The New Michoacana Family on US sanctions list

America has declared war on drug brothers José Alfredo Hurtado and Johnny Hurtado. The La Nueva Familia Michoacana ‘brand’ is rainbow fentanyl pills. The gang has also been accused of trafficking heroin, meth and cocaine along with fentanyl disguised as Adderall, Xanax or Oxycodone. Mexican authorities said a massacre of 20 townspeople in Totolapan, Guerrero last month was the work of José Alfredo. The Oct. 5 attack killed the town’s mayor, his father and 18 other men.
The cartel is known as “The New Michoacan Family,” to distinguish it from an older gang that was expelled from Michoacan in the mid 2010s.
