The alleged gunman in a Border Patrol agent's murder is expected to be hit with additional charges tying him to a series of armed robberies and car jackings at fishing spots in Cameron County over the last six weeks believed to be tied to the Gulf Cartel, sources told FoxNews.com.
Who is the gulf cartel, one may wonder?
The Gulf cartel is based in Matamoros, Tamaulipas state, and smuggles cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine into the US. The cartel is known for its violence and intimidation. Aside from earning money from narcotics sales, the Gulf cartel also collects “taxes” from dealers and local businesses in exchange for protection. They are also reportedly expanding their business into kidnapping for ransom.So you have a drug cartel pushing north into Texas robbing and shooting people from what it looks like.
The situation in Texas is clearly very bad.
