Texas Governor Greg Abbott is calling for Mexican cartels to be dismantled, calling them terrorist organizations that need to be destroyed once and for all.
"Abbott designated specific Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations and ordered the Department of Public Safety to begin dismantling their infrastructure," reported Breitbart.
"The move comes as record levels of the deadly drug fentanyl are being pushed across the border," reported Breitbart.
"Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it," Governor Abbott said during a border security round table.
"Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets," Abbott said.
"The governor identified the Sinaloa and Jalisco New Generation Cartels (CJNG) as terrorist organizations. He requested President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris create federal terrorist designations for these cartels and others producing and distributing fentanyl," according to Breitbart.
