Top U.S. Cities that are crowded with Mexican Cartels

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat TY Gus   Sources Yahoo and Inside Monkey



There are at least 13 U.S. cities that are used as distribution hubs by the Mexican drug cartels. Click to skip ahead and see the list of top 5 cities that are crowded by Mexican drug cartels.

According to the DEA, Mexican drug cartels continue to expand their presence and forge partnerships with other transnational gangs, U.S. street gangs, prison gangs, and Chinese money laundering organizations. 

The DEA "assesses that the following six Mexican TCOs as having the greatest drug trafficking impact on the United States: Sinaloa Cartel, CJNG, Beltran Leyva Organization, Juarez Cartel, Gulf Cartel, and Los Zetas Cartel".

Sinaloa Cartel is one of the oldest and most successful drug cartels in Mexico. It is also the most significant drug trafficking organization in the United States.

Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) is the youngest of the top 6 Mexican drug cartels. Based in the city of Guadalajara, CJNG is the fastest growing drug cartel and the second biggest player in the United States. This is probably not the last time you hear about CJNG as it is more willing to engage in violent confrontations with rival cartels and security forces.

Beltran-Leyva Organization (BLO) is the third most significant Mexican drug cartel in the United States, followed by Juarez Cartel, Gulf Cartel, and Los Zetas Cartel. "Consistent with previous years, the Sinaloa Cartel maintains the widest national influence, with its most dominant positions along the West Coast, in the Midwest, and in the Northeast. CJNG continues to be the Mexican TCO with second-most widespread national influence. BLO activities remain more dispersed throughout the United States, with heavier concentrations in areas with large heroin markets," said the DEA.


These cartels primarily employ Mexican nationals to oversee their distribution operations in the United States. Their second choice for leadership positions are U.S. citizens of Mexican origin. They clearly don't care about violating the employment discrimination laws.

According to the DEA, these six Mexican drug cartels generate tens of billions of dollars every year and employ a multitude of financial transactions and arrangements to launder and smuggle their earnings into Mexico. "There has also been evidence of the utilization of cryptocurrencies by Mexican TCOs as a means by which to transfer their wealth internationally" said the DEA. Mexican drug cartels also convert wealthy Chinese nationals' Renminbi (RMB) to US dollars at a lower rate than the prevailing market rate. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to transfer their wealth outside of China, so they are willing to pay Mexican drug cartels a premium for the cartels' US dollar cash holdings in exchange for RMB payments in China. We have no idea what the Mexican drug cartels do with all that RMB and how they smuggle all that cash out of China.

Our ranking methodology is quite simple. We ranked each city by the number of different Mexican cartels that use as a distribution hub. In case of a tie, we rank the city with more powerful cartels higher. We bet you won't be able to guess the #1 U.S. city that is crowded by these violent Mexican drug cartels. Here are our rankings using DEA's data:

13. New Orleans
Los Zetas Cartel is the only Mexican cartel that uses New Orleans as a major hub. Los Zetas Cartel is the least influential of the 6 Mexican cartels, but this doesn't mean that its members aren't dangerous people.

12. Dallas
Los Zetas Cartel is also the only Mexican cartel that uses Dallas as a major hub.

11. Laredo
Los Zetas Cartel is also the only Mexican cartel that uses Laredo as a major hub.

10. Detroit
Gulf Cartel is the only Mexican cartel that uses Detroit as a major hub. Gulf Cartel is the 5th most influential Mexican drug cartel in the U.S..

9. Houston
Gulf Cartel is also the only Mexican cartel that uses Houston as a major hub.

8. Oklahoma City
Juarez Cartel is the only Mexican cartel that uses Oklahoma City as a major hub. It is the 4th most powerful Mexican drug cartel operating in the United States.

7. El Paso
Juarez Cartel is also the only Mexican cartel that uses El Paso as a major hub.

6. New York City
Jalisco New Generation Cartel is the only Mexican cartel that uses New York City as a major hub. Mexican cartels aren't prevalent in New York City probably because smaller Colombian drug operations still supply large quantities of cocaine and heroin into New York City.


5. Denver
Sinaloa Cartel and Juarez Cartel both use Denver as a major distribution hub. Juarez Cartel is the fourth powerful Mexican drug Cartel operating in the U.S..

4. Phoenix
Sinaloa Cartel and Beltran-Leyva Organization both use Phoenix as a major distribution hub. Beltran-Leyva Organization is the third most powerful Mexican drug cartel in the U.S..

3. Atlanta
Sinaloa Cartel and Jalisco New Generation Cartel both use Atlanta as a major distribution hub. Jalisco New Generation Cartel is the second most powerful Mexican cartel in the United States.

2. Los Angeles
We bet you were thinking that Los Angeles is the #1 city that is crowded by Mexican drug cartels. There are only 3 major Mexican drug cartels based in Los Angeles: Sinaloa Cartel, Cartel Jalisco New Generation, and Beltran-Leyva Organization.

1. Chicago
Are you surprised to see Chicago at the top of this list?  (nope)

Sinaloa Cartel, Cartel Jalisco New Generation, Beltran-Leyva Organization, and Juarez Cartel operate out of Chicago even though it is such a long distance from Mexico. Chicago isn’t the murder capital of the United States, but its reputation in this regard is pretty bad. There were 750 murders in Chicago in 2016 and the rivalries among Mexican drug cartels and the gangs that help them distribute their illegal drugs definitely contributed to the Chicago’s murder tally. According to our latest calculations Chicago also has an average of 2.1 murders per day so far in 2020 and currently sits at the top of our list of 15 U.S. cities with the highest number of murders.

