Brindisi Introduces Legislation to Crack Down on Illegal Drug Cartels


From the office of Rep. Anthony Brindisi:

Congressman Anthony Brindisi and Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick introduced the bipartisan Identifying Drug Cartels as Terrorists Act. This bipartisan legislation would list seven Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs), as defined by section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

The Gulf Cartel, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, the Beltran Leyva Cartel, the Juarez Cartel, the Los Zetas Cartel, the Sinaloa Cartel, and the Tijuana Cartel have been described by the Drug Enforcement Administration as the most prominent in Mexico.

This designation will allow the United States to direct the resources necessary to dismantle them, ending their reigns of terror, and help to end the flow of drugs coming across our southern border, which fuels the addiction epidemic in our communities.


“Illegal drugs are terrorizing our communities and it is time we called these drug cartels what they are: terrorists,” Brindisi said. “So many families have been torn apart by drugs and these cartels are committing heinous criminal acts. Identifying these traffickers as terrorists will give our law enforcement more tools to crack down on bad actors at our southern border and around the world. Securing our border and stemming the flow of illegal drugs is paramount to our national security and the health of our nation. I am excited to work with my friend Congressman Fitzpatrick to do just that.”

“Mexican drug cartels control the territory along our Southwest Border, spreading drugs and crime, across Mexico and into the United States. These criminal organizations are a menace to society, and we need to do everything in our power to continue to fight them. That is why I am introducing this legislation, to officially designating these criminals as foreign terrorist organizations,” said Fitzpatrick. “These criminals bring illegal narcotics, commit atrocious acts of violence, and smuggle humans across our border. They harm lives every day, and it is time we call them what they are: terrorists. I thank my friend Congressman Brindisi for joining me in introducing this hard-hitting and bipartisan legislation, and I will continue to work to see this bill become law.”

The seven cartels listed above meet the criteria for being engaged in terrorist activity by committing hijacking, sabotage, detention, murder, and assaulting innocent people.

Once the Department of State labels a group as an FTO, known members are banned from entering the United States, and it also becomes illegal for Americans to intentionally support these groups.

Financial institutions are also prohibited from conducting any business with the organizations, members or associates. Under current laws, these cartels are listed as drug trafficking organizations (DTOs), despite the fact that they are involved in a wide range of criminal operations, exceeding the illegal drug trade.

These crimes include fraud, weapons trafficking, bribery, money laundering, extortion, counterfeiting, and smuggling.

While several cartels have been labeled as Transnational Criminal Organizations (TCOs), the TCO and DTO designations do not give law enforcement the appropriate tools to challenge the cartels, as opposed to official FTOs such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Hezbollah, and Al Qaeda.

    1. Biggest and most dangerous drug tragicking terrorists are on the border and they are already killing american citizens on mexico's side. If both mx & usa authorities don't stop them, those terrorists are going to do the same thing on US soil.

    2. Bro they are submerged in the heroin trade! Have you seen how they line up in Chicago to buy this stuff? It looks like black friday sale out there! im all up for Guerrero bieng cleaned up but truth is Guerrero is the 2 lowest in literacy and education. Who ever comes next will not have a hard time taking over. As far back as I remember Gerrero has always been involved in Narco wars, but now they are backed up by these big organized powerful cartels. But hey the good ole U S of A are here to help now, what can go wrong?

    6. Multi middle eastern terror cells get smuggled into US by the cartels too frequently .. sure they get paid to but they aid and abet terrorists regularly and generally hate El Norte on ideological grounds anyway.

      Delete
    7. Exactly correct. This is to give legal cover to the US to use their drones on Mexican citizens. I have a hard time seeing Mexicans let that happen.

    8. @1/15/20 6:23 pm: I gotta disagree on that comment. Only in movies or infomercials do cartels do that. Why would they help terror orgs. blow up their cash cow? Also do you know how many relatives, friends, and employees they have in U.S.?

      Idiotic DEA, FBI, CIA, let those mexican criminals organizations get huge right in their own back yard. Now we are at the point of where those mexican terrorists post a serious national security threat to the USA, lots of american lives are at risk.

  8. These lames on here are funny and think they know everything. The cartels are working with Mexican-American gangs other Latinos for the coming race war or whatever you want to call it. Non Hispanic Whites and blacks and any others with no native blood 🩸 have no reason to be in the Americas and as long as they can poison them with drugs the killings will continue.

    2. Don’t forget the US military there’s a lot of Latinos/Hispanics that get discriminated against even if they’re US born. A lot of blacks on YouTube keep making stuff up about they are the first and real Natives. In LA stupid Chicanos making peace treaties with black gangs talking about everything is cool, yeah right!

    3. It's 2020 get out of here with that bullshit. A race war where they are killing off their own people by the thousands!
      As a Mexican, there is it more racism in Mexico than in the US.

