Emma Coronel’s father was known as “The King of Crystal” and was known for upping the use of crystal meth across the world.

The Daily Mail reported:


He was finally tracked down to a modest beachside high-rise in the Pacific Coast resort city of Mazatlan in February 2014, where he had been hiding with his beauty-queen wife and twin daughters.

Emma Coronel, who was born in California, is a U.S. citizen, which means she has the right to live in the United States. Her father was also a drug lord who died in a shoot-out with the Mexican army.

She was sent to California to give birth so that her daughters would be U.S. citizens too. Federal agents wanted to stop her, but had no formal charges to file so had to let her go free…

Emma Coronel gave birth to twin girls on Aug. 15, 2011, in LA county. Obama immigration officials kept tabs on Emma, but couldn’t arrest her, because there were no charges.
