WASHINGTON - The man charged with the murder of an ICE special agent is extradited from Mexico to the United States.

Julian Zapata Espinoza, also known as "Piolin," has been extradited from Mexico to the United States to face charges for his alleged participation in the murder of U.S. ICE Special Agent Jaime Zapata and the attempted murder of ICE Special Agent Victor Avila on Feb. 15, 2011, in Mexico.

"The extradition and charges filed against Zapata Espinoza is an important step in bringing Jaime and Victor's alleged shooters to justice," said ICE Director Morton.

On April 19, 2011, a federal grand jury in the District of Columbia returned a four-count indictment against Zapata Espinoza, charging him with one count of murder of an officer or employee of the United States, for the murder of ICE Special Agent Zapata; one count of attempted murder of an officer or employee of the United States and one count of attempted murder of an internationally protected person, both for the attempted murder of ICE Special Agent Avila; and one count of using, carrying, brandishing and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence causing death.

ICE, DEA, CIA and who knows how many other U.S. government agencies with more than a handfull of people work in Mexico and they still cannot capture "El Chapo" Guzman from Sinaloa Cartel. DEA even vaguely admitting to helping El Chapo with operation "Fast and Furious" as well as with money laundering (and they claim to be fighting a war on drugs). The U.S. should instead focus on punishing drug users more harshly here in this country to help deter more people from using/trying drugs.
