Both the CDN and the Gulf Cartel have a dispute over Tamaulipas with extensions to New Lion. At least since the mid-1980s, the area has been a stronghold for drug cartels given its geographic location, as it borders on its northern border with the United States, the main consumer of narcotics.

In their antecedents, the current criminal groups were part of the same faction, but over the years they had differences and betrayals that led them to fragmentation.

Although both maintain dominions in certain municipalities, neither of them is so powerful to impose itself on the other. These regional battles are more constant and acute, since they are kept in a context of survival.
