Research claims Jalisco New Generation Cartel is now the most important
by: Narcodata on September 28, 2016


New Generation Jalisco Cartel grew during the presidency of Enrique Peña Nieto, becoming the largest in the country, according to a investigation of Narcodata Political Animal.

On the webpage it states that the criminal group was hardly recognized as drug cartel, with national and international trafficking in 2011, and in five years has become the criminal group with more presence in the country, even above the Sinaloa cartel.

"It has operations in 14 states and surpasses even the Sinaloa Cartel, which has historically dominated the drug business," he says.

"It's first operations occurred in Jalisco, Nayarit and Colima, where it emerged as a criminal organization. But then spreads to Michoacan, Guanajuato, Veracruz, Guerrero, Morelos, San Luis Potosi, State of Mexico and even in 2014 the Office reported its presence in the Federal District ".

The latest information from Mexican and US authorities on its operations in June 2016, indicates that the CJNG already has a presence also in Aguascalientes, Baja California and reached the coasts of the states of Oaxaca and Chiapas in southeastern Mexico.

Currently it is the only criminal organization with a presence in both the Gulf states of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean, from the northern border and the southern border.

"The DEA and the United States Department of the Treasury agree that a key factor in its rapid expansion is sharing operations with the criminal group Los Cuinis, experts in trafficking cocaine and methamphetamines but especially in washing money, "says the text.

"The leader of the Cuinis, Abigael González Valencia -before member of the now disappeared Millennium Cartel arrested in Mexico in February 2015, is brother of Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, El Mencho".

The Office for the Control of Foreign Assets (OFAC) of the Department of the Treasury, he included both in April 2015 in its list of major drug traffickers under the most important law in the United States on the commission of drug offenses (Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act).

In the investigation it mentioned that the cartel has used to rocket launchers to shoot down helicopters and reacts violently whenever criminals of their organization are detained.

"On May 1, 2015 CJNG changed the paradigm of the struggle of four decades between the Mexican state and organized crime: used a rocket launcher to shoot down a helicopter of the Mexican Army. Before that, the drug cartels had shown that their combat power was able to resist, but not exceed, the federal government, "he says.

The Mexican armed forces acknowledged that they had never before suffered such an attack, in which eight soldiers died.

But shoot down a helicopter in Guadalajara, Jalisco, was not the only one to this day the criminal group that just in 2011 had been included as one of the nine drug cartels operating in the country: the Cartel Jalisco New Generation also installed 39 blockades in 20 municipalities in three states to stop the federal forces, armed with four matches staged police and military and, most importantly, prevented the arrest of its leader and founder Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, El Mencho.

It was not the first time that cartel reacted with such a level of violence and to an operating strategy of the federal government. A month earlier they had made an ambush on police: the April 7, 2015 members of the One Force, the police force of Jalisco, was returning from a community on the coast of the state when a vehicle blocked the road in the village of Soyatán . Gunmen shot and killed 15 policemen and wounded five others.

The state Commissioner of Public Security, Alejandro Solorio Arechiga said the ambush was a reaction to an operation in which they arrested Heriberto Acevedo Cardenas, El Gringo, one of the ringleaders in the region of Jalisco New Generation Cartel.

Local authorities have had to recognize that whenever there is an arrest or death of a senior member, the cartel responds with violence.

But not only that: never before has a criminal organization had grown as quickly in Mexico. Large drug cartels that dominated the business in the 1980s and 1990s in the country advanced during three presidential administrations.

While records of the Attorney General's Office (PGR) indicate that since 2011, when New Generation Jalisco emerged, it has most of its operations in the Mexican Pacific -Colima, Jalisco and Nayarit, the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA, for its acronym in English) and the Treasury Department identified the presence from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific; and border to border: from southeast to northwest.

Information and Mexican authorities realize this cartel activities in 14 states, almost half of the national territory.

