    The Texas-born reputed drug trafficker know as "La Barbie" - a top-level cartel boss recently captured in Mexico - wants the U.S. government to spring him from Mexican custody so he can face justice in the United States.

    The Houston lawyer of Edgar Valdez Villarreal sent a formal request to the U.S. ambassador to Mexico this week asking that the United States press Mexico to have Valdez deported as soon as possible.

    Valdez is accused of directing a vicious, grisly battle for control of a drug-trafficking organization, as well as fighting other criminal rivals and government forces. Mass killings, beheadings and desecrated bodies are seen as La Barbie's calling cards, but so far he has not been charged with murder in the United States or Mexico.

    He was arrested late last month by Mexican federal agents and is being held in Mexico City.

    "It is my belief that as long as he is incarcerated in Mexico, his life is in danger from other prisoners and possibly from Mexican authorities," states a copy of the letter provided by Houston attorney Kent Schaffer.

    The lawyer has said previously that Valdez knew it was only a matter of time before he was killed or captured and already had begun looking into options should he be caught. After his arrest by Mexican federal police, his alleged confession was posted on news media websites as well as YouTube.

    Schaffer said in an interview that his client had not been physically coerced into a confession, but it was made clear that if he didn't say what authorities wanted as the cameras rolled his family would face consequences.

    But of course - Mexico is salivating cause he is a born USA citizen. They just can't say it enough that he was born in the USA! Not taking into account the many, many killers that THEY breed. Ho-Hum
