Carteles: Principal amenaza para Texas

Carteles: Principal amenaza para Texas

Seis de los ocho carteles mexicanos operan en Texas, según el Departamento de Seguridad Pública del Estado.

JUAREZ, MEXICO - MARCH 26: Police stand beside a body with a mask on in the street, one of numerous murders over a 24 hour period, on March 26, 2010 in Juarez, Mexico. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano all visited Mexico on March 23 for discussions centered on Mexico's endemic drug-related violence. The border city of Juarez, Mexico has been racked by violent drug related crime recently and has quickly become one of the most dangerous cities in the world to live. As drug cartels have been fighting over ever lucrative drug corridors along the United States border, the murder rate in Juarez has risen to 173 slayings for every 100,000 residents. President Felipe Calderon's strategy of sending 7000 troops to Juarez has not mitigated the situation. With a population of 1.3 million, 2,600 people died in drug-related violence last year and 500 so far this year, including two Americans recently who worked for the U.S. Consulate and were killed as they returned from a children's party.

Según un estudio realizado por el Departamento de Seguridad Pública de Texas, el crimen organizado de los carteles de la droga mexicanos es la principal amenaza para el Estado y sus residentes.
 
De acuerdo al informe, seis de los principales carteles operan en Texas, los cuales no solamente se dedican al contrabando de sustancias ilícitas, pero también del tráfico de personas, armas y dinero.
 
El problema principal, según el informe, es que éstos ya están en cualquier vecindario y su operación cada vez es más grande debido a la fuerte demanda de la droga en el país.  
 
“El consumo de drogas en Estados Unidos, la circulación, el transporte de drogas dentro del territorio mexicano no es algo de hoy”, dijo Rodolfo Hernández, director del centro de estudios México-Estados Unidos. 
 
El experto dice que la presencia de grupos delictivos en Texas tiene que ser visto sin sorpresas y estar siempre alerta, ya que los carteles podrían estar operando en nuestro propio vecindario. 
 
Desde el 2009, se han registrado 30 asesinatos en Texas relacionados a las actividades delictivas de los carteles, según la información registrada por la agencia estatal en su página de internet.
