Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission has decided to cut service to shelters that owe due energy bills, an activist said.

Hotel del Migrante manager Sergio Tamai said the agency has cut energy to “El Hijo Pródigo” and “Alfa y Omega” shelters.

Both sites owe the agency about 100,000 pesos or $5,000.

Last month Mexican government delegate Alejandro Ruiz said the Commission was not going to cut energy service.

Tamai held a protest Wednesday at City Hall that included the burning of a piñata that had the face of the commission’s manager.

The activist said a meeting was expected with Delegate Ruiz to discuss the issue.

Tamai said Hotel del Migrante owes about 2 million pesos or $10,000, but his organization reached a payment agreement to avoid service cuts.
