U.S. Says Mexican Drug Lord El Chapo Guzmán’s Prison Escape Could Trigger More Border Violence

Testifying before Congress last week, Robert Harris, the man in charge of border security at the Department of Homeland Security, warned that the recent escape of Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera, “could potentially instigate further border violence similar to incidents following his first prison escape in 2001.”

On July 11, Guzmán, one of the world’s most famous and powerful drug criminals, fled an alleged maximum-security prison near Mexico City through a tunnel built under his cell.
