El Chapo Is On A Plane To The United States Right Now
Notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is currently being extradited to the United States from a Mexican prison.
A spokesperson for the Mexican Attorney General confirmed to ABC News that Guzman was "in the air" on Thursday. It's not yet known where in the U.S. the murderous former head of Mexico's Sinaloa cartel is headed. We can only hope it's somewhere secure, given El Chapo's track record for stunning escapes.
The Mexican Foreign Ministry approved the U.S.'s request to extradite Guzman in May.
CBS New foreign affairs and White House correspondent Margaret Brennan tweeted that the timing of the extradition was a "goodwill gesture from Mexico to the incoming & outgoing administrations."
