From nowhere near the mainstream headlines, New Mexico's governor has rescinded the states sanctuary status for illegal immigrants and directed the police to inquire about the residency status of anyone arrested. This won't apply to any victim of a crime, but its a start. Look at the video attached to this article for what a mess "sanctuary status" has done to the rule of law in New Mexico.
Nowhere will you find more ungrateful, unfaithful and completely immoral people attracted to a place than somewhere that regards the flouting of the law as a right.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Susana Martinez, Governor of the State of New
Mexico, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the State of New Mexico, do hereby ORDER and DIRECT:
1. Executive Order 2005-019 is rescinded and this Executive Order shall supersede it;
2. State law enforcement officers shall not inquire about the immigration status of crime victims, witnesses, or others who call or approach law enforcement seeking assistance or reporting a crime; and
3. State law enforcement officers shall inquire into the criminal suspect’s immigration status, and report relevant information to federal immigration enforcement authorities.
THIS ORDER supersedes any other previous orders, proclamations, or directives to the extent they are in conflict. This Executive Order shall take effect immediately.
Since more Americans are killed every year by illegals than in all the wars combined, I say SUPPORT OUR CITIZENS. Help send law breakers to jail or send them home.
Ha, OK. That was a joke. If you're still reading, I hope to hell law enforcement spends more time making sure they increase the unsolved homicide rate in New Mexico than they are chasing illegals. I just hate that SUPPORT OUR TROOPS - BRING THEM HOME crap.
Nevertheless, it sends a strong message to anyone living illegally in New Mexico that you better announce yourself, start trying to gain citizenship and show a little damn respect to the country you think is so great you left your own to come here.
