On 15 July 2022, the U.S. Mission to Mexico issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “There is the potential for confrontations between criminal organizations and Mexican security forces in Sinaloa, based on reports of the arrest of a prominent cartel leader. U.S. citizens should expect to encounter increased Mexican law enforcement presence in both Sinaloa and Sonora. Criminal organization assassinations and territorial disputes can result in bystanders being injured or killed.”
