I was able to dig up a bit more.

The zetas have had a ranch in Texas for quite awhile.

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6432122.html

This is from the Houston Chronicle and confirmed by the FBI. Evidently, the ranches seized are contiguous to this ranch.

The FBI is advising law enforcement officers across the country that a Texas cell of Los Zetas — an increasingly powerful arm of the Mexican Gulf Cartel drug trafficking syndicate — has acquired a secluded ranch where it trains its members to “neutralize” competitors in the United States.

In order to ensure its share of the lucrative illegal drug trade, the cartel’s members reportedly are operating north of the border to collect debts and spy on competitors. They have also protected cocaine and heroin shipments that were bound for Houston, where they were repackaged and shipped on to Alabama, Delaware, Georgia and Michigan, according to the FBI.

The information, which was disseminated Monday to state, local and federal agencies, does not provide specifics, such as the location of the ranch, but includes a notation that the information came from reliable FBI contacts.

Default Hoax or real?

If you were in Laredo PD and you wanted to leak information would you do it to a media source who could legally protect your ID or to a "Minuteman" In San Diego?

From what I have heard from those IN Laredo, Laredo PD isn't entering into it. This is Border Patrol and County Sheriff since the area in question isn't within the City of Laredo.

In any case, the original source was the San Diego Examiner so instead of a San Diego Minuteman, it was a San Diego reporter.

As I thought. The zetas or associates have been there a while.

From that link,

Trainees are reportedly taught about home invasions, firearms and ways to run vehicles off the road in order to kidnap occupants who owe drug debts.

....

Lt. Dan Webb, of the Texas Department of Public Safety’s narcotics division for the Houston regional office, said Zetas do operate in Houston and other parts of Texas, but they try to limit their time on U.S. soil in order to avoid being arrested by authorities who are far less corrupt than in Mexico.

As for whether the organization has a training ranch in Texas, Webb said there have long been rumors, but he is not aware of hard evidence.

“It very well could be true, but as far as us having a location for the ranch, it is all conjecture,” said Webb, who believes it is more likely they train in Mexico than Texas. “If we had any hard evidence, we’d be all over it.”

He said a lot of drug activity by U.S. gangs, such as the Texas Syndicate or the Mexican Mafia, is mistakenly attributed to Zetas.

Yes. They've been there awhile. But seizing two ranches is expanding it quite a bit. If that's true.

It shouldn't be shocking that our government is protecting cartels. We have Hama and Hezbollah training camps here too.

I have an answer.

Zeta snipers have set up a couple of nests on ranchland near the border. They haven't seized the ranches. They just can't be dislodged from these nests. They are protecting drug and human smugglers crossing that land.

I have an answer.
Snipers have anIR/heat signature, either send in a Sniper to hone-in on that, or have a drone finish Them off.
ECM/Jamming would also render Their communications virtually useless.
We've had this technology for decades, and have used it in every conflict/war since the 60's, but why is the Govt. playing Caveman about this?

Oh no one is going to do anything. The landowners are afraid to go back but they haven't been chased off or anything like that. Maybe the government considers it land sharing!!

According to my sources which are only people who live there. I have no official sources. Of greater concern is the situation at Falcon Lake. There are mexican pirates on the lake robbing fishermen and boaters. Seems like some yahoos, both local and visiting, that are going to the lake heavily armed daring the pirates to attack on the American side of the lake. An international incident could blow up there easier than on these ranches that is, if the snipers are left alone.

Just got a clarification.

The land the snipers are on is land the ranchers have leased from the federal government. Like Roger Barnett, who leases land from the feds and got into trouble stopping illegals from trespassing. Essentially the land the sniper nests are on is federal land. Now you know how the federal government feels about gangs. No one is gonna be chasing those guys off.
