El Menchito is Extradited to The U.S.

The Mexican government handed over Rubén Oseguera González to the United States, El Menchito, identified as number two of the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación, federal officials said. The authorities consulted indicated that the extradition was carried out during the day, leaving El Menchito available to US agents.

Last September, a Collegiate Court refused to grant an amparo to Rubén Oseguera, with whom he sought not to be handed over to be tried by the Federal Court of the District of Columbia, in Washington.

According to federal authorities, Menchito, Ruben Oseguera Gonzales, a U.S. citizen, son of El Mencho, was released from the Federal Criminal Court of Hermosillo, Sonora, and was transported by air to the U.S.

Early  September, the Second Collegiate Court in Criminal and Labor Matters of Oaxaca definitively denied the protection with which Oseguera González intended to prevent its delivery to the United States justice. 

Below is the background and indictment of El Menchito.  For more than five years, Menchito was imprisoned in the Federal Penalties of the Altiplano, Oaxaca and Hermosillo.  

The government of Mexico has not issued a violence alert for any outbreak that may occur in “protest” of the extradition.

There are 24 bodies that were in a state of decomposition in the clandestine grave in Coeneo, Michoacán, the prosecutor Adrian López Zolís reported this morning.

After the acts of investigation, the head of the State Attorney General's Office explained that, last Friday, in Pátzcuaro a criminal cell was dismantled to which weapons of exclusive use of the army were secured.

Cristian Rodriguez: Moments of terror were experienced in this court in Honduras. The security cameras show the armed criminal cell made up of about 20 hitmen who visit in uniforms almost identical to those used by the anti gang agents. They were pretending to escort a phony protected witness who was covered in black. They managed to enter the court without raising the suspicion from guards who were protecting the entrance.

Ramón Flores: The coordination for the rescue of that young man was so exact that we’ve only seen this in movies.

Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes: Carteles Unidos and Cartel de Sinaloa Executions and A Manta

Six people were killed in events related to organized crime in the last 15 hours in this city.

The first was around 9:00 am on Sunday where the body of a man between 20 and 25 years of age was found with traces of violence and the coup de grace on the side of State Highway 13 close to 750 meters of the entrance of El Hotelito community in the east side of this capital. This person was found with a manta signed by the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación.

The second….

Apparently this unleashed a response from antagonistic groups, such as Carteles Unidos and the Sinaloa Cartel. Sometime after 10:30 pm on Sunday a 21-year-old man, known as El Robertillo, committed to the sale of drugs was killed by at least 8 bullet impacts from an AR-15 rifle by two hooded subjects when they were at the corner of Calle Andalusia and Calle España, in the southern end of the city.

After hearing that lasted for more than two and a half hours, a Control judge ordered  the release of Oscar Andrés Flores "El Lunares", leader of La Unión Tepito.

The capital's mayor, Claudia Sheinbaum, considered the move “inconceivable”, since there has to be a commitment, both in the capital government and in the Judicial Power of Mexico City.

“It is inconceivable, that a judge has released a criminal with minor arguments. Security and justice is only possible with the commitment of the three powers, so it is necessary to review this and other cases by the Judicial Branch of the CDMX, ”the president wrote in her Twitter account.

Smugglers are using camouflage ladders to climb border wall, feds say

 Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat   TY BBB Follower   Source

EL PASO, Texas – Smugglers in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, have engineered camouflage hook-and-ladders made of rebar that blend in so well with the border wall that it can be hard to detect, according to U.S. Border Patrol. The ladders are the same rust brown color as the mesh panels or steel beams of the fence.

El Paso's urban stretch of border is littered with the rusted rebar ladders at the base on both sides — ladders lying in wait on the Mexican side, ladders pulled down by border agents or abandoned by smugglers on the U.S. side. One of the rebar ladders was poking out of a dumpster in a lot near the Chihuahuita neighborhood on Thursday.

"Somebody is making money off those ladders," said Agent Joe Romero, pointing to a mangled version tossed in the dirt on the U.S. side. "The agents pulled it off the wall and cut it up so it can't be used again."

'Narcos' migrate to WhatsApp to evade intelligence service

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat TY Neal  Milenio

To keep their communications secret and away from the access of government authorities, Mexican drug cartels have a secret weapon, 100 percent inviolable, which today has the security agencies of several countries in check.

It is an app available to everyone: “WhatsApp”.

Thanks to its high level of encryption, WhatsApp and other similar applications, have become the preferred tool for organized crime to coordinate sensitive communications, including murders and drug shipments, according to US Attorney General  William Barr.

 "We have seen how transnational drug cartels increasingly transfer their communications to these commercially available encrypted platforms designed to block legal access," he said last July.

Narcos: Mexico review: a show for people who want the drug war to last forever - The Verge

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat  The  Verge   TY GUS

Narcos started as a show about Pablo Escobar, a real-life gangster who outdid even the most outrageous fictional ones. The show built a compelling two-season crime thriller around his astonishing life and death. But while Escobar died, Narcos — a hit that premiered in 2015, when Netflix was rapidly building its streaming empire — needed to go on. A third season followed another Colombian cartel. Then a spinoff, Narcos: Mexico, tracked a parallel cartel in Central America. The first season detailed its rise; the second chronicles its fall. If there was any point to all this, it’s become hard to keep track of. The show is too busy following the cocaine.

