THE BORDER REPORT

Here’s a story I did on the situation in Tubutama for the Nogales International.

By now, the entire border world, from Nogales, Sonora, cops to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to the radio stations to me, now know that a convoy of some 30 vehicles pulled into Nogales late Wednesday night. Everybody seems to know this except the Calderón and Padrés Administrations, apparently.

According to a source at the FBI, nobody’s sure whether the convoy is there to back the Sinaloans who got stomped trying to take out Gilo in the hills or whether these are Gilo’s reinforcements.

I anticipate they are reinforcing the Sinaloa Cartel and I’ll tell you why.

The Mexican government and the Sonoran State Police have chosen to stay out of the fight in the hills; yet we know for a fact that Gilo, Hector Beltrán Leyva’s man, has clashed with the Army. According to a Border Patrol intel report, the Army clashed with Gilo on June 12 – and I think we can safely presume they lost that battle since Gilo is still there a month later.

It has been said in the past, by people smarter than I, that Calderón is focusing his efforts on Sinaloa’s rivals, including Beltrán Leyva, Barbie, and the Zetas. Depending on whom you choose to believe, the Mexican government is doing so either to A) finish off the smaller cartels to bring peace to the country or B) because they are in the pay of the Sinaloa Federation.

What’s going on in Nogales right now is a great example of this. The Army and the state police have left the convoy alone and they’ve been there some 36 hours now.

This suggests the Calderón Administration is letting the Sinaloans finish the job for them. Or try to, anyway. From what people are saying, the convoy has been driving around Nogales all morning. In the July 1 battle, the Sinaloans were backed up by the locals, Sinaloa loyals including Felix the Ice Cream Man, Raúl Sabori and Nini Beltrán but it’s been said on this website that the outsiders took the lead on that attack and that’s why they failed so badly. Here’s what one Nogales resident said: “Good to know the locals can hold their own against those pushy outsiders!”

To be fair, the road up to Tubutama can be tricky to find …(here’s a hint, Tubutama is to the west).

Someone buy them boys a map.

    http://www.eluniversal.com.mx/notas/425477.html

    three years ago, in cananea? this guys were killed, suposely by the cops, but the thuth is that they were killed by people of Sinaloa (chapos). since then, the government of Sonora (and the Federal too) is an ally of the cartel de sinaloa. “en la guerra y el amor todo se vale”, so i think is better to let them finish the dirty job.

Y cuando llegue el rodeo, ther will be lots of room to sit around and lagartaer (lay around like alligators and chat). You will see it will be a better America. Caramba I can hardly wait, chihuahua I may even go back to Tucson and open a business on 12th!

  16. This website is straying more and more from reality. As is its creator.

    “The road to Tubutama is hard to find,” Michel writes.

    No, it definitely isn’t. It begins just to the right of the big clock tower in downtown Magdalena.

    Michel also told us all that he’d be spending the 4th of July up in Tubutama. Obviously, he didn’t.

    And because he didn’t, I’m reading such nonsense as, “It has been said in the past, by people smarter than I, that Calderón is focusing his efforts on Sinaloa’s rivals, including Beltrán Leyva, Barbie, and the Zetas. Depending on whom you choose to believe, the Mexican government is doing so either to A) finish off the smaller cartels to bring peace to the country or B) because they are in the pay of the Sinaloa Federation.”

    Can I get a refund on the $100 donation I recently send you via Pay Pay, Michel?

    [Reply]

    Michel Reply:

    Hi, Jack,

    I was referring to the road from Nogales; it’s mostly non-maintained and tricky to find.
    As for the rest, I let my work stand on its own merit.
    Finally, of course. I just sent $100 back to you via PayPal.

    Take care.

    [Reply]

    Jack Reply:

    No, Michel, the mountain road through to Saric is not “tricky” to find.

    It’s clearly marked with a big sign to “Saric” off to the right on Mexico’s Route 15 – only about 12 miles south of the border.

    But you’re right: that drive is a very difficult and dangerous one. One that any sensible person who values staying alive would avoid.

    And, yes, I just got an email from Pay Pal to tell me that you refunded my $100.

    As for the “rest,” I’ve been one of your biggest admirers, having referred scores of people to your site.

    I’m fully confident that your site will continue to be one of the most insightful, foot-on-the-ground sites around.

    You are one hell of a good writer!

    if you are on the toll road(dirt) between Sasabe and Tubutuma and try cutting over to Saric it is a real puzzle. the players and cops on this site may get off the track but they end up letting lots of info slip out…it’s the genius of the comment section.

