other continents with their financial gains obtained in USA territory, the detentions of their leaders in Mexico are an advert that no criminal is immune from arrest and processing, said the Drug Enforcement Agency.
The alliances that the Mexican cartels have achieved with American gangs have generated narco trafficking profits, with which they finance their illegal activities in other continents, among them Europe, Asia and Africa they added.
In this respect, the agency affirms that the Mexican transnational organizations are actually the principal providers of drugs like marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine in the United States, its for this they have augmented their alliances with local American gangs to operate.
According to analysis carried out by the DEA, the Narco trafficking cartels of Mexico are the organizations with the highest systems of sophisticated operations, and their violence has penetrated the United States frontier that they share with Mexico.
The alliances they have established with local gangs, represent a clear and present danger to the citizens and communities of the United States, especially because networks of distribution in the barrios, cities and states.
The DEA has found that the alliances between some groups, "are the product of mutual necessity that Mexican organisations must have in relation to infrastructure to stock up and distribute their drugs to the cells of narco traffickers in the United States, of which they established networks.
A product of their expansion into the United States, they added, the Mexican Cartels as well as their local group have incremented their violence resulting in them attacking each others safe houses that are located on United States soil.
While the DEA fight the main supply corridors, the Mexican Cartels in alliance with other organizations penetrate US and Europe from other continents, so the arrests of their leaders must continue he said.
