28th Amendment Committee Meeting POSTPONED

July 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

MEETING POSTPONED

Meanwhile, below is an action on July 16 that some  might want to consider participating in. This blurb is from the Las Cruces newspaper. The meeting was mentioned by Peter Wirth at the recent Families Belong Together rally. He represented it as an opportunity to impact how money is being spent on these immigration centers. This is an opportunity for public comment.

I believe the meeting is at 6 pm.

New Mexico may seek oversight on immigration detention centers

Sarah Macaraeg, New Mexico In Depth, Published 5:13 p.m. MT June 29, 2018

After spending five months locked up inside two different Immigrations and Customs Enforcement prisons in New Mexico, Manuel Gonzalez will soon be among the first ICE detainees in the country to have state legislators formally learn about his experience.

On July 16, members of the Legislature’s Courts, Corrections and Justice committee will have the chance to hear from former detainees like Gonzalez, as well as immigrant communities and their advocates.

The committee hearing at the Roundhouse, which will include an hour for public comment, is intended to educate lawmakers, some of whom hope to start a conversation about whether to exert more state oversight on private prisons in New Mexico that incarcerate immigrants.

Please contact us for more information, or if you are interested in attending or joining the 28th Amendment Committee.
