The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, confirmed that last Sunday during his working tour of Badiraguato, Sinaloa, he greeted María Consuelo Loera Pérez, mother of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, and sent him a letter in which he asked for help to see his son, who is currently incarcerated in a maximum security prison in the United States, sentenced to life in prison for drug trafficking.
López Obrador indicated that he will publish the letter that El Chapo’s mother, because, he said, has nothing to hide.
“I ask the lady to understand me, and that we have nothing to hide, and there is nothing that can embarrass us, neither she nor me, she has every right, as a mother, to defend to his son, he has every right to do so and I have the obligation to listen to all Mexicans, so the moment I give them the letter, he tells me of the first effort that was made that was not successful, and he asks me now that she wants to see her son, that she could not see him ”he explained.
The letter, written on a typewriter, begins with a greeting.
“Dear brother in christ:
First of all, I wish to thank you for your intervention on the letter that we delivered on your first visit to Badiraguato, Sinaloa last year, and I would like to inform you of the following.
Our lawyers José Luis González Meza and Juan Pablo Badillo They are in direct contact with those whom you designated for the repatriation of my dear son, Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, that is, the Secretaries of the Interior, Foreign Relations, Secretary of the Treasury and the Attorney General of the Republic, where all the evidence was provided 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 he should be, in a prison in Mexico “, it is read in the letter that is written in capital letters and misspellings.
“Unfortunately I have to inform you that the efforts of your Government to grant me a humanitarian visa to visit, only my sonJoaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera was denied to me by the North American Government.
I want to insist on your support so that I am allowed to visit my son, since my advanced age, 92 years, and the diseases that afflict me, as well as my great wishes to see him. Since I have more than 5 years without seeing it.
Hoping to continue counting on your support, I hope that our Lord Jesus Christ will enlighten you and fill you with blessings in that task that the people of Mexico assigned you.
Sincerely: María Consuelo Loera Pérez “, ends letter dated March 20, 2020, in Badiraguato, Sinaloa and signed by the mother of” El Chapo “.
This Sunday, the president traveled three and a half hours from the emblematic arch that announces the arrival in this municipality to go to the junction built by the Ministry of Communications and Transport (SCT) and which will communicate for the first time the states that make up the so-called Golden Triangle .
This region, called the “Golden Triangle”, where the states of Chihuahua, Durango and Sinaloa converge, is known for the planting of marijuana and poppy, a precursor of heroin; It is, therefore, the cradle of drug traffickers.
