Mexico has long been a staging and transshipment point for narcotics, illegal immigrants and contraband destined for U.S. markets from Mexico itself, South America and elsewhere. During the 1980s and early 1990s, Colombia’s Pablo Escobar was the main exporter of cocaine and dealt with organized criminal networks all over the world. At first, the Mexican gangs were paid in cash for their transportation services, but in the late 1980s, the Mexican transport organizations and the Colombian drug traffickers settled on a payment-in-product arrangement. This arrangement meant that organizations from Mexico became involved in the distribution, as well as the transportation of cocaine, and became formidable traffickers in their own right.

The demise of the Colombian Cali and Medellin cartels in 1990s allowed the Mexican cartels to expand their powers so that they now control 90% of the cocaine entering the United States. Unconfirmed reports place the death toll of the Mexican Drug War at over 100,000. Although the Mexican government and military are pledged to dismantle the cartels and stop the violence in their country; corruption and fear of cartel reprisals continue to plague Mexican counter-narcotic efforts. Eight or more major cartels are currently active in Mexico, often battling one another for production and distribution networks as well as counter-narcotic teams from the United States and Mexico.

The Mexican cartels are known for ruthless violence and brazen attacks… the Mexican drug wars between rival cartels and the government have claimed countless lives.

The Mama Gallo Cartel is a recent offshoot of Los Zetas. A leadership dispute among the Zetas spun off several fragments from this cartel originally founded by a group of former elite Mexican army soldiers originally hired to operate as a private army for the Gulf Cartel. They were instrumental in the Gulf Cartel’s domination of the drug trade in much of Mexico for many years. When the leader of the Gulf Cartel was arrested in 2007, the Zetas, now numbering approximately 300, set up its own independent drug, arms and human-trafficking networks. The Mama Gallo Cartel broke away from the Zetas in 2014 and has carved itself a small but lucrative territory straddling the Texas and Mexican border. Like the Zetas, the Mama Gallos are notorious for targeting civilians and have also been connected to human trafficking and extortion.

The Mama Gallos control of the Piedras Negras border region has grown to a point that the Mexican government has invited a US Counter-Narco task force led by DEA FAST personnel and supported by US SOCOM troops to officially “train” with Mexican Federales along the border region. Unofficially, the US Counter-Narco task force will be conducting joint missions with the Federales against the Mama Gallo Cartel!
