US deports Gulf Cartel kingpin back to Mexico

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in El Paso deported former Gulf Cartel kingpin José Manuel Garza Rendón back to Mexico, handing him to Mexican federal authorities across the international bridge with Ciudad Juárez April 10. Garza Rendón had already served a nine-year term in a US federal prison in West Texas for conspiracy to distribute marijuana. He has been wanted in Mexico since 2002 on charges of organized crime, attempted murder and possession of firearms that can be legally used exclusively by the Mexican army. (Reuters, April 11)
