The drug cartels have been running rampant across the United States border.

But they were just put on notice that they’re unchallenged criminal enterprise will be targeted by the United States.

That’s because Ron DeSantis just crossed one line with the Mexican drug cartels that no other politician will.

Our nation has a drug cartel problem

You can’t deny the fact that crime has skyrocketed in the United States.

Go to any major city and the drug use and murder rate will be off the charts.

Of course, most Democrats love to blame guns and mean old Republicans for the increase in crime.

But when you actually look at the facts, people pulling the trigger are oftentimes connected with gang-related activity.

And one of the largest and most dangerous gangs in the United States is the Mexican drug cartels.

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, many Americans viewed the drug cartels as being hundreds of miles across the border in the heart of Mexico.

If you ever watch Chuck Norris, you would see episodes of him flying into Mexico to fight
the drug cartels.

But the drug cartels are now right at your doorstep, thanks in part to Chuck Norris retiring.

And if you live anywhere near a city, just walk a few blocks and you’ll probably find the presence of the Mexican drug cartels.

Unfortunately, they’re influence in the United States keeps growing as they solidify the fentanyl market along with their enterprise of human trafficking in nearly every corner of the United States.

But even with these facts, the Biden Administration refuses to do anything of substance against the drug cartels.

They’re allowed to flow across the southern border and commit crimes without recourse.

But it looks like the drug cartels might have finally met their match in Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis droning the drug cartels

While out on the campaign trail, someone asked Ron DeSantis if he was going to use military force against the Mexican drug cartels.

He responded in the affirmative.

However, this didn’t settle well with the Democrats at NBC News.

When an NBC reporter asked DeSantis if he planned on using drones against the drug cartels, he said “I said I would use whatever force we need to to defend the country.”

DeSantis continued by saying that the drug cartels are killing thousands of Americans each year and added that he would “categorize them as something akin to a foreign terrorist organization.”

This plays right into DeSantis’ hand.

One of the biggest criticisms of Donald Trump is that he failed to deliver on his promise to go after the drug cartels.

Only time will tell if DeSantis wins and actually follows through on his threats against the drug cartels.

But one can have confidence in knowing that DeSantis has done more unpopular things than attack a deadly organization.

So droning off a few drug cartel leaders would not be that far of a stretch for the Governor.

Would you support DeSantis if he won the GOP nomination?
