Mexico has agreed to turn over the famous Mexican Cartel man known as "El Chapo".

The U.S. agreed not to seek the death penalty in his trial.

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera is facing multiple charges here in the U.S.

I wonder if the election of Trump had anything to do with Mexico's "decision" ?

Mexican Cartel Kingpin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman Extradited to U.S.

Mexico has announced the extradition of Mexican Drug Lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera.

A prepared statement issued on Thursday afternoon from Mexico’s Foreign Relations Ministry announced the extradition that took place on Thursday.

Known as “El Chapo”, Guzman has been the leader of the famed Sinaloa Cartel–a criminal organization responsible for most of the drug trafficking in the country. Guzman is facing multiple charges in U.S. federal district courts in Texas, California, and Washington, D.C., that include money laundering, drug trafficking, conspiracy, and murder.

Trump doesn't want Mexico's criminals.

Come Monday morning “El Chapo” will probably be the first to be deported.

It might be interesting if he sings for a lighter sentence. Clintons and Carlos Slim. To name but two old friends.

He requested to be extradited to be in better jail conditions, he was being sexually assaulted...

Law and order indeed.

Quite possibly a trade off to fund the wall? If I were Mexico's President, I would not pay for the wall either. However, if the U.S.A. has legal access to assets through convictions, then the Mexican government could possibly thwart financial obligation to the construction of the wall... it's the only logical path to take, being that the cartels created the mess and government should not be financially responsible for what the cartels do.

They don't want criminal convictions near as much as they wish for civil convictions that come with financial penalties...

Financial help to build a wall? Doubt it. I just checked and the US is 19 trillion dollars in the red. Pretty sure they won't get it out of him.

I would think it be in the best interest to keep him where he is unlikely to escape?, I guess it depend's on your interest.

He wanted to be extradited due to claims of sexual assault in the jail. Or is that so he can escape again? Why was he out in the prison population as it was being that high profile, sounds like a security concern as well. However, after all the people who died and were sexually assaulted by the cartels, no sympathy there on his plight.

NO. Mexico purposefully did this to give Obama credit and say a big F U to Trump. Viva Mexico!

It would be hilarious if Obama pardoned him.
