The chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security is encouraging Mexico’s authorities to extradite drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman (wah-KEEN’ el chah-poh gooz-MAHN’) to the United States to ensure he remains behind bars.
Guzman was arrested Saturday morning in the resort city of Mazatlan, Mexico.
