Texas Congressman Unveils Bill to Designate Certain Mexican Cartels as Terrorist Organizations


The bill would focus on the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas and the Metros faction of the Gulf Cartel; the two main criminal organizations linked to the current immigration surge at the Texas border. In 2019 Roy also called for a similar measure asking the U.S. Department of State to designate certain cartels. The changes would allow for more asset freezes and apply diplomatic pressure on Mexico City to crack down on the organizations.

According to a series of exclusive interviews with Roy during a series of border trips, the Gulf Cartel and the CDN faction of Los Zetas have profited from the current border crisis while kidnapping, extorting. and abusing migrants.

Both the Zetas and the Gulf Cartel are linked to mass graves and clandestine incineration sites in Mexico.
