The US is offering $20 million for El Chapo's sons, but they're not the only 'narcojuniors' on the rise in Mexico's most powerful cartel

The US government offered a reward of up to $5 million for four of the "El Chapo" Guzmn's sons.

The highest offer for the group is in the US.

They are only a few of the "narcojuniors" who are rising to power in Mexico's biggest criminal group.

The US government is offering up to $5 million for information leading to the capture of four of Joaqun "El Chapo" Guzmn's sons.

Ivn Archivaldo Guzmn and his brother, Jess Alfredo Guzmn, were the sons of the elder Guzmn.

The US has never offered a reward of $5 million for each of the sons. They are accused of being high-ranking members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The US State Department says that the Guzmn-Salazar brothers have expanded their enterprise with sophisticated laboratories and increased their use of maritime and air transportation.

Guzmn was extradited to the US in January of last year.

According to the US, the Guzmn-Lpez brothers have high-level command and control roles in a section of the drug gang that is making up to 5,000 pounds of meth a month.

Ivn Archivaldo is well known for showing off cars, money, and ostentatious belongings on social media. After Mexican authorities attempted to arrest him, he gained international attention and was released.

The reward offer says that Ovidio Guzmn-Lpez has ordered the murders of people, including a popular Mexican singer who refused to sing at his wedding.

The most notorious of Mexico's drug lords is located in Culiacn, the capital of Sinaloa state, and a new group of "narcojuniors" is rising alongside them.

The sons of other notorious drug lords are believed to be behind the operations of the cartel.

A video of a gunfight in a Culiacan club put El Chapo's nephew, Aureliano Guzmn Araujo, in the spotlight.

Several men are opening fire in a club. A man who appears to be Guzmn Araujo shoots into the ceiling after a third man pulls his hands up. A man shoots another man who then falls to the floor.

According to sources in Culiacn, Guzmn Araujo is the son of Aureliano Guzmn Loera and is a violent member of a new group of leaders in the Cartel.

The elder Aureliano is believed to be vying for control of the group. Guzmn Araujo is also known as El Guanillo, a diminutive form of his father's nickname.

El Guanillo is a violent place. A source in the city told Insider that he was known for ordering people to be killed around Culiacn.

The Mexican government captured Ovidio Lopez on October 17, 2019.

The source said that Guzmn Araujo tried to get the head of the man he was fighting against, but another friend of his lifted his hand. He would've killed that man if he'd given a fuck in front of everyone.

The US has offered a $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of Aureliano Guzmn loera.

The source in Culiacn said that the sons of the Guzmans are using their names to operate openly in the state. They are a new litter that is more violent. They were raised around guns and killings.

The son of a reputed narco is known as "El Mochomito", after his father.

The nephew of El Chapo was freed from a Mexican prison without fanfare in September after serving five years of a 10-year sentence for drug trafficking.

Sources say the sons of a shadowy figure called "El Mayo" are part of a new crop of leaders in the state.

After his half-brother was found guilty of aiding and abetting his father in running the strongest of the group, Ismael Zambada Sicairos stepped up to help his father.

His dad's right-hand is El Mayito Flaco. His name is very well-known in Culiacn and he keeps a low profile. A source in Culiacn said that he travels with a lot of security when he is in the city.

In November of 2013, the Drug Enforcement Administration captured the second son of the Zambada family, "El Sera." He was released from prison. A source inside the organization said that he is active in the organization, but his whereabouts are unknown.

The source said that the Zambadas are very shadowy, and that their names keep popping up as being everywhere.

The source said that they receive orders from the viejn and that they hear about his sons helping in operations around the US border.

There is a new fighting in an old war.

The Mexican media reported in late 2020 that more than 17 groups were fighting for control of the Sinaloa Cartel, which is considered to be one of the most powerful criminal groups in the world.

Insider has been told that the Guzmn loera family is fighting the El Mayo family in some parts of Mexico.

Mexico and the US have cooperated to capture or kill drug traffickers. The number of armed groups in Mexico has grown because of that approach.

Mexican President Lpez Obrador has tried to move away from a confrontational approach to the drug war.

Lpez Obrador said at his daily press conference that Mexico should capture Los Chapitos if they were in Mexico.

Lopez Obrador said that they will not allow any foreign enforcement to act against this issue or any other.
