No major media outlets are reporting it, but several hundreds soldiers and marines are en route to Nuevo Laredo, Tamps. (MX) to try and get a grip on a violent few months in our Sister City. Several websites report that Nuevo Laredo, Tamps. (MX) is essentially under martial law as the military moves in and relieves city police officers. Soldiers were seen at police headquarters seizing guns.
It comes as the federal and state government move into a new phase of security efforts in an attempt to turn up the heat on local drug cartels.
More troops are expected to move into the city to beef up security, and it's not just in Nuevo Laredo but the whole state of Tamaulipas.
Last week demonstrators took to the bridges to protest military presence. Many claim those holding signs and chanting "no more military" were paid as much as a $100 a day by cartel members to protest at the bridges.
Drug cartels don't want that information out; therefore, the Mexican media is not reporting it.

How profound AND timely, thanks

The shields are based on my old unit flash from 105 MP.
It no longer exists but the Unit Flash does. It is in the center of this.

baraq goes to El Paso to mock those who are bringing up the fact that the Mexican govt has lost control of their northern states. Big Janet tells us that all of the border is secure, more secure than ever.
Legalize drugs...and this kinda crap would stop.
