Page 99 of Allegiance introduces two important components of the story.  

First, the Minutemen.  Second, Los Puños, the most significant drug cartel in Mexico in the story.  The Minutemen are of the type that kidnap the main character, Cruz Marquez, at the beginning of the story.  Los Puños are a ruthless, military trained drug cartel.  The story explains that they are the type of cartel that dismembers bodies and leaves them in vats in front of schools—something that has actually occurred across the border. 

The tension between the cartel and the Minutemen starts at this point.  It is a tension that will resolve itself, at least in small part, later in the story.  At page 99, a border vigilante landowner shots a mule trying to cross his land, and ultimately pays dearly for the transgression.
