Here's a poor google translation of the first part:
' Desnudador' in the airport raises to forts critics in Mexico Mexico D.F. Reuters. If you arrive mainly at Mexico D.F., coming from Centro and Suramérica, she prepárese so that they see it as she came to the world. Escáner of American manufacture to detect objects stuck to the body and that virtually undresses the people, it began to be used in the congested capital airport, which has waked up complaints of users and the Ombudsman of human rights. The apparatus consists of a cabin where it is introduced to the passenger to be scanned from several angles. It uses x-rayses to send images to a monitor where the turn civil employee tries to detect metallic objects, drugs, tickets and arms that take the passengers. X-rayses penetrate until tenth of inch underneath the skin, explained the Reformation newspaper yesterday. The Ombudsman, the state but independent National Commission of the Human rights, showed that he gave to beginning to an office complaint "before the rejection of users of the Airport the International of the City of Mexico".

This device is apparently new. It's been in the news for the past few days.
As for different treatment for passengers arriving from South and Central America, that is old news. Baggage from those flights is always delivered in carousel no. 8 and there is a dedicated customs area for those flights. All bags (checked and carry-on) are x-rayed and, instead of the random "fiscal stoplight", the opening of bags is decided by customs officers at their sole discretion.
