Mexico to Hold Referendum on Accountability of Ex-Presidents
"Ballots this weekend in their first ever national referendum. But as James Fredrick reports from Mexico City, it's not clear what or even if the balloting will mean anything. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has framed the referendum as an opportunity for citizens to vote yes or no for his administration to investigate and possibly prosecute former presidents. One ad shows mug shot style photos of the ex presidents and says Vote yes for justice. But after Supreme Court revisions, the ballots no longer mentioned former presidents and instead ask about quote actions to shed light on past political decisions. This vagueness likely gives the president the final word on what the referendum actually means. But it may not matter. The referendum is only valid of 40% of registered voters submit a ballot. Election watchers say that will be a tough mark to hit for NPR news. I'm James

There is a Surge Of Coronavirus Deaths in Mexico
"New data reveal a surge of cova deaths in mexico. The country has officially confirmed more than two million cases. An almost one hundred eighty thousand deaths from the corona virus but mortality rates. Tell an even more grim tale over the past year deaths were fifty two percent higher than in previous years. According to the financial times that puts mexico's rate of excess deaths much higher than that of countries such as america and brazil assembled woman to stay lot yet earlier this month. Mexico's president andres manuel. Lopez obrador widely known as anglo said. We are living in a stellar moment. The kovic spike is far from the country's only problem poverty. Corruption and crime are all on the rise but polls indicate that two years into amyloid term. Most mexicans are willing to give him more time. Mexico's president is incredibly popular. Sir burke is our mexico bureau chief he wanted on slide in two thousand eighteen and he still has approval ratings that most other leaders would be extremely jealous off at sixty two percent as it stands and that's all in spite of what looks like a very good handling of most things most obviously at the moment the pandemic. What do you mean by that. Mexico is a terrible record for covert hospitals are full and oxygen tanks in short supply. It's done very few tests for covid. It hasn't provided very much financial support tool for people who are suffering or being asked to stay home not to work the vaccination which is one sort of bright spot potentially insofar as mexico has lined up enough vaccines to cover its population. But it's a very very slow start. That might be picking up now. But otherwise there talks of ten years to get to seventy five percent of the population being vaccinated. I'm currently this has been a problem again from the top. So i'm low has completely downplayed the importance of the pandemic. He has refused to wear a face mask apart from wants when he flew in an airplane to go to the united states and he got covid himself the stars of this year and he reappeared and everyone thought well. Maybe he'll have changed his mind after this. But he reiterated again that he wouldn't be wearing a face mask so in the face of that pandemic response on wires his popularity still so high so he had this amazing vision for mexico in eighteen. Which is why he won with a landslide. He said. I'm going to do a fourth transformation. These big bold plan to make the country fairer and more equitable ending corruption and crime. And making sure there was economic growth where the gains were fairly distributed so that poor people go rich. The reality is slightly different from the vision so far in the two and a bit years. He's been in power. He's been undoing. The reforms of previous presidents and dismantling that system throwing out the baby with the bath water you could say. And then his new initiatives mainly they seem to fail to solve the problems that they put two and then a of third element is that he's really concentrated power in the presidency and some people say that they get things done and other people think they're more evil intentions behind that well. Let's come back to the throwing the baby out with the bathwater part. What's he'd been doing. In terms of reform he abolished prosper. Which was a very sort of lauded conditional cash transfer program for the poor he also reversed education. Reform was much more meritocratic assessment of teachers. A big one at the moment is he's trying to reverse bit by bit and opening of the energy market. That happened in two thousand thirteen so it was open to private and foreign enterprises which make electricity cheaper and greener on current. Neither congress is debating a bill which would favor cfe which is state owned electricity provider. So they're actually go first into the grid. As opposed to the cheaper electric which is often green provided by private companies. This would obviously raise prices and deti energy but it could also breach the. Us mexico canada agreement. Which is the north american free trade pact to replace after another sort of big thing has been getting rid of or proposing get rid of a lot of the autonomous agencies such as the freedom of information agency all these ones keep checks on the government and what it's doing so well he's been tearing all that down. What's he been building up. Will you say his own initiatives. Don't do what they should. He's very dedicated to fiscal discipline. That's a good thing especially in a so-called left leaning president it's also become very counter productive during the pandemic. The imf is telling mexico to spend more so far it's only spent nine point seven percents of gdp on extra efforts during the pandemic and more needs to be done and some people think this is going to need to scarring that there's going to be permanent drop in output caused by loss of jobs and businesses so the recovery is going to be much much slower in mexico than elsewhere. He's also splashed out on bizarre old-economy projects such as pouring money. Pex the world's most indebted oil company. And then he's putting eight billion dollars into a refinery at the time when no other country is building refineries and it's not clear what economic return that will be from that and you mentioned the big transformative plan was in part about ending endemic corruption and crime. How's that been going. Well either jason. That was point. Four percent dip in murders last year and he proclaimed this dip as a very significant success. But that's after a rise the before and frankly during the pandemic you'd expect it to have dropped them. In in other countries across latin america that also suffer high levels of violence that has been the case he also rejected the previous government's tactic of killing and capturing crime kingpins because led to a splintering of gangs. And you might be worth rejecting that. But there's no alternative puts in place. So i think his vision is that you alleviate poverty and crime goes down. That might happen in the long term but it does nothing to sort out the short term problem the problem of the current chapel as opposed to the ones who are still only three years old on corruption. As you could say he's set a good example so has been good political rhetoric. The stiffer penalties on bribe-taking for bureaucrats. But he's unless strengthen the institutions to carry that ford again it's more rhetoric than actual institutional change or heft. The national anticorruption prosecutors overwhelmed with cases and one government agency suggests that the number of acts of corruption actually rose by nineteen percent between two thousand seventeen and two thousand nineteen. It is as you say not a big list of happy news here. I mean when will that's ring down to the electorate. I mean how long we'll mexicans continue to support him for his failures because he really has persuaded a lot of people that he's like them and cares about the he's very popular because of who he is and his message rather than necessarily what he does. The opposition is seen as corrupt on what came before him was horrifically corrupt. And so he's seen the best of a bad bunch by a loss of people. But you know here's a classic populace and a lot of elite azam Against him they see him as a mexican version of hugo chavez. Which i think is a little bit of an exaggeration. But there's this big divides on the mix of policy failure. I'm power grabbing is is worrying.

