New Mexico Legislature Recognizes the Work of Law Enforcement
Last week, the New Mexico House of Representatives passed a unanimous resolution commending federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies on their collaboration, investigation, and quick response in arresting two suspects in connection with arsons and vandalism at abortion and reproductive health clinics in Albuquerque in December 2007. An identical resolution has also been introduced in the state Senate.
We commend the New Mexico legislature for recognizing law enforcement’s swift and successful investigation into the arsons and vandalism and apprehending and arresting the suspects. Law enforcement’s response should send a clear message that violence against abortion providers and clinics will not be tolerated and that perpetrators of such crimes will be apprehended and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
