The ultra-violent street gang MS-13 has been fingered by the U.S. Treasury Department as a transnational criminal organization, but LIGNET believes that future law enforcement victories gained by freezing the group’s assets could be offset by MS-13's new “joint venture” with a deadly Mexican drug cartel. The Los Zetas cartel has reportedly engaged in the training of MS-13 gunmen in Mexico and there are signs of joint criminal activity between the cartel and MS-13 in Guatemala that could potentially spread beyond Central America into America’s border region.
