They said that when asking for the documentation, the officers of the Sedena They told them that their lands are part of the area that will be expropriated for the construction of the complementary works to the Felipe Ángeles airport, which, based on an appraisal, cost 270 pesos per square meter.
The inhabitants of this place affirmed that they do not refuse to sell their land, but they demanded a fair price for them, since they warned that they have all the services such as water and electricity, so the cost per square meter is one thousand pesos, not 270 pesos, as they were told.