U.S. drops drug charges against Mexican general, clearing way for transfer
"Unexpected move by the U. S. Justice Department has thrown the US Mexico relationship into the spotlight. Last month, former Mexican General Salvador sent Frago Cepeda, who was arrested in Los Angeles and face charges of drug trafficking and corruption. Today, though a U. S District Court judge allowed prosecutors to drop all charges against sent way goes opening the door for him to return to Mexico and allowing Mexican officials to investigate. Walk us through this eyebrow raising move. The world's Jorge Valencia joins us from Mexico City, Jorge What was the Justice Department accusing sent way goes off remind us prosecutors were saying that he was using his position as the former defense minister of Mexico. He was the head of the Defense Ministry from 2012 to 2016. He said he was using that position to allow an organized crime group known as H two to traffic drugs to United States without interference. Now prosecutors appear to have a very solid case. They spent more than a year on this. So it was a very big surprise when none other than William Barr, the U. S. Attorney general himself issued a statement yesterday saying that prosecutors were going to drop all charges and return General Sam Fly goes to Mexico Mexico's foreign relations Minister Marcelo and gave public remarks about this yesterday. Would out here is saying that he doesn't see this as a path toward impunity, but rather his way in which the Department of Justice is showing respect to Mexico and showing respect to Mexico's military. This feels like such a 1 80, especially considering sent for egos was arrested. Just last month s O. What kind of reaction has there been? Shock? Bewilderment? Uh, I mean, for people who are involved in efforts to fight organized crime here in Mexico. They're very surprised by this because this isn't just about the charges that Cienfuegos was facing in District court in New York, but also about other crimes that many people believe that the government was involved in while he was the defense minister.

This is outlandish and the most repulsive thing that I've ever seen in the history of U. S. Justice. Marco. One important piece of context to have is that Mexico's courts are notoriously challenged. Some estimates find that nine out of 10 crimes in Mexico go unpunished. So when you have somebody as powerful as the former defense minister general of Cienfuegos if he actually did commit any of the crimes that he was being accused of in the United States There is a good chance that he could walk away without ever facing trial. Are there any theories as to why the U. S. Justice Department would drop these charges? I mean drug trafficking. Mexico remains a high priority for us national security. There seems to be more to the story. I should be clear that it is speculation. But the prevailing theory is that by returning General Cienfuegos to Mexico, the Trump administration is returning a favor to the administration of President Andres Manuel Lopez. Laura Laura.

