Disturbing Video Of Truck Convoy Isn’t From Ukraine, It’s From Our Southern Border That’s Spiraling Into Chaos
The violence is so bad that the United States has closed its consulate in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico just a few miles from the border with the United States.
Cartel members attacked commercial vehicles waiting to cross into the United States blocking the route.
Gunfire and explosions were reported all over the city after cartel members retaliated over the arrest of their leader.
Nuevo Laredo Mayor Carmen Lilia Canturosas and the United States government are ordering all citizens to take precautions.
The US Consulate is telling American citizens to stay out of the area and those who are living in the city to “seek shelter.”
Below are images after the attack.

The attack was in retaliation for the Cartel leader Juan Gerardo Trevino Chavez, who was in charge of the Del Noreste Cartel and a group of “assassins.
“Juan Gerardo ‘N’ (alias) ‘El Huevo’ is the one who leads the criminal organization of the Cartel Del Noreste and the Tropas del Infierno group of assassins, heirs to the members of the Zetas group,” the Mexican army said in a statement.
One of the gun battles took place near the US Consulate which prompted the State Department to issue a shelter in place order.
