A former Mexican police officer wanted in connection with the mass killing of 43 education students in the town of Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, in 2014, tried to sneak into New Mexico last month. He was arrested by U.S. Border Patrol officers this week, and he was sent back to Mexico for trial.
The U.S. and Mexican immigration officers met this week at Ciudad Juarez’s international port-of-entry to hand over Alejandro Tenescalco Mejia. He is wanted by police and cartel gunmen for killing 43 Ayotzinapa education students.

U.S. Border Patrol officers found Alejandro Tenescalco Mejia near Santa Teresa in New Mexico on December 14, 2022. This was in response to a criminal charge filed at a Las Cruces Federal Court. Tenescalco told agents that he is Mexican and that he had been a citizen since birth.
Raul Ortiz of the U.S. Border Patrol posted a photo on social media stating that Tenescalco held a warrant from Mexico for kidnapping, organized crime and kidnapping. According to court records, the prosecution requested that the original charge of illegal entry to the country be dropped on December 21 in order to allow him to return to Mexico.

Breitbart Texas was informed by law enforcement officials in Mexico that Tenescalco had been a Guerrero police officer and was one of the most wanted suspects for the mass murder. Sources claim Tenescalco had contact with top cartel leaders as well as the murderers. The source said Mexico’s government was offering a cash reward of $10 million pesos ($500,000 USD).
Breitbart Texas reported that in 2014, students from education had taken several buses on their way to protest. A team of officers stopped them, and they turned the bodies over to cartel gunmen. The case was reportedly covered up by Mexico’s government — an issue that has become a hot political topic. In connection to the coverup, authorities recently arrested an ex-Mexican Attorney General.
