It has nothing to do with El Zorro. Bu the truth is that the criminal organization Los Zetas uses the Z in their uniforms and currently control the routes, the gangs  and the human smuggling “business” in southeastern Mexico and Tamaulipas border with the United States, and have done so for at least ten years.

Osiel Cardenas Guillen, then head of the Gulf cartel and who recruited elite military in order to start the criminal organization Los Zetas, decided to expand its drug trafficking activities to the smuggling of humans and goods, according to reports from the Attorney ( prosecution) General of the Republic (PGR).

With the help of armed gangs recruited over at least seven states, Los Zetas control the organizations of human traffickers moving illegal migrants. The immigrants usually pay between 3,000 and $ 5,000 to reach the United States. Many of them are extorted or killed, as in the case of the 72 immigrants slaughtered on a farm in Tamaulipas, last week. According to the National Human Rights Commission of Mexico, some 20,000 migrants (primarily Central American) are abducted each year by the mafias.

The following photo is from the U.S. Border Fire Report, reported to be depictions of the american combat weapons and ammo found near the Mexican and Arizona border. The authorities also captured support vehicles, armored vests, explosive devices and other supplies bought in the U.S.

The domain of Los Zetas on the illegal immigrants “market” is spreading throughout the country, from the South (Quintana Roo, Yucatan, Tabasco, Chiapas and Oaxaca) and center (Veracruz) to the northern border (Tamaulipas) the same route followed by many drug shipments. According to official documents, along this route, the mafia would have the help of corrupted immigration agents and federal police, and with the complicity of some provincial authorities.
