Among the men listed are the head of the Sinaloa cartel, Joaquin "el Chapo" Guzman, and the heads of La Familia and Los Zetas.

Over 35,000 soldiers and policemen are currently deployed in the troubled area where the drug cartel fights each other for the lucrative drug routes to the US.

Recently the US has sent 2,000 officers and men of the National Guard to secure its borders with Mexico. The long-drawn drug war has spilled over the US-Mexican borders into the US mainland.

Congressional remedies are being drawn by leaders in congress for a legislated solution to the worsening peace and order situation in the US-Mexican borders.
