Breaking: Mexico’s President Just Announced Something MAJOR About Drug Lord ‘El Chapo’

The Mexican drug lord known as “El Chapo” has been captured, Mexican officials said Friday.

“Mission accomplished: We have him,” Mexican President Pena Nieto said in Spanish on his Twitter account. “I want to inform all Mexicans that Joaquin Guzman Loera has been arrested.”

The Associated Press reported that Guzman, 57, was seized Friday after a shootout with Mexican marines in Los Mochis, in Guzman’s home state of Sinaloa. AP reported that five people were killed in the shootout, and one Marine was wounded. Marines seized two armored vehicles, eight rifles, one handgun and a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, the news agency reported. AP quoted an official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to be quoted by name. ABC reported that American authorities confirmed the capture of Guzman, the reputed head of the Sinaloa Cartel, which smuggled billions of dollars worth of drugs into the United States and fought deadly battles with other Mexican gangs.

In October, the government said Guzman was injured when Mexican security forces almost caught up with him.

Guzman broke out of prison in July, escaping through a mile-long tunnel underneath his cell.

After his escape, there were criticisms that Mexico was unable to hold him safely, and that Guzman should have been held in the United States. That may now take place.

Mexico’s Attorney General’s office said in July it had approved an order to extradite him north of the border. Guzman is wanted in the U.S. for various criminal charges including cocaine smuggling and money laundering.

“If confirmed it’s obviously a great sign that in spite of concerns that Pena Nieto’s government would go easy on kingpins and organized crime, it hasn’t,” said Malcolm Beith, a journalist who wrote a book on Guzman. “Catching Chapo again now gives Mexico a great opportunity to either try him quickly and fairly and make sure that if found guilty he remains behind bars or extradite him and prove that US-Mexican relations are just as strong as ever.”

Guzman’s July escape was his second. In 2001, he broke out of a maximum-security prison by hiding in a laundry cart.

El Chapo Just Found Out What ISIS Was Doing, Takes Matters Into His Own Hands–‘Your God Cannot Save You…’

In a contest where it is hard to find a side to root for, news reports now say that notorious drug cartel kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán is sick and tired of the ISIS terror group interfering with his drug business and is now declaring war on the terror outfit.

Inside sources say that El Chapo, whose full name is Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, is now setting his not-inconsiderable resources against ISIS because the terror group has been interdicting his shipments of drugs going into and out of the Middle East.

According to CartelBlog, a site that tracks drug cartel news, El Chapo has sent a warning to ISIS that he is about to go to war against them for their constant interference with his drug empire.

As drugs are not a part of the organizations ideology for a Muslim State, ISIS fighters have been destroying shipments of drugs from the cartels.

The cartels have made it clear that ISIS just made a huge mistake by destroying their shipments. It’s clear from the leaked emails that they are not only extremely mad, but are definitely willing to step up and take the organization out if they continue to mess with their business.

According to sources, El Chapo has sent ISIS the following strong message:

“You [ISIS] are not soldiers. You are nothing but lowly p*ssies. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.”

“My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a whore that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them.”

It is without a doubt that El Chapo’s forces are at least as vicious and heartless in war as ISIS; so if this fight develops, it would certainly be a hard-fought contest.

El Chapo, of course, has become famous as the man that Mexican authorities cannot hold. The drug kingpin has been arrested many times but has escaped confinement every single time. The last time El Chapo escaped from a Mexican prison, it was from one of the country’s toughest maximum security prisons.

The drug lord actually had a mile-long tunnel dug underneath the prison that ended at a prison shower room, where the killer went in for a shower and just walked right out of the prison. The tunnel was no slap-dash affair, either. After his escape, authorities discovered it was both lighted and ventilated.

DHS Just Made A Huge Discovery At The Southern Border That’ll Put Many On Edge

Concern over Syrian refugees entering the United States has greatly escalated since the terror attacks on Paris last Friday.

Honduran authorities recently discovered five Syrians with doctored Greek passports who were intent on entering the United States.

One report concerning Syrian refugees is sure to spark even more controversy.

Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrians attempted to cross the U.S. border from Mexico.

Border Patrol agent and NBPC Local 2455 President Hector Garcia spoke to Breitbart Texas: “Border Patrol agents who we represent have been contacting our organization to voice concerns about reports from other agents that Syrians crossed the U.S. border from Mexico in the Laredo sector. Our agents have heard about Syrians being apprehended in the area from other federal agents. At this time, I cannot confirm or deny the Syrians have crossed, for security reasons.”

