Mexico Rescinds DEA Airplane Parking Spot

Significantly truncates DEA access in the country.

The government of Mexico has rescinded authorization for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to park their plane in the country. The DEA has used a small plane for innumerable operations in Mexico since the 1990s. They were able to keep their plane parked in Toluca, close to Mexico City, to safely fly both agents and captured drug lords to and from the United States. 

By not having a parking spot in Mexico, “It will bring things to a halt. We can’t drive through parts of Mexico, it’s too dangerous,” said a security source familiar with DEA operations. The DEA moved their 10-seater twin-turboprop to Texas, where it will stay until the current situation changes. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the federal agents who will have their efforts limited by Mexico’s decision to rescind the airplane space.
  • That God would strengthen the DEA agents as they seek to protect the U.S. from drug trafficking.
  • For U.S. law enforcement as they work to prevent cartels from smuggling drugs into the nation.
