"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

Video translation is as follows:

In other news, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel has lost strength. Due to the hunt undertaken by the armed forces for the main heads of the criminal group. According to intelligence reports from the Jalisco government, the cartel now appears fragmented and weakened. This is due to the fact that in their stronghold in Puerto Vallarta the federal authorities enforced their efforts to arrest the ringleaders. And at the same time dismantle its structure.

Among them stands out the arrest on January 23 of Carlos Pelayo Muñoz aka Don Carlos, one of the financial operators of El Mencho. He is considered one of the main links within the chain of command of the criminal group. There is also the killing on April 22 of Saúl Alejandro Rincón Godoy aka El Chopa or El Vallarta, Señor Vallarta. While the last major arrest took place just on Saturday in Mazatlán, Sinaloa following the apprehension of Francisco aka El Señorón, the plaza boss in Morelos.

According to the authorities, these casualties have reduced the power of the cartel and added to the arrests of leaders. The Jalisco New Generation Cartel has also been weakened by a series of betrayals within its organization. One of these wars by decisions of the cartel is the one that they dispute within the limits of Michoacán and Jalisco. A group of hit men loyal to Mencho and a dissident group called the Pájaros Sierra led by Ernesto Mascorro Martínez aka El Chaparro. This struggle is the main source of violence in the area. And in fact, the confrontation reported yesterday in Mazamitla, Jalisco, which left 3 dead, took place within the framework of this conflict.
