Lara Logan on Disturbing News of Drug Cartels in US Working with China

Lara Logan briefs Brannon Howse on her own on-the-ground reporting on the US Southern Border amid a surge of Chinese illegal migrants coming across. She says the Chinese government has to be behind this, because they control their own border and their own people extremely thoroughly.

Lara says the Chinese Triads have been working with and intermarrying with the Mexican drug cartels for decades. They have taught them how to make fentanyl and oxycodone.

Lara says that the Mexican drug cartels have become the most powerful transnational criminal organizations in the world. They control over 90% of the trade in illegal drugs and every street gang in every country on the planet. They have unlimited money and can arm themselves with whatever weapons they want and they now also receive elite training.


She says that the Sinaloa Cartel members lived in the community and there were certain lines that weren’t crossed, similar to how the Cosa Nostra operated. In contrast, the new kid on the block, the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) is extremely violent and cruel.

“Everyone in power in the United States knows what I know – and more – and yet, this administration opened the Southern Border to these cartels and to their allies in China and other countries. And then, when you look at the fact that we have weakened our own defenses and there are longstanding relationships between the cartels and the Chinese; we know from the DEA that the cartels have proliferated and have put people all across this country; we see signs of unrestricted warfare and unconventional warfare rising all across this country and we know that our military is posting videos of soldiers wearing high heels, talking about ‘diversity’ – I don’t have any words for the intentional weakening of our defenses.”
