‘Social programs must be boosted to counter hikes’


MEXICO CITY – Manlio Fabio Beltrones, the president of the Senate, recently criticized the decisions of the administration of President Felipe Calderón regarding the economy and said that they were based on increasing the prices of basic foods and fuel and a very small increase to the minimum wage.

Beltrones, an Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) senator, said that the government’s income would be extraordinary in 2011, therefore, it would have to administrate public expenditure and develop social programs with transparency and efficiency. The government must focus on reversing the poverty and hunger levels that resulted from the price increases on food and other basic need products.

Despite this year’s positive economic growth estimates, the escalating prices registered since 2010 may increase the poverty and hunger levels in Mexico, he added.

Beltrones urged the government to adjust public policies in the economic and social sectors in order to reactivate the domestic market and to generate quality jobs.

President Calderón cannot ignore the fact that nearly 20 percent of children and teenagers in Mexico suffer from hunger and the president has to work to prevent this percentage from increasing and affecting a society that is already going through hard times, Beltrones said.

In the past decade, the prices of tortilla, sugar, electricity in homes has tripled and are on the rise. Furthermore, most of the formal jobs that have been generated are temporary and pay poorly. Mexico’s economic activity is below the levels of 2008. In view of the uncertainty regarding the U.S. economic recovery, Mexico must use tools that will help it reactivate the domestic market, such as implementing projects similar to the National Infrastructure Program, facilitating credit for national industries, accelerating the release of resources in agricultural funds, and developing and implementing a competitive policy in the industrial sector, Beltrones said.

Monday 10th January, 2011 (Source: CNS News)

- The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a Texas woman who wants to sue the federal government for sending her U.S. citizen baby to Mexico with the child's illegal immigrant father. Monica Castro's daughter was a day from her first birthday when federal agents deported the father to Mexico and sent her with him.

Three years would pass before Castro and the girl, both U.S. citizens who were born in Texas, were reunited. Castro sued the federal government over the actions of the Border Patrol agents who refused to take the girl from her father and knowingly sent a U.S. citizen to Mexico. But a divided federal appeals court blocked the lawsuit. The Supreme Court did not comment Monday in turning down Castro's ...
