Mexico to Boost Tapping of Phones and e-Mail with US Aid: Calderon is seeking to expand monitoring of drug gangs; Washington also may have access to the data.

QUOTE: Mexico is expanding its ability to tap telephone calls and e-mail using money from the U.S. government, a move that underlines how the country’s conservative government is increasingly willing to cooperate with the United States on law enforcement. The expansion comes as President Felipe Calderon is pushing to amend the Mexican Constitution to allow officials to tap phones without a judge’s approval in some cases.
