They warn imminent wear of FA
The opposition focused the debate on legal arguments and demanded that their opponents evade the law of the discussion. That is why Senator Claudia Ruiz Massieu, of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), went so far as to recriminate: “be serious, comrades, today’s arguments are embarrassing.”
The PRI member listed the elements that speak of militarization: “How can the National Guard not be a military body if it will be administratively and operationally controlled by the military, if its ranks are military, if its elements are no longer going to need a permit to carry weapons? that are the exclusive use of the Army, if the appointment of your commander would originate from a military proposal, if your training programs are military?
“To maintain that something is going to continue to be civilian when it is clearly military is to deceive oneself and the citizenry. And the argument that it’s civilian because the command is from the president who is civilian is a frankly poor argument,” he said.
Senator Miguel Ángel Mancera, of the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), claimed that the jurisdiction to which the armed forces will be assigned will not be clear.
For Movimiento Ciudadano, Noé Castañón, demanded that the public security strategy be modified without the head of the SSPC, Rosa Icela Rodríguez, going to explain the reasons, since it is the Senate that has the power to analyze and approve policies. security public.
Both Castañón and Ruiz Massieu anticipated that it is foreseeable that the armed forces will face wear and tear and loss of confidence, having more powers in security.
