"We are working hard to provide legal certainty and public security," President Calderón declares.
Hermosillo, Sonora - During a meeting with businessmen from Sonora, Hermosillo, President Felipe Calderón declared that with the determined participation of the three branches and orders of government and of society as a whole, Mexicans will be able to put a stop to organized crime and ensure the prevalence of the rule of law.

“We are working hard to provide legal certainty and public security for the inhabitants of Sonora and the rest of the country. And it is precisely for this reason that I have been meeting with the country's political, economic and social actors to boost the National Security Strategy,” he said.

He said that, “This is a task that is not only up to Federal Government, far less to the president alone, as some people have tried to say. It is a task for all Mexicans, and it is up to the authorities at all levels to do our part.

Accompanied by state governor Guillermo Padrés Elías and Economy Secretary Bruno Ferrari García de Alba, he added that, although it is not up to citizens to deal with the criminals themselves, “We will ask citizens for their support and understanding with this fight against crime.

The President said that, “We request joint responsibility from the other authorities and political actors, because, I insist, this is a task that we must deal with together.”

That is why, he said, “I am sure that with the determined participation of the three branches of government, in other words, the legislative branch, which is working on the laws we need to cope with the problem, the judicial branch, which needs to be purged and requires a thorough review of all its members and the executive branch, of course and the three orders of government, and society as a while, we will be able to put a halt to organized crime and ensure the prevalence of the rule of law."

Later on, President Felipe Calderón, accompanied by his wife Margarita Zavala, Governor Guillermo Padrés Elías and Interior Secretariat José Francisco Blake Mora, attended the inauguration of the expansion and remodeling of the Emergency Service of the General Hospital of Zone Number 2 of the Mexican Social Security Institute where he presented a award to the Shriners Hospital for having attended the children affected by the fire at the ABC Nursery with a high sense of professionalism.

He recalled the fact that a few weeks ago, he received some of the parents and relatives of the children affected by the fire and that he had pledged to meet up with them again in Hermosillo. “The relatives of the surviving children will always have my support and that of my government. At the end of this event, I will meet up with them again, to tell them of some of the measures they requested and which we have agreed on to support them at these difficult times," he said.
