Mexico Under Pressure

Yaqui for Borderland Beat from: Vanguardia y APnews
                                                             Mexico under pressure:
The DEA was in the Country in September.
❙ On September 11, a delegation of the DEA made a secret visit to Sinaloa.
❙ The United States wanted to know if the Sinaloa Cartel was still strong after the condemnation of “El Chapo”
❙ The US government allegedly pressured Mexico to carry out the operation against Ovidio Guzmán López, son of “El Chapo”.
❙ On October 17, the operation was carried out in which Ovid Guzmán was arrested, but they had to release him.

Rich Glenn, deputy secretary of state for international drug trafficking issues, said during a hearing in the House of Representatives that progress will only be achieved once Mexico develops and shares a comprehensive strategy to confront international organized crime.

Under secretary of State, Kirsten Madison, traveled to Mexico two weeks ago to discuss the need for the country to develop and share a strategy with clear objectives, Glenn said.

The official also spoke about what happened last week in the city of Culiacán, in northern Mexico, where attacks by armed men forced the Mexican government to order the National Guard and the army to release the newly captured Ovidio Guzmán López , son the jailed drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán.

"What happened last week is very worrying," Glenn said in the toughest comments to date by the United States on the incident.

The Secret Visit of the DEA:
The journalist Óscar Balderas, in a collaboration for the First Broadcast of MVS News with Luis Cárdenas, revealed how he started the operation in Culiacán to capture Ovidio Guzmán López that triggered a series of violent events.

On October 17, an operation was implemented to arrest the son of Joaquín ''El Chapo'' Guzmán, in which car burnings, vehicle theft and shootings were recorded in different parts of the city of Sinaloa in response to the criminal organization.

"This began on September 11 of this year, in a secret visit made by a high-level delegation of the DEA to verify the state of the drug in Mexico," said the journalist.

The communicator said that the Administration for Drug Control (DEA) wanted to know if the Sinaloa Cartel had lost power yet because of the imprisonment of Joaquín Guzmán.

He said that "this caused a failed operation precipitated against Ovid Guzman."

According to the communicator, the United States sought to put pressure on the Mexican government to act immediately against the criminal organization.

“They found an immense narco laboratory, in which 3 tons of methamphetamines were produced in one week; crazy. Such was the astonishment of what the DEA saw, that the issue reached the White House and there was pressure from the United States to the Government of Mexico,” said the journalist.

The operation implemented in Culiacán concluded with the release of Ovidio Guzmán, son of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, ''El Chapo''.

The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, defended his decision, arguing that saving lives was more important than any arrest. The president said Saturday that he received a phone call from Trump, in which he expressed his "solidarity" for what happened in Culiacan.

Rich Glenn said cooperation has helped Mexican law enforcement build capacity to confront organized crime. “We know they are capable. We know because we helped build that capacity,” he said.

The State Department has asked Congress to appropriate $484 million for counter-narcotics aid to countries in the Western Hemisphere during fiscal year 2020. The United States has spent about $2 billion over the last decade in anti-drugs efforts in Mexico.

  3. This money being allocated for the drug war by US government should go to other matters of importance. Government waste is clearly evident from the billions given with no significant results.
    Quite sure this money goes to employ many agencies. Regardles of its transparency.
    2 billion estimated over its lifespan to fund a useless anti-drug program compared to the 10s of billions in profits made by DTO'S yearly.
    If this war is to ever win; suggest matching the dollar amount to those DTO'S earnings.

  4. The two sons are not as powerful as el mencho. Why can't the DEA pressure the mexican't government to apprehend EL mencho?

  5. FOH.. Both Governments sell drugs. All this tough talk is for show. They are the real Kingpins of the Jale. Don’t let those scapegoats fool you. The real money is made at the top and Politicians are positioned at the top.

  6. So was Richard Glenn able to figure out if the Sinaloa Cartel was still operating in Sinaloa, or is he still working on it?

  7. Mi pregunta es simple ¿En qué punto la infiltración en el gobierno y los militares llega al punto donde la narco mocracia comienza a usarse? Tengo la sensación de que ese punto está creciendo cerca. Mi queja no es con las drogas, es con la extorsión, el secuestro de niños, la protección y la intimidación del gobierno local que me asusta. Estos delincuentes nos dicen cuándo se arreglan los bachis cuando los basuristas recolectan desechos y cuán estricta es la mordida para fallas cinturones y la reparación de los rojos de agua domésticos.

