Watch: Fierce Gun Battle Erupts Between Mexican Troops And Cartel Gunmen Near Texas Border

Laredo Morning Times, a daily newspaper based in Texas, said a series of gun battles erupted earlier this week in west Nuevo Laredo, a city that resides across from Laredo, Texas, and ended near a Wal-Mart shopping center in the Sister City by Avenida Reforma and Bulevar Emiliano Zapata.

According to Breitbart News, the violence began Tuesday morning when Mexican military forces conducted a series of raids aimed at capturing the leadership of the Los Zetas faction called Cartel Del Noreste. Cartel gunmen immediately responded, setting off numerous gun battles across the region in the neighborhoods called Nueva Era, Voluntad y Trabajo, and La Fe, which some of these areas are less than one mile away from Texas.

The shootouts caused the entire city to shut down. At the same time, citizen journalists picked up their smartphones armed with a camera of truth and shared their experince on social media of the out-of-control violence.

Mexican authorities have not issued an official statement as to what happened, however, what you are about to see might be shocking.

The shootouts came two days after a group of cartel assassins fatally shot Edgar Humberto Vega Avalos, Nuevo Laredo’s prison director. Avalos was traveling in his American-made truck on Cerro del Cubilete Street in Colonia Enrique González when assassins opened fire on the vehicle he was in Saturday night, according to the Tamaulipas attorney general’s office.

Here is the alleged crime scene where Avalos was executed.

On Tuesday, heavy automatic gunfire was heard at the AutoZone/Walmart shopping complex located roughly 1.30 miles away from Texas.

A citizen journalist risked his life to capture this incredible footage.

The next video shows civilians taking cover outside of a food stand while automatic gunfire was heard a few blocks over.

As authorities had difficulties containing the shootout, motorists were trapped in the crossfire.

Some of the alleged assassins traveling in Ford trucks.

Security cameras inside a Walmart located about 1.30 miles from the Texas border, show the moment when Mexican special forces confronted Mexican cartel members.

More citizens caught in heavy automatic crossfire.

The U.S. Department of State considers Tamaulipas a “Level 4: Do Not Travel” state due to crime. Authorities said that violent offenses — murder, armed robbery, carjacking, kidnapping, extortion and sexual assault — is common.

Gang activity and gun battles are widespread, according to Mexico’s travel warning.

“Armed criminal groups target public and private passenger buses traveling through Tamaulipas, often taking passengers hostage and demanding ransom payments. Local law enforcement has limited capability to respond to violence in many parts of the state,” the warning states.

As for the Mexican President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador, well, he intends to create a new border-police force to contain the out of control cartel violence in the country, his incoming chief of public security Alfonso Durazo, told Bloomberg in an interview Monday.

The outgoing Mexican President, Enrique Peña Nieto, will transfer power to Obrador on December 1st. Peña Nieto leaves behind a country suffering from record high murders — some of the worst in the world.

Bloomberg notes that Obrador will meet with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday, as both will likely discuss the events that unfolded in Nuevo Laredo.

In another interview with The Associated Press, Durazo was optimistic about the reforms, which he called a “Mexican recipe for peace.” Still, Mexico’s record violence and homicides produced by drug cartels will not be resolved in the near term. The peak of violence has yet to come as the Mexico–United States border braces for more violence.

Build that wall, Mr. President!

    Lets send Palosi, Waters, and Feinstein into Mexico and let them talk nice to the Cartell. Maybe these DEMOCRATIC women(?) can BS the cartels into stopping their shooting, drug smuggling, human traffic, murder, robbery, rape, intimidation, mutilation, and God only knows what else. Either that or maybe these women won’t come back since they love the Criminals so much. How close do you think they would get to these criminals but subject us to lawlessness.

    Is there some way We The People could start our own rallies and fundraisers to help pay for the very much needed wall? We have raised millions for other needed things like charities, etc. So why can’t we do the same for the wall? Please, we desperately need this especially since one of our cities borders on Mexica’s sister city. How long do you think it will be before what happened on the Mexican Laredo side becomes the same situation on our side? How long? We need protection for our citizens NOW not when it breaks out in our cities. We need our military here in our country. I am open for suggestions on how to achieve this. It is time for We The People to act since Congress takes forever to make these important decisions and come up with the needed funds to make this wall happen. Mexico is not going to pay for it and it is our country we need to protect so lets get on with it. “Go Fund Me” account anyone?
