The American-born son of the leader of the most powerful criminal organization in Mexico has tried to stop his extradition to the United States by presenting a birth certificate claiming that his father is not the kingpin – and he is the victim of a false identity.
Rubén Oseguera González, the son of Nemesio & # 39; El Mencho & # 39; Oseguera Cervantes, was accused in 2017 of two grounds for & # 39; conspiracy to distribute significant amounts of drugs for illegal import into the US & # 39;
The 29-year-old was also charged with & # 39; the use of firearms during and as retaliation for one or more drug offenses between 2007 and 2017 & # 39 ;.
He was detained with the Mexican authorities following an arrest in July 2015 and is being held at a maximum security facility in Hermosillo, Sonora. The US is fighting for its extradition.
During an extradition session, Oseguera Gonzalez – also known as El Menchito – argued that the person who appeared in the extradition request from the United States was not him.
He also claimed that he had a different date of birth and was born to Mexican parents – unrelated to the kingpin drug – in San Francisco, California.

In 2017, the US Department of Justice issued an arrest warrant against Rubén Oseguera González and imposed two counts on him, including drug trafficking and the illegal use of a weapon

As part of Oseguera González's attempt to have his extradition to the US thrown away by the Mexican court, his defense presented a forensic report claiming that the digital images presented by the US did not match El Menchito's photos. which were taken when he was transferred in February 2016 to Federal Social Readaptation Center No. 13 in Oaxaca.
A judge from the eighth district court in the state of Oaxaca, however, shot Oseguera González's request to have his extradition removed, because it had no value.
An additional investigation by the Attorney General's office revealed that there was a connection between facial features and the images of Oseguera González.
Oseguera González was transferred last week to a federal prison in Chiapas, where he stayed for two months, to the federal penitentiary in Hermosillo, Sonora, because he was a risk of escape.
Before he was transferred, a video from a Mexican gang showed that a conspiracy was underway to free him from the same prison where Joaquín & # 39; El Chapo & # 39; Guzmán fled in 2015.

Mexican authorities investigated the Jalisco New Generation Cartel when El Menchito was arrested outside his home on January 30, 2014. He was in possession of $ 1 million and a cache of weapons, including military guns.
But a judge signed his release and released him from arms charges on October 16, 2014, but he was arrested as soon as he walked out of jail by members of the Attorney General's Criminal Investigation Agency.
He was released on December 26, 2014 because there was insufficient evidence to accuse him of drug trafficking and to be the cartel leader.
Six months later he was arrested by the Mexican army and the federal police after a nose operation.
A judge released him on July 1 after he had ruled that prosecutors had imposed the same charges as for which he had already been acquitted and that his appropriate procedural rights were being violated.
But again, as he walked away, the authorities waited for him and reapplied El Menchito.
Federal prosecutors were given 40-day preventive detention and he was eventually accused in August 2015 as second commander behind El Mencho in the power structure of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel and money laundering.
Since then he has remained in custody.
On August 29, 2019, a judge ruled that Oseguera González was not guilty of involvement in organized crime and ordered his immediate release. But the authorities kept him behind bars on charges of money laundering and illegal possession of military weapons.
The father of Oseguera González is the most wanted man in Mexico and has a premium of $ 1.6 million on his head.
El Mencho is one of the 10 most wanted men on the FBI list and the US Department of Justice also offers a $ 10 million reward for his arrest.
According to the United States Drug Enforcement Agency, the El Mencho organization is active in 22 of 32 states in Mexico and has shipped cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and fentanyl heroin to the United States. It has also established that the group is present in Europe, Asia and Australia.
His gang wages several wars against hostile criminal groups, including the Sinaloa cartel, which was once led by Joaquín & # 39; El Chapo & # 39; Guzmán. It has also been involved in a number of cruel clashes with the Santa Rosa de Lima cartel, which has a major impact on the illegal sale of gasoline in Mexico.
