FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 5, 2017

Contact: James Hallinan (505) 660-2216

Albuquerque, NM – This afternoon, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas released the following statement regarding President Trump and Attorney General Sessions’ decision on DACA:

“I am currently working with my fellow state attorneys general to build a strong case for our Dreamers because President Trump is compromising the safety of our communities and our nation, and he is putting the security of thousands of New Mexicans who contribute to our classrooms, public safety and economy at risk. Losing hundreds of thousands of hard-working Americans such as future police officers, members of the military, doctors and teachers will create an unacceptable public safety threat in the United States.”

At the center of the seal is a gradient circle with a dark blue roman-inspired Pillar in the shape of New Mexico.
