Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación Expands in Three States


The criminal group has expanded its operations in Michoacán, Zacatecas and Guanajuato in the last four years, as they are key points, which has increased violence in those places

In the last four years, the violent incursion of the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) has increased mainly in three states: Michoacán, Zacatecas and Guanajuato.

Although the general objective would be the expansion of the criminal group to establish its routes for the transfer of drugs to the United States, in each entity the reasons why they have been present have been different and in recent years the levels of violence have increased in those places.

In Michoacán, for example, according to different sources, the offensive is due to the organization's leader, Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, El Mencho, seeking to seize his homeland.

In Zacatecas, the geographical location and connectivity have made the state one of its objectives, since it’s the obligatory route that connects the Pacific Ocean with the main border areas in the north of the country and with the United States; But in the last decade, Zacatecas has suffered from the settlement of at least five cartels, mainly due to the commercialization of fentanyl, which has become popular on US soil and is cheaper, stronger and more lethal than cocaine and heroin.

In Guanajuato, since October 2017, their presence was more noticeable when José Antonio Yépez Ortiz, El Marro, leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel (CSRL) openly declared war on them to control fuel theft in the so-called huachicol triangle. In the municipalities of Apaseo el Grande, Salamanca, León, Irapuato and Celaya.

He wants to dominate his native land

Michoacán was one of the first states in the country where the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel began its armed expansion in 2014 and, according to the inhabitants and authorities of the regions where it has attacked, everything is derived from a “whim” of its criminal leader.

Sources consulted explain that the objective of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes is to seize his native land: Aguililla.

However, it was at the end of 2019 when the CJNG offensive to enter Michoacán intensified; The first case was on August 30, 2019 in the municipality of Tepalcatepec, which cost Mencho the death of nine of his hitmen and 11 more who were injured, after the population and local police responded to the attack.

"Before the attacks we had threats by telephone, by way of messages and through emissaries that the CJNG wanted to enter, as the Knights Templar were in charge at the time," explained José Luis, a businessman living in Tierra Caliente.

The rancher reported that the residents participated to prevent the criminals from entering. On that occasion they notified the authorities of the threats and were ignored. "We didn’t understand why the Jalisco Cartel wanted to take over our towns, but now we know that it’s out of pure ego, to say that they have control of their home state and because he wants to return to retire here," he said.

On October 14, 2019, another CJNG armed criminal cells ambushed state police in Aguililla, leaving 14 officers dead and two more wounded in the town of El Aguaje, in addition to the fact that they had previously perpetrated several massacres in the municipality of Uruapan. 

During 2020, the attacks of that criminal organization didn’t stop in the Tierra Caliente region and, on the contrary, they have spread to other municipalities such as Los Reyes, Tocumbo, Tingüindín, Peribán and Zamora.

In December of last year, in just three days, CJNG cells carried out attacks in 10 different municipalities in Michoacán, most of them on the border with Jalisco.

The CJNG had a presence in Michoacán since 2014, when the self-defense groups extinguished the Los Caballeros Templarios cartel.

Oseguera spread his cells throughout different municipalities of Michoacán, especially in Tierra Caliente, Sierra and Sierra-Costa.

The split in 2018 of said cartel also caused a break between its lieutenants, who were exiled from Michoacán by the Los Viagras cartel. El Mencho's obsession to return to his land, Aguililla, made him confront the surviving armed civilian groups, which he attacked with greater intensity since 2019.

In addition, Oseguera Cervantes faces a battle with Érick Valencia Salazar, El 85, his former founding partner of the CJNG. Valencia Salazar has already snatched several municipalities in Michoacán and Jalisco, but also formed a criminal bloc with the Sierra Santana brothers, from Los Viagras.


  1. Who wrote this article it sound like something anabel hernadez would write. Everyone knows how CJNG came into Michcoan. El Maguey from Buenavista already said it. CJNG funded the Autodefensas and made deals with El PRI.

    Los Viagras with orders from La Tuta wanted to join the movement, viagrs betray La Tuta. El Migueldads made deals with the movement and he joins. The templarios that were affected by the autodefensas were the Templarios that existed in Tepaltepec, La Costa, Lazaro Cardenas, Apatzingan, Urupan, Nueva Italia. Just so everyone knows the Tempalrios in Los Reyes were left intact the first to flip and join CJNG, Aguillila the first to flip and join CJNG, La Costa the first to flip and join CJNG, Zamora, La Piedad, the only one that was affected there was El Raton. All the other Templarios are still around they either joined Los Viagras, Los del Cartel de Tepaltepec or are still Tempalrios

    Main Templarios who lost because of the Movement the whole leadership of the Cartel Nazario Moreno Gonzalez, Kike Plancarte, La Tuta, El Pantera and thsoe who choose to follow them and not flip. El Tukan, El Seco, ect are still around even if they did go to prison.

