Several congressmen want to call cartel groups terrorists. The designation would give tougher punishment for anyone working for the Zetas, the Cartel del Gulfo or any other drug trafficking organization. The war zone in Mexico is called a threat on U.S. security. (http://www.krgv.com/news/local/story/Legislators-Pushing-to-Designate-Cartel-Groups-as/mAuDlRq0fUuTUINlOXBfQA.cspx - broken link)