    1. Mi miedo es por mi familia. Nuestro peso está en peligro de perder su valor como lo fue durante la crisis de Luis Portillo. Estoy tratando de cambiar tantos pesos como sea posible por dolares. Pero hay tantos dolares falsificados que representa un riesgo.

  8. Like I said the U.S pulls the strings the D.E.A are the hitman squad when the D.E.A can't do it or bite more then what they can chew they send in the C.I.A to finish it or start war between other organization or within the organization. The U.S Government is the most Corrupt and lying pieces of shit that stand by the code ( Plausible Deniability ) they say that about "Andres Lopez Obrador " but the U.S Government knows very well how that GAME works let the Sinaloa Cartel be strong every government first started as a criminal organization they afraid that MEXICO WILL BE A OR ALREADY IS A NARCO GOVERNMENT .

  9. The only reason things are the way they are is because there is war for control. The United states should focus on capturing the big players in the states if they really want to see change. Without them Mexico narcos would be nothing.

  10. The pressure needs to continue to make significant strides in Mexico. I fear that if the DEA continues they will repeat history and an agent will be killed like Kiki. They needs to stay strong down there.

  11. People in Mexico will believe this? They should find someone else to build their official stories!

  12. I see highly trained, highly organized, and well armed military shadow groups rising after the Culiacan fiasco to combat defectors and cartel paramilitaries. This is only the beginning of the next stage of the war.

  13. The way to destroy illegal drug cartels is by grinding them between the millstones of legalization, regulation, competition and taxation.

  15. 30 years of WoD and international DTOs are stronger than ever AND we have more, stronger and cheaper drugs than ever on our streets, parks, schools and homes than EVER!

    Question: is this a failed policy or is it working just as designed???

    1. U.S. government will never admit defeat is the thing. Too much money is also involved to keep people incarcerated and even for law enforcement training and shit.
      We have yet to see ONE political canditate for any office be it atate or federal that even cares about the drug outcome or the war on drugs enough to attack it directly like here now.

    2. It's an overwhelming success. The powers that be are profiting more and more as this fake war rages on.

  16. There is so much to ponder with all the great information and responses. I know that our best success in the failing drug war was when both our countries trained together, ate and drank together, worked together and celebrated together. It’s was simple: Create a strong relationship at all levels of government and nurture those relationships so you know who you are talking to when you need help. Understand the challenges of our agencies, institutions and economies. It can work but we have to have great leadership and support at each level. Operation United Eagles was a huge success for both countries in 2003 where we combined the resources of both nations and dismantled the Tijuana Cartel.

    AMLO is corrupt and thus compromised. Any successes have to be done strategically but Mexico is a sovereign nation and must be apprised when the US is operating in Mexico. Mexico is hitting rock-bottom in violence, impunity and corruption. I feel the vigilante groups will continue to rise until there is revolution. But the cartels are well armed as they send their gofers into the US and obtain the best weapons and pallets of ammo to go with them. That needs to stop by increased enforcement by Mexico at the border. I have seen many instances where guns and ammo go south without any inspection. That is an obvious area where we can both make a difference. It would be great to see these pencil-necked sicarios trying to terrorize without their guns and gear.

  18. Mexico suffers from a deadly poison that is sucking the life out of this country and it's people. The poison is the US! Us greed drives the horrible events that take place in Mexico. Of course arrogant Americans will place blame on powerful cartels which were also the creation of a bad strategy implemented by the US.
    Mexico needs to legalize canabbis and capitalize on a billion dollar market. No more (help) from the shit stained country ran by a Orange haired imbisle.
    MEXICO 1st

    1. I can only hope that the Mexican President will stop allowing those greedy corrupt U S snakes in government into your country to rob you and put your citizens in their prisons yet their wealthy criminals are set free. Please wake up

  19. To the conspiracy theorists, this should demonstrate how incompetent the US govt is. They really do believe arresting capos makes an impact. It’s not about money, they genuinely don’t get it.
