Border City Under Attack: Sudden Eruption of Cartel Violence Leaves Cars Burned

The U.S. Consulate in Tijuana has requested all American government employees to shelter in place until further notice after cartel violence erupted in parts of northern Mexico.

The violence began in Ciudad Juarez, a Mexican city on the Rio Grande, just south of El Paso, Texas, with a prison battle between two rival cartels that left eleven people dead — then the chaos spread outside into the streets of the city, according to the Times of San Diego.

By the weekend, the violence moved west, warranting the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana to advise Americans to shelter in place after a sudden eruption of violence.

“The U.S. Consulate General Tijuana is aware of reports of multiple vehicle fires, roadblocks and heavy police activity in Tijuana, Mexicali, Rosarito, Ensenada and Tecate,” the consulate said. “U.S. government employees have been instructed to shelter in place until further notice.”

San Deigo County Vice Chair Nora Vargas warned all “binational residents to be cautious and follow the recommendations from government officials and avoid unnecessary travel to allow authorities to do their work and maintain safety. My thoughts are with those impacted by the incidents.”

Here’s footage of the chaos spreading through Tijuana as cartels duke it out.

The San Diego Union-Tribune noted parts of Tijuana have gone into lockdown.

  • Randie says:

    Joe Biden‘s open border policy along with that scumbag Mayorkas are the reason this is happening. They turned over the border to the drug cartels long ago.

  • Phil Barberg says:

    The DEA offered to clean it up but the (cartel controlled) government declined. Many cops and the Mexican army are on the cartel payroll. The cartels will will raise hell if the gaps in the border are closed since they would lose millions of dollars.

  • Bridget says:

    Keep those borders open though, right Joe?

  • Dorothy says:

    This is all the fault of this Administration. They opened the damn borders and these are the results. I hope they feel good about themselves because they are no good trash.
