#1 Gov't restrictions on the Narco Trafficers will force illegal drug prices to soar, urban competition for sales and drug turf will intensify. Drug related shootings to increase.

#2 The cartel, I was told, has threatened the migrants to pay steep fees to cross through their territory or go elsewhere, hence the initial moves to Tijuana

An expected reaction. The cartels, being businessmen at heart, know which side of the border their bread is buttered on. Note they are not taxing/extorting the poor "migrants", but rather the NGOs *cough*Soros*cough* who are funding the caravans.

#3 the Mexican cartel across the river, CDG, was angered by the U.S. troop deployment because it slowed the pace of drug smuggling Screw them.
