Irregular Contracts Signed by Former Collaborator of Genaro García Luna. The Federal Government revealed that Sonia Vargas Terrero, former collaborator of Genaro García Luna and recently hired as the Administrative Coordinator of the Federal Judiciary Council (CJF), signed allegedly irregular contracts worth over US$71 million during her time in the Federal Police. This information was disclosed by the head of the Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF), Pablo Gómez, on Monday. These contracts were signed during the presidency of Felipe Calderón. 

Sonia Vargas worked as Director General of Material Resources, General Services and Infrastructure of the Federal Police. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador pointed out on May 19 that the President of the Supreme Court of Justice (SCJN), Norma Lucía Piña, hired Sonia Vargas Terrero, a former collaborator of Genaro García Luna, who was declared guilty of drug trafficking in the US last February.

Temporary Visas for Central American Migrants. President López Obrador said he will present an initiative this week to grant temporary visas for migrants crossing through Mexico to work on public infrastructure projects. Moreover, he stated that they could provide support for completing the Mayan Train project and address the need for construction professionals.

Popocatepetl. President López Obrador said that there is already a plan in place for the volcanic activity of Popocatepetl and assured that experts are monitoring the volcano 24 hours a day. He added that his government has been working since the first eruptions and there is coordination between Civil Protection and local governments.

Letter From Joe Biden. The president announced that he received a letter from US President Joe Biden, "recognizing Mexico's efforts" and expressing a commitment to invest more in Central America and the Caribbean.

Veracruz’s Governor. López Obrador defended the governor of Veracruz, Cuitláhuac García, after criticism for leading aprotest against the justices of the Supreme Court of Justice (SCJN) last weekend. López Obrador made it clear that Veracruz has not had a governor like García Jiménez "for a long time." 

During the rally on Saturday afternoon, which lasted approximately one hour, the governor of Veracruz pointed out that the Supreme Court appears to turn a deaf ear to the people's demands and obstructs President López Obrador's priority projects.
