“Murder, kidnapping, money laundering, and drug trafficking are the four corners of this organization's foundation,” U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman said in a previous statement. “For years, their violence, ruthlessness, and complete disregard for human life and the rule of law have greatly impacted the citizens of the Republic of Mexico and the United States. They must be held accountable for their criminal actions.”
