The Department of Justice announced criminal charges against Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro and members of his cabinet for narco-terrorism. The U.S. recognizes Juan Guaido as the legitimate president even though Maduro manages to maintain power.

On Thursday morning, U.S. Attorney General William Barr and top aides held a streamed news conference where they announced the charges against the longtime dictator and members of his regime.

“We don’t recognize Maduro as the president of Venezuela,” Barr said during the virtual press conference.

According to Barr, Maduro’s regime coordinated the movement of drugs from Venezuela to cartels and worked with foreign terrorist organization designees such as Colombia’s Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC). That relationship spans more than a decade where Maduro invited the Colombian terrorists to train with some Venezuelan forces.

As part of the federal actions, the U.S. Department of State announced a reward of $15 million for information leading to Maduro’s arrest and a $10 million reward for National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello Rondón, former head of military intelligence General Hugo Carvajal Barrios, General Clíver Alcalá Cordones, and industry minister Tareck Zaidan El Aissami Maddah.

Maduro took to Twitter to claim the U.S. and Colombia were conspiring to fill his country with more violence.

A group of cartel gunmen ambushed and murdered three women and six children near a rural Mormon community in Mexico, close to the New Mexico border. Six more children, all from the same family, were also injured. One additional girl remains missing. Relatives stated that all of the victims are dual U.S. and Mexican citizens.

The attack took place on Monday when three women from the Lebaron family were driving their 14 children from the town of Bavispe, Sonora, to a rural Mormon community called La Mora. According to Mexico’s SinEmbargo.com.mx, Rhonita Miller Lebaron was driving one of the vehicles with her four children–two six-month-old twins and two ages 8 and 9–when her SUV got a flat tire. Her relatives turned back towards Bavispe to bring a spare.

When the relatives returned, they found large plumes of smoke coming from the roadside scene. The relatives found a charred SUV with their loved inside the vehicle. Soon after, a group of cartel gunmen attacked and forced them to run into the brush for cover.

The two other women and their children were struck numerous times by gunfire. Six of the children ran into the brush and survived, but one young girl is still missing. In the aftermath, cartel gunmen sealed the area for hours to keep news of the massacre from spreading. Lebaron family members in the U.S. took to social media to raise awareness about the murders.

UPDATE

Initial reports from the family said 12 members were killed. Over night, the number of dead adjusted to 10. Alfonso Durazo, Mexico’s Public Security Secretary, announced Tuesday morning that the death toll stands at three women and six children. Another six children were injured and one more remains missing as of Tuesday morning.

Mexican authorities are on high alert regarding three ISIS-linked terror suspects who are believed to be making their way from Central America to Mexico and potentially the U.S. border. Authorities were warned the suspects could try to enter Mexico within a large migrant group or with the help of human smugglers.

Breitbart News exclusively confirmed that Mexican Federal Police are on alert, preparing to encounter or arrest Ahamed Ghanim Mohamed Al Juburi from Iraq, and Ibrahim Mohamed and Mohamed Eissa from Egypt. The three men are believed to have entered through Panama in May, crossed through Costa Rica on June 9, and could be headed to Mexico, a leaked internal security memo revealed. The documents make reference to BITMAP, the U.S. Homeland Security Investigations’ Biometric Identification Transnational Migration Alert Program, a collection of databases on “special interest aliens, violent criminals, fugitives and confirmed or suspected terrorists encountered within illicit pathways.”

A document obtained by Breitbart News from Mexico’s Federal Police revealed that on June 21, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned Mexico about the suspects and asked for cooperation in attempting to stop them if they were encountered in or approaching Mexico. The document asked for cooperation from all Mexican agencies.
