CJNG displaces Sinaloa after the fall of "Chapo"; already operates in Europe, Asia and throughout America

The CJNG currently controls ten thousand kilometers of the Pacific coast, on a route that extends from the southern cone to the border of the United States and Canada

While the fragmentation of the Sinaloa cartel exploded after the fall of Joaquín Guzmán Loera and his children, "Los Chapitos", disputed control over the group of "Los Licenciados" - who testified against "El Chapo" in the federal court of Brooklyn -, the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) extended its geographical reach to Europe, Asia and all of America.

It currently controls 10,000 kilometers of the Pacific coast for the trafficking of cocaine and methamphetamine, on a route that extends from the southern cone to the border of the United States and Canada. Now, it is the most violent and the most powerful organization, according to US intelligence reports.


Prepared by the Congressional Reserve Service with databases of the DEA, the FBI, the Department of the Treasury and companies specializing in intelligence and espionage services such as Stratfor, the report Mexico: Organized Crime and Drug Trafficking Organizations, prepared on December 20, 2019, considers the CJNG the newest and extremely powerful organization dedicated to drug trafficking.

In addition, he points out that he has achieved that cartels that previously had great power for their penetration into the Mexican government, currently need them to operate, such as Los Beltrán Leyva.

The Congressional Reserve Service points out that, according to The National Drug Threat Assessment (NDTA) 2018, the Beltrán Leyva became a group of factions that work under the umbrella of that name and mainly operate marijuana trafficking , cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.

However, he mentions that to move drugs across the border these subgroups depend on alliances with elements of Los Zetas, the Juarez cartel and the CJNG, based in the second largest city in Mexico, Guadalajara, and a recognized presence in the minus 22 of 32 Mexican states.

The Beltrans maintain distribution links in the US cities of Phoenix, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta, while in Mexico they remain influential in Morelos, Guerrero, Nayarit and Sinaloa, where the CJNG is also.

According to intelligence services, the Jalisco cartel dominates key ports on the Pacific and Gulf coasts, which "have allowed it to consolidate important components of the global narcotics supply chain."

In particular, the CJNG controls the ports of Veracruz, Manzanillo and Lázaro Cárdenas, which has granted access to chemical precursors that flow to Mexico from China and Latin America. "As a result, it has been able to follow an aggressive growth strategy, signed by the US demand for Mexican methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl."

The Congressional Reserve Service states that the reputation of extreme violence of the organization led by Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, "El Mencho", also continues, and recalls that in August 2019, 19 bodies were found in Uruapan, in the southwestern state of Michoacán, including several that were dismembered and nine that were hung from an overpass.

The crime, he refers, is attributed to "El Mencho".
The structure of the Sinaloa Cartel is different. According to intelligence reports, the organization does not establish alliances with other cartels, but instead recruits local gangs from across the region that specialize in various crimes.

For the US, the CDS is now under pressure and its future remains unclear. He also says that some analysts warn that it is still powerful given its international dominance and its infiltration in the upper reaches of the Mexican government, but mentions that others maintain that it is in decline, citing its breakdown in factions and violence by intra-organizational tensions.

This break is due to the dispute of Dámaso López Núñez, "El Licenciado", and Dámaso López Serrano, "El Mini lic", against Iván Archivaldo and Jesús Alfredo Guzmán, "Los Chapitos". The first two became collaborating witnesses of the United States since in January 2017 the Mexican government extradited Guzmán Loera, who was tried in the federal court of the New York district in Brooklyn between November 2018 and February 2019.

His lawyers argued that he was not the head of Sinaloa company and instead a "lieutenant" following orders. However, he was sentenced in February by a federal jury and sentenced by a district judge in July to life imprisonment in prison, with the addition of 30 years, and he was ordered to pay 12.6 billion dollars.

The report says that Los Zetas, divided into two main factions -  Cart del Noreste and Vieja Escuela - have expanded to other criminal operations, such as widespread extortion and fuel theft, in which the Gulf cartel is also involved. However, it places La Vieja Escuela and the CJNG as the main oil looters for the Pemex pipelines in the center of the country.

He quotes that in the NDTA 2018, the DEA said that the Gulf cartel, which has been existed for several decades, today focuses on the cocaine and marijuana trade, but "also recently expanded to heroin and methamphetamine ... [and] smuggles most of their drugs to southern Texas through the border region between Rio Grande Valley and South Padre Island.

Meanwhile, the Familia Michoacana states that, although observers reported that it had been largely expelled from Michoacán by the Knights Templar, it is still active through a group that calls itself The Nueva Familia Michoacana, which is active in parts of Guerrero and Michoacán , specialized in the production of methamphetamine and contraband, along with other synthetic drugs, but "it has also been able to traffic marijuana and cocaine, as well as tax and regulate the production of heroin."

