Fight Against Transnational Gangs

Attorney General Kamala D. Harris has prioritized fighting transnational organized crime in California. Today, transnational criminal organizations are engaged in a number of criminal activities that affect both our residents and business communities. For example, these criminal groups have made California the single biggest point of entry for methamphetamine into the United States, with 70% alone entering through the San Diego Port of Entry. As much as $40 billion in illicit funds were laundered in the state in 2012, according to Attorney General Harris’ 2014 report, Gangs Beyond Borders: California and the Fight Against Transnational Organized Crime. This is the first comprehensive report analyzing the current state of transnational criminal organizations in California.

In 2014, Attorney General Harris also led a delegation of state attorneys general to Mexico City for high-level talks with Mexican federal officials and state attorneys general on our shared effort to combat drug, human and firearms trafficking, money laundering and high-tech crime. In Mexico City, Attorney General Harris and the state attorneys general delegation also signed a cooperation agreement with Mexico’s National Banking and Securities Commission to establish a bi-national working group on money laundering enforcement to enhance the ability of state law enforcement authorities and Mexico to jointly address transnational organized crime. In October 2014, Attorney General Harris announced the creation of a new anti-methamphetamine team composed of six Special Agents based in Los Angeles focused on the investigation of illicit activities related to the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine in California.
