Los Zetas Drug Trafficking Organization

Los Zetas organization was established in the late

1990s as the enforcement arm of the Gulf Cartel

drug traffcking organization to protect and expand

through and between ports of entry along the

US–Canada border, according to 2010 NDIC

ridors for Canada-bound bulk cash. The topography of

the US-Canada border is conducive to bulk cash smug-

gling because currency interdiction by law enforcement

offcials is often hampered by the border’s length and

rugged terrain.46
