      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.
