TEXAS/ 09 Aug 20/ Rapidly expanding security operations along Texas-Mexico border

SITREP: High-profile arrests/operations are being conducted in Mexico by various law enforcement and military entities. As a result, responsive actions by cartels and criminal organizations based in border states or towns are on the rise. The security situation will likely degrade in the interim inject of U.S. and Mexican law enforcement elements.

RECOMMENDATION: Expect immediate uptick in criminal activity in border towns as dangerous elements are displaced from Tamaulipas and Coahuila toward Texas border communities.
