DEA Officials Directed To Avoid Saying ‘Mexican Cartel’ to Media

"Socalj" for Borderland Beat

The leaked email stated “Also, we need to now avoid saying ‘Mexican cartel’ or discussing the Mexican government or LE cooperation with Mexico. Please continue using ‘drug cartel,’ TCO, DTO, etc.”

Officials at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) have been directed by their headquarters to stop using the term “Mexican cartel” when speaking with the media, according to an email exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation from a government official.

A portion of the email sent mid-July stated: “Also, we need to now avoid saying ‘Mexican cartel’ or discussing the Mexican government or LE cooperation with Mexico. Please continue using ‘drug cartel,’ TCO, DTO, etc.”

The DEA is a federal law enforcement agency under the Department of Justice (DOJ) tasked with enforcing the country’s drug laws. Anne Milgram, who was sworn in June 28 by Attorney General Merrick Garland, heads the agency. The DEA and DOJ did not respond to the DCNF’s requests for comment.

“Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo interviewed former acting administrator of the DEA Timothy Shea on May 9 about the cartels trafficking drugs across the U.S.-Mexico border. Bartiromo stated that Shea was supposed to be joined by a DEA official, but that the DOJ last minute canceled his appearance.

“We actually invited an official from the Drug Enforcement Administration to come on with you,” Bartiromo said. “And we thought we would have a conversation, the three of us. But Biden’s DOJ squashed it.” She added, “They did not want the DEA official to be on to discuss this. So, there is also a media ban on this.”

“Isn’t this information that the public needs to understand, that these wide-open borders, it’s not just about illegals coming into this country and sucking up resources and taking — getting in front of the line for those who are trying to do it legally?” she explained. The DEA’s 2020 Drug Threat Assessment found that “Mexican cartels are increasingly responsible for producing and supplying fentanyl to the U.S. market” and that “they remain the greatest criminal drug threat in the United States.”

A senior DEA official in May told NPR that Mexican agencies have become less transparent with the U.S., making it more difficult to combat the threat.

  1. This makes a lot of sense. Think about that Romanian Mafia boss Florian Tudor who was arrested in Mexico City. His group was operating a credit card skimming syndicate in Mexico. Is he from a "Mexican" cartel? Or is the location of operations not what defines that?

    Do you say "Mexican cartel" according to the ethnicity of the leadership figures? If there is a turn over in leadership and now a majority of the leaders are from Argentina, are they suddenly not a "Mexican cartel"?

    Or is it some arbitrary thing about where the cartel originated?

    Saying "Mexican cartel" is just too ambiguous to be a useful way to describe an organization. Better to just get into the details, like "based out of Sinaloa state, deals in extortion and drug trafficking".

    1. Exactly, the 'Mexican cartels' largely have their roots in Mexico and that may be the home base, but all DTOs by nature are global and leadership could shift.

      Also, look at the recent arrests or indictments of those operating around the world. Living in Spain 15 years organizing shipments/etc but from Colombian, does that make the guy a leader of a Colombian Cartel?

      Or the Australians running operations from UAE or Turkey, etc.

  2. I´m also of the opinion that the term "cartel" shouldn´t be used so easily. It´s an economic term that has nothing to do with the kind of groups operating in Latin America. I think it´s better to say DTOs -as you said Socalj-, criminal organization, criminal group, etc...

    1. Yes. The term cartel has kind of been taken over to solely mean traffickers/etc. it did apply a bit especially with the Medellin cartel as they were independent traffickers that formed alliances to control the market. They’re mostly just straight forward organizations now.

      But it should be noted that the DEA is saying that the term cartel can still be used just not Mexican cartel.

    2. And the Guadalajara Cartel fit the cartel definition as well.

    3. The Mexican word smears every mexican, Maria Bartiromo has long been a trump partisan just like everything related to Fox FAWX NEWS... their journalists claim when taken to court are nothing but shows that adults need to understand do not stick to the facts and the truth, just like the Unpresidented Disgrace they are fans of and his 20 000+ lies he told while in office.
      Maria Bartiromo looks soo pretty from afar, but she can't stand close scrutiny, she is ugly inside and outside.
      By the way I have not received my invitation to the reinstation ceremonies of trump coming back to the Whites' House, even PRESIDENT BIDEN has his tuxedos ready and presents wrapped, but tromp stole the funding too.

