The mother of con­victed drug king­pin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guz­man said Satur­day that the U.S. Em­bassy in Mex­ico City granted her a visa so she can visit her son in prison.

Sit­ting in a wheel­chair in front of the em­bassy, Con­suelo Lo­era said that she and two daugh­ters were both ap­proved Satur­day for visas to travel to the United States.

Lo­era said she hasn’t seen her son in more than four years.
