rafa+julionRafa Marquez and Julion Alvarez are among 22 people sanctioned for alleged ties to a drug trafficking organization, the United States Treasury announced Wednesday.

The sanctions are the result of a multi-year investigation of the drug trafficking organization allegedly headed by Raul Flores Hernandez.

It is the single largest such designation of a drug trafficking organization ever by its Office of Foreign Assets Control, the statement said.

Flores Hernandez allegedly operated independently in the northern city of Guadalajara, but maintained alliances with the Sinaloa and Jalisco New Generation cartels.

The U.S. government referred to Rafa and Julion as people with longstanding relationships with Flores Hernandez, who “have acted as front persons for him and his (drug trafficking organization) and held assets on their behalf.”

The sanctions freeze all U.S. assets of the people and entities named and forbid U.S. citizens from doing business with them.

This is CRAZY!!!
