The cartels along our southern border are waging war against the USA, even though we don’t hear about it on the news as such. The same gang leader we wrote about in the article TERRORIST WHO TARGETED AMERICANS TAKES OVER CARTEL NEAR LAREDO, TEXAS got into a shootout with military troops, and in this instance, the gang lost six hit men. We have no reports at this time as to the welfare of the military troops other than no casualties were reported.
NUEVO LAREDO, Tamaulipas – Military troops assigned to this border city killed six gunmen from a faction of Los Zetas during fierce gun battles. After the shootout with the gunmen from the Cartel Del Noreste faction of Los Zetas, the military seized.50 caliber rifles, machine guns, tactical equipment, and several allegedly stolen trucks.
The clashes took place over the weekend along one of the highways that connect the border city of Nuevo Laredo with Monterrey. This highway is considered of great importance for international cargo trade between the United States and Mexico. In the first shootout, a patrolling convoy of soldiers came under attack by vehicles filled with cartel hitmen. This encounter set off a fierce gun battle where one cartel gunman died. According to information revealed by Tamaulipas authorities, military officers seized several SUVs left behind by the gunmen after they crashed or rolled over during the battle. Authorities also seized two .50 caliber rifles, several Ak-47 rifles, and other pieces of tactical equipment.
In a second shootout along the same road, another group of cartel gunmen attacked a military convoy. This set off another fierce gun battle where five cartel hitmen died. After that shootout, authorities seized several vehicles, rifles, and pieces of tactical equipment.

The cartel gunmen were part of a faction of the Los Zetas gang, whose leader, Héctor Raúl “El Tory” Luna Luna, has made a name for himself as a ruthless butcher of any opposition that dares raise his head. He is a convicted terrorist and carried out a grenade attack against a 2008 U.S. consulate in Monterrey, Mexico. He only served a couple of years in prison, and then was released under suspicious circumstances by a Mexican federal judge. He’s a violent, vicious man, and has been known on numerous occasions to leave dismembered bodies in ice chests as an example to those who would challenge him.
If the presence and activity of gangs like this are not enough incentive to build a barrier at the border, it’s hard to imagine what it’s going to take to get through to the Democrat representatives that refuse to acknowledge the situation as a real crisis, not a manufactured one. I know we’ve said it over and over again, and we don’t plan to stop until something concrete (no pun intended) blocks the corridors through which the illegals, drugs, and human traffickers are gushing into the country. It truly is an invasion, and we have to get Americans in the positions of influence who can get things under way to wake up and help DO something to secure our borders.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
