Albuquerque Stands Up for Immigrants

Check out this article written by WRL organizer, Gloria Walker:

“Responding to community outrage, members of the Albuquerque City Council unanimously withdrew proposed anti-immigration Resolution 10-90.

The controversial resolution stated that “Illegal immigration negatively impacts the City of Albuquerque in many different ways.” Calling for the federal government to increase border security, it stated, “the citizens of the City of Albuquerque have been victimized by crime due to illegal immigration.”

Albuquerque citizens, however, disagreed and organized to let their representatives on the city council know that they support immigrants rights.”
