Mexican Official Threatens to Combat President Trump By “Unleashing Drug Cartels”

drug-cartel-killings

There will be war in the streets, or at least there could be.

The strong armed tactics against Mexico are not making officials happy south of the border.

Now, with an executive order facilitating the deportation of illegal immigrants – and especially those who have committed criminal offenses – as well as building a wall on the border, President Trump has many Mexicans up in arms.

Jorge Castañeda Gutman, former Secretary of Foreign Affairs in Mexico, took things a step further during an interview on CNN with Fareed Zakaria when he suggested that Mexico’s previous cooperation with the U.S. in curbing the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants could end.

Instead, the cartels could be essentially unleashed upon the U.S. – retribution for tough policies on Mexico and other immigrant-producing countries in the Latin American world.

These astonishing words could open up an economic gang war against the U.S. –  very irresponsible words that reveal just how connected Mexico’s leadership is with the violent drug cartels who operate from their territories:

Mexico has a lot of negotiating chips in this matter, Fareed, but it also has measures we could take in other areas. For example, the drugs that come through Mexico from South America, or the drugs that are produced here in Mexico all go to the United States. This is not our problem. We have been cooperating with the United States for many years on these issues because they’ve asked us to and because we have a friendly, trustful relationship. If that relationship disappears, the reasons for cooperation also disappear.

The implications are astoundingly clear – Mexico would consider exporting chaos and violence into the United States as a form of payback for immigration restrictions and controls against the instability that the southern border has brought to the country for decades.

Out of bitterness or desperation, or a mix of both, Mexico’s finest would apparently weaponize their most brutal elements and deliberately send them North to sow chaos – only proving the reasons for controlling the border and reigning in the deterioration of the U.S. standard of living that has been going on for such a long time now.

Though no one would win, things could get pretty ugly…

Drug cartels and Mexican gangs have killed an estimated 40,000 people over the past decade in Mexico alone, as well as plenty of people on the U.S. side as well. Beheadings, etc. have gripped headlines and terrified the population.

The collusion of the Mexican government has worsened the problem, and the largest issues continue to explode. Why exactly shouldn’t President Trump attempt to stop this insane violence and deadly trafficking?

Here’s the full interview:

Trump’s moves against immigration, et al. have the other side in a tail spin – and now it may be war of one kind or another.

Clearly, they will play dirty.

    This man works for the cartels not his country.

    Bring the troops home, close the border, send the progressives to Mexico where they can’t protest against the government. We are tired of having other countries telling us what we need to do. If you think the cartels are not in control of Mexico, you don’t know squat. The drug madness has to stop. Let those who want drugs, move to the countries that produce them.

      And if u are so smart.. can you name the american cartels? Mexican cartels run mexico using corruption and violence.. and if the same cartels operate in the USA them we have a huge corruption problem here.. mexico is the biggest wholesaler of drugs for the USA.. BUT THE USA is the biggest retailer, getting a bigger profit.. put it this way a kilo of pure cocaine is worth around 20k the retailers, or the unknown american cartels cut that kilo into eight or ten kilos.. making between 6 to 8 times that money , so from 20k they sell it for 120k to 160k that same kilo.. i think is clear how powerful the american cartels are, so powerful that they are unknown , because if youbthink thatvel chapo is running the show.. well let me burts your bubble.. a guy in constant hiding ( ow in an USA jail) with no former esucation, moving billions of dollar in 110 countries in a better way rhan warren or soros is hardvto belive.. dont be focusing on mexico, yes mexico is corrupted and the mexican cartels have bought a lot of politicians and security forces.. mexico is just a smoke courtain . The real criminal are the american cartels. Name just one cartel in the USA .. they are unknown to the public. They are protected by our politicians..

    Why do the elected powers in Mexico claim to have influence/authority over the “drug cartels”? The corruption in MEXICO IS HUGE at all levels of government. So is he saying that their working relationship with the “cartels” keeps certain activities off of USA soil? He has ability to unleash it? The cartels would listen to him and spend their time/money/ and blood for the government of Mexico? Why? What are they getting out of it? Freedom to do their dirty business as usual unfettered in Mexico? If this is the case and the corruption is so thorough, why would we respect and be friends with the Mexican government anyway? Geography doesn’t make good relationships..at all. I feel sorry for the people of Mexico.

    Yes, how dare we suggest we want to protect our borders from drug cartels and a further influx of gangs! Mexico has a wall on its southern border and jails illegals. It exports its poor to America in order to save cash on welfare — let America pay for its poor] and the 2nd biggest cash import aside from Pemex Oil is from illegals in the US sending cash back to Mexico! Wouldn’t surprise if the cartels are behind this to protest drug profits.
