Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat TY Gus FoxSanAntonio

SAN ANTONIO — Ovidio Guzman Lopez was on the DEA's Most Wanted List, like his father "El Chapo" Guzman and his brothers, but after a brief arrest Ovidio Guzman Lopez is free again in Mexico. Fox San Antonio reports in this week's On the Frontlines with the DEA, this doesn't change anything for the new Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration. I sat down with Uttam Dhillon, head of the DEA, in his first exclusive interview in San Antonio, since taking the job.
With the current power struggle in Mexico for the plazas, we asked Dhillon how this is affecting the amount and types of drugs that are coming in the country through Texas. These were the images just a few weeks ago when El Chapo's son was arrested in the state of Sinaloa. But that arrest didn't last long, citing the safety of the residents of Culiacan Mexico, where he was arrested, the Mexican government released Guzman even though he is not only wanted in Mexico, but is on the DEA's most wanted list for trafficking drugs.

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

VH1 executives confirmed Monday that Emma Coronel Aispuro will be making several appearances and is expected to open up “about her life after El Chapo,” as well as her business venture.

I don’t know if you have seen the VH1 series “Cartel Crew”.  I took a look when it came out and couldn’t stomach even one episode.

For me it is reminiscent of the Real Housewives or other reality shows….but not as good.

The over the top self-absorbed behavior is off-putting as is the cartel glorification. 

The “crew” says it was Emma Coronel’s attorney who approached the series about her joining.  No doubt the interest will climb.  The docuseries is framed around 8 offspring from the cartel life, and a glimpse into their world as they pilot through adulthood.
