On Friday, Pinal County, Arizona, Sheriff Paul Babeu released part of the memo he received from the Department of Homeland Security. The memo warns about assassins crossing the border from the narco state of Mexico and killing anybody in the United States who interferes with the trafficking of drugs by the cartels.
“The competing cartels are actually working in concert together to protect drug loads in America,” Babeu told KSAZ Fox 10. The rival drug cartels held a meeting at Rocky Point, also known as Puerto Penasco, in Pinal County earlier this year, according to the Department of Homeland Security memo. Sheriff Babeu said Rocky Point is a dangerous place to visit.
Babeu confirmed that the memo came from Janet Napolitano’s office. Babeu said “this information came from Janet Napolitano’s office. She knows exactly what the citizens of Arizona are faced with, yet she continues to publicly state how much safer we all are.”
The DGS memo informed several local law enforcement agencies that assassins from the Mexican drug cartels were “being sent to take out bandits in Vekol Valley.” Vekol Valley is in a remote part of western Pinal County. Pinal County Deputy Louie Puroll was shot in the area by drug smugglers on April 30. The DHS memo cites a “credible confidential source.”

According to the source, during the meeting at Rocky Point it allegedly had been decided “that the cartel would send a group of fifteen, very well-equipped and armed sicarios [killers] complete with bulletproof vests, into the Vekol Valley… [The cartel] will then send groups of simulated backpackers carrying empty boxes covered with burlap into the Vekol Valley to draw out the bandits…. Once the bandits have been identified, the sicarios will take out the bandits.”
“This particular information proved to be inaccurate,” Matthew Chandler, a spokesman for Homeland Security, said after Sheriff Babeu released the information. “At this time, DHS does not have any specific, credible information on intra-cartel violence taking place in Arizona. Over the past 20 months, this administration has dedicated unprecedented manpower, technology and infrastructure to the Southwest border.”
In September, Napolitano said an unprecedented amount of manpower and technology has largely secured the Southwest border and clears the way for Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform, according to the San Antonio Express-News. She said the border “is as secure as it has ever been,” and Congress should now pass and implement meaningful immigration reform.
“With the Obama administration’s refusal to secure our border, and their opposition to Arizona’s new immigration law, it has become painfully obvious that this president has made a conscious decision to abandon the American Southwest… the rest of the country can’t be far behind,” Dave Gibson wrote for the Examiner in June.
Mexican drug cartels now distribute illegal drugs across the United States in cooperation with criminal gangs such as MS-13, the Mexican Mafia, the Latin Kings, the 18th St. Gang, the Bloods, and Crips.