    I didn’t call you a name, I said you were freaking me out.

    I was wondering the same thing about you though, do I agree with what you say or some of your stances, no, but there was no reason for you bash the guy. I could go on and on about what great things he writes or that he stretches dollars further than anyone to get people like you who are interested and concerned about the border (me not so much anymore, I’m retired).

    For him to go down there and report this story would have been a suicide mission, at the very least they would have taken his truck, his gear, money, etc. And at worst…well, we all know what that is.

    3 things you should never tell a man:

    1) they are worthless
    2) their dreams are stupid, never crush a man’s dreams
    3) how to do their job, when you’ve never walked a block in their shoes

    I’ve said my peace.

  20. My question is assuming these convoys are Sinaloan backup, are the Beltranes able/willing to send people to back up Gilo and his group? I’m thinking it will be necessary to even hold that small area they control, or are in possession of.

    [Reply]

  21. Beltranes people were done the moment they brought the Zetas, I am not cheering for anybody, but Sonora is a mess. Beltrans can bring a 1000 and they won’t win in the end because they are too violent. You can’t rule by fear, because when theres nothing left to loose, people have everything to gain.

    The Idea of cutting of peoples heads at least in recent history comes from Mexicans watching CNN. In order to get the US to leave Iraq, the “insurgents” were cutting off peoples heads on CNN and scaring the crap out of Americans. That is why you have some groups of assasins running around calling themselves Talivanes not because they are associated with osama but because they are using similar fear tactics.

    I remember back after 9-11 I went to ensenada because americans were not traveling and I decided to take advantages of the cheap rates. When I was down their some local asked me about the attacks and why americans were scared to travel, long story short… He made a comment “Those guys on the planes had Balls.” in reference to the highjackers. My first instinct was to hit him but I didnt. I guess he just sees the world through diferent eyes.

  24. Perhaps we need a return to civility in some of the above posts. This is the creed I live by:

    The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.

  30. Just in case anyone was wondering about Michel’s safety while working in Mexico:

    Journalist killed in Mexico; 6th this year
    (AP) – 6 days ago

    MORELIA, Mexico — A reporter has been killed in a western Mexican town plagued by drug gang violence — the sixth journalist reported slain in the country this year.
    The Michoacan state Attorney General’s Office says Hugo Olivera’s body was found in his pickup truck in Apatzingan.
    Olivera reported for La Voz de Michoacan, a main newspaper in the state that is a stronghold of La Familia cartel. He was also the editor of the newspaper El Dia de Michoacan.
    Police had no suspects in Olivera’s killing Tuesday.
    The National Human Rights Commission says more than 60 journalists have been killed in Mexico since 2000. Press freedom groups say Mexico is one of the world’s deadliest countries for journalists.

    the guachos are telling the reporters to move out of that area, but the reporters keep coming back where the soldiers are doing their job, then the military men start using bad words towards the reporters, after the reporters get pushed and shaken and their equipment damaged, one of the soldiers tell the reporters “we are kindly asking you to leave this area and stop filming”, at one moment, one of the reporters tells to one of the monkeys “you think you have big balls” and the monkey comes back to the reporter and replies, “what did you just say?”, and the reporter doesn’t says anything.

  42. My take on the Mexican ‘situation’ lately,
    is rapidly gaining comparison to ‘WW2 war propanganda’.

    All sides, releasing information as suits, each side’s purpose.

    Even ‘Twitter’ which rely on daily, to provide, information where balaceras in Mexico are currently breaking out, is subject to the same skepticism.

    Perhaps in this kind of socio/economic situation it boils down to who you know and what they know…and how much you trust their information.

  44. Seems like both the CPS and police/Navy/marines whatever are putting pressure on La Barbie, I’d like to know more about the now fragmented Beltran Leyva organization and it’s two groups. I’ve read rumors that El H cut a deal with CDS for support to eliminate Barbie, and in exchange goes back to being a subsidiary of Sinaloa. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but Barbie seems to be taking hits. I’d love some really good coverage of this, this site is great for news, and other online blogs, but this kind of stuff should be covered a lot more extensively then just a documentation of the ‘tit for tat’ battles.

