"It means that never again will Guzman pour poison over our borders, making billions, while innocent lives are lost to drug violence and drug addiction", Donoghue said.
Guzman, 62, was convicted on February 12 of trafficking tons of cocaine, heroin and other drugs into the United States as the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico, where prosecutors said he amassed power through murders and wars with rival cartels.
Prosecutors said his "army of sicarios" was under orders to kidnap, torture and murder anyone who tried to stop him.
The defense argued he was framed by other traffickers who became government witnesses so they could get breaks in their own cases.
A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York, has sentenced drug kingpin Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán to a term of life in prison plus 30 years for his role in leading Mexico's Sinaloa cartel.
He was extradited to the United States in 2017 and has been in solitary confinement in a Manhattan jail under intense security.
Prosecutors won their request to tack on a symbolic extra 30 years in prison for the use of firearms in his business, which Cogan said he imposed because the "overwhelming evil is so severe".
Guzman is perhaps most famous for breaking out of two high-security Mexican prisons.

Directly before Wednesday's sentencing, El Chapotold the Brooklyn courtroom that his confinement in the United States had amounted to "psychological, emotional, mental torture 24 hours a day".
According to The Associated Press, Guzman complained Wednesday before he was sentenced about his living conditions and the trial process, calling it unfair and saying the judge failed to adequately investigate allegations of juror misconduct. "You denied me a fair trial".
In the courtroom in Brooklyn, Guzman said prayers from his supporters had given him "strength to endure this great torture", which he said has been "one of the most inhuman that I have ever experienced. a lack of respect for my human dignity".
"The sentence separates the myth of El Chapo from the man Joaquin Guzman", Melendez said.
With almost 9K followers, Alejandrina has a well-established social media presence for her fashion brand, which sells t-shirts, jeans, jackets, dress shirts, outerwear, hats, sombreros, shoes, swimsuits, along with a wide line of accessories, and liquor.
His wife said they were working on developing the company well before his arrival in the United States.
For Joaquin Guzman, that's the biggest question at his sentencing in New York City on Wednesday. "Before he was in the United States of America we talked a lot about this topic". "We all know someone that was killed or a cousin of a friend that's involved in drug trafficking", she said.
The timing appears to be a coincidence as news of Alejandrina's brand was first released in January 2019, which is when the daughter of one of the world's most notorious drug cartel leaders started to promote the brand on her website. "I will give it my best effort to make it good for everyone and within everyone's reach".
