Mexico bill would divest police of immigration functions
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...
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."
