President Andrés Manuel López Obrador called the protections brought by the construction of the airport in Santa Lucia as legal sabotage and assured that the work will be carried out without delays.

The representative also called those in this case, «couldn’t do the ‘business’, to get a little scratch at the very least, very upset, money is not life.»
A federal judge ordered a new suspension to the works of St. Lucia International Airport (AISL), until the trial of amparo seeking to halt its construction is finally resolved.
The court order was issued by Judge Quinto de Distrito en Administrativa in Mexico City, which also orders the federal government to keep the works of Mexico International Airport in Texcoco (NAIM), according to the collective #NoMásDerroches, which brought several amparo trials, for the Federation Judiciary to review the legality of the new project.
The judicial authorities had already granted final suspensions on six occasions against construction in St. Lucia, unless they obtained all environmental, safety and aeronautical viability permits.
