On Friday, October 12, Paola Ortega (DOB January 8, 1981), holding a Mexican Passport with a (counterfeit) US visa attempted to enter the United States at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. It turns out that Paola Ortega was actually Alejandrina Gisselle Guzman Salazar (DOB October 15, 1981). She spent her thirty-first birthday at the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown San Diego in the protective custody lock-up.
|She looks very much like her father.|
Up to this point, nobody cares, but she's the daughter of the prime narcotics kingpin in Mexico, Joaquin Guzman Loera (El Chapo), and that makes all the difference as far as USGOV is concerned.
El Chapo has several wives, one of whom, Emma Coronel Aispuro legally entered the US last year and had twin children, now US Citzens. After the babies were born, they returned to Mexico with their mother.
As usual, the San Diego bar is scrambling for the case. Early in the business, Juan Carlos Magana hired Guadalupe Valencia, who publicized the arrest. Then, angry with Valencia, he fired him and hired Jan Ronis, another narco-attorney based in San Diego, who is famous for selling his clients who cooperate with the government out to the cartels -- who kill them. And remarkably, Ronis is still alive after a lifetime of treachery. Who would have guessed he'd survive this long? Will Ronis be the last attorney on this case? Unlikely.
Will Alejandrina be released on bond? Also unlikely. Will her daughter be born in custody and become a US Citizen? Very likely. And after all, that's why she crossed the border, isn't it?
