      Cartel violence has Mexican nationals moving to Valley

      Recent drug cartel violence in Reynosa, Matamoros and other border communities is causing a spike in home sales in the Rio Grande Valley.

      More and more Mexican nationals are buying properties in Brownsville, McAllen and other communities.

      Action 4 news spoke to Juan Carlos Alvarado with Altre Insurance in Brownsville.

      Alvarado said they've seen a big increase of Mexican citizens buying homes in Brownsville.

      He said they are trying to escape the cruel reality of violence occurring on their side of the border.
