Pérez, who studied the illegal-arms trade at University College London before joining Mexico’s government, doesn’t deny that other factors, including the failed War on Drugs and the notorious corruption of the Mexican police, have contributed to the crisis. Still, “it would be impossible to imagine this scenario without American guns,” he says.

Juarez Cartel Trains Beautiful Women as Sicarios (hired assassins)

“The armed wing of the Juarez drug cartel (La Linea), which operates on the border of Ciudad Juarez and El Paso is recruiting and training dozens of young, pretty women as sicarios (hired assassins), said a captured sicario hired by the criminal organization.

“They are beautiful teenagers, to deceive the enemy even more,” said the suspected member of the organization of La Linea, Rogelio Amaya, to an investigative team of the federal Public Security Secretariat (SSP).

This criminal organization has between 20 and 30 women, mostly “pretty” between 18 to 30 years old, trained to kill, he said.
