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.

    Strange but maybe not true? If a drug lord worth billions couldn't buy legitimate papers for his daughter to enter the US something is just wrong with that picture!

      I agree. It could be one of Obama's schemes. This will give him something to brag about at the debate tonight. I bet this young lady is just someone they randomly picked up or a CIA agent helping garner Obama a few more Hispanic votes.

    I agree 100 percent. Obama has to worry about being on Letterman and other talk shows and repairing the feud between arguing American Idol judges.

    Does anybody realize just how many Mexicans bear the last name Guzman, or Rodriguez, or whatever?
    If this dude without a shadow of a doubt knows this girl is daughter of a drug lord, then they must know where the drug lords at. If they know where he's at, why don't they shut him down?
