Less than a month after the devastation of Hurricane Otis in Acapulco, Mexico, the country’s congress found themselves once again tackling an out-of-this-world issue – aliens. The controversial and attention-seeking journalist, José Jaime Maussan, took center stage along with a group of cohorts to regale the lower chamber of congress with their claims of unearthly discoveries.

This cosmic presentation, lasting over three hours, showcased what Maussan and company insisted were photographs and X-rays of a “new species” of a “non-human being.” Familiar faces shook their heads in disbelief as Maussan, who previously made headlines with his display of supposed alien skeletons from Peru, once again attempted to pull the wool over their eyes.
Those in attendance couldn’t help but snicker at the skeletons’ uncanny resemblance to the beloved movie character, E.T. But Maussan didn’t stop there. His audacious claims continued with the alleged revelation that the specimens they presented lacked essential human components such as lungs and ribs. To support these wild assertions, anthropologist Roger Zuniga of San Luis Gonzaga National University in Peru chimed in, insisting that the creatures were indeed legitimate and even provided a letter signed by 11 researchers backing up their outlandish claims.
However, even with this so-called “evidence,” doubts persisted. Skepticism stemmed from Maussan’s previous shenanigans in 2017 where his supposed alien corpses were debunked by an investigation from Peru’s prosecutor’s office as nothing more than cleverly constructed dolls. But Zuniga brushed off these past embarrassments, asserting that the current specimens were the real deal and not to be dismissed.
Adding more fuel to the intergalactic fire, Argentine surgeon Celestino Adolfo Piotto boldly suggested that these supposed extraterrestrial beings were actually an advanced form of humans or even “our descendants.” The event even featured an appearance from Mexican rapper Claudio Yarto, who took the opportunity to share his personal encounters with UFOs.
In a surprising turn, lawmaker Sergio Gutiérrez Luna from President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s party stood in defense of Maussan, proclaiming that all ideas and proposals, regardless of how far-fetched, should be open for debate. With claims of UFO sightings and alleged alien discoveries reverberating in the hallowed halls of congress, it seemed like Mexico wasn’t just dealing with natural disasters, but otherworldly ones as well.
