Albuquerque, NM – Tonight, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas released the following statement in response to President Trump’s decision to end DACA:

“With the decision to end DACA, 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 future police officers, members of the military, doctors and teachers will create an unacceptable public safety threat in the United States. My office will continue to use all means necessary to push back against harmful rollbacks that target Dreamers.”

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