DOJ says Mexican cartels operating in over 1,000 U.S. cities By Nicholas Ballasy - The Daily Caller 12:12 PM 09/29/2011 ADVERTISEMENT

Mexican-based transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) were “operating in more than a thousand U.S. cities during 2009 and 2010, spanning all nine Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) regions,” according to the U.S. Justice Department’s National Drug Threat Assessment of 2011.

According to the report, the National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) assesses with “high confidence” that Mexican-based TCOs “control distribution of most of the heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamine available in the United States” and production of these drugs in Mexico “appears to be increasing.”

However, the report says that an “analysis of law enforcement information reveals variations in the primary type of illicit drugs trafficked by each of the seven main Mexican-based TCOs and the regions of the United States where their operations are concentrated.”

The primary regions where the TCOs have been operating are Florida/Caribbean, Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, New England, New York/New Jersey, Pacific, Southeast, Southwest and West Central.

“Mexican-based trafficking organizations control access to the U.S.–Mexico border, the primary gateway for moving the bulk of illicit drugs into the United States,” says the report.

“The organizations control, simultaneously use, or are competing for control of various smuggling corridors that they use to regulate drug flow across the border.”

“Mexican-based trafficking organizations control access to the U.S.–Mexico border, the primary gateway for moving the bulk of illicit drugs into the United States,” says the report.

Meanwhile, they are concentrating all their efforts in putting up a fence along the U.S.- Canadian border.

Why do we NEED a DOJ? Why do we have a DEA? Why do we need a ATF? Why do we need an ICE? Why do we have a Border Patrol? Why do we have a CONGRESS funding these useless alphabet agencies?

Those agencies are “needed” to release illegal criminals,
to attack genuine American patriots,
to protect Islamonazis in their plans to kill Americans,
and to get weapons to invaders, when they are not
too busy protecting Whitey Bulger and other
DNC luminaries. [/sarcasm]

Keep the southern borders open, too! And be sure to release terrorists caught crossing the border on bail! Big Sis has it all covered at the airport.

There are currently about 1 million documented gang members in the US. That’s documented, in which most cases they admitted membership. In reality, there is probably double that.

Of those gang members, 10 percent are white or asian. The rest are roughly split between blacks and latinos.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but in any other time or nation, 400,000 hostile and armed lawbreakers inside your borders is a flipping invasion or an occupying force.

Further, we as a nation had better pray that someone doesn’t organize those gang members into a guerrilla fighting force, because even though outcome would probably be certain, it would certainly be bloody. Probably as bloody as the last civil war, which at least had some lines that divided North and South. We are dealing with an enemy who has infiltrated 1000 of our cities. And as modern military history has taught us, most casualties in combat come from fighting in built up areas.

And our leadership still sits on its hands.

How could this happen? We all know that those illegal aliens are just coming across the border to do the work that Americans won’t do.
Rape
Slavery
Drug dealing
Prostitution
Beheadings
etc. etc.
Come to think of it, sounds Mayan!

The primary regions where the TCOs have been operating are Florida/Caribbean, Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic, New England, New York/New Jersey, Pacific, Southeast, Southwest and West Central.

In other words....all over the US.

Of course, all those working for the cartels in these 1000 American cities are here legally. The illegals are here picking the lettuce and tomatoes us Americans refuse to pick. /s
