"All of the major smuggling areas leaning into California, Nogales, Arizona, El Paso, Texas, and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas are fully controlled by the cartels. "

"Thus, we now see from an internal document of the Mexican government an admission that Mexico has essentially lost control over every important populated area in Mexico outside Mexico City and a few others, and particularly the most sensitive areas of the U.S.-Mexican border."

We should start by defining “run by the cartels”
Drug dealers do not “run “ the Country
I would think, without any sources, that 100 % of the drug business are controlled by drug cartels (drug dealers) and 100% of the deals take place in populated areas
