Zetas founder 'El Hummer' confirmed ready for U.S. extradition after decade-long process

 "MX" for Borderland Beat

Los Zetas founding member Jaime Gonzalez Duran ("El Hummer") is ready to be extradited to the U.S., where he faces drug trafficking charges. This announcement was confirmed by a Mexican federal judge who revoked a motion issued by El Hummer's defense that intended to halt his extradition.

Although El Hummer was arrested nearly 12 years ago, authorities have been unable to extradite him to the U.S. His extradition process began in 2015 and has been filled with motions, suspensions and delays.

Should El Hummer be extradited, he would be one of the highest-ranking Zetas members to ever face trial in the U.S. The highest-ranking Zetas member imprisoned in the U.S. today is Jesus Enrique Rejon Aguilar ("El Mamito"), who was also a founding member.

Background

El Hummer was a violent cartel leader and is the suspect in the murder of the famous band singer Valentine Elizalde. Known as one of the most bloodthirsty Zetas, he was born in the tiny humble town of Xolmón, in the municipality of Aquismón, San Luis Potosí.  At the time Xolmón had a population of less than 500, all indigenous people.

He joined the Mexican Army as a young adult and was part of the Special Forces Airborne Group (GAFE). He received specialized training by U.S. forces and the Israeli Defense Force.

After seven years of service, he defected and joined the Gulf Cartel under Osiel Cardenas Guillen, becoming one of the first members of its newly formed paramilitary wing, Los Zetas.

Like El Hummer, most of the first members of Los Zetas were ex-military. Los Zetas was responsible for providing security services to Cárdenas Guillén and carrying out executions on the cartel's behalf. Their role in organized crime increased over the years after they became involved in drug trafficking and territory expansion.

El Hummer was the former plaza boss of Reynosa, Tamaulipas, one of the Gulf Cartel's most lucrative turfs. In 2008, he was arrested and has been in prison ever since.

Case

The extradition of El Hummer has been a headache case for Mexican and U.S. officials. From 2008 to 2015, El Hummer was imprisoned in Mexico without a formal extradition request from the U.S.

In November 2015, a federal judge halted his extradition and allowed El Hummer to file an appeal. This action was a surprise for the Mexican Foreign Ministry and the U.S. government because they had already agreed to send him to the U.S., as reported by Borderland Beat.

In March 2019, his extradition was okayed by the Mexican government once again, but El Hummer was able to get a motion approved in May that temporarily halted his extradition, as reported by Borderland Beat. Another Mexican federal judge gave the "green light" to extradite him to the U.S. that November, but this motion was suspended again in 2020.

  2. So he gets extradicted. Does this mean to cut a deal and serve 10 years then get released with a new identity into a nice neighborhood near you? Place your bets people.

  5. Great, now can we get Z-40 extradited here as well? Those 'mugrosos' should never see the light of day again.

    1. Z-40 and the rest will be extradited once:
      - they have run out of money to pay for bribes
      - the information they sit on is old and cannot hurt anybody in power anymore

  6. El día que definitivamente quieran los estadunidenses acabar con los Antifa's o cualquier otro grupo antagonista. A estos chavos lacrosos conviene contratar los para sentar los de un solo putazo. Mínimo que sirvan para algo en vez de tener los presos ocupando espacio y sin propósito.

    1. Antifa is not a group it is an ideology. Study fascism, Fransico Franco Bahamonde 1939-195.

    2. ANTIFA is a pacific resistance from Coast to Coast, but some members have less patience than others when it comes to suffering fools gladly, tie bandanas to locker padlocks and hit loud mouth neo-nazis and vigilantes on the snout...

      Delete
    3. Usually Sol you say some interesting things. Sometimes its bullshit, but I would t point out what is and isn't. However, never let someone convince you that Antifa is a group. It's an ideology. Because at the end; what good does it do to gave a government that's just as corrupt as all the other ones?

      Delete
    4. Francisco franco, the fascist who did not fight with his congenerate german nazis and italian fascists but dedicated his military to murdering his own countrymen deserves no studying, Picasso's painting about franco's butchery deserves interest, franco deserves an indictment even if he is dead.
      His heir in the Legion del Rey still sing "soy el novio de la muerte" ooke the nazis and the chileans, it was the favorite song of murdering banana republic dictator pinochet

    5. 11:32 "Antifa is not a group...study fascism" lmao
      They have uniforms, flags, slogans, and riot in large GROUPS.They also demand people conform to their ideology,or else. New fascists, same lunacy.

      Delete
    6. Uniforms and flags don't make a group.

    7. Whenever 2 people or more gather anywhere for whatever reason. That right there is a group. It doesn’t get any easier than that when it comes to explaining actual facts. Simple! Now the ideology for these individuals matters not. They all fall under an umbrella. And unfortunately that umbrella will be used against them.

  7. Does anyone know if the original Zeta members that has not gotten killed or jailed still active???, like El Erotico, & Carlos Vela, Gonzalo Escibano, Eduardo Gonzalez, Ybarra Yippis, George Lopez. Just a few of the originals possibly more that kept low profile.

    1. Some are fugitives. Including don zefe who lives abroad. Pinche gobierno mexicano le valió verga.

    2. Look so the rumor is some of them went abroad. Chuta was rumored in Italy and Algeria. The guy was old school as fuck since he was around in the 70s and 80s PRIOR to becoming Zeta. BB wrote about him a while back. He definitely had some dirt war tactics under his sleeve and enough experience to go rogue forever. He moved heavy loads for Italian mafia groups and probably stayed in Europe.

      Same goes for the rest. Dead. Or under an alias. I don’t think any of them are active. The new generation displayed them and we would have heard from them already.

    1. He was among the worst. He was nuts the stories I've read about him. Putting a pistol to z42s head and threaten to pull the trigger in front of z40 over some guy under Hummer that had lost a load. He would chop up his own friends alive for screw ups.

      He was as bad as Lazca or 40 IMO

      Delete
    2. Sounds true because that might also explan why Z40 has so much hate for old school golfos and Zs

      Delete
    3. No one was bad as Lazca,he was the ideology behind the Zetas,he was the Z

    4. 10:32 our resident psychic. You should offer your psychic services to the police if indeed you are that good in judging personality and psychoses from a mere picture; come on, really, get a grip. What, you once read a book on psychology, and now you are the guru of nonsense, geez? The Hummer is psycho like you have never thought a human could be.

  9. All past issues with extradition brought to you by the most corrupt judiciary on the American continent, and they get paid very well for it, their salaries at the top of the ladder are higher than any other judiciary on the continent, yes, and then of course the other extra funding and perks. Let us all rejoice in the wonderful system of justice these justices have brought to us poor Mexicans.

    1. 10:33 the mexican supreme court is the best supreme court the US capitalist system could give the mexican people, let's not forget they have impossed presidents since they stole the Mexican Revolution and they all do their best not to rock the boat or upend the apple cart, until AMLO and his people stole the last presidential election (again after 5 tries nullified by accomplices of salinas and EPN and FECAL) this time
      with help of "E loro de Mo'ckú", according to javier "el perro cagatwitters" lozano...
