The Mexican Mafia prison gang have ‘allegedly’ vowed to take good care of cartel kingpin Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, while he’s in custody inside a U.S. prison.

Mexico’s government extradited ‘El Chapo’ on Thursday to the U.S. where he faces indictments in six different jurisdictions and currently remains under heavy security at a federal holding facility in downtown Manhattan.

A video that surfaced in recent days posted on Youtube and picked up by several Mexican news portals, allegedly taken from inside a California maximum security prison shows several men, claiming to be hired cartel killers who were supposedly captured and jailed in the United States.

A man speaking Spanish in the video, who went by the name “Chucky” promised they could get ‘El Chapo’ any contraband including drugs, cell phones, and even women to accommodate the drug lord during his incarceration.

The video description said, “3,500 inmates have vowed to protect the drug lord compliments from the Mexican Mafia.”

The camera then pans to a window showing the outside of an apparent detention facility and inside the prison.

Guzman was escorted by an army of federal agents to a New York City federal holding facility late Thursday night

Neither the authenticity of the footage or whether the characters in the video are actual cartel hitmen or Mexican Mafia members has not been independently verified.

A law enforcement official wouldn’t comment on the video but told JammedUp News “Guzman would certainly have celebrity status among fellow inmates if he ever made it to the general prison population.”

The leader of Mexico’s powerful Sinaloa cartel pleaded not guilty to a 17-count criminal indictment on charges including drug trafficking, weapons, money laundering, racketeering and conspiracy to commit murder.

If convicted, Guzman faces a mandatory life sentence, which he’ll likely serve at AFC Florence Colorado Supermax Prison.