"Led by president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador hello he call the first batch of seventy thousand troops is being deployed now to hot spots around the country those include Mexico's borders where it's under pressure from the United States to control the flow of central American migrants northward they're also in Mexico City which is where reporter James Frederick joins us now in James a few weeks ago there was no National Guard now we're talking about thousands of troops where did they come from and what role they play what we know is that three quarters of those seventy thousand have just been transferred over from different military forces in Mexico so you know you have soldiers or marines just wearing different uniforms now but the big difference is that the National Guard dubbed as a civilian military hybrid gives these troops the powers to basically carry out police function so that means they can arrest people they're supposed to be investigating crimes everything you can you think of a police officer during the National Guard has those powers in addition to the military firepower I want to come back to that in a moment but first have you seen the guard in action can you give us a sense of what they're doing well the first time we saw the guard was when they're deployed to Mexico southern border to help stop migrants coming north so I saw some of them and really these were just soldiers who had had National Guard armband slapped on to them as you mentioned they have also been deployed to Mexico City which is quite controversial it's very very rare and hasn't really happened in modern history that military forces get deployed to Mexico City so we are no they're deployed all across the country but it's very early and and we haven't seen much of what they're doing yeah what does that mean for other aspects of life in Mexico I mean the country's hitting records in terms of murders and other kinds of violent crime so could the National Guard have a role there well that that's what president Lopez Obrador says he says this is going to be the key to solving this security crisis in Mexico and he and he readily admitted that things continue to get worse right now Mexico again this year is on track to have its most murders ever in a year but really the the question is whether the National Guard is going to be substantially different from any of the security forces that currently exist whether that's the Mexican army the Mexican federal police force which is now being phased out as the National Guard comes in so really the question is clearly Mexico does need good security forces to solve this crisis do they have the ability to change that is the National Guard actually a big change clearly the National Guard is somewhat controversial in Mexico so can you talk about what are some of the concerns from critics the number one concern is training you know with three quarters of these troops being transferred over from the military we know they're trained and everything soldiers now what we are not sure about is how trained they are to basically act as police officers to arrest people to read people their rights to investigate crimes to do that harder longer work of dismantling criminal networks were not sure if they're trained for that Mexico's military has had several scandals in the last couple years of extrajudicial executions excessive use of force the concern is that transferring those people over to the National Guard we'll just continue those same kinds of problems that's reporter James Frederick from Mexico City.

"Government shutdown drags on. But a president tells us people that he's standing his ground. Yeah. That sounds like the US, but that's a story from south of the border to Mexico. Lots of motorists are lining up at gas stations. The new Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez over door has been shutting down state run gasoline pipelines. It's his response to the problem of fuel theft. His shutdown is also controversial reporter, Emily green tells us from Mexico City. I am hearing that there are just hundreds perhaps thousands of people around the country waiting in long lines to just try and get a little gas in their cars. I talked to one man in Guadalajara today. And he said that people are getting up at four AM to get in line to get gas in their vehicle, and sometimes they're not even managing to do that. So this I think is a practical crisis. And it's also a political crisis for mex-. President Andres Manuel Lopez who just took office in December. And is this happening? Also in the capital in Mexico City. Yes, it's happening in Mexico City as well. The mayor here estimates that about a quarter of gas stations are affected by this crisis. So the new president of Mexico Andres Manuel Lopez over door has been shutting down these gasoline pipelines is that part of the problem here. And why did he do that? Right. The backdrop to this crisis is a fact that gas theft is a major major problem in Mexico has been for many years. Now, it's estimated that state run energy company. Pimek's loses around three point five billion billion dollars a year in gas theft. And so what the new president wants to do is. He wants to crack down on that. And he wants to close the pipelines. So he can deal with that problem. And so he's basically using massive tanker. Trucks to transport the gas. But take a trucks are big. But they don't make up for pipeline. So when these thieves are stealing oil, they're siphoning off these these fuel pipelines is a sense that by shutting these pipelines down this might actually stop the thieves. That's the calculation of trying to start on the pipelines. I think get to the crux of the problem. But does president over door have the support of the public on this? So in theory. Yes, the Mexican public is not a fan of gas theft. They want that stopped the country losing billions of dollars a year because of it in practicality do Mexicans want to be waiting in line since four in the morning to get gas in their vehicles or not be able to get gas at all. No. And so this I think is a real risk for local. Yes, he wants to get rid of gas theft. But he is rapidly going to lose public support. If this crisis continues, and I think it's going to be a real dilemma for him to see how this plays out in what to do any sense of how long this shutdown is going to go on for this gasoline pipeline. Shut down is gasoline. Just going to be moved by truck from now on. Initially Lopez overdose. Doors administration said it would last around five days, then he came out swinging and said, it would basically he wasn't going to back down. And he would keep the pipeline shut down as long as needed. And I think now they're backtracking a little bit because they see that this is turning into a real crisis for Lopez. So by Monday or Tuesday will no more any possibility. This could all be felt north of the border. Yes, it's definitely possible that this gas crisis could be felt north of the border, and that's because there's a lot of trade and commerce between the US and Mexico in a lot of that trade happens via truck, so if you are sending goods from the US to Mexico and your big four Wheeler, you're sixteen Wheeler can't get gas. How are they going to get that merchandise to Mexico? So this could have an impact. Packed beyond just here in Mexico.
