Social Security Institute releases names of owners of day care centers

Weeks after the Social Security Institute promised to make public the names of owners of the 1,500 privately owned day care centers that operate under license from the Social Security Institute (IMSS). The lists are available online. The day care centers are a lucrative business; the IMSS pays each center about Ps. 2,200 per child per month. The ownership lists are predictably stocked with names of politicians and their family members, across the political spectrum. Some of the listed owners tried to deny their relationship, while others pointed out — rightly so — that the centers with which they are associated are run by non-profit organizations, and their names are listed because they are trustees of the groups.
