This is the restoration of the Cristeros, Catholic warriors who revolted against the anti-Christian government of Mexico in the 1920s and 30s.
This war will continue between the Autodefensas and the cartels, but ultimately it will be between the Autodefensas — the New Cristeros — and the biggest cartel, the Mexican government. I interviewed the o
