    For Mexican nationals you are correct, but given the hatred and racism of this guy towards Latinos I doubt he would walk out of that prison alive and he would be beat up on a daily basis.

    Moot point because we won't let them extradite him nor should we. His crimes were on US soil.

    You have it backwards. The shooter didn't violate any Mexican laws, because he was not in Mexico.
    The only reason to be anti-libertarian is there are people you want to control that you wouldn't be able to.

    It’s not a win-win for El Paso. You want us to wait 15 years to try him? **** that and **** anyone who thinks El Paso shouldn’t get first crack at him.

    If the prisons in Mexico are lacking in security, a prison sentence in Mexico may be a death sentence for the El Paso shooter, given that there might be people who may want to take their rage out on him, vigilante style.
    So if hes sentenced to death by jury in the US hes going to be a martyr, but he wont if we turn him over to a foreign country to face their kangaroo court system and gets killed in a foreign prison?

    Im not sure I follow your logic

    I can imagine plenty of fresh avenues of appeal against a death sentence being opened on the basis of the defendant being threatened with or actually extradited to a foreign country prior to their US trial. Especially a country without robust protections for the accused and prison conditions that some might call torture

    I know that it is highly unlikely Mexico’s attempt to extradite the El Paso shooter out of the United States will be successful, but I actually support them in their efforts. Given the contents of the shooters tirade, calling it a manifesto is too polite, I believe it would be fitting for the El Paso to face Justice at the hands of the people he specifically targeted because of his twisted racial beliefs.
    Justice will be surer and swifter in Texas.
