New Mexico bill would divest police of immigration functions

Bill Richardson
New Mexico Governor

Santa Fe, New Mexico, Feb 10 (EFE) -- The New Mexico state Senate on Thursday passed a bill that prevents local and state police officers from acting as immigration agents. -- The bill's enactment was cheered by immigrant advocates...
Bill Richardson (1995): "These are changing political times where our basic programs are being attacked. Illegal and legal immigration unfairly attacked. We have to band together and that means Latinos in Florida, Cuban-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, South Americans - we have to network better - we have to be more politically minded - we have to put aside party and think of ourselves as Latinos, as Hispanics, more than we have in the past."
