Different Twist: Mexican Police Gather in U.S. Before Returning to Mexico for Raids

WASHINGTON — In a different twist on the war on drugs, Mexican police on a couple occasions in the past 18 months have first gathered in the U.S. before crossing back into Mexico to stage raids, the New York Times reports.

The boomerang operations are designed to throw off the cartels, the Times reports.

“The cartels don’t expect Mexican police coming from the U.S.,” one senior military official told the Times.

The Times reported that the DEA provides logistical support on the American side of the border, “arranging staging areas and sharing intelligence that helps guide Mexico’s decisions about targets and tactics.”

Authorities said the operations are meant to make it more difficult for the cartels, which closely monitor the movements of security forces inside Mexico.
