- Consuelo Loera is seeking help from the United States to visit her son, Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, in jail
- The 90-year-old woman hopes Mexican President Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador will intervene and seek El Chapo’s repatriation
- Her wish is for El Chapo to serve his jail sentence in a Mexican penitentiary
- Last Tuesday, a jury at a New York federal court found the former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel guilty on 10 counts
- El Chapo is slated to be sentenced June 25 when all sides convene in court
El Chapo’s mother is seeking assistance from the United States government and Mexico’s president in a bid to see her son once again.
She also held out hope that the jailed drug baron can be repatriated to his native land and serve his sentence in a Mexican jail.
Consuelo Loera, 90, remained optimistic about the prospect of visiting Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, 61, who last Tuesday was found guilty of all 10 charges, bringing an end to a trial that lasted three months in a Brooklyn, New York, federal court.
‘Of course, I miss him a lot and I want to see him,’ Loera told Univision on Friday while she sat inside her SUV in the middle of a road connecting the drug kingpin’s birthplace of La Tuna with Badiraguato in the state of Sinaloa.
In an interview with Univision, Consuelo Loera (pictured) said she wants to travel to the United States to visit her son, Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán, and hopes Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador will intervene and open a process with the United States government that could allow the former leader Sinaloa Cartel to serve his jail sentence in his native land

‘My request is that they allow me to go and see him, and that he is transferred here to México.’
Loera was also looking forward to a personal meeting Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to inquire about the possibility of returning El Chapo to Mexico. The former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, who twice escaped Mexican prisons, was extradited to the U.S. in January 2017.
The Mexican president paid a visit to La Tuna on Friday to El Chapo’s old turf and met with villagers seeking peace and willing to strengthen his commitment to a town that benefited from the world’s most famous drug dealer.
But Loera reconsidered her idea of meeting with him.
‘I have the faith and confidence that he will do something for my son,’ she said.
Loera is the second family member who has publicly come forward to publicly petition the U.S. judicial system – and even President Donald Trump – for assistance in visiting El Chapo.
Rosa Isela Guzmán, is currently one of three people – the others are her seven-year-old twin sisters – who can visit El Chapo while he is behind bars.
‘Of course, I miss him a lot and I want to see him. My request is that they allow me to go and see him, and that he is transferred here to Mexico,’ Loera (pictured) told Univision in an exclusive interview just three days after her son, El Chapo, was found guilty
Prosecutors revealed El Chapo (pictured) built a $14 billion fortune, and was responsible for 33 murders and trafficking more than 220 tons of cocaine
The frail mother said she would also require a special permit for a relative to accompany her.
‘I need someone to go with me because I almost can’t walk and I need help, a trustworthy person, a family member to go with me,’ Loera said.
Prosecutors said El Chapo built a $14 billion fortune, and was responsible for 33 murders and trafficking more than 220 tons of cocaine as well as vast quantities of other drugs to America, Europe and the rest of the world.
El Chapo will likely be sentenced to life in jail when all parties convene in court June 25.
‘He tells us that he’s fine,’ Loera said. ‘I hope… that he will be very willing, that he will ask God to help him and get out of that place.’
