Telephones for the DEA and FBI in El Paso, Texas are:

Rival factions are dueling it out on YouTube with references to JL and Chihuahua. YouTube has videos by supposed opposing members, some who denounce alleged corruption of authorities, others who posted videos defending the authorities as honest and under attack, and still others hint at a change in the hierarchy of local drug lords who may belong to the Juarez drug cartel.
