El Chapo's Security Chief 'El Cholo Iván' Is Close to US Extradition

"MX" for Borderland Beat

Jorge Iván Gastélum Ávila and/or Orso Iván Gastélum Cruz, alias "El Cholo Ivan".
Jorge Iván Gastelum Avila, alias "El Cholo Iván", the former security chief of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, is closed to being extradited to the United States. 

A tribunal court in the State of Mexico announced this week that they refused to revert the extradition request issued against El Cholo Ivan.

According to court records, the US government issued the extradition request in May 2020. El Cholo Ivan was notified of this request two months later and was given 60 days to appeal. After his attorneys issued multiple motions, a federal court notified the US Embassy that they had approved his extradition on November 2020.

But El Cholo Ivan's defense team continued to appeal and sent their case to a tribunal court for a final decision. This week's announcement virtually sets El Cholo Ivan on a clear path to US extradition. 

Background 

Jorge Ivan Gastelum Cruz, better known as El Cholo Ivan, was one of the 122 priority objectives of the Mexican government. He was born in May 17, 1981, in the small town of Los Caballeros, in the municipality of Badiraguato, Sinaloa.

According to official information, he became involved in organized crime at the age of 14 by collecting cartel plaza payments, by orders of his dad, Honorio Gastelum Avila, alias "El Cobra", who was reportedly a hitman working for El Chapo.

Over the years, El Cholo Ivan also became a hitman and was later promoted to one of the top leadership roles in Culiacan.

In August 2005, he was arrested by federal agents in Culiacan. He escaped from prison in 2009 by walking out of the main entrance while the guards were hosting a party.

He was accused of the murder of two Sinaloa state cops in 2009 as an act of vengeance because those two officers were accused of killing his father.

In November 2012, the Mexican Army killed his girlfriend Maria Susana Flores Games in a shootout. She was a former beauty pageant in Sinaloa.

El Cholo Ivan was arrested in 2016 along with El Chapo and has been in prison ever since.

    1. Chapo Isidro has always been in those plazas no one pushed him out

    2. I agree with you this guy was a major problem..he raised hell on behalf of Chapo..I remember the stories about him back then he was definitely on a upward trajectory within the sinaloa Cartel no doubt he would’ve been a powerful faction leader/trafficker at this point had he no been arrested with Chapo another guy I remember from that time was dos Letras i think from BLO pretty sure he did a in depth interview that was posted here..anyway does anyone know whatever happened to that guy?

    7. 6:07 Yes he did just remember where El Chapo was kicking it when he got arrested and I believe he got Mochis back as part of the truce agreement

    8. El dos letras, got killed back in 2014. He was some what related to my family. I would always hear stories about him when I would go down to a town called cortinez. He was from estacion naranjo. He was also known as Chilo or el 02. He had some plazas locked down in Nayarit before all the bs war started and that when he came and cleaned plaza in Sinaloa with Isidro and Gonzales.

      Delete
    9. Pushed out? This guy is locked up on the verge of being extradited and Isidro is free.

    10. @7:32 didn't the dude who killed Macaco get killed shortly after?

    1. Most Mexicans don’t read or understand English, so no. But BB does have some readers from states like Jalisco, Zacatecas, Tamaulipas, Chihuahua, Sonora, Nuevo León. Etc.

    6. Ok guys do you understand Maguey was sold by his own people and is fighting against his own cousin "La Mancha" from what he said at Sargys?

      Sooner or later he will be whacked and I respect the dude but it was a case of wrong place wrong time. This administration is systematically whacking CJNG at most places or allowing it to happen - plaza wise -.

      Maguey should retire from the game but he might die fighting.

    7. YEAH I WAS BEING SARCASTIC MYSELF, AHY MAGUEY PARATO.

    8. It also goes to show, carteles unidos are a bunch of fucken idiots. Maguey was literally out numbered 3 vs 200 and they still couldn't make any significant impact? Other than loot destroy and kill 7 females including a 4 years old girl. Sad, but what was most important to the media(including bb) was the staged kidnapping of "el kiro" and his supposed rescue. Nobody bothered reporting the innocent victims,
      Maguey said it himself, if he wouldve kidnapped kiro he wouldve beheaded him instantly.

    9. @11:05 so between 5-10 people, including his cousin, of the group turned bitch over the offer of 1million pesos to betray him like Judas Iscariot. He and several others survive an internal betrayal and an overwhelming attack by the contras to kill him and take over Buenavista and now he should retire from being a pistolero? It doesn't work that way. Those traitors are shitting themselves. Tepeques were getting rained on. The maricones from Los Reyes know what's lurking. You must be referring to Silvanos administration. How many days until he's no longer the governor?

    12. @1:01 El Kiro holds no importance for me. You obviously have that all wrong. Other media’s might have went with his predicament for your supposed logic. But the overall reason I put it up was not because of your misinformed presumption. Things are being done for free here, that should give you an idea of what distinguishes media capitalist sellouts from volunteers.

    13. Dude ain’t no pistolero he’s pretty much under Delta1&M2 in Michoacán.

      By the way Esquivel called everything that was gonna happened to chapo using common sence, and he also said chapo wasnt the real boss, he said mayo was but since the usa needed a scape goat chapo was gonna get what he got, read some of his ahit and learn a little bit more about cartels, he aint taking sides, he also called what was gonna happen to la negra before the sentence and guess what? He was right and now he is calling what is gonna happen to emma, i guess we will see, mean time i rather believe him more than you 😉 no hard feelings 👍
