n three years, the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) penetrated six states in the center of the country with operational cells or alliances with local groups, thus reaching Morelos, the State of Mexico, Mexico City and later to Puebla, Hidalgo and Querétaro.
In 2010, the criminal organization headed by the Michoacan capo Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes, El Mencho, was born and five years later, in 2015, it left Jalisco for the first time with the aim of expanding throughout the country to control drug trafficking, kidnapping and extortion. , among other crimes, but as of 2017 it sought to take control of the center of the Republic.
According to federal reports to which EL UNIVERSAL had access, the CJNG recruits young people from different states and sends them to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, and then upload them to the mountains, where they receive training from former Colombian military personnel and former members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces. of Colombia (FARC) , to carry out very specific operations, such as assassinations or the taking of territories that they seek to control, entrusted by their bosses.
Its growth in the downtown area facilitated its entry into the country's capital, with the dispatch of small cells previously trained in Puerto Vallarta, from where many of the operations of the CJNG are coordinated, which is considered one of the most violent criminal organizations. from Mexico.
In order to take possession of Mexico City, El Mencho has sent between five and six cells in the last year, which joined forces with the Tepito Anti-Union Force, to settle in the Gustavo A. Madero, Cuauhtémoc, Tlalpan, Xochimilco, Milpa Alta, Tláhuac, Benito Juárez, Miguel Hidalgo and Cuajimalpa.
“In Mexico City they don't have an antagonistic group. It is not like in other states, where for the Jalisco Cartel to enter it has to confront itself, but here what prevents them from entering as the authority itself has been, "commented a federal command who requested anonymity.
In the State of Mexico, in the last two years the CJNG has strengthened its presence in the municipalities adjacent to Mexico City, such as Nezahualcóyotl, Ecatepec, Naucalpan, Tlalnepantla, Tultitlán, Valle de Chalco, Tecámac, Texcoco and Zumpango , which have a high population density.
The authorities identify Omar Ramsés, El Calaca, as the leader of said group in that area of the state, where he maintains a dispute with La Familia Michoacana, led by Johnny Olascoaga Hurtado, El Pez, mainly in Zumpango and Nezahualcóyotl.
Last June, the Secretary of National Defense, Luis Cresencio Sandoval, revealed that four criminal groups operate in the State of Mexico: CJNG, La Familia Michoacana, Los Caballeros Templarios and Guerreros Unidos.
After the weakening of the Beltrán Leyva Cartel and its cells, Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes's group took the opportunity to enter Morelos, where he currently faces Los Rojos, La Familia Michoacana, Los Tlahuicas and Los Mayas.
According to the State Security Commission, the CJNG, in alliance with Los Colombianos, operates in Cuernavaca, Jiutepec, Temixco, Emiliano Zapata, Xochitepec, Miacatlán, Tetecala, Mazatepec, Puente de Ixtla and Amacuzac, where they commit homicides, kidnappings, extortion and carry out the drug sale.
His rivals from La Familia Michoacana, in conjunction with Los Mayas, control the sale of drugs, extortion and homicide in Miacatlán, Coatlán del Río, Coatetelco, Tetecala, Xoxocotla, Mazatepec, Zacatepec, Amacuzac, Jojutla, Puente de Ixtla, Tlaquiltenango, Tlaltizapán , Emiliano Zapata, Cuernavaca, Jiutepec and Yautepec.
According to federal authorities, in Hidalgo the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel fights with Los Zetas Vieja Escuela to control fuel theft, as well as the sale of drugs through groups of local drug dealers in the municipalities of Pachuca, Tula and Tepeji.
Through the Agave Azul operation, the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) of the Ministry of Finance blocked 17 bank accounts linked to the CJNG located in the state of Hidalgo.
The government of Puebla reported that the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel's operation in the state is recent, compared to Los Zetas and cells of the Beltrán Leyva, which have a solid presence.
However, the authorities point out that the Jalisco criminal organization maintains some groups in the Puebla municipalities of Palmar de Bravo, Cañada Morelos, the city of Puebla, San Andrés Cholula and San Mar-tín Texmelucan.
The state governor, Miguel Barbosa, affirmed that "Puebla capital represents one of the priority objectives of the CJNG in the scenario of expansion and territorial control in the Mexican Republic, given the attractiveness of economic profits generated by the illicit extraction of fuel."
In June of last year, the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel announced its arrival in Querétaro and since then it has spread to the municipalities of Corregidora, Pedro Escobedo, El Marqués, San Juan del Río and Querétaro, putting aside cells that were previously at service of the Knights Templar, according to federal authorities.

Good Morning, Steve! *At least forgive me for assuming it’s AM, where you are at..*
For a veteran border reporter, and very close follower of “the drug war” in MX*, would you possibly agree with (or be now open to) the following idea I’ve had...
For years now, I always thought the infamous narco maps were important at informing the world of how much territory is literally conquered and currently ran by the cartels...
..but, at what point do we decide that the graphics themselves become counterproductive? And is it maybe time now,
to finally evaluate the pros vs cons, so the people can actually have a chance at removing the cartel’s powers of influence?
From a cartel recruiting perspective, it is sheer propaganda.. What better way for CJNG to appeal to the disenfranchised (especially youth), then to have a map of the country appear in their favor??
Especially the youth, criminals, and overall disenchanted from Jalisco alone!
Its almost as if the MX media in the last 5 years have inadvertently helped with the expansion of the “biggest cartel ever to hit Mexico”... and what kind of message does it send the people, every 3-6 months being constantly reminded that the cartel(s) in power
are not only holding ground, but successfully and literally taking over the entire country?
In Italy, these maps of criminal groups control have become rare because I honestly believe the journalists have come to the same conclusion..
These maps “of influence” become the mafia’s greatest tool of propaganda!
That being said, even back in 2008-2012, when the narco maps were showing the expansion of the Zetas and CDS, it literally was showing the country split by two of the most popular cartels at the time.
Well I couldn’t have been the only one who noticed the following similarity as well! *Sarcasm aside, it was an old great friend of mine (born and raised in MX) who pointed this out to me back in 2012.. See below and compare with the cartel map above!
Ultimately, it’s the news in any country that inadvertently empowers any group (domestic terrorists, crime, political), by not just visually mapping their areas of influence, but always empowering their names, conditioning them into the minds of the viewers!
My biggest gripe about the US media is how they seem to spend so much time repeating and emphasizing on the name(s) of murderers/spree-killers, essentially giving the scumbag what they want...
But I do see the similarities ofc now all over the world...
It matters not how a man dies, but how he lives.

In the video they (in my opinion) deface the Mexican flag with the colours of the Mexican flag with their CJNG in the red,white and green on their vests signifying they represent Mexico (albeit an illegal entity)and seem to be proud of it too!
