Notorious drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman convicted

Ted Cruz has come up with an unlikely solution of his own to pay for the President's much-touted wall: make recently convicted Mexican drug lord El Chapo pay for it.

Guzman, whose nickname means "Shorty" in Spanish, will not be formally sentenced until June 25, though prosecutors said they expect him to receive a life sentence without the chance of parole.

Guzman, one of the major figures in Mexican drug wars that have roiled the country since 2006, become nearly legendary for escaping from Mexican high-security jails twice and avoiding massive manhunts.

"There's more people that want everything that El Chapo controlled".

While federal authorities have not said for certain where El Chapo will be housed, he is staring at "a sentence from which there is no escape and no return", said U.S. attorney Richard Donoghue.

"One of them-Francisco Camberos Rivera, known as El Chito, or the Silent One-opened the door to El Chapo's cell and helped him climb into a cart of dirty laundry", Time reported. "El Chapo jumped out of the cart and leaped into the trunk of a Chevrolet Monte Carlo".

Martin Horn, a professor of corrections at City University of New York's John Jay College of Criminal Justice said of Guzman: "There's a high likelihood that he would end up at ADX Florence given his history of escaping and his ability to compromise corrections staff in Mexico".

ADX has special restrictions in place created to ensure some inmates have no way to project influence beyond prison walls. 'As a defense lawyer, if I start being concerned with what people are accused of and what they're convicted of, I'll never be able to get out of bed in the morning'.

Inmates are held in specially designed "control units" that function as prisons within prisons.

Inside their cell, the most highly guarded inmates have a television with content created to provide them with education, psychological help and religious services, the report said.

Some others expressed sadness at the news of Guzman's conviction in a far-away NY federal courtroom. He hopes El Chapo's conviction will cause those drug lords to feel a little uneasy.

Guzman, 59, was found guilty of 10 charges, including running a criminal enterprise, by jurors following a three-month trial in NY on Tuesday.