The Capitol research body also warns that cartels are more fragmented and more competitive than in the past.

In addition, he mentions that analysts are not sure if smaller organizations will be easier to dismantle.

It exemplifies that groups such as Los Viagras in Tierra Caliente and Los Cuinis have solid structures and have expanded.

Of the latter, he said that he was identified as an important organization in 2015. In addition, he states that according to an OFAC statement, Los Cuinis can become "one of the most powerful and violent drug cartels in Mexico."

  1. That's bs, if it were true, why are they fighting plazas, and extorting businesses in Southern Mexico, Oaxaca, Guerrero, and Michoacan to name a few. For control? Of what? They should be in Sonora, Chihuahua, Baja, fighting the plaza, that's the drug route. Why do they extort poor mexicans in the south, when they could show their supposed 'power', and fight Sinaloa in the north? Because they can't.

    3. 12:34 PM What type of Extortion? Ask anyone in Snitchaloa who owns beef cattle, dairy cattle or are affiliated with those types of businesses if they aren't getting extorted. The fix works like this if you want to start a beef cattle business you have to buy the cattle from the Snitchaloas, once the cattle goes to market you have to sell them to a snitchaloa slaughter house who sells the beef to a snitchaloa owned butcher who then sells the beef at the price the Snitchaloas want. You can place this businesses model on practically every type of business in Snitchaloa.

      El Mayo is able to sell hundreds of thousands of tons of beef or whatever Walmart buys from snitchaloa because he is doing the same thing in the export business. Buys the product at the price he wants and sells it to walmart at the price they want to buy it at. Walmart buys from him because he offers them the best deal you buy from walmart because they offer you the best deals.

      The snitchaloas have also done the same thing in the import businesses, construction, agriculture, pirated items and the drug production in Snitchaloa. The majority of stolen vehicles in the US end up in Snitchaloa sold as used cars. That is why the Mexican government put a stop to that and made it difficult for your average joe to nationalize an American vehicle so they can own and operate it in Mexico. The only ones making money on this are the Snitchaloas and Mexican polititians family and friends who sell these types of vehicles.

      This is called a monopoly something all cartels are trying to achieve that is why we have a criminal war inside Mexico. You don't see this in the USA because the real player and winner is the USA fed and state more tax money for their activities. They won't legalize drugs because it is far more profitable for them to be illegal.

      I will give the Snitchaloas and the US credit they sure are good at copying and refining things done in the past. El Mayo isn't a fool that is why Chapo is in prison and Mayo isn't. El Mayo is all about himself while Chapo was all about his family. Both got what they wanted one did it one way while the other did it another way. The Snitchaloas are here to stay for a long time the samething can't be said about Mencho and CJNG that is unless a luck comes around and helps them.

  3. A lot of conflicting reports on the strength of the Sinaloa Cartel. You have some who say that Chapo's extradition didn't affect them at all and they're as powerful as ever. Other sources point to the conclusion that it has become more fractured over the past few years and its grip isn't as stable as it once was.

    2. This reminds me of something Alfredo Jalife talks about. He uses the term “Palestinisacion” de Mexico. The comment section here seems like it could me a microcosm of what may be going on in Mexico. People choosing sides, one faction or the other. Disinformation helps to perpetuate that, in my opinion. Whenever one of these articles appears on this site, they seem to get the most reaction and not in a conciliatory manner but a very divisive one.

  8. I just don't get this narrative at all. Sinaloa suffered far larger fractures before Guzman's second and third arrests (e.g. BLO and CJNG) than they did after. Sure, López Núñez did mutiny, but his rebellion against Sinaloa was far smaller and more contained than the earlier and more significant fractures.

    1. Sinaloa has fractured. There are just many groups like them Damasos and Salazares and even GN that all work semi independent and fight amongst one another yet when confronted by an outside cartel like say CJNG they claim CDS has their back. Reason they claim CDS has their back is to provoke fear for their ememies and call for so called respect from the people in the territories since they claim CDS never hurts innocents although that is very questionable.

    3. @ 2:08 That's true but you have to remember each fragmentation made CDS a little weaker.

  9. Blown article, CJNG has a large presence in a lot of places, but it’s just like any other cartels in hub city’s. The question is do they control it? Besides having a strong hold in parts of Guadalajara and the ports, they are fighting for control in other southern states. Internationally they are behind and playing catch up and won’t do a lot of damage. Don’t get me wrong CNGJ are probably the kings of meth and extortions but that’s it. They don’t have no business in , DGO, Chihuahua, Sonora, Cabo’s, Zacatecas, Sinaloa. In Tijuana they have a presence just like a lot of other cartels but CDS controls it still. It’s a never ending fight.

  17. The USA is spending about $51 billion annually on drug war and another $80 billion annually for the prison system where almost 47% are incarcerated for drug offenses.

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