Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat Reforma
Humanitarian Visa Application was denied by the U.S.
After asking him for help to repatriate her son and to process a humanitarian visa that would allow him to travel to the United States, Consuelo Loera Pérez, mother of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, sent blessings to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, whom she called “Dear brother in Christ”.
Letter from El Chapo’s mother dated March 20,2020
“In the hope of continuing to count on your support, I wish that our Lord Jesus Christ illuminate you and fill you with blessings in this task that the people of Mexico have assigned you,” says the letter that was delivered yesterday to the federal president, during a visit made in Badiraguato, Sinaloa, the birthplace of the Guzmán family.
In the letter, dated March 20 of this year, the mother of the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel requests the help of the Federal President to facilitate her son serving his sentence in a Mexican prison.
“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 jail in Mexico,” she said.
She is requesting the intervention of the federal government so that the immigration authorities of the United States allow her to travel and visit her son, via a humanitarian visa.
“Unfortunately I have to inform you that the efforts of your government to grant me a humanitarian visa to visit only my son Joaquín Archibaldo Guzmán Loera, was denied to me by the US government,” he said.
“I want to ask for your support so that I am allowed to visit my son since at my advanced age 92 years and the diseases that afflict me as well as my great desire to see him. Since it has been more than five years without seeing him.”
AMLO ready to help
In the document, the woman reveals that the family’s lawyers have kept in touch with the secretaries of the Interior, Foreign Relations and Finance, as well as with personnel from the Attorney General’s Office to deliver evidence that allows “El Chapo” come back to Mexico.
“Our lawyers, José Luis González Meza and Juan Pablo Mandillo, are in direct contact with who you appointed for the repatriation of my dear son,” he said.
This morning, the President reported that he is ready to take steps with the United States Government to help Guzmán’s mother obtain a visa.
