The DEA identified Mexican cartels that operate within the United States and provided a map to show where the drug gangs are wielding influence.
In Texas, for example, the DEA has identified the following cartels operating within the state: the Sinaloa, Gulf, Juarez, the Knights Templar, Beltran-Levya, Jalisco and the Zetas.
But Texas is far from alone. Most states have links to cartels, which can be very violent and supply dangerous drugs.
The areas with the highest concentration of cartel involvement are California, Texas, New York and New England.
