Two Americans kidnapped at gunpoint at the US-Mexico border by ‘Gulf Cartel’ have been found dead while two others have been located alive but one wounded.
The Governor of Tamaulipas confirmed the condition of the four Americans in a press conference on Tuesday.
The Tamaulipas State Attorney General’s Office said: ‘The four American citizens deprived of their liberty last Friday were found.
‘Unfortunately two are dead. Investigation and intelligence work continues to capture those responsible. Details will be given later.’
The terrifying ordeal was caught on video of the four Americans being shot at, then kidnapped at gunpoint by a Mexican drugs cartel. The Americans drove over the border into Matamoros, Mexico on Friday in a white minivan. Shortly after entering Mexican territory the vehicle came under attack, according to an investigation being done by the San Antonio FBI office.
The Daily Mail reports that a U.S. official with knowledge of the incident told CNN that the four Americans were in Mexico for a medical procedure, according to documents that were found inside their vehicle. The official said that the cartel henchmen confused the group with Haitian smugglers.
‘All four Americans were placed in a vehicle and taken from the scene by armed men,’ said the office. The FBI is offering a $50,000 reward for the return of the victims and the apprehension of the culprits.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
