Mexican maquiladora industry cry foul on new taxes

FILE - In this Jan. 13, 2011 file photo, workers produce mannequins at the Tecma Group, which operates 18 maquiladoras, or assembly-for-export plants, for 33 companies in the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Mexico's Senate is debating President Enrique Pena Nieto's proposed tax reform, a measure that business leaders warn could threaten border assembly plants known as maquiladoras, that have long received tax breaks that would be curtailed under the proposed tax changes. The plants are the lifeblood of border cities such as Ciudad Juarez, which are just recovering from a three-year wave of brutal drug-gang killings. (AP Photo/Raymundo Ruiz, File)
