  1. Can imagine the overcrowding in Mexico's penitentiaries. Doubt that AMLO has any budget for the construction of new holding facilities. Since his sermons aren't getting through to these criminals.

  2. There is a new penitentiary in Morelos. It is not in service yet. It is near the pay highway from Taxco to Cuernavaca.

  3. 10:30 que se metan su nueva penitenciaria por el jundillo.
