He simply wants out of the devil's bargain he made with the DEA...

Fuck a CI and fuck the DEA. He had his chances to get out but he liked being a CI. Send him back to Colombia, throw the DEA down a hole.

Like they say, you get what you betray for.

He's sort of like the Henry Hill of Latin America, except for how long he's been at it.

I feel a little bad for the guy, in that returning him to Columbia is essentially a death sentence. You'd think the DEA could at least help him get residency in Costa Rica or somewhere, even if they can't/won't do anything about US residency.

Although really I think it's pretty fucked up how his record was unsealed after 9/11, given that he was a legal resident up to that point, and the agreement was that his record would remain sealed. If it was reasonable and safe to have him in the country before, it still is now.

Not that I condone what he was doing, mind you, but plenty of banksters were more deeply involved in cartel money and had zero consequences. Seems to me like living the utterly fucked up life he has had since he fell in with the DEA is enough punishment.

After all these years in the US, going to Colombia is a death sentence. What a sad story.
