Another Mess because they forgot the most important thing...
I think it will be very hard for the new airport to be built in Texcoco. It is always very difficult to expropriate people from their territory in any part of the world to build airport projects, so this will no doubt be any different.
Now, it is up to the Mexican government to offer the farmers an incentive to sell their lands for an offer they just cannot refuse. Nonetheless, these people will probably not relent, because they are just not interested in selling their land at whatever prize and benefits they are offered, because they are just too traditional. The problem (in my opinion) is that even if they are offered a great deal they cannot refuse (secure jobs in the airport and a promising future with new homes with good infrastructure), they will decline it, because they are farmers who cannot just establish themselves anywhere else due to their lack of education. They also have enough reason not to trust the Mexican government and its promises. The government cannot just go in there with bulldozers and invade because things are not done that way. The problem is that everyone will have something to loose if the airport isn't built at Lake Texcoco. By the way, these are not the fault of the current administration, these are problems arising of many years of not properly planning for the future.
