Skip to comments.Mexico might try to put the El Paso shooter on trial. The U.S. is unlikely to hand him over.

Eight Mexicans were among the 22 victims of Saturdays mass shooting in El Paso, and Mexico is now exploring an unusual legal recourse: seeking the extradition of an American for a crime carried out on American soil.
Mexico has long used legal action to resolve international disputes, analysts say, but requesting the extradition of an American is unlikely to succeed as long as U.S. authorities continue pursuing a criminal case against the 21-year-old suspected shooter.

Let’s “extradite” all the Mexicans here back home.
Why would we hand him over when they have no death penalty?
Have you SEEN their prisons? He’d last longer on Death Row in America than he would in a Mexican prison.
Stupid political stunt.
Just a thought here, but how about turning him over to the families of the victims. Some frontier justice might be a better deterrent. Maybe some of those Mexicans killed have cartel relatives?
I have seen several stories here in the recent past of Americans who were murdered in Mexico. I don’t think they even caught the suspects.
Ballsy move considering that the Mexican Constitution PROHIBITS extraditing their citizens to the US.
Well, given that thanks to Obomba and Holder they have many AR styled weapons, I think that would work. Hopefully after they take about 24 hours with him with a blow torch and pliers to make sure he had no accomplices. Maybe we could program him to say that Hitlery and he were close, just a thought.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. The judge overseeing the trial of suspected Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz said she wants his high-profile trial to start on Jan. 20, 2020.
The shooting was February 14,2018
The trail should have been one week later..and then hanged from a tree
That way these fools might think twice..
No death penalty in Mexico.................
I COULD be convinced to support extradition of that twatface patsy with full US media coverage - day by day.
That’s probably because the only way they will hand over murderers that have killed in the US and fled to Mexico is if the Death Penalty is not permitted. They probably want him kept alive for whatever reason.
Why are they sending their citizens across our border to be shot? Mexico won’t send one of their citizens who committed murder in the US back to the US because of the chance of the death penalty.
They probably would make an exception cause he murdered their citizens that probably weren’t supposed to be here. By the way this killer doesn’t look like a “white” guy. Maybe there’s self loathing going on?
SOP is for Mexico to indict and THEN the US to complete our US trial of the perp. After our trial is complete and sentence announced, then we turn him over to Mexico for their trial.
Why were they in the US? El Paso isn’t a resort town. I was watching a clip the other day of some propaganda where they were interviewing a kid that saved his mom. Had him all dressed up in a suit. Didn’t speak a syllable of English. But I guess we’re all paying for his house, utilities, school breakfast and lunch, doctor & hospital visits, and who knows what else and I’ll be a betting man and say that he is one of at least a few in the house. All this while his mother or whoever waits for their asylum hearing. But maybe his mom gave birth to a US citizen in an El Paso hospital so they never have to leave. Ain’t it great.
Mexico wants to bring charges. Stop every single Section 8 check, EBT, SNAP, TANF and everything else and drive them all back to where they came from.
Trump should honor this request. Or at least pretend to honor it. This creep wouldnt last an hour in a Mexican Jail. The Mexican cops would beat the Hell out of him, shoot him a dozen times and call it a suicide.
This could be considered a budget saving measure.
Not recently they haven't. And even if they were, by the time the appeals process is over, most of the families affected will be dead from old age. In Mexico justice would be swift, if not just. Just sayin.
Obviously a non-starter, but I would be fine if they want to send a Liaison (with no legal authority) to represent, advocate, communicate, and advise on behalf of the Mexican families. Once convicted, throw him in a cell block controlled by Mexican cartels and gangs. He wouldn’t last long there...
