A lawyer who has worked on behalf of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is trying a novel legal tactic: He is calling on U.S. President Donald Trump to deport the Mexican drug lord back residence from his jail cell in the United States.
Lawyer Jose Luis Gonzalez Meza held up a banner outside the Mexican Lawyer General's Workplace in the capital Wednesday that study: "Mr. Trump, Deport the illegal and criminal Chapo Guzman."
Trump has pledged to deport migrants who have committed illegal acts.
Gonzalez Meza mentioned Mexican prosecutors violated due procedure when they extradited Guzman in January.
"That signifies he is in the United States illegally," the lawyer stated. "We are going to ask he be returned, simply because he is illegal and criminal!"
Guzman faces U.S. drug trafficking, income laundering and other charges. He has pleaded not guilty.