Origin and transformation

Ignacio Nacho Coronel, leader of the Sinaloa Cartel in Jalisco, died on July 29, 2010, during an operation of the Mexican Army. In addition to controlling that area of ​​the Pacific, in his later years he devoted himself to forming an armed group dedicated to preventing the entry of the group Los Zetas, a criminal organization with greater progress in national territory during the presidency of Felipe Calderon, after separation Gulf Cartel, in its area of ​​influence.

This armed group of Nacho Coronel was known as Los Mata Zetas.

Mexican authorities identified in the beginning only as a criminal cell of the Sinaloa cartel, but a year after the death of Nacho Coronel, in 2011, its independence was recognized and appeared in official records as the ninth criminal organization with a presence in the country (along with Tijuana cartels, Juarez, Sinaloa, Gulf, Beltran Leyva, Los Zetas, La Familia Michoacana and the Knights Templar).

Javier Valdez Cardenas, writer and specialist in drug-trafficking journalist, the consolidation of the cartel had the key moment the death of Colonel: "That void was occupied by Jalisco New Generation with their leaders, with their own routes and new partners, but taking advantage of the structure that already had the Sinaloa Cartel, which stood aimlessly in the region. "

The journalist says that as an independent force, Jalisco New Generation made pacts with the Sinaloa Cartel to prevent Jalisco area became a battlefield and even the Mencho traveled to Sinaloa to strengthen these commitments.

49 bodies were abandoned on the streets of Boca del Rio, Veracruz, with hands and feet tied and signs of torture: the September 24, 2011, the Mata Zetas are behind one of the worst massacres during the administration of Felipe Calderon.

Nemesio Oseguera The Mencho and the leader of the Cuinis, Abigael González Valencia and founded the New Generation Jalisco Cartel, born of the armed wing of Nacho Coronel and the remains of the Millennium Cartel or Valencia. It operated as an ally of the Sinaloa Cartel since the 1980s and during the presidency of Vicente Fox when its founder, Armando Valencia Cornelio Maradona, was arrested in 2003 and the federal government gave the organization disappeared.

According to the DEA, the advance of Jalisco New Generation Cartel began in 2011 with the taking of territories in Michoacan and Veracruz, which formerly belonged to the Knights Templar and Los Zetas, respectively.

Alejandro Hope, an expert on security issues, said that at least two times the action or inaction of the authorities has led the consolidation of the cartel.

The first was between 2011 and 2013 when in Veracruz Los Mata Zetas Los Zetas faced: "There was an official tolerance to them to hit Los Zetas, who had become an extremely violent group."

"The fall of the Knights Templar cartel after the federal offensive is another fact to note he adds. That was their rival cartel territory in the area of ​​Michoacan and Jalisco, as well as in the market for methamphetamines. The weakening after 2014 of the Knights Templar has strengthened the Cartel de Jalisco. To all this the capture of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, which also can be used by Jalisco New Generation for expansion "is added.

The DEA warns that while cartels including that of Sinaloa focused on repelling the federal forces in the War on Drugs, Jalisco New Generation advanced in the country.

Last March, the General US Consulate in Tijuana said in its report on Crime and Security in northwest Mexico, which in the quest to master the main trafficking routes for drugs, Jalisco New Generation is facing in the northern border the old cartels.

Tijuana is an area historically dominated by the cartel of the Arellano Felix brothers, but also with the presence of other organizations has been disputed by groups like the Sinaloa Cartel or Juarez, as the step towards a major trafficking route both land and by sea.

The strongest?

"CJNG has used violence and corruption to become one of the most powerful drug trafficking organizations in Mexico," in September 2015 said John E. Smith, director of the Office for the Control of Foreign Assets Department US Treasury.

Seven months later, the official said that his country makes every effort to dismantle the network of money laundering "the powerful" criminal organization.

Javier Olea regard, professor and researcher at the Faculty of Political Sciences at UNAM and National Security expert says that this cartel has been strengthened by recruiting members of Knights Templar and La Familia Michoacana.

In less than five years Jalisco New Generation entered the "black list" of the United States as one of the most important drug trafficking organizations. With the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, detained since January 2016, its leader Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes Mencho is now a priority.
