Time to Designate Mexican Drug Cartels as Terrorist Organizations?
Texas Governor Greg Abbot has sent a letter to President Biden and Vice President Harris to designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations. Here is a snippet from his letter.
As Governor of Texas, I urge you to take immediate action to combat the dangerous and deadly Mexican drug cartels. These cartels bring terror into our communities. They smuggle narcotics and weapons into the United States to fund their illegal enterprises. They force women and children into human and sex trafficking—enriching themselves on the misery and enslavement of immigrants. They murder innocent people, including women and children. These Mexican drug cartels are foreign terrorist organizations, and it is time for the federal government to designate them as such.
Of course, if you've ever seen The Last Narc, which is available on Amazon Prim now, then you're probably thinking something similar to this... "How can they be foreign terrorist organizations if we're knee deep in what they're doing to help with our own interests, while we don't actually care who gets caught in the wake?"
Seriously, go watch The Last Narc. It's all about the horrific story of what happened to Kiki Camarena. The whole runtime of the series is just over 180 minutes. Spoiler alert, by the way, there was totally US agents involved in the torture and murder of Kiki Camarena. Of course, those that are called out in the documentary have disputed the claims, so you can come to your own conclusion.
