if you think this is just a Mexican problem think again...

Police later arrested Ernesto Antonio Rocha Reyes, 26, a suspected hitman, who they said was an associate of Edgar Valdez Villarreal.

Villarreal, 37, an alleged Mexican-American drug trafficker who was born in Texas, is nicknamed "La Barbie" because his blue eyes and light complexion are said to make him resemble a Ken doll.

So we got us an American born Citizen down there trying to play drug lord
I'd say that qualifies as a US connection to the cartels

probably...
or DEA or any one of a dozen other special ops
but what's sad is the mother and her baby girl becoming collateral damage
