Mexican drug cartels have been known to use a variety of different names to refer to themselves, ranging from the powerful and notorious La Familia drug cartel to the smaller and more generic Sinaloa cartel.
In this article, we’ll explore some of the most common names in Mexico’s drug trade and how to distinguish between them.
The following is a guide to some of these different names.
Drug trafficking The most common name for a drug cartel in Mexico is La Famila, or “the Family”.
La Familla is a reference to the family of drug lords that ruled the region for decades before the cartel’s rise to power.
La Famillas cartel was originally created by Mexican army soldiers to secure the lucrative Sinaloan smuggling routes and then to expand their influence.
When La Famillas forces were pushed back by the US-backed FARC rebels in the 1980s, La Famille retreated to Mexico’s northeast and the Sinaloans joined in.
The new La Famillois cartel now controls most of the drug trade in the country, which is estimated to be worth more than $1 billion a year.
The name La Familas means “family” in the local language.
The Sinalolans cartel has grown into one of the world’s most powerful drug cartels.
Sinalos drug cartels is also known as the Mexican Drug Cartel, or MSCC.
The most powerful of the cartel, the Sino-American Drug Cartels is a group of transnational criminal groups that control some of Mexico’s most lucrative drug markets.
The MSCC has been implicated in numerous high-profile drug-related murders.
It is also the largest criminal syndicate in the world.
Other names for drug cartels in Mexico are: El Salvadoran drug cartel; Sinaloquijeros cartel; Oaxaca-based Sinalojas cartel; Tijuana-based Televisa cartel; and La Cucaracha cartel.
The last name for the Sialoas cartel in Sinalia state, Sinalaco, refers to a local dialect that is associated with the Sualano indigenous people who live in the region.
Another name for an organized crime group is Sinalico.
Sino and Sinales cartels have long been linked with the murder of many of the countrys most famous and powerful leaders.
The leader of the Sinals cartel, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was arrested in 2011 and was extradited to the United States in 2018.
His brother, Joaquín Guzman Rios, is still in custody in the United Kingdom.
In 2015, Sialos cartel members abducted Oscar Paz, an iconic Mexican TV personality, in Mexico City.
In 2017, Mexican authorities said they had killed more than 20 drug suspects in the state of Jalisco.
The cartels are also responsible for kidnapping and murder of high-ranking politicians in Mexico and abroad.
The current leader of Sinalco is Joaquin ‘El Chapito’ Guzman.
The US Treasury Department has designated him a Sinalocan for crimes related to the drug war, including money laundering and trafficking weapons.
The cartel’s violence has also resulted in the death of thousands of people.
Other drug trafficking names include La Paz drug cartel (which translates to “The People”), the Guadalajara Cartel (which means “The Good”), and the Santa Fe Cartel.
The Santa Fe cartel is based in the coastal city of Santa Fe in southern Mexico.
The city of Guadalupe, a small town in Guerrero state, is also linked to the Salsoa cartel, which has been linked to more than 150 murders.
Mexican cartels often use the names of local ethnic groups to refer themselves to each other.
For example, the Zetas cartel has a name that is used by the Zeta Indians of the northern state of Oaxacan, the Guajatas of the southeastern state of Tamaulipas and the Oaxecas of Jaliztepec state.
Another popular name for cartels is the Juarez cartel.
Juarez is a word that means “the” in Mexican.
The term Juarez has a long history of being used by Mexican drug dealers to refer their criminal operations.
This is because the term Juárez means “black” in Spanish and is used to refer specifically to drug dealers.
Other Mexican drug gangs, including the Los Zetamas and the Los Caballeros, also use the term.
The Zetamas and Caballero cartels are two of the largest Mexican drug trafficking groups in the Americas.
The Caballers have been responsible for the largest and most brutal drug cartel killings in the US.
In 2014, the cartels killed more people than the Combined Forces Southern Command.
The Cartel also has a large number of soldiers, paramilitary fighters and mercenaries who work for them.
Many of these fighters are linked to Mexican drug groups and are known to have links
