An El Paso lawyer will have his bond set this morning in federal court.

Marco Antonio Delgado, 46, has been charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering of over $1 million from July 2007 to December 2008.

He was arrested on Nov. 2 at a West Side restaurant by Homeland Security Investigations agents.

Delgado allegedly worked with the Milenio drug cartel or Cartel de los Valencia, said officials from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The investigation showed that Delgado is linked to the Mexican drug organization and conspired to launder more that $600 million made from drug trafficking.

Jose Montes Jr. is representing Delgado.
