The Drug Kingpin “El Chapo” Guzman has been delivered to the US ahead of schedule. Guzman is notorious for breaking out of Mexican prisons and managing a large trafficking organization.

According to an official who spoke with CNN, Mexican authorities were eager to turn over Guzman before Trump took office. Officials in Mexico are still angered over Trump’s insistence that they pay for a wall.

Guzman will face charges in a federal courtroom in Brooklyn on Friday, although the trial will be held at a later date. Security around the Manhattan jail was ramped up to deal with the high-profile inmate.
