Politics: Enter at your own risk

"It is disheartening and disgusting that Michelle Martens will only be serving 12 years in prison after contributing to one of the most horrific crimes in our state's history. 'Tough on crime' district attorney Raul Torrez should be ashamed that this monster is not going to spend the rest of her life in prison. We must do everything in our power to protect the innocent and this plea deal is a complete failure by an elected official to execute the most important part of his job: providing justice for an abused and vulnerable child who was raped and murdered at the hands of pure evil." – Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi

51 rsThe announcement this week of a Supreme Court vacancy has reminded everyone how critical it is for Republicans to retain control of the U.S. Senate.

Today, Steve Pearce voted for a so-called "compromise immigration bill" that included extreme anti-immigrant provisions. The bill had both Steve Pearce and Donald Trump's support, which tells you about all you need to know.

Pearce also supported an even more extreme bill which failed earlier this week. That bill contained an even larger list of anti-immigrant provisions, including cuts to legal immigration that would keep families separated, criminalizing undocumented immigrants, no protections for DREAMers, and eliminating protections for people seeking asylum.

ALBUQUERQUE — Steve Pearce, candidate for Governor of New Mexico, released the following statement on immigration today:

"My opponent is saying no to compromise, no to fixing our immigration system, and yes to more of the same. My opponent wants the issues, not the solution. This is epitomized with the insistence that the only solution for DREAMERs is a bill so unpopular it wasn't even considered when Democrats controlled the House, Senate, and the White House. My opponent shutdown the government over this bill. My opponent voted against a solution to our current policy of separating families over this bill. My opponent voted against securing our border over this bill.

It has been a busy week of fun, events and visits.

Monday: I had a great time in TorC with the folks of Sierra County talking about water and crime. Water is the most important resource in NM, other than our children, and we must fight to protect it from both instate bad actors and from out of state demandors.

State Auditor Wayne Johnson recently announced an independent approach to identify gaps in our criminal justice system. "Crime continues to be a huge problem in Albuquerque – it affects our entire state. It's long past time that we find out what's going on with our criminal justice system."

ALBUQUERQUE – Steve Pearce announced today that the House of Representatives passed a water bill that includes an amendment he authored that will require the federal government to repay communities for costs incurred on water projects. Currently, the federal government owes a significant amount of money to New Mexico communities for water projects, including the Town of Bernalillo, which is in Lujan Grisham's congressional district.
"Michelle Lujan Grisham has been asleep on the job for years with no legislative accomplishments to speak of," said RPNM Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi. "She used her official position to profit off government contracts that reek of corruption and has neglected to assist a community in her district. Steve Pearce has proven to be a fierce advocate for all New Mexicans, without regard for whether they are in the Congressional District he represents. This episode represents an embarrassing lack of leadership by Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has failed New Mexico once again. New Mexicans deserve better."
