IMMIGRATION

The LWVSNM has an active Immigration Reform Committee.  Read about their most recent proposed activities.  League members’ input is encouraged in early August.

Advocacy Statement

The LWVSNM Committee for Humane Immigration Reform is a group of League members who have met since February 2019 to study the impact of the humanitarian crisis in our border region stemming from the administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policies. Our goals are to raise awareness among League members at the local, state and national levels — and also among the general public — and to press the League to lobby for reform of the immigration system. Read the drafted Advocacy Statement for Humane Immigration Reform which was approved by both the LWVSNM Board and the LWVNM Board. Any additional changes will be posted here.
