MEXICO CITY (19/ABR/2012.) – In recent months the New Generation Jalisco Cartel (CJNG) has become a real force to be sheltered by the organization of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, in an alliance to deal more forcefully to Los Zetas.

According to security consultant Strategic Forecasting (Stratfor) the criminal group has grown rapidly in recent months, the degree to operate, in seven states and in order to further expand.

In its quarterly report on the movements of drug cartels in Mexico, the agency reveals that even in the middle of 2011 and now affiliated with the Sinaloa cartel, the CJNG worked only in Guadalajara and its surroundings. But shortly after, “his area of ​​operation and included Veracruz, Guerrero, Morelos, Colima, Guanajuato and Michoacan.”
