Mexican Border Drug War Escalates To New Heights

REYNOSA, Tamaulipas — More than 50 have died in the last month as a result of the raging cartel violence in this border city.

As Breitbart Texas has reported for more than a month, rival factions of the Gulf Cartel are carrying out attacks on each other to take control of lucrative drug trafficking territories and smuggling routes.

A video taken by a citizen journalist in Reynosa revealed the intensity of the clashes between gunmen and Mexican authorities.

During the clashes, cartel members use SUV convoys with code signs such as M-28, M-42, and M-100 painted on  vehicles. In the most recent series of clashes, three gunmen died firefights on the city’s eastern side.