  4. No wonder I see many drug addicted people around. Cartels are competing for customers, the unemployed that need the drug resort to robberies.

  5. How about US cities with the least amount of drugs and distribition? I can't think of any. Would be nice to know that there could exist just one somewhere. Oh well, i'll keep dreaming. Love you BB.

  8. Who knew BLO was moving that much weight. They're smart to lay low.

  9. I certainly don't dispute these assessments but where are the facts. I am assuming this data is based on arrests or takedowns of different crews operating in these cities. By it would be nice to see the supporting facts laid out. Thanks for listening.

  10. There a businesses in San Diego that are CAF operated/owned, from stores to apartment complex. Laying low but still generating money.

  11. San diego?
    Witchita?
    Oakland?
    St. Louis?
    In the United States one or two cartels dont own the cities like in Mexico. Numerous small cartels or gangs will work in the same city. they keep low profile and hard to figure out. That is why you dont see cartel caravans in the USA roll into town and take over.

  12. I beg to differ zetas aint deep in Dallas no more.. a while back there was alot of FM presence in Dallas...

  13. I would think that San Diego is up there on the list.

  14. Sinaloa Cartel has been supplying New York with Heroin for a long time now, and Colombians aren't big in USA anymore. This info is a little goofy.

    1. Yeah, I found that to be a little strange. I don't know about other cartels but I know a few sinaloenses that use the dominicans in New York to move drugs to the rest of the east coast.

  16. The majority of the murder cases in Chicago are committed by blacks against blacks on the west and southsides,not the cartels, and Im not defending them either,fuck them too.

  17. Im gonna have to say its 1.CJNG 2.BLO 3.CDS that's real street kniwledge

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't understand why the BLO maintains such strength - all its founders are out of the game and therefore once-powerful connections to corrupt Mexican officials have weakened. Does BLO have a future? Shouldn't it have a new name/brand? Why doesn't it "merge" with CJNG? Will La Barbie escape and ask for his old job back? Is Sicario 006 a friend, foe, or frenemy of the BLO?

    Inquiring BB minds want to know

    4. Who knows, the only Beltran Leyva who I haven't heard from for a long time is Carlos Beltran Leyva who was arrested not long after death of his older brother Arturo. Since then I haven't heard anything from him not even his whereabouts.

      Delete
    5. The guy whos runs the show for BLO is chapo isdro. If I am not mistaken he has history with the original bosses and with some of the sinoloa cartel bosses. He's a very low profile person nit much info is out there on him.

      Delete
    6. I've heard rumors Carlos is out. There's 2 other brothers who are the financial arm. Humberto and Mario Alberto who are very low profile. Isidro runs Mochomos line and Carlos (bro in law) aka el musico runs Arturos. You got el Titos run by Neto Roca. Don Viry, Chuy Gonzales, Mario Beltran their nephew. Beltranes were the connect, people from the sierra dont forget their humbleness. Hay Beltranes para rato.

    7. Fausto is no joke he has family in the states cousins in gangs won’t tell you which ones but I’m sure he’s gonna be around for a good while

    8. Well idk but I have family members in Hermosillo all BLO related they just try to keep the peace rn & move weight

      Delete
    9. A lot of drug traffickers in Sinaloa continue to do business with remnants of the Beltranes (family, friends, extended family all in the business). The war may have been between BLO and "CDS" but those smaller organizations in Sinaloa that made there own moves did not choose sides. They may have stopped doing business with the waring parties to stay out of harms way, but continued to make their own moves. BLO, CHAPOS, MAYOS, QUINTEROS are not the only ones in Sinaloa importing and distributing drugs from Columbia. There's a whole lot of other players.. For some it's just business and nothing personal.

  19. Here's the real rankings homitos. 1 right off the bat es la cuidad de New Orleans, 2 it's New York porque who brings the pork, 3 es Detroit surrounded by the lakes with modes to any destination you pick, 4 Los Angeles geographically closer to that commie maggot China, y last because the list is really large es Phoenix no explanation here, I'll throw in the 6th and call it Chicago just because it's the cold that's the cause of all those murders. Call 1800-dre-dre-dre-ed for the rest of the list. The fee is carna guisada hand made tortillas, and refried beans.

    4. La FAMILIA is deep. In California, especially. In L.A. Oregon and Washington TOO.. La FAMILIA gets labelled CDS TOO often.. DON'T know why, I think because CDS is KNOWN and la FAMILIA not too many know about IT since they are more LOW key..just SAYING..
      I Remember like in 2012 or so WHERE la FAMILIA was getting hit HARD and THEY caught bloods, crips and other MEXICAN gangs connected TO la FAMILIA in Calif. the media SAID it was CDS 😆 just an EXAMPLE

      NP has cells in Tlaquepaque, Tlajomulco, and maybe Tonala. They're not international or have the technical know how to manufacture drugs. They're just a pandilla doing street crimes and extorting the Tapatios. Stop trolling with your bullsh!t.

  24. The title makes it sound as though just because cartels are present in tbese cities that violence because of them are at all time high and shit.
    Sure the cartels have a huge precense in these and many more cities but their main function is as suppliers not conquerers of territories in this country.
    If violence is present in these cities because of drugs it is because of local gangs or dealers fighting for that particular drug market not cartel hitmen.