He added that Local 2455 “will be issuing an officer safety bulletin advising Border Patrol agents to exercise extra precautions as they patrol the border.”

The Pew Research Center reported in 2014 that non-Mexicans crossing U.S. borders illegally now outnumber Mexicans crossing the border illegally. Many come from Central American countries, but other countries worldwide are represented as well.

Donald Trump recently said: “I have a real concern that people coming into this country are coming in for very bad purposes and they are coming all different ways, coming in for some very bad purposes.”

What do you think of the report from the Border Patrol agents that eight Syrians attempted to cross the U.S. border from Mexico?

He Escaped Jail And Ran Thousands Of Miles Away- Then He Snapped A Pic That Got Him Caught

One fugitive may have run like the wind and made it past the border of Mexico, but that did not keep the long arm of the law from using Facebook taunts to nab their man.

Nicholas Grove, 38, from Idaho escaped from the Payette County Jail in late August, 2014, climbing over a razor wire topped fence and running off. He ultimately made it over 3700 miles to the south to Cancun, Mexico.

According to KBOI2, “Grove had been in the Payette County Jail for charges on unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, possession of burglary tools and an invalid license.” He escaped several weeks after his arrest. 

The fugitive, who must have been feeling pretty safe, began posting pictures on Facebook taunting law enforcement. “I’ve had more help from total strangers than any of my ‘friends’ or family,” Grove wrote.

He made several posts alluding to living in Mexico, possibly in Cancun.

“Social media certainly played a roll originally because this certain individual bragged about his escape on Facebook,” said Brian Underwood, a U.S. Marshal who has been working on the case.

Authorities arrested him over one year after his escape in Tulum, Mexico, near Cancun.

“He caused us some grief and so we’re glad to see that he’s off the streets,” Payette County Sheriff Chad Huff said. “Ultimately, he’ll get his day in court in Payette County and we’re thankful again for the Marshal.”

Look What the Mexican Military Just Did To An American TODDLER At The Texas Border

Saida De La Torre is grateful that she and her daughter are alive, after the Mexican military shot up her car near the border community of Camango last week. 

The incident, which left her 18-month-old daughter shot in the back and her SUV riddled with bullets, happened last week, while De La Torre was in Mexico visiting family.

The American citizen described what happened to ABC News affiliate KRGV“I was going to pick up my oldest daughter and was on the road, when we heard gun shots,” De La Torre said. “I told my cousin that we needed to go back to my parent’s house, because it looked like something was going down. When I made a turn, I saw a vehicle with soldiers traveling really fast.”

The woman recounted seeing a black vehicle speed by, which was similar to the Dodge Nitro in which she was traveling. She pulled over for a period of time and then turned around to head back towards her parents’ home.

The crisis appeared to have passed, when soldiers came out of nowhere trailing her vehicle.

“Everything seemed to be normal while I was driving back, but then I heard gun shots again,” De La Torre said. “They sounded a lot closer. I began to realize the soldiers were following me. I thought they were following the truck that I had seen speeding,” she added. “I think they got confused and thought my truck was the one they were first chasing. They started firing at us.”

“I got to the house,” De La Torre said. “I got off the truck and ran toward my father who was outside.”

A Rio Grande City mother and daughter are recovering after being reportedly shot by Mexican soldiers.

Posted by KRGV on Wednesday, October 28, 2015

The woman recalled the soldiers pulled up to the house and got out of their vehicle with weapons drawn.

Her father confronted the soldiers, who nonetheless proceeded to check De La Torre’s vehicle and found nothing.

In the meantime, De La Torre took her daughter from her SUV and realized she had been shot. She plead with the troops to help get the toddler to the hospital, but they simply left.

Her daughter eventually was transported to a San Antonio hospital where she underwent surgery and was released on Monday.

De La Torre filed a complaint with local authorities, who apologized for their error. They also informed her that they had captured the people they were pursuing when the case of mistaken identity occurred.

De La Torre said that Mexican authorities promised to repair her truck or help her buy a new one. 

The area where the incident occurred “is dominated by the Gulf cartel, and has been the scene of turf battles both between factions of the Gulf gang and the rival Zetas cartel,” the Associated Press reports.