  46. I’ve read on here the homosexual rumors and innuendo with Arturo Beltran and La Barbie, which is a little bit unbelievable, but I wonder how he worked his way into that position. He played football, which is funny, and most people I know who were involved in the that life, did not play HS sports, but dude was wholesaling marijuana enough to warrant local police attention, and I’m guessing his contacts were connected with Sinaloa, through the Beltran-Leyva’s, and it went from there. But, it’s a long road from handling 50-100 pounds of weed, to thousands of kilograms of cocaine, and running the enforcement arm for a cartel.

    obviously you didnt talk to the kids that played SOCCER! im just saying, most of the kids i knew that were involved gravitated towards that sport, but with all the hate going on with Barbie i have to say his run has impressed me because he STILL hasnt been caught, walks away from almost everyone that has wanted to take him out and STILL come out on top, so there is some kind of charisma to his character that has a following of soilders loyal to him. just my opinion here,

    [Reply]

    J Reply:

    It’s impressive in one way that he’s still alive, and I assume still operating, but one at what cost? Did he have something to do with Arturo getting killed? He’s flip flopped a lot, which leads me to think he’s probably not wanted by a lot of people, which is why he wants his own thing. And also, at what capacity is he operating? The Beltran Leyva as a whole is thought to be ‘on the ropes’, so imagine what one splintered fractions status is. I guess time will tell, as always.

    Too bad the site won’t be updated, this is def. one of my favorites, and the comments and stories are really detailed and knowledgeable unlike much of the information about the subject. I’d like to see a forum on here sometime in the future too, to continue discussions without articles.

  53. CNN) — An explosion in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, killed at least three people Thursday night, including two police officers and a paramedic, authorities said.

    Up to 20 people were wounded in the blast, reports said.

    Federal police spokesman Ramon Salinas said the blast in the Mexican border city was caused by either a grenade or a car bomb and took place as authorities were responding to “some sort of emergency.”

    Earlier in the day, police announced the arrest of Jesus Armando Acosta Guerrero, believed to be a leader in the Juarez cartel — one of two drug trafficking organizations operating in the area.

  56. I’m sure you guys could careless, but I’m going to post the status on Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla’s federal case.

    The Notification of Docket Entry dated July, 1, 2010, states as follows:

    “Minute entry before the Honorable RC: as to Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla: Status hearing reset to 9/__/2010 (I didn’t add the exact date, but it’s in late September) at __ : __ PM (sometime in the afternoon). By agreement between the parties (the U.S. Attorney’s office and his defense counsel, which now extends to five (5) defense attorneys), the COMPLEXITY of PRETRIAL PROCEEDINGS AND DISCOVERY, and in the interest of justice time is excluded from 7/1/2010 until 9/__/2010 pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 3161(h)(7)(A)(B).”

    Notice where it states “complexity of pretrial proceedings and discovery,” there is an Agreed Order dated April 21, 2010 pertaining to the discovery produced by the government, which states:

    “All materials provided by the United States may be utilized by defendant and his counsel of record solely in connection with the defense of this case and for no other purpose and in connection with no other proceeding…The materals and their contents shall not be disclosed either directly or indirectly to any person or entity other than defendant, defendant’s counsel, persons employed by defense counsel to assist in the defense, or such persons to whom the Court specifically authorizes disclosure.”

    The order is very precise about the use of the discovery in ZN’s case, basically, not a single item can be copied or disclosed to the public and any copies made by the defense counsel must be returned to the US government.

    I was looking forward to the kind of “overwhelming evidence” the government would provide in the case, but there’s no way anyone would be able to review the government’s discovery if the court does not allow it. This kind of action by judges and the US government deters from the purpose of the Freedom of Information Act and makes it difficult to truly believe that our justice system is fair and neutral.

    Yes, it’s an AGREED ORDER and Zambada-Niebla and his defense counsel signed in agreement, but it’s possible that the only way they would be able to get their hands on any discovery whatsoever was by agreeing to the terms that the government firmly imposed. It’s disappointing to say the least and I hope that things change in the future.

    For the record, from what I’ve read, analyzed and overanalyzed within each docket entry, he’s definitely not cooperating with the government, especially given the fact that he hired three (3) additional defense attorneys to his defense team within the past five (5) months. They are still dealing with discovery issues, so I can only tell if he’s going to enter into a plea agreement until after the discovery has been reviewed. That’s when you know if a case is going to trial or not, when the witness and exhibit lists have been filed on both sides and they are THIS close to picking a jury.

    I hope this case makes it to trial and I hope that it’s a fair trial…I still have a little bit of faith in our trial system.

