The Governance Commission of the Chamber of Deputies has drafted the report on the Interior Security Law which will be discussed and modified by three work groups, according to Commission Chair Mercedes Guillén. The draft — comprised of 32 sections and three transitory provisions — unifies the concept of domestic security with national security.

The president of the National Commission for Human Rights Raúl Plasencia requested the Congress not to rush into passing the bill until every expert involved in the decision-making process has issued their opinion. Plasencia stated that withdrawing military forces from the streets at this point would be foolish since the organized crime has exceeded the enforcement capacities of the police.

The Interior Security Law will enable the president — by their own decision or by the request of state governments — to deploy military forces in situations that threaten the domestic security which range from natural disasters to events that may compromise the functioning or facilities of government institutions.
