Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto speaks during a ceremony at the National Palace in Mexico City, Thursday, Nov. 27, 2014.  Mexico's president announced a new anti-crime plan that includes proposals for a nationwide ID, giving Congress the power to dissolve corrupt municipal government and fold their often-corrupt local police forces under the control of the country’s 31 state governments. The plan would also streamline the complex divisions between federal, state and local offenses. At present, some local police refuse to act to prevent federal crimes like drug trafficking.  The plan would focus first on four of Mexico’s most troubled states, Guerrero, Michoacan, Jalisco and Tamaulipas. It would also send more federal police and other forces to those states.
