https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/12/nyregion/el-chapo-verdict.htmlThe Mexican crime lord known as El Chapo was convicted on Tuesday after a three-month drug trial in New York that exposed the inner workings of his sprawling cartel, which over decades shipped tons of drugs into the United States and plagued Mexico with relentless bloodshed and corruption.
Only surprise is that it took the jury over a week to come to the verdict.
Just saw this,
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/cruz-urges-senate-to-pass-bill-to-make-el-chapo-drug-lords-pay-for-border-wall/ar-BBTvuSKCruz's Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act would take any money forfeited to the U.S. by Guzmán and other drug lords as a result of criminal prosecutions and direct those funds toward "border security assets" and the completion of a border wall.
I think this is a great idea that should be passed by congress.
