“Sol Prendido” for Borderland Beat

Video translation is as follows:

A new cartel has emerged in the state of Sonora with the purpose of combating the Los Chapitos faction of the Sinaloa Cartel in that entity. This was announced by Robert J. Bunker, an expert in security issues, to the Daily News, pointing out that it is the fragmentation of an organization that was previously an ally of Los Chapitos. 

The New Independent Cartel of Sonora emerged after the alliance of Los Salazar, Los Paredes, and Los Cazadores, criminal groups that in the past worked for Los Chapitos. For the security expert, the appearance of this new criminal organization suggests that the dominion of the Sinaloa Cartel is decreasing. In his opinion, what we are witnessing is the gradual fragmentation of the Los Chapitos faction from the Sinaloa Cartel. 

According to Búnker, the main beneficiaries of this fragmentation are the Jalisco New Generation Cartel and the Caborca ​​Cartel. The first being the only organization that can rival the Sinaloa Cartel in terms of size and power. With the two groups exalted in a bloody war throughout Mexico. 

He explained that given the global competition between the Sinaloa Cartel and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, anything that could weaken the Sinaloa Cartel will be seen as beneficial to the organization led by El Mencho. This suggests that the 4-letter cartel has most likely already surrounded the new Independent Cartel of Sonora and is likely to be allied with it or at least try to provide it with some support. 

Following the logic of the enemy of my enemy is my friend. If the Caborca ​​Cartel, a rival of the Sinaloa Cartel in Sonora, leaves, it is very likely that it will also seek an alliance with both criminal organizations to confront Los Chapitos. A month ago this news medium interviewed someone identified as El Cazador 20, leader of Los Cazadores who announced the separation and the start of the war with Los Chapitos. In the interview he narrated the circumstances that led to the breakup.
