Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico - On Monday, the population in the state of Tamaulipas woke up to social network news that both the Zetas and a faction of the Gulf Cartel have ended their feuding war to control the multi-million dollar border town drug routes into the U.S. Hundreds of flyers were circulated throughout the state of Tamaulipas indicating that violence and unjust murders attributed to the drug cartels will stop.
The flyer showed photos and names of both leaders of the drug cartels, Juan Reyes Mejía González, aka, R1, from Los Rojos/Gulf Cartel and Rogelio González Pizaña, aka, El Kelin, from Los Zetas. The new alliance between Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel will enforce the old school principles of the drug cartels, 1. Respect the territory of control by criminal organization, 2. Don't mess with the population and 3. Respect the families of the drug cartels.
In the flyer, both Los Zetas and the Rojos/Gulf Cartel have agreed to stop the extortion of the population, eliminate quotas to operate businesses, no unjust murders, no kidnappings and those among their criminal organizations who do not follow their policy will be dealt with severely, according to the Zeta/Gulf Cartel alliance.
Los Rojos/Gulf Cartel also operate in the state of Guerrero. On Friday, the federal government announced that the 43 missing Ayotzinapa students were murdered and then their bodies burned to eliminate DNA evidence to identify the bodies, according to confessions by three members of the Guerreros Unidos (GU), a criminal organization in Guerrero.
So far, 74 suspects and 10 others are being sought in connection with the massacre of the students.
Sidronio Casarrubias Salgado, the leader of the GU and Salomón Pineda, aka, "El Molón" have been arrested. Salgado ordered his men to killed the 43 students, according to some of the suspects in custody.
Cocula Mayor César Miguel Peñaloza Santana was also arrested in connection with the missing students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos school in Ayotzinapa.
On Thursday, José Luis Abarca Velázquez, the former Mayor of Iguala was charged with multiple federal counts for murder, kidnapping and organize crime along with his wife, María de los Ángeles Pineda Villa for the September 26-27 murders of six people, including 4 students, 25 injured students and with the disappearance of 43 Ayotzinapa students. Abarca Velázquez and Pineda Villa are facing between 90 to 190 years in prison, if convicted on all counts.
Gildardo López Astudillo, aka, "El Gil" and Felipe Flores Velázquez, Iguala's Secretary of Public Safety are being sought on federal warrants in connection with the Ayotzinapa student massacre.
The alliance of both criminal organizations, Los Zetas and Gulf Cartel come in the wake when thousands of Mexican students and population have staged protests seeking justice for the 43 Ayotzinapa missing students from Guerrero. The Mexican population has begun a nationwide revolution against the drug cartels and Mexican corrupt state governments, including federal government corruption for the lack of justice for more than 90,000 unsolved homicides by Mexico's warring drug cartels and corrupt local, state and federal police. More than 25,000 Mexican nationals have been reported missing in Mexico. More than 30,000 people have been murdered, since Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto took office.
The National Human Rights Commission in Mexico reported that 20,000 undocumented immigrants from South and Central America are kidnapped and held for ransom by criminal organizations in Mexico every year. In last seven years, more than 70,000 undocumented immigrants from South and Central American have disappeared while traveling through Mexico on their way to the U.S.
Over the weekend, Nieto was implicated of receiving a $7 million dollar home from a wealthy business owner who profited from lucrative state contracts when Nieto was Governor. The same business owner, who owns another company recently won a multi-billion dollar federal contract to built a high speed bullet train with China. But on Friday, when the scandal broke about Nieto's $7M home from the business owner, the federal contract was cancelled by Nieto's administration forcing China to seek compensation for its loss of investment.
