A man believed to be the leader of the Gulf drug cartel, which controls some of the most valuable and violently contested smuggling routes along the U.S. border, was arrested by Mexican marines and presented to the public Thursday.
She said the Gulf Cartel was a vertically structured organization dependent on its top leaders, several of whom have been arrested in recent months.
"It consolidates this new configuration of organized crime in Mexico," Ms. Correa-Cabrera said. "This disintegration of the Gulf Cartel will be impacting in a very serious way the levels of violence in Tamaulipas and probably in the whole country."
