Increase in tourist taxes

The lower house of Congress has approved steep hikes to two taxes that foreigners pay to enter Mexico, triggering criticism from business groups that are urging the Senate to vote against them.
It's a increase of 630 pesos, up to 1,265 pesos, when you come in by air. See following article in Mexico News Daily.

That's the Mexican way, isn't it? What do you do when increased lawlessness looks like tourism might take an understandable hit? You do the same thing Mexican hoteliers do when tourism revenue lags......increase prices.

Is that what it is? Looks more like politics to me.

I don't expect this will be passed as is by the Senado.
