Mexican crime group has come as far as Nashville

The Dallas Morning News reports that the group of Mexican ex-military knowns as the Zetas has operated inside the United States, and possibly as far as Nashville.

"A team of rogue Mexican commandos blamed for dozens of killings along the U.S.-Mexico border has carried out at least three drug-related slayings in Dallas, a sign that the group is extending its deadly operations into U.S. cities, two American law enforcement officials say."

"They are extending their reach - and violence - beyond the Nuevo Laredo-to-Matamoros border area into Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, where they blend into burgeoning Mexican immigrant communities, state and federal officials said."

"The group may have ventured as far as Nashville, Tenn., and Atlanta, Ga., the officials said."
