Mexican drug Lord Joaquin archivaldo Gusman Loera is known as "El Chapo," who has become a legend in Mexico because of his numerous prison escapes, arrived on Thursday evening in new York after he was extradited to the United States.
Guzman will appear Friday in a Federal courtroom in Brooklyn, where he will stand trial. Strict security measures have been put in place around the prison of Manhattan, which contains Guzman, said a source in law enforcement bodies. The Brooklyn bridge will be closed at a time when the drug kingpin is transported to court.
The results came at the right time. Mexican authorities wanted to return Guzman, head of Sinaloa cartel, before the inauguration Friday of President-elect Donald trump, a us official said to CNN. Trump has pissed off Mexico during his campaign, requiring her to pay for the border wall. Guzman, who was transferred last year in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, was arrested by the team of the Department for the fight against drugs, immigration and marshals law enforcement activities of U.S. customs.
6 separate indictment cases opened in the United States against Guzman and other drug dealers, claiming that they have delivered billions of tons of drugs into the United States and laundered the profits back to Mexico. The results of a drug Baron USA brings an end to the deeds of Guzman in Mexico, which includes the escape in 2015, according to the tunnel a mile long.
Guzman and other cartel leaders were charged in 2009 in U.S. district court in Brooklyn on charges of conspiracy to import more than 264 thousand pounds of cocaine into the United States between 1990 and 2005. Guzman also faces charges in California, Texas, Illinois, Florida and new Hampshire. Mexico's foreign Ministry said that it had received assurances that the convict Guzman will avoid the death penalty. Mexico opposes the death penalty.
The trafficking of heroin, marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine in the United States from Mexico is an annual $19 billion to $20 billion industry, according to the Department of homeland security report.
