Abbott calls for Biden to investigate Mexican Drug Cartels as a Terrorist Organization

In a new letter addressed to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, Texas Governor Greg Abbott calls for  “immediate action to combat the dangerous and deadly Mexican drug cartels” that “bring terror into our communities.”

“They smuggle narcotics and weapons into the United States to fund their illegal enterprises,” Abbott writes. “They force women and children into human and sex trafficking—enriching themselves on the misery and enslavement of immigrants. They murder innocent people, including women and children.”

“These Mexican drug cartels are foreign terrorist organizations, and it is time for the federal government to designate them as such,” he adds.

Abbott tweeted Friday:

Mexican drug cartels issue colorful wristbands to identify migrants who’ve paid them to cross the Rio Grande, how many times they have tried to cross, and who is eligible to cross again if they’ve been sent back.

Biden must end this human trafficking.
