The Carteles Unidos (United Cartels) also known as La Resistencia (The Resistance) is considered to be the "enforcer squad" composed of well-trained gunmen from the Sinaloa Cartel, Gulf Cartel, and Knights Templar Cartel. The United Cartel was originally created by Sinaloa leader Ignacio Coronel Villarreal in 2010 and had allied itself with gunmen from the Milenio Cartel and La Familia Michoacana, shortly after Los Zetas encroached Michoacan territory. The sole purpose of the La Resistencia group was to kill or expel members from the Los Zetas Cartel that operated in the Mexican states of Michoacan and Jalisco. Currently, their primary rival would be the Jalisco New Generation Cartel and their stated initiative is to stop the CJNG leader "El Mencho."VideoVideo: 2013 Ramiro "El Molca" Pozos Gonzalez Speaks on the Division of the Milenia Cartel in Jalisco

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
