Create a Border Violence Unit
Seek a partnership with New Mexico’s Attorney General to institute a Border Violence Unit to see that all residents of Doña Ana County receive fair treatment.
It is not the job of local law enforcement to interpret or enforce immigration laws. I envision a unit that will advocate for all residents right to receive protection by local law enforcement.
Too often crimes are not reported due to fear of questionable immigration status. Crimes that if not investigated can lead to individuals posing a greater threat to communities.
