Former DEA Special Agent Derek Maltz joined The Chad Hasty Show on Wednesday to discuss drug cartel violence, it's impact on the United States, and steps the U.S. government should take to fight the cartels.

Maltz joined the show just days after a drug cartel in Mexico ambushed and massacred U.S. citizens in Mexico. Maltz discussed how the cartels move drugs through the United States and why he believes the U.S. government should designate the cartels terror organizations.
