Transitional Statute in Venezuela declared unconstitutional

The Supreme Court of Venezuela annulled the Transitional Statute approved by the National Assembly, which has an opposition majority.

The president of the Constitutional Chamber, Juan José Mendoza, declared that it violates the constitution which never mentions any such statute.
He also pointed out that this is just another attempt by the National Assembly to expel Nicolás Maduro from power, which the court declared in contempt months ago.
In the document, the assembly led by Venezuela's self-proclaimed president, Juan Guaidó, states that if free elections cannot be held within 30 days, Guaidó will be appointed the interim president of Venezuela.

Pardons in Brazil for prisoners with serious illnesses

The Brazilian government will offer pardons for non-violent prisoners with serious illnesses.

From the decree published on Monday, only those who were not imprisoned for violent crimes, corruption or drug trafficking will be able to benefit from the new law.
The regulations signed by President Jair Bolsonaro and justice minister Sergio Moro target those inmates who cannot receive proper treatment and care in prison.
This group of inmates includes those who are in a terminal state, suffer from blindness or other conditions that hinder their mobility.
The prison authorities will send all possible cases to the Public Prosecutor's Office to evaluate their release.

Americans demonstrators formed a human wall to prevent human and drug trafficking.

A group of Americans came together to form a human wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Americans met at a place on the border between El Paso and Ciudad Juárez where there is no fence, to ask that a border wall be built there.
The protesters stated that the barrier would bring security and prevent drug trafficking and human trafficking networks from continuing to operate in the area.
President Donald Trump yesterday offered a rally in El Paso to promote the construction of the wall that has the opposition of the Democratic sector.
The dispute over the financing of the project threatens to lead to the second partial closure of the U.S. government.

Electricity scam in Mexico

The Mexican government revealed the names of companies that charge multimillion-dollar amounts despite keeping their pipelines closed.

Manuel Bartlett, director of the Federal Electricity Commission, reported that the companies are Carso, IEnova, and TransCanada, which received advantageous contracts during previous administrations.
López Obrador denounced that since then, the Federal Electricity Commission has been forced to buy gas from these companies.
They were paid for the service of several pipelines that have been closed, worth 21 billion dollars.
He also pointed out that individuals have received subsidies and the payment of a fixed fee for the maintenance of facilities.
The president concluded that he would seek to repair all the damage by negotiating a conciliation plan with private companies.
