More desafuero news....

Well, not really. Not much is happening, though the attorney general's office, the Presidency, and AMLO are taking turns making statements to the press.

The AG and President's offices are now taking the position that not only did AMLO lose his immunity when the Congress voted, but that he was also immediately removed from his post as Mayor of Mexico City.

For his part, AMLO has said he will be back at work next Monday, after running the city from his home for the last two weeks. This seems to be an attempt to call the AG's bluff and try to get them to request the arrest warrant and get on with the case.

The Supreme Court is still considering two claims, one by the Mexico City council and another by the Chamber of Deputies.
