Source: Drug lord 'El Chapo's' daughter arrested at border

U.S. authorities have arrested a woman they believe is the daughter of Mexico's most-wanted drug lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, a federal source told CNN.

Alejandrina Gisselle Guzman Salazar was arrested Friday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at the international crossing at San Ysidro, California.

Guzman Salazar, who doesn't have legal documents to enter the United States, was caught trying to use a counterfeit visa to enter the country, according to a criminal complaint filed in the case.

She is pregnant and wanted to have her baby in the United States, the complaint said.

A federal official, who is not authorized to speak to the media and declined to be named, said that the woman is the daughter of the drug lord Guzman.

    When I read this my mind instantly went to Iraq and not our border.
    First off tho is I detest these Media soundbites that tell you mostly not a da...... thing.
    First off is the woman a participant in the illegal drug trade of her father and why would she be held if not.
    Incases where those who attempt to cross border at legal checkpoints if papers not in order all they do is refuse permission and turn them around.
    That they say alleged is pure horse puckys as in drug war pics and ingo down to what type of sanitary devices she purchases will be known and any and all vehicles tagged.
    "Why Iraq?
    When US invaded and fid not capture all 52 the jokers in their deck of cards on wanted men and women they immediately locked up any and all of their relatives.
    They held them incommunicado and advertized only way loved ones could free them is surrender.
    Do I think US under and with approval of Hillary and our Emporer would stoop thst low in the drug wars?
    Darn right I do!
    That the gun running issue by our Feds has caused hundreds of deaths is but tip of iceberg.

    Since the United States does not give citizenship to the newly born children of Diplomats here legally on duty in the service their Embassy or Consulate. Then children born to any ILLEGAL's who are here ILLEGALY should NEVER at any time be considered a US Citizen. US Citizenship must derived from a LEGAL status, Legal Permanent Resident Status, or Citizen Parent.

    Illegal Alien Anchor Babies are not citizens, nor legitimate residents.
