Mexico has a huge problem with drug cartels.These cartels have played a part in turning Mexico into one of the most violent countries in the world. One cartel leader, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, has embarrassed Mexican authorities by escaping from prison at least 2 times.

The US wants El Chapo to be extradited to America, which is something drug traffickers like him greatly fear will happen to them. They know it is highly unlikely that they would ever be able to bribe or threaten their way out of an American prison. So, being sent to America means a long, perhaps life, sentence, in conditions where their wealth will not allow them to live inside prison almost as good as they lived when they were free.

Yet, "A Mexican judge has issued an injunction that could send drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman from a prison in a border state back to the maximum security prison from which he previously escaped outside Mexico City, one of his lawyers said late Wednesday."

This makes no sense at all. If Mexico really wants to punish El Chapo, which should help lessen the amount of violence happening there, then he should not be sent back to the same prison from which he previously escaped. Instead he needs to be sent to the USA, where his vast wealth and willingness to use violence will be much less likely to help him gain freedom.

Mexican and American authorities need to work together by making intelligent decisions if there is ever to be any hope of one day ridding the world of drug traffickers like El Chapo. However, there is no chance of that ever happening if either side makes stupid decisions, such as deciding to send a wealthy and cunning criminal back to the same prison from which he once escaped.

Well, if you'd ask me, I'd send all drug traffickers to the garbage island in the middle of Pasific Ocean. They'd live happily ever after.
