SAN DIEGO – A woman believed to be the daughter of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman has been deported to Mexico after admitting that she tried to enter the U.S. using a fraudulent visa.

Alejandrina Gisselle Guzman-Salazar, 31, was arrested in October at the San Ysidro port of entry after presenting to U.S. officers the forged visa of another person.

Guzman Salazar, who was pregnant at the time of her arrest, allegedly told U.S. authorities that she was en route to Los Angeles to give birth to her child.

Under terms of her plea agreement reached Monday, a federal judge sentenced Guzman Salazar to time already served since her arrest on Oct. 12. She was deported on Tuesday to Tijuana.
