The DEA identifies nine Mexican cartels among the groups responsible for drug trafficking to the United States

The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has identified nine Mexican cartels as the most influential when it comes to smuggling drugs onto US soil.

For the DEA, which is part of the US Department of Justice, the Mexican cartels are “increasingly responsible” for producing and supplying drugs to the US market, especially fentanyl.

According to its 2020 National Drug Threat Assessment report, these cartels would be the Sinaloa cartel, the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel, the Beltrán Leyva Organization, the Northeast Cartel and Los Zetas, as well as Guerreros Unidos, the Gulf Cartel, the Cartel de Juárez and La Línea, La Familia Michoacana, and Los Rojos.

As the newspaper ‘El Universal’ has indicated, these criminal groups have been accused of exporting “significant wholesale quantities of fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana in the United States annually.”

However, the DEA has clarified that “China continues to be a key source of supply for the chemical precursors that the Mexican cartels use to produce the large quantities of fentanyl that they smuggle.”

In addition, he has assured that the antagonistic criminal groups of Sinaloa and Jalisco Nueva Generación used the pandemic for the new coronavirus to “artificially inflate” the prices of methamphetamine, produced in clandestine laboratories in Sinaloa, Durango and Michoacán.