  3. Whenever the argument is about what “we call them to not offend anyone”. Political correctness bullshit, people with 4 names born and operating in Mexico are Mexican Cartel.

    1. Criminals in the US government have long tried to smear the Mexicans, we do not accuse the americans for their government's crimes, complicity and crimes against humanity or murders by the millions.

  6. The majority of their drugs come from Mexico. They are Mexican drug cartels. If the majority of the drugs are coming from Columbia they are Columbian cartels. No need to be "politically correct" pussies about it.

    1. By that logic certain organizations that appear to be culturally considered a “Mexican cartel” were at certain points in their history “Colombian cartels”. And then it becomes a weird game of defining what a "majority of their drugs" means.

      Because hypothetically let's say a group traffics both marijuana and cocaine across the border into the US. The group's marijuana is grown in Mexico and their cocaine is produced in Columbia... Do you define "the majority of their drugs" by the weight of products trafficked annually? Or is "the majority" defined by the revenue made from the sales annually? And then is that definition of what a “majority” should mean universally understood within the context of the discussions it is used in.

      I believe this memo got traction as a story within the US news because people who hate the idea of “political correctness” automatically assumed this was due to “political correctness” and never really engaged with the content of the issue.

    2. The guy caught fondling the US flag who also tried to grab Bill Clinton's schwang in front of Hillary, used "mexican" to smear mexicans, the Bidden administration is trying to do the right thing, it is not right to blame the police for the egregious crimes of a few racist corrupt officers, same with mexicans, not every one is a rapist or a criminal drug trafficker like money laundering US banksters.

    1. Originator of the Orange Virus, The Unpresidented Oringe Disgrace used to smear the KungFu virus on the chinese, and wanted Obama to go back to his country, there is a definite need to re-write political correctness, and not let it to the American Taliban fans of dictatorial smear campaigns to decide what goes on.

Are you that hurt by the truth and the reality that Narco Culture is a fucking joke and glorifies the worst pos motherfuckers and is a big part of the problem ? The real problem is people like you so sure of yourself so Smarmy like a liitle brat that talks shit and runs and tries to hide behind someone elses leg . I say this because your all over these comments throwing your pathetic narrow minded views like a fucking fly buzzing around the pile of shit that is the comment section of borderland beat always blaming someone else like you know some deeper knowledge of the Cia's Black ops and have it all figured out . How important you must feel sitting there in all of your Smarmy glory like any of this shit matters . We get it you dont like Trump theres always gonna be people like you manipulating and doing everything you can to not accept the truth to not hear the truth and absolutely not see the truth and start the blame game . You are a fn idiot the moment you decided to call me a poo poo head and actually posted that shit was the monebt I realised what a fn idiot you are! At least I know what to get you for Xmas a set of balls and a backbone . Now you better run along before I tell you how I really feel. Mr Fowl mouth toddler .

    4. Chi blaster yes I agree with the poo poo comment maybe he meant to say PO PO , maybe Pocahontas , what ever it may be I think fowl mouth toddler was a cartoon in 2005 right? Because I remember a cartoon like that on a comedy chanel or maybe it was BEBE KIDS , the balls and back bone part I might be able to adjust to unless one of the balls goes limp and shrivels up too soon , or falls off . I have never heard of that word SHARMY before only the toilet paper named Charmin it's really soft and thick even the commercial with that bear and the Charmin .ANd as for the enfiment heart part I just don't get it, is it some kind of Christmas decorations you were talking about like jingle bell dingle things?I know flys land on shit but I wonder what they do after they land in my ramen soup , if it's spicy they will drown if it's got chicharones in it they will crawl up on it like it's a safety boat and then dry off the wings for a bit and fly off to another piece of crap or something.CHinblaster ummm your comment makes since but I mean some of it I just don't see happening your picture looks like your real name was kieth or Gordon ? Did that say that in your blogger profile? I could be mistaken but these days everything gets mistaken alot.Have a great night .
