Group of city councilors want to reaffirm Albuquerque as ‘immigrant-friendly’

News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A group of city councilors is trying to reaffirm a 16-year-old resolution, declaring Albuquerque an immigrant-friendly city.

City lawmakers voted unanimously in 2000 to declare Albuquerque immigrant friendly. Now, City Councilors Isaac Benton, Klarissa Pena, Pat Davis and Diane Gibson say in light of recent events in the country, they want to continue that by assuring community members that the city supports them and will not tolerate hate, discrimination or harassment.

The memorial was introduced Monday evening and will go for final action at the end of the month.
