Last week, a former Mexican
secretary of defense was arrested in Los Angeles, accused of helping in drug
trafficking and organized crime. Mexico’s president is demanding information
from the U.S. while questioning the DEA’s intervention in his country.

President Andrés Manuel López
Obrador said the arrest of Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos could help in his fight
against corruption.

He said his government will ask
the U.S. to provide details against the former secretary so he can be
prosecuted in Mexico.

López Obrador questioned the
DEA’s operations in his country, saying that no one in the past has stopped the
U.S. drug agency from breaking Mexico’s sovereignty. He also mentioned the
failed Fast and Furious gun-walking operation, conducted by the ATF during the
Obama administration.

López Obrador thanked President
Trump for helping Mexico without intrusiveness.

Cienfuegos was decorated for his
accomplishments two years ago by the U.S. government.
