Trump Considers Classifying Drug Cartels Foreign Terrorist Organizations

President Trump told Breitbart News Monday that he is “strongly considering” classifying the Mexican cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs). Trump cited ongoing violence and drug trafficking in Mexico as his reasoning

This sentiment has been echoed by law enforcement officials including Chris Farrell, who formerly served as an army counterintelligence officer and is currently Director of Investigations at Judicial Watch.

Farrell appeared in the documentary NotinVeinUSA.com, a film produced by Sara Carter’s non-profit The Dark Wire Investigation Foundation and Full Story Foundation. Farrell said his solution is to declare the cartels as FTOs.

“When they’re declared what they are, terrorist organizations, you give the Mexican government a choice: they can cooperate and get on board, and help us to fight them as what they are (terrorist organizations) or we could do it ourselves.” said Farrell.

Thus, the FTO designation would dramatically change law enforcements abilities to stop the cartels in their tracks, said Farrell.
