- The Mexican cartels uphold their influence in certain territories known as "Plaza's" in the U.S — primarily along the Southern border states such as San Andreas, more specifically Los Santos and Vice City — according to the Drug Enforcement Administration's 2019 National Drug Threat Assessment, the clandestine cartel operations continue to expand to nurture their drug market.
- The report details alterations in cartel presence in the U.S — most notably the increase of Cartel de Sinaloa presence, which is still considered one of the strongest cartels in Mexico. The DEA determine it does not have a major impact on the drug trafficking landscape within the US.
- Mexican cartel members operating in the US, strive to maintain low visibility and generally refrain from inter-cartel violence so as to avoid law enforcement detection and scrutiny.
- [b]"La Unión"[/b]
- La Unión is a T.C.O. (Transnational Criminal Organization) based in the state of San Andreas with its command and control structure suspected to radicate in different border areas of Mexico and U.S.A.
- US-based Mexican (transnational criminal organization) members generally coordinate the transportation and distribution of bulk wholesale quantities of illicit drugs to US markets, while retail-level distribution is mainly handled by smaller local groups and street gangs not directly affiliated with Mexican TCOs.
- The name is a reference to an ambitious business plan that aims to combine the supply lines of Cártel de Sinaloa and Cártel del Noreste through the merging of different crime cells within the state.
- Joaquin Parejo made his mark during his tenure as an enforcer in the Zetas Vieja Escuela cell operating in Las Colinas as their primary Plaza from which they would control Los Santos' lucrative drug markets — shortly after the organizations exit from Los Zetas, Oscar "el Sapo" Villanueva, former federale made his entry to the organization with an order to wrest the organization back under Zeta control.
- Parejo and Villanueva's original partnership resulted in the rise of Los Mirlos, a crew within the Las Colinas organization acting as their intelligence branch — the appearance of the crew sparked internal tensions in the organization, leading to the short independence amidst the turmoil.
- Parejo and Villanueva's exit from the organization marks the end of Los Mirlos, the end of the Las Colinas organization followed shortly after, due to the leaderships neglect of drug trafficking.
