Mexican cartel leaders live and work in the United States: DEA

Leaders within Mexican drug cartels are placing some of their best men in the United States to control their lucrative drug trafficking business. The fear associated with this growth is that if US authorities are not able to curb it now, it will be more difficult to combat in the future. It is also likely that Mexican drug cartels would start conducting prostitution, extortion, and kidnappings in the United States just as they do in Mexico.

One would think that Mexican drug cartel operatives would create operational hubs in Border States. However, they are known to have key operational centers in at least 9 non-border states such as
Columbus, Ohio, Louisville, Kentucky, Atlanta, Georgia, and suburban areas in North Carolina, amongst
others. And, Mexican cartel operatives are not living in the inner-city. Instead they are living in middle class suburban neighborhoods. In 2008, Mexican drug cartels were operational in at least 230
communities in the United States. In 2011, this number increased to 1,200 cities.

Authorities in Chicago noted a change in Mexican drug cartel operations approximately 2 years ago when they stopped using intermediaries to sell their drugs and instead, began sending individuals from their own organizations. To combat this problem Chicago, authorities are coordinating with federal agents to conduct phone tapping operations and to infiltrate local drug trafficking organizations.

Arrests of Mexican Drug Cartel Operatives in US Cities:
· Authorities arrested four Los Zetas operators in Okolona; a suburban neighborhood located in the
outskirts of Louisville, Kentucky. Items seized from the house in which these Mexican nationals
were living included 1,100 kg of marijuana and more than US$1 million in cash.
· In 2008, La Familia Michoacana sent José González Zavala to live in Chicago. He entered the
country legally and rented a house on 1416 Brookfield Drive; a middle-class neighborhood in
Joliet. He was responsible for overseeing drug shipments sent to Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana.
Phone tapping operations recorded calls made by González Zavala to a cartel head in Mexico.
· Jorge Guadalupe Ayala, another La Familia Michoacana operator, was sent to Chicago to collect
payments. He was assigned to this position for approximately 2 years during which time he
earned $300 a week. Upon his return to Mexico, he was to be paid $35,000 but never received
this amount because he was arrested in the United States. Ayala did not come to the United States
alone. He brought his wife and son with him.
· In 2011, Socorro Hernández Rodríguez was arrested in Gwinnett County which is located on the
outskirts of Atlanta. He was accused of running a large-scale drug trafficking business financed
by La Familia Michoacana.
· In February 2013, authorities in Columbus, Ohio arrested Isaac Eli Pérez Neri, 34. He allegedly
worked as a debt collector at the service of the Sinaloa Cartel.

Mexican drug cartels prefer to send their own people because they are more trustworthy. Many times,
cartel operatives working in the United States have loved ones living in Mexico. If something goes
wrong, their family members will pay the price. For this reason, Mexican drug cartel operatives arrested
in the United States are less likely to cooperate with US authorities for fear of reprisals to their family
members in Mexico.
