I am a consultant and analyst with eight years of military law enforcement experience, six years of analytical experience covering Latin America, and over seven years of analytical experience covering Mexican TCOs and border violence issues. This blog is designed to inform readers about current border violence issues and provide analysis on those issues, as well as detailed focus on specific border topics. By applying my knowledge and experience through this blog, I hope to separate the wheat from the chaff...that is, dispel rumors propagated by sensationalist media reporting, explain in layman's terms what is going on with Mexican TCOs, and most importantly, WHY violence is happening along the US-Mexico border.

Definitely. When Miguel Felix went to jail years and years ago and supposedly 'divided up' the border crossings he controlled between his underlings, the Calexico/Mexicali border crossing was the crossing given to Joaquin Guzman and Hector Palma. It's one of the few that's remained relatively quiet since. It's geographic location also makes it hard for any other cartel to move in on.

The fact that the city of Mexicali has only one drug cartel is not news. One or ten makes no difference. The editor that let this article be published should be fired. This is not news worthy in any sense. Why not report on the actual corruption in both Mexicali and Calexico. Why have more Americans been stopped for bogus traffic violations by the Mexicali police force since the immigration issue has become more upfront. Or maybe the fact that the majority of people living in Calexico cannot even speak English. Let's not put these criminals on a pedestal for keeping other crime organizations out of Mexicali. The Mexicans have lost total control of the country and have lost all respect of those in the world who are watching. We do not need the LA Times shining a light on the fact that Mexicali is in better shape than the rest of the country because only one cartel is in charge.
