One of Mexico’s most violent cartels has ignited a fresh controversy by issuing threats to kill escorts and other sex workers who do not pay them protection fees. These threats have surfaced despite continuous claims by Mexican politicians of a decline in crime rates.
Recently, Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) circulated a video on social media, showcasing five cartel hitmen brandishing firearms while holding five kneeling women at gunpoint. Throughout the video, verified and shared at Breitbart News, the cartel members conveyed their menacing ultimatums.

Take a good look. These are the sex slaves being trafficked by Mexican drug cartels.

Within the footage, the gunmen asserted their ownership over all sex work in the region, insisting that escorts and sex workers wear CJNG-issued bracelets as proof of collaboration. Those who refused to comply would face the dire consequence of death, the gunmen menacingly warned. The whereabouts and safety of the women remain uncertain.
The video is believed to have been filmed in the Mexican state of Guanajuato, where Cartel Jalisco New Generation (CJNG) has been able to carry out numerous mass killings without any substantial response from the Mexican government.
CJNG hitmen have perpetrated dozens of brutal attacks on innocent victims in bars and other entertainment venues. They have even threatened to execute any civilians or bystanders found entering a bar that refuses to pay protection fees to CJNG.
This latest video threat emerges at a time when Mexico’s government persistently asserts that impunity and violence have been quelled in the country under the policies of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. However, during President Obrador’s tenure, cartels have experienced significant growth, and the country has witnessed a widespread escalation of violence in formerly peaceful regions.
