President Obama and his useless administration insist that the drug violence in Mexico is not spilling over the border into America.
Don't buy the political BS from Washington, D.C.
In fact, Jack Riley, the special agent in charge of the DEA's field office in Chicago, IL, says that the local street gangs are proxies for the Mexican drug cartels in the battle for turf as reported by Armen Keteyian for CBS News:
Riley says Mexican cartels have a significant influence in Chicago's gang violence problem. "Let's take the gloves off on that," he said. "We know that the majority of the drugs here in Chicago, cartels are responsible for. We know that the majority of the murders are gang related. So it is very clear to see the connection and the role." As it stands now, at least three major Mexican cartels are battling over control of billions of dollars of marijuana, cocaine and -- increasingly -- heroin in this city.
