As a high-ranking position within the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, Valencia González was identified in July 2020 by the Mexico’s Defense Secretary Luis Cresencio Sandoval as one of the leaders of the criminal organization’s Grupo Elite (Elite Group).

The armed wing was formed in 2019 and operates in the states of Zacatecas, Guanajuato, and Michoacán, the government said.

Valencia González was born out of a relationship between his mother, Rosalinda González, and a man she met while she was working in California as a day laborer and housekeeper, online news outlet Infobae reported.

Rosalinda González, who was 14 when she gave birth to Juan Carlos Valencia González, met and fell in love with El Mencho two years later.

Laisha Oseguera, the daughter of Jalisco New Generation Cartel leader Nemesio 'El Mencho' Oseguera, reportedly plotted the abduction of two sailors on November 15 at a Walmart parking lot in Zapopan, a city in the western Mexico state of Jalisco. Military officials maintain that the kidnapping was carried out in response to the arrest of her mother, Rosalinda González

Laisha Oseguera, the daughter of Jalisco New Generation Cartel leader Nemesio ‘El Mencho’ Oseguera, reportedly plotted the abduction of two sailors on November 15 at a Walmart parking lot in Zapopan, a city in the western Mexico state of Jalisco. Military officials maintain that the kidnapping was carried out in response to the arrest of her mother, Rosalinda González

She and El Mencho married several years later and had three children Laisha Michelle Oseguera, 20; Ruben ‘El Menchito’ Oseguera, 31; and Jessica Johana Oseguera, 35. 

El Mencho was a former cop who became the leader of the notorious Jalisco New Generation Cartel, the two of most powerful criminal groups in Mexico along with the Sinaloa Cartel.

The United States is offering a $10 million reward that leads to the arrest and/or conviction of the leader behind the ultra-violent cartel, which according to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is the ‘biggest criminal drug threat’ to the U.S.

His two oldest children, El Menchito and Jessica Johana Oseguera, are currently in U.S. custody.

El Menchito was extradited from Mexico to Washington, D.C., on February 20, 2020 and is facing gun and drugs charges that could land him in prison for life.

El Menchito, who was born in San Francisco, California, is considered by federal prosecutors as the heir to the cartel’s throne and was the organization’s second-in-command prior to being arrested by Mexican security forces in June 2015. 

Jessica Oseguera, one of the three children of fugitive Mexican drug lord Nemesio 'El Mencho' Oseguera. The 35-year-old, who was arrested on February 26, 2020, pleaded guilty March 12  and on June 11 was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for laundering money for her father's criminal organization, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel. She is slated to be released April 13, 2022

Jessica Oseguera was arrested six days after El Menchito’s extradition while she was attending his court hearing in Washington.

The mother-of-two pleaded guilty on March 12 to charges of overseeing financial transactions for six businesses that provided support to the Jalisco New Generation Cartel. She was sentenced to two and a half years in prison in Washington DC on June 11.

The youngest of the three siblings,  Laisha Michelle Oseguera is being eyed by Mexican officials of being behind the November 15 kidnapping of two Navy sailors in the Jalisco city of Zapopan hours after González was arrested.

González’s apprehension was order because she had had failed to comply with a regularly scheduled court appearance as part of the terms set by a judge when she was released on bail in September 2018, four months after she was nabbed on accusations that she laundered money for El Mencho’s organization.

Mexico’s defense ministry described the arrest as ‘a significant blow to the financial structure of organized crime in the state of Jalisco.’

She faces charges for several crimes, including her involvement in ‘the illicit financial operation of an organized crime group,’ the ministry added.

With El Mencho’s two oldest biological children in prison, Valencia González reportedly has risen to third-in-command within the Jalisco New Generation.

‘(The cartel) is one of Mexico’s most violent and prolific drug trafficking organizations, which has been flooding the United States with fentanyl and methamphetamine, causing the overdose and death of countless Americans,’ DEA Administrator Anne Milgram said in a statement.
