• Escaped Mexican Drug Lord ‘El Chapo’ Sent His Wife to US to Give Birth

    Mexico’s billionaire drug lord, who escaped from a maximum security prison for the second time on Saturday, sent his pregnant wife to the United States to ensure that his children would be American citizens.

    Joaquin Guzman, known as ‘El Chapo,’ the head of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel, escaped Altiplano jail through a sophisticated mile-long tunnel system.

    The tunnel led to a building under construction next to the prison – from where he collected clothes left for him by his conspirators.

    Guzman also escaped from a high-security prison in 2001 with the help of prison guards.

    He married beauty queen Emma Coronel and started a family during his time in hiding.

    Emma Coronel’s father was also a drug lord notorious for upping the use of crystal meth across the world and was known  as “The King of Crystal.” He was killed in a shoot-out with the Mexican army.

    Emma Coronel was born in California and is a U.S. citizen. Guzman sent her to California to give birth so that their daughters would be U.S. citizens too.

    Coronel gave birth to twin girls on Aug. 15, 2011, in LA County. Federal immigration officials kept tabs on Emma but couldn’t arrest her because they had no formal charges to file, so had to let her go free.

    Guzman was finally tracked down in February 2014 at a beachside high-rise in the Pacific Coast resort city of Mazatlan, where he had been hiding with his beauty-queen wife and twin daughters.

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump had said Guzman embodies ‘everything that is wrong with Mexico’ and said he would ‘kick his ass.’

    Guzman has gloated on Twitter about his escape from jail by taunting authorities and threatening  Trump.

    ‘If you keep p*ssing me off I’m going to make you eat your words you f***ing blonde milk-sh****,” the fugitive wrote.

    In Mexico, a milk-s*** is a homophobic slur.

    Trump is taking the threat seriously and has called in the FBI to investigate the source of the Twitter account.
