Mexico extradites Ovidio Guzmán López

Mexico extradited Ovidio Guzmán López, son of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán, to the United States on Friday. Mexican security forces captured Guzmán López, 'the Mouse,' in January in Culiacan. The resulting violence killed 30.
U.S. prosecutors unsealed sprawling indictments against Guzmán and his brothers, known collectively as the 'Chapitos.' It seems only a matter of time before Ovidio Guzmán López joins his father at Florence AdMax for life.

A federal judge in Mexico City had granted a stay halting extradition proceedings against Ovidio Guzmán. At a hearing held in Altiplano prison in México state, Guzmán was officially remanded to pretrial detention and the judge granted the U.S. 60 days to file documentation on the charges he will face if extradited. It could be a long time before Guzman touches US soil. Biden was in Mexico City and had a meeting with Mexican President López Obrador.
The federal government has advised Canadians in Mexico to limit their movements and shelter in place due to violence raging in the western part of the country. Ottawa said the violence is fierce in Culiacan, Mazatlan, Los Mochis and Guasave. Guzman was spirited away to Mexico City. Its said 19 have died thus far.
 Ovidio Guzman, son of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman grew in importance after the arrest of his father. He was arrested temporarily by Mexican cops in October 2019. Gunmen started shooting weapons in the city, and Ovidio Guzman was released.
Cars were set on fire and residents were carjacked by cartel members in the city of Culiacan in Sinaloa province.