    Current Templarios El Metro Zamora, El Raton Zamora, El Seco Apatzingan , El Tukan Antunez, El Gallito Apatzingan near Hollanda and surrounding areas, El Fresa married Kike Plancartes widow Morelia, El Chompon Zamora, El Tena, Tumbiscatio, Aguillila, Lazaro Cardenas is also controlled by Los Templarios, Arteaga, Patzcuaro Valencias, and their are other areas where the Templarios Control like Manny Carrilo who was just captured and let go in Paracuaro.

    From what is said CJNG controls Cotija, Sahuayo, Tangamandapio, Yurecuaro, La Piedad, Ecuandureo, Tangancicuero, they surround Zamora except from the road that goes to Los Reyes they flipped on CJNG the people from that area. Zacapu. The thing is who knows they could have also flipped on them. CJNG has or had people in Tacambaro, Turicato, Nocupetaro, Huetamo, they were saying Churumuco, Arteaga was supposibly CJNG but they flipped that was what the Viagras pages were saying.

    Then they were saying that El Migueladas isn't with CJNG that he is indipendent of CJNG and Carteles Unidos he controls La Huacana, Nueva Italia and a few other areas surround Nueva Italia.

    1. Good shit bro keep it coming👍
      Do you know anything from the San Martin area by Puruandiro?? I have many friends from there

    2. 11:13 AM You have to look at the map and figure it out I would say either Jalisco or Tempalario. Just so you know the main leadership of any cell in Michcoan are all ex templarios, ex familia Michocana, ex zetas, ex milenio, ex smaller indi groups. Puruandiro doesn't have anything worth of value except for extortion and local drug sales and other vices.

    3. Which are the viagras facebook pages?

    4. This "article" by El Universal is a half assed rehash with obvious mistakes, it's WORTHLESS but no offense to BB. Basically all the land that's next to Lago de Chapala on the Michoacán side is controlled by CJNG. Commentators that don't know shit about the land will write that they've completely lost Michoacán but like I already wrote, these fools don't know shit. Because they have territorial control of these areas is how they were able to enter GTO and fight CSRDL for control of the state.
      The Sierra Santana/Los Viagras are from Guerrero, esos bueyes son unos muertos de hambre (MDH) putos secuestradores, esa gente les gusta sembrar cizaña y así voltean a otros lacras igual que ellos.
      El SARGY has the best info about Michoacán, does videos almost every day.

    5. Theres some clown over at narcofootage whos alway calling out el sargy. Personally I thought El Sargy was a CJNG but turns out hes some sort of journalist.

    6. El 7:56 si sabe de que habla.

    7. Told you,you can read this cats comments,keep postin bro

    8. There are a lot of clowns on narco footage for real

    9. Hope to fuck they dont(narco footage)migrate here to BN

    10. @7:56 Lol la zona next to Chapala in Michoacán is worthless that's why they got it. What matters is Lázaro Cárdenas and Tierra Caliente. CJNG are terrorists and you know it, no one likes them at those areas in both Micho and Los Altos de Jalisco sides. Sargy had to put social pressure on CJNG so they released a woman and her children in La Barca.

      CJNG also robs innocent people from their vehicles on the La Barca - Sahuayo road.

    11. 3:28 you obviously aren't from that area so you wouldn't know the value but just write a lo pendejo. Fool if la gente can live in relative peace without being extorted or levantado than the regular economy can produce at its capacity and money can circulate, etcétera, etcétera. Que dijo el comandante del CJNG, "nosotros somos ________________", no putos MUERTOS DE HAMBRE que de todo quieren arremangar y tener a la gente valiendo verga por unos putos ojetes mal nacidos. You fools are playing catch-up, first CJNG got ousted from the state and now según tu they only control a worthless part of the state, ninja please STFU and GTFOH
      Regarding the woman and her two children, she was the partner of one of the leaders of los pecho duros and she and her children were safely returned. What did the pecho duros do to get picked up by their own people is the important question.
      Like it has already been proven, Sargy has the best information regarding Michoacán. The scale
      of it is simply overwhelming period. Compare it to all the garbage CULITOS UNIDOS can fabricate, if you're not from Michoacán you need to simply STFU regarding who fucks with the civilian population less..
