My Photo
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.


With over a dozen years of combined experience in military law enforcement, force protection analysis, and writing a variety of professional products for the US Air Force, state government in California, and the general public, Ms. Longmire has the expertise to create a superior product for you or your agency to further your understanding of Mexico’s drug war. Longmire Consulting is dedicated to being on the cusp of the latest developments in Mexico in order to bring you the best possible analysis of threats posed by the drug violence south of the border.

Are you from El Paso? There is NO spillover from Juarez, there has been only one and one only related kidnapping here in El Paso, but that is it. I live and was born and raised in El Paso and there is no spillover whatsoever here, the only people that are dying from the violence in Juarez are the ones who cross into Juarez.

Another thing to add. Your saying that the DTO's and Sinaloa federation have representation here in El Paso. They don't, there are already many gangs in El Paso and they don't mix well with the ones from Juarez so they each stay on their own side. The DTO's from Juarez cross over, sell, and cross back.
