The Northeast Cartel , the former Zetas, have control over Nuevo Laredo, where much of the land trade between Mexico and the United States crosses.

This group shows ‘La Tropa del Infierno’, which has generated confrontations with elite groups of the Tamaulipas Police and against members of the Mexican Army.
