Bill Barr Says the Cartels Are 'in Charge' in Mexico

Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr argues that the cartels are running Mexico, calling on officials to act following the recent kidnapping of four Americans.

Barr shared the remarks in an interview on "The Story" on Fox News.

"This problem has been getting ever more serious for almost 20 years now, and it's time to face up to the truth and the truth is that these are extremely powerful groups that effectively control broad areas of Mexico. The government doesn't control them, the Mexican government doesn't," Barr said.

"The cartels are in charge and second, the Mexican government allows them to operate from these safe havens and pump poisonous drugs up into the United States that are doing massive damage to our people and our economy, and it's not going to stop unless we destroy these organizations," he added.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) also spoke out against Democrats for allowing cartels to run the nation and mistreat Americans.

"They have killed Americans and brought ceaseless amounts of fentanyl into our country," Cruz wrote. "We need to bankrupt them and bring the cartels to justice."

"President Biden is the best thing that ever happened to the Mexican drug cartels," he also tweeted.

Cruz is among a growing list of GOP leaders speaking out after the recent American kidnappings.

Two of the four Americans kidnapped were killed. The remaining two have returned to the U.S.

The violence demands action and Democrats have so far done nothing to respond to the latest cartel crime.
