LUBBOCK, Texas — Seven Mexican cartels are operating command and control networks in Texas, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS). A recent data release by the DPS reports:
Mexican cartels are the most significant organized crime threat to Texas, with seven of the eight cartels operating command and control networks in the state, moving drugs and people into the United States, and transporting cash, weapons and stolen vehicles back to Mexico. In short, an unsecure U.S.-Mexico border is a state and national security problem.
Breitbart Texas previously reported on aspects of the DPS report. A long list of crimes against individuals and property, in addition to serious instances of cartel-related public corruption along the Texas-Mexico border were detailed.
