Biden's DEA admits Mexican cartels are operating in all 50 states

The two "most powerful and ruthless" cartels, the Sinaloa and Jalisco cartels, have facilitated the "most dangerous and deadly drug crisis the United States has ever faced."

In its 2024 National Drug Threat Assessment, the Drug Enforcement Agency revealed that Mexican cartels are operating in all 50 states, and have been at the forefront of the "dangerous shift from plant-based to synthetic drugs."

The two "most powerful and ruthless" cartels, the Sinaloa and Jalisco, essentially control the flow of illicit drugs into the United States via their "worldwide organized criminal networks."

According to the agency, while states bordering Mexico are among the hardest hit, others further inland such as Colorado, North Carolina, Illinois, and New York have seen more than their fair share of cartel activity. They've even made it to Alaska and Hawaii.

Both the Sinaloa and Jalisco cartels "rely on chemical companies and pill press companies in China to supply the precursor chemicals and pill presses needed to manufacture the drugs."

The drugs are then manufactured in "clandestine labs in Mexico" before being shuttled across the border into the US, where "associates" complete the process by selling them on the streets.

China-based "underground banking systems" are used to move the profits back to cartel leaders in Mexico.

The DEA explained that by switching to synthetic drugs, the two cartels have facilitated the "most dangerous and deadly drug crisis the United States has ever faced," with man-made substances such as fentanyl and methamphetamine accounting for "nearly all of the fatal drug poisonings in our nation."

"As the lead law enforcement agency in the Administration’s whole-of-government response to defeat the Cartels and combat the drug poisoning epidemic in our communities," Administrator Anne Milgram stated, "DEA will continue to collaborate on strategic counterdrug initiatives with our law enforcement partners across the United States and the world."

As Fox News reports, a number of cartel members have been arrested across the country in recent weeks, including Roque Bustamante, who is better known as "Skittles Man" for allegedly selling rainbow-colored fentanyl pills.

Gee, I wonder how that happened? Could it be because the DOJ, Homeland Security and Joe Biden opened the border to everyone and everything? Naw, say it ain't so Joe.