    On that note, remember to ALWAYS INVOKE YOUR RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT (pursuant to Berghuis v. Thompkins), by that I mean VERBALLY INVOKE THEM – LOUD AND CLEAR. And don’t forget to request for an attorney to be present before or during any kind of interrogation (that’s basically invoking your rights and they (LE) would be violating your constitutional rights by asking questions after you’ve requested counsel).

    It’s beyond empowering to know your rights, so protect them – it’s all you’ve got!

  57. To Valentine’s info.
    I do not know much about the legal process, but perhaps
    the reason full disclosure is closed is because they can not say where

    revealing an embedded source.

  58. Also. If you do a bit of research on the net. You will find that the Miranda has been ruled in a few cases not necessary in the arrest.
    Further. If you live within 100 miles of a US border. The patriot act kicks in and illegal searches by authorities [BP. MCSO. DPS. Park
    Rangers and even USAF MPs] can pretty much do as they please.

    The effect of this is people are afraid to speak up for themselves.

    [Reply]

    Rabbit Reply:

    What in the hell are you talking about? If they plan on using something the guy said against him, the Miranda rights had better been used. Or say goodbye to that evidence. And, as far as search and siezure goes, those rules have been in place for a long time. Things still get thrown out in bad searches all the time. Even near the border. There are a lot of cases that are being chellenged over the constitutionality of “Patriot Act” events taken place domestically. You would have to rewrite all the exhisting law and case law to get past a persons illegal search and seisure rights. The fourth ammendment protects, thank goodness. But maybe Zambada needs to get served. But that isn’t mine or your decision to make.

    [Reply]

    Valentina Reply:

    WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG!

    Pursuant to Miranda v. Arizona 348 U.S. 436 (1966), law enforcement officer have to read you your Miranda Rights, but pursuant to pursuant to Berghuis v. Thompkins – YOU MUST VERBALLY INVOKE YOUR RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT. At that point, law enforcement officers (local police officers, detectives, the FEDs anyone working for a law enforcement agency), are not allowed to ask you questions without your attorney present.

    “Further. If you live within 100 miles of a US border. The patriot act kicks in and illegal searches by authorities [BP. MCSO. DPS. Park Rangers and even USAF MPs] can pretty much do as they please.”

    Again…WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG!

    There is no such thing as a constitutional-free zone. It’s true that Border Patrol and other agents are allowed to search you without having to back up or articulate the reason for searching you with reasonable suspicion, but the search itself is not allowed to be unresonable or entrusive. And in order to enter your home, they will ALWAYS need a SEARCH WARRANT signed by a judge and supperted by an affidavit.

    I don’t know what “get bent” means, all I know is that after the Supreme Court’s opinion in Berghuis v. Thompkins, you have to verbally invoke your rights. In other words, you can’t stay quiet, you have to speak up.

    If I knew anything about being arrested from my own personal experience, I probably wouldn’t even think about applying to law school.

When your miranda rights are read to you, you had better shut up and consult with your attorney. Didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. I hope you do well. But get some field experience. It does help.

    [Reply]

    Valentina Reply:

    I work for a defense attorney. And in every federal case that we’ve worked on we get the Government’s Response to the Standing Discovery Order (usually there are multiple responses), within their response there is an FBI form titled Advice of Rights, which states the Miranda rights in English and Spanish, they also record the exact time you invoke your rights and you have to sign it.

    The FBI and DEA, for the most part, are extremely ethical about procedures and they never mess up a case based on neglecting to read your rights. Whether you understand your rights or not, the burden is on you to smarten up. The same goes for their investigation, they do their job and they do it well, which is why most federal cases don’t go to trial. (For federal agents who frequent the BR: Welcome).

    The law enforcement agencies that mess up something as simple as Miranda rights are the state and local law enforcement agencies, rookie cops, that type of thing. And let’s put it this way, it’s very simple to dismantle a state case. Very simple. Cops are easy to rattle and they are not as sharp, they don’t see the big picture.

    As for the field experience, I’ll leave that up to you, since you seem to be an expert of sorts. Some advice for you, it’s not wise to expose the chip you have on your shoulder and the lashing out does nothing for you.

    [Reply]

    Rabbit Reply:

    If you read my first comment, I said that If his miranda rights were not read, they could not use statements against him. Then I said that things get thrown out of court all the time on ilegal searches. That’s true. I don’t bash you. I like how you are full of passion.

    Last of all. I have been around for a long time. Been taught some real tough lessons about our laws and system. Case law is very conveluted. Judges mis-interprit the law all the time. This why people should hire good defense counsel. If you ever learn how to move around the court system expertly, good for you. Hope you do well.