Narcos: Mexico is the story of Mexico’s first drug kingpin, Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna). The 10 episodes that premiere this week detail the dramatic implosion of Gallardo’s empire, a collapse that makes for extremely bingeable television. Yet, despite the thrilling spectacle, exhaustion seeps in. Even though it aims at being something more, Narcos: Mexico doesn’t seem to have ambitions far beyond those of the criminals it follows, pushing more product.

               BCA forensic scientist Becky Willis measured out a small amount of heroin.

Minnesota law enforcement saw surges in meth, cocaine and heroin seizures last year, more evidence that drug cartels are operating a thriving network from Mexico to the Midwest.

The state’s multijurisdictional Violent Crime Enforcement Teams impounded 1,706 pounds of meth last year, a 49% increase from 2018 and a 625% rise over the past five years, according to data released by the Department of Public Safety this week.

The task forces, designed to target drug and gang crime, confiscated 55 pounds of heroin last year, more than double the amount in 2018, according to the data. They seized 106 pounds of cocaine, an 80% increase from the year prior.

Buggs conducts an interview with “Lalo”.  Lalo was once a federal highway police agent in Mexico City.  After he was laid off, he was “invited” to Juarez around the time of the death of Juárez Cartel capo, Amado Carrillo Fuentes, in 1997.  A time when Juárez was a war zone with the Arellanos fighting for the territory which  they assumed Juárez Cartel would be vulnerable and unstable after Amado’s death.

The entire interview transcript follows this extract 
Buggs: At one point in time you were a member of the Juarez Cartel? 
Lalo: Yes, I infiltrated the Juarez Cartel. 
Buggs: But you were also working with ICE right? 
Lalo: Initially I... 
Buggs: You worked for them.  
Lalo: You could say I Infiltrated the Cartel on ICE's request.

BB Page Deleted by Facebook

Just wanted provide feedback on the questions we have been getting about the Borderland Beat Facebook page, it has been deleted by Facebook. This page (that had the Borderland Beat title) was started a long time ago and had a huge following, I believe we had over 100,000 followers at the time it was removed by FB. We used this page to share posts from this blog. We also used to publish a lot of raw content that was sent to us directly from members on the page itself, using the messenger on the page. We would, many times, publish pictures and video of carnage of the result of cartel violence, FB would just cover it with a splash page. They did not like any actual videos of executions as they suspended my account on numerous occasions, so we would avoid posting any execution videos that were sent to us.

Recently someone reported the page and it was suspended, we were never notified what content was the problem. I immediately appealed. The staff on Facebook reviewed the page and they felt the whole page violated the community standards and chose to just delete the whole page permanently. I find this move might have an ulterior motive.

Twitter and Instagram are some alternate options (they allow almost any content), the only issue of concern is that both platforms restrict the amount of text that might be required in some of our entries.

So at this point the Facebook page is totally gone, until we decide what other options we have, if we are to use the Facebook platform to provide content information. A lot of valuable members contacts that would report on events in Mexico almost on a daily basis is lost. I was able to download all the data content before it was deleted, so I may upload it somewhere on HTML format to have access for reference basis. My ability to post any content on Facebook has been suspended for 30 days

Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused to any of our loyal members.

Part V:  La Reina Del Sur,  Who Will Fill the Shoes While Incarcerated in Costa Rica?

Cristel Yariella Gomez Espinoza, the 25-year old beauty dubbed the “Queen of the South” of Costa Rica, is now in Preventive Detention Prison in San Jose, along with her newborn baby girl, Valentina. Cristel is petite, just over 5 feet, and has taken advantage of the good plastic surgeons of Costa Rica to enhance her beauty – and help her escape detection. She was wanted by authorities for drug dealing and operating an illegal drug cartel when she was apprehended in August of this year, while clothes-shopping in the Zona Sur.

Cristel is part of a new wave of narcas, or queenpins, or narco queens, or drug divas, who have completely revolutionized the face of narco-trafficking throughout Central and South America. Their ascent to positions of power is due in part to the United States’ war on drugs, which has killed or imprisoned men leaving their daughters, wives, lovers and sisters to take their places.

In a new book by Arturo Santamaria Gomez, “Female Bosses of Narco-Traffic”, Gomez describes “widows, daughters, lovers and girlfriends of men in the drug trade have entered the business in increasingly powerful positions. It is arguably easier now for women to punch through the ‘glass ceiling’ when it comes to the drug world than in legitimate business.”

The sicario nonchalantly shoots several more times. And the mans body violently jerks away. This was his fate for having resisted. Perhaps in the victims mind leaving the world this way was better than the inevitable torture that surely awaited him.

La Reina Del Sur: Costa Rica’s Drug Diva Sorority

It is well known how dangerous La Reina del Sur de Costa Rica is – but it’s also dangerous to be this 25 year old. This fact was brought painfully into focus on December 28, 2018, when a 20- year old Nicaraguan waitress named Tatty Matamoros was found dead, thrown out of a moving car. Her only crime was that she bore a slight resemblance to Costa Rica’s Reina del Sur, and had similar blue roses tattooed on her inner arms. Someone wanted Gomez Espinoza dead.

Tatiana Matamoros, known fondly as Tatty to her family and friends, came to Costa Rica in 2017 to find a better job and better quality of life for herself. Nicaraguan life was full of gang violence and danger for a pretty young girl like Tatty. She quickly found work as a waitress in San Jose. New friends were attracted to her kind eyes and sweet smile, and she managed to adjust easily to her new life in the big city. Tatty’s critical mistake was to get blue roses tattooed on her arms – tattoos reminiscent of those of the notorious Cristel Gomez Espinoza.
