Mexican authorities say they discovered the bodies of seven men dumped on a road in an area popular with tourists.

Authorities say the bodies of seven men were found dumped on a road Thursday night in the Huasteca area with numerous bruises that suggest they were beaten.

Writing scribbled at the markers on the corpses read “this is what happened to me for working with the Gulf”, an apparent reference to the Gulf Cartel, which operates primarily along the northern US border.

The messages were signed “Valles Operation OB”, apparently a reference to a rival gang.

San Luis Potosi state prosecutors said late Thursday that the bodies did not appear to be from Aquismon Township and may have been killed elsewhere and dumped in the rural area.

The Huasteca region has long been popular with Mexican tourists for its waterfalls and crystal clear rivers.

Cartel violence is also blamed for simultaneous shooting attacks in two bars in north-central Mexico in late May, which left 11 people dead.

Handwritten signs left at the scene of the murders suggest the attacks were part of a rivalry between two drug cartels that have been battling for control of the state of Guanajuato for several years.

FORMER GULF CARTEL HEAD EXTRADED FROM MEXICO TO UNITED STATES FOR COCAINE TRAFFICKING

Fox News contributor Tom Homan, former acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, warned earlier this month that cartel violence would continue to spread across the United States due to the lack of immigration enforcement by the Biden administration at the southern border.

The most treacherous territory is where convicted felons and drug dealers try to move their drugs because it’s harder to apprehend them,” Homan told America Reports.

Homan continued, “You know, it’s only with the use of a drone that you can see them coming. So, yeah, you’re going to see populations all over the southwest border. Every sector is going to see an increase because the cartel will spread their madness, right? They will send large groups to a certain area knowing that the border patrol will increase the resources there. And that’s where they will displace drugs and convicted felons, pedophiles. Again, this is the worst case scenario. This administration has sold out our national security.
