The new Puebla governor, Luis Miguel Barbosa Huerta, announced that the new administration discovered several cases of children trafficking.

During an event to present the System of Comprehensive Protection of Children and Teenagers, the governor announced he will file a lawsuit.

“There are documented cases of child trafficking, it's terrible. Once we have more elements, [the case] is going to be the subject of complaints.”

Barbosa explained that the cases are being investigated although he didn't say when did the crimes happen.

The governor also said that the local DIF worked as a political operation center and didn't focus on helping children and families.
