100 Fugitives Surrendered in 2009 to the United States, Breaks Record

WASHINGTON, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Mexican government has
extradited 11 defendants to face trial in the United States, the Justice
Department announced today.  The defendants are accused of various crimes,
including murder, sex offenses, drug trafficking and money laundering in
Texas, Washington, Florida, Indiana, California and Maryland.

With the arrival of these 11 individuals, Mexico has now extradited 100
defendants to the United States in 2009, the highest yearly number of
extraditions from Mexico to date.  The extradition of 95 defendants in 2008
was the previous record number of extraditions for one year from Mexico.

"The extradition of these 11 defendants exemplifies the strong cooperative
relationship between the United States and Mexico," said Attorney General Eric
Holder.  "Each year since 2001, Mexico has increased the number of defendants
it extradites to the United States.  By ensuring that alleged criminals are
held accountable, we send a strong message that fleeing across the border does
not mean you will escape justice.  I am looking forward to meeting Attorney
General Chavez tomorrow and discussing additional ways we as law enforcement
partners can work together to hold such defendants, particularly alleged
leaders and associates of drug cartels, accountable."

The defendants arrived in the United States on Saturday, Oct. 31, 2009, and
will be transferred to the jurisdictions in which they face charges.  The
extradited defendants, and the charges they face, are listed below:
