The missive reports that her team of lawyers followed his directions and the cabinet provided evidence … where it is clear that my son was illegally transferred to the United States government. Nothing would make me and my family happier to see him where you should be in a prison in Mexico. ‘
Lera also informed the Mexican leader that the U.S. government had rejected its request for a humanitarian visa, which was submitted to the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City in June 2019.

She also asked the left-wing president to reflect on “the illness that is bothering me and my great desire to see him [El Chapo]. I have been more than five years without seeing him. ‘
