A woman believed to be the daughter of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman has been deported to Mexico after admitting that she tried to enter the U.S. using a fraudulent visa.
Alejandrina Gisselle Guzman-Salazar, 31, was arrested in October at the San Ysidro port of entry after presenting to U.S. officers the forged visa of another person.
Guzman Salazar, who was pregnant at the time of her arrest, allegedly told U.S. authorities that she was en route to Los Angeles to give birth to her child.
Under terms of her plea agreement reached Monday, a federal judge sentenced Guzman Salazar to time already served since her arrest on Oct. 12. She was deported on Tuesday to Tijuana.
Guzman Salazar, who was eight months pregnant upon her release, claimed to be the daughter of the world’s most wanted drug trafficker during questioning, according to a high-ranking U.S. law enforcement official.
Her alleged connection to the drug kingpin didn’t play a role in the U.S. government’s handling of the case, according to Guzman Salazar’s attorneys.“The government, to their credit, treated her at the end of the day like any other person in the same situation,” said one of her attorneys, Guadalupe Valencia.“There was no evidence that she was involved in anything but this documents case.”
Last year, Joaquin Guzman's wife, Emma Coronel, was driven through the Calexico border crossing to the Los Angeles suburb of Lancaster, where she gave birth to twin girls at Antelope Valley Hospital. A former beauty queen, Coronel is a U.S. citizen and was not wanted by authorities.