    4. @1:23, your thoughts are classic, a lesson in the history of fascism, so I'm glad that your diatribe was included in the BB comments so that we can all see anew the errant basal thought process that exist in some consciousness, just like Hitler's regime. And I think that you need a good daddy spanking.

      are a matter of fact, with martyrs like Tim McVeigh and Charles Manson among their heros with no mexican supremacist group to be found among or against them...even most white people do not like white supremacists or want to reinforce them, racism is their tool and belongs to them.

  9. It’s a strategy to have US bases in Mexico to prevent perhaps Russia and China from getting too close like Russia is in South America. I don’t necessarily believe they will be doing anything with cartels maybe so but there’s another benefit.

    3. Im tired of hearing this bs that the demand for drugs is the sole reason for drug addiction and the horrors in Latin America specifically Mexico. Dumping a ton of any drug on ANY population will CREATE addiction. Nobody was asking for fentanyl until it was shoved in the faces of drug users. 10% of ANY mammals have the propensity for addiction. Mice...monkeys... human beings are no different in this regard, thus the solution to the problem is slightly more complex than blaming the addict/user. Look a little deeper if you’re more than a simpleton with an IQ above 80. I’ll assume you’re capable of that

    4. The Sackler family saw the money making opportunity from creating the opioid epidemic. Lobbyied and got laws passed, and then passed on the torch to mexican dtos when they could not keep the US legally flooded and supolied with their product, but they knew where their orphaned customers were and who would keep them supplied.
      Of course, there would lots of money prosecuting and persecuting and incarcerating the mexican drug trafficking terroristas! Harlem Shake here, please...

      Delete
  11. Defining cartels as terrorist organizations does not mean the US will just cross the border and attack Mexico. It allows the US to take more action along the border...which is needed. A wall ain’t gonna work. So...for all the cartel cheer leaders...this doesn’t mean the US is invading your home land. And even if the US did invade...Mexicans wouldn’t do anything anyhow. Except maybe try to wash the humvee windows or sell corn to the soldiers!

    1. Typical Blind American militard response. People like you always boast the same way but then when you actually go to war you come back crying about your dead occupier friends or because you get maimed our burned. That’s if you’re even lucky enough to not come back in a flag draped coffin. Funny how they expect to come back expecting everyone to praise them and thank them for their service yet none of them even know who they’re even serving. I’ll tell you one thing, they sure aren’t serving America

  17. It's interesting after decades of drug consumption in the US that such categorization is applied. Despite Big Pharma companies contributing to this epidemic without conviction nor oversight because of its political powers. Rather, the infinite amount of money that pharmaceutical companies & their lobbyists pump into our politicians pockets.

  20. If they are going to say cárteles a terrorist then they should have no problem with charging all the Americans who get caught buying and doing drugs with supporting terrorist that’s a real serious crime that should be punished with federal prison cause all the Millions and millions of Americans money is used to fund terrorist activities such as buying weapons to kill thousands of people right it’s like when they blame a county for secretly supporting a terrorist organization with weapons and money to fight theirs some kind of sanctions

  21. It wont wont happen so easy, alot of laws will have to be rewritten especially immigration. If they only label them as terrorists and treat them like terrorist, way too many people can come to the USA as refugees from terrorists.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can see this getting nasty if it becomes a reality, it will be too confusing. Thats why I think it would probably not make it. Unlike traditional terrorists groups, Cartels are driven by money, they are deeply rooted in the economy, their money gets passed through legit bussiness, many banks are known to have accounts belonging to cartel leaders, so are these banks going to be fined? Will money laundering now mean funding a terrorist organization? Whatabout someone getting caught buying their fix, dispensaries buying from illegal growers, will they be charged for funding terrorists groups? Or anyone caught on a raid because they would sell 20s, will alot of people labeled terrorists and be in court fighting that label aswell? Most drugs in the US are said to be from mexico and most people caught selling in the us are assumed to be working with cartels right away. Operations like fast and furious will make the government look even worse for arming terrorists. The Government also says they dont negotiate with terrorists, so does that mean no more sweet deals to narco snitches and no more protective witness to cartel bosses that snitch????

    3. @4:28 Juarez Cartel is a small cartel, they don't control anything outside of Chihuahua so they defend their plazas maybe try to take over towns and small places like that but Los Zetas, Sinaloa, Cjng, Golfos all these cartels have expanded outside their state to start wars and grow if anything Juarez is the least Ruthless cartel compare to other cartels

    4. 10:16 Juarez cartel is as of today the third largest cartel in Mexico after Jalisco and Sinaloa FYI.
      "Small" is a subjective term.
      They can be small in territory but big in drug sales.
      They do not kill babies however like Sinaloa huntthuggers like to say.

  25. Doesn't an organization have to have an ideology to be a terrorist group? The cartels have no ideology beyond making money selling drugs(and occasionally other stuff). We designate groups as terrorists because they are willing to wage war against the USA or its allies for their beliefs. Cartels don't wage war against Mexico because of some greater cause, they do so to make money for themselves.

Also don't forget mexican cartels are responsible for north american gangs getting out of control in many us cities, because those narco terrorists provide them the dope to sell on the streets, creating more violence like in Chicago! Mexican criminals hate the USA dumbo!
