County leaders reaffirm Bernalillo County’s immigrant-friendly status

Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Leaders in Bernalillo County are speaking out against the president’s promise to round up immigrant families.

County Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada reminded residents Monday that the commission unanimously reaffirmed the county’s commitment to diversity and immigrant-friendly status back in February.

“This means we will not use any county resources to aid ICE in detaining and deporting Burqueño families,” Quezada said.

While the county says it will not aid ICE financially, it’s unclear if they’ll attempt to further protect families from raids promised by the White House.
