El Chapo's mother calls on Mexican President to bring her son home

El Chapo’s mother calls on Mexican President to bring her son home claiming jailed drug lord was ILLEGALLY extradited to the U.S.

  • The Mexican government shared the letter that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador received from Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán’s mother March 20
  • María Consuelo Loera told the president that her lawyers had been in contact as directed with government officials to expatriate her son to his home country

  • In the letter, Loera writes that her son should serve his sentence in a Mexican jail
  • López Obrador briefly met Loera on Sunday during a visit to the jailed cartel kingpin’s hometown of Badiraguato in the northwestern state of Sinaloa

The mother of the world’s most notorious cartel leader claims attorneys have ample evidence that will force the United States to turn over her son to Mexican authorities so he can serve the rest of his sentence in his country.

In a letter dated March 20, María Consuelo Loera wrote to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to say Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán was illegally extradited to the U.S. by officials in January 2017.

The missive indicates that her team of lawyers followed his directions and provided his cabinet ‘evidence … where it is clear that my son was illegally handed over to the government of the United States of America. Nothing would make me and my family happier to see him where you should be in a prison in Mexico.’

Loera also informed the Mexican leader that the United States government had rejected her petition for a humanitarian visa, which was submitted at the U.S. embassy in Mexico City in June 2019.

The mother asked López Obrador to provide her ‘support so that I am allowed to visit my son since I am 92-years-old.’ 

She also asked the leftist president to consider ‘the sickness that afflicts me as well as my great wishes to see him [El Chapo]. I already have more than five years without seeing him.’
