Joseph asks…

What are the different kinds of Mexican drug cartells and where are they located at for each?

What city/ town

Tijuana answers:

There used to be 4 big ones: Tijuana Cartel, although diminished still operates in the border towns of Baja California, Sinaloa Cartel, that used to control most of the central West coast and NW coast and some inland states like Durango and the southern part of Chihuahua; Juarez Cartel this one operates around the northern part of Chihuahua along the border; The Golfo Cartel this one used to have all the North East of Mexico from Coahuila to Tamaulipas and almost limited its operations along the USA border.

Later on after the synthetic drugs became popular a new Cartel arrive to the scene, La Familia, a Cartel that is also very weak now,and operated in the States of Colima and Michoacan and the southern part of Jalisco.

After the war on drugs started all of them started to become divided and new ones arrived to the scene, Zetas used to be the muscle from Golfo Cartel now they operate in all the east coast, Caballeros Templarios, Colima Cartel used to be from La Familia, the Sinaloa Cartel also divided into two Beltrán Leyva and Pacific Cartells, from those other had apeared down south in the State of Guerrero, Morelos, Mexico State,like the South Pacific Cartel, La Barredora, La Compañia, Nueva Generación in fact more and more Cartels appear with time, but they started to become smaller and less powerful.

My question is that I want to know if i can drive my car across the border just for regular stuff like family, food, car stuff, etc? Is there any problem with a Ame/Mex to drive his mexican car and use his US passport to cross the border?

Tijuana answers:

No problem. I have seen many baja plated cars driving around in California.

Carol asks…

What was a liberal during mexican revolution?

Tijuana answers:

Mexican Revolution

Political Dictionary: Mexican Revolution

The first social revolution of the twentieth century (1910-20). It started as a political revolution against the more than thirty-year dictatorship of General Porfirio Díaz. This movement was led by Francisco I. Madero, whose motto ‘Effective suffrage, no re-election’ crystallized discontent around the country in 1910-11 against Díaz’s permanence in power. Eventually Díaz went into exile in Paris, while Madero won democratic elections and became Mexico’s president in 1911. However, the ancien régime forces, supported by United States ambassador Henry Lane Wilson, overthrew and assassinated Madero, and installed General Huerta in power in 1913. Under intense pressure from several revolutionary factions, Huerta fled to the United States in 1914.

After this the violent conflict became a social revolution. Leaders such as Emiliano Zapata in the south and Pancho Villa in the centre-north fought for land reform and social justice. Eventually these groups had to compromise with the more liberal-constitutional-oriented ones headed by Venustiano Carranza and Alvaro Obregón. The result was the drafting of the 1917 Constitution, a social liberal constitution, the first of its kind, which still rules Mexico today. The constitution granted liberal (civil and political) and social (land reform, progressive labour legislation) rights. The ideal was to create the conditions for the development of modern social citizenship. This new framework, probably the Mexican Revolution’s greatest achievement, enabled Mexico’s twentieth-century sociopolitical history to be more progressive than several other big Latin American countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Peru, where no social revolution took place.
liberal means……

Mexican Liberal Party (Spanish: Partido Liberal Mexicano) was an anarchist group co-founded by Ricardo Flores Magón in 1906, in opposition to the rule of Porfirio Díaz. The MLP was involved in strikes and uprisings in Mexico from 1906 to 1911. The party controlled most parts of Baja California in 1911, including Tijuana, Mexicali, and Tecate.

The MLP was supported from exile in Texas by the feminist writer
