Governor-Elect Villarreal, accused of receiving campaign financing from the Cartel del Noreste is at odds with current Governor Francisco Cabeza de Vaca (right).

On September 21, Américo Villareal, the elected governor of Tamaulipas, accused the current state president, Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca, of being behind the issuance of an arrest warrant against him. The state government issued a message in which it assured that the State Attorney General's Office had not issued any order against the Governor-Elect from the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) party.

“It is false that there are or that arrest warrants have been issued against him, relatives, or close collaborators, as he publicly declared this day,” the statement read. “The only arrest warrants that exist against any of the people to whom Mr. Villareal Anaya could refer were issued in 2018 and 2021, cases that have been made public in the media due to the amparos that have been processed. The interested parties and that since they are current cases, no more details can be offered,” explained the Government of Tamaulipas.

Governor-Elect Villarreal claimed his arrest and that of seven others would be imminent.

At a press conference, Villarreal commented: "A few moments ago, we received information that Francisco Javier García Cabeza de Vaca met with a judge who unfortunately seems to have lent himself to a dirty and reprehensible game, to process and release eight arrest warrants against elected authorities, members of the party and apparently against me.”

He pointed to Judge Miguel Moreno Castillo, who was attached to Altamira but was moved to Ciudad Victoria to issue arrest warrants against the Municipal President of Ciudad Victoria, Eduardo Gattás Báez, the brother of the Municipal President of Nuevo Laredo, Carlos Canturosas, and the State Leader of the Green Party, Manuel Muñoz, among others, according to Villarreal.

He also described the event as "a shameful and sinister plan that seeks to impose judicial terror measures to break social peace and unsuccessfully try to get the Fourth Transformation to arrive in Tamaulipas on October 1." He also highlighted the support he has received from President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and claimed to have the support of the Secretary of the Interior, Adán Augusto López Hernández and the entire militancy of the National Regeneration Movement (Morena).

The supposed arrest warrants are in relation to the recently leaked supposed documents written by US Ambassador to Mexico Ken Salazar. It was the columnist Héctor de Mauleón who, on September 19, published an article in which he spread the alleged links of Américo Villareal and another Senator with the Cartel del Noreste (CDN). Ambassador Ken Salazar has denied that these cables came from the US.

According to the journalist's column, in said records the officials would have met with Gerardo Teodoro Vázquez Barrera, alleged financial operator of the CDN. The meeting took place in a restaurant in the south of Mexico City, before Vázquez, also known as El Gerry, disappeared last March shortly after the meeting. Also allegedly at the meeting was a pair of Marines assigned as protection to Senator Jose Narro Cespedes. The Marines have also been missing since the time of the meeting. Narro denies that they acted as his bodyguards or that he requested them.

According to the publication, Morena's campaign would have been financed by "El Gerry," operator of the criminal group CDN.
