A controversial Mexican drug informant who has provided critical information to U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to soon be extradited to Mexico by U.S. officials, according to the Dallas Morning News. Guillermo Eduardo Ramírez Peyro, a.k.a. “Lalo,” lost a bid to seek asylum and faces extradition, according to two U.S. officials who spoke with the Morning News on condition of anonymity.
The informant is believed to have taken part in several killings for a Mexican drug cartel while working as a U.S.-paid informant. Critics say that he occupied a position of power in the Mexican drug trade and was not merely a spectator in criminal activity, as agency officials have claimed.
