The lion and the chihuaha, Pelosi v. Shahid

In regards to the Pelosi v. Shahid debacle,I don’t believe shahid will ever beat Pelosi, I mean he has nice views and I don’t doubt he’s a great person ,I like his ideas ,but I question his reasoning and leadership because he’s quite immature to be challenging a 17 term congresswoman and speaker of the house. Nancy Pelosi gets national publicity on a weekly basis and is well connected (and loved by the American people)and it’s almost disrespectful for him to challenge such a scion of american politics that is entrenched in removing a wanna be dictator from our White House. You have to pay your dues, Shahid should just be glad if he gets into congress and then like a true politician learn his craft in the legislature and earns the right to a position like Pelosi’s.Shahid is barking up the wrong tree he should go against someone less influential to enter congress and work from there ,that’s why I question his reasoning. I know he’s idealistic , but it’s like a 110 pound 22 year old (pumping his chest ,saying he’ll win!!) while getting in the ring with Mike Tyson, something’s you just don’t do.It’s such a monumental task to go against Pelosi, I wonder if Shahid knows he’ll lose and is just seeking attention, time will surely tell, trust me.

Update: Police Shooting Involving State Police in Albuquerque

This update names the officer involved and what led up to the shooting.

Albuquerque, NM – On January 21, 2020, a Multi-Agency Task Force which was led by the New Mexico State Police was called to investigate a police shooting on Interstate 25 northbound, near mile marker 231 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

At approximately 10:00 a.m., New Mexico State Police Sergeant Joshua Perea who was assigned to the traffic safety operation in Albuquerque, conducted a welfare check on a blue Jeep Cherokee that was parked on the shoulder of Interstate 25 northbound, near mile marker 231.  As Sgt. Perea checked on the Jeep Cherokee, he was contacted via radio by a State Police Officer who was traveling north on Interstate 25 near his location of a male walking towards him with a handgun. The male was identified as Roman Craig (26) of Albuquerque, NM.  Sergeant Perea observed Craig walking towards him holding a gun and gave Craig commands to drop the handgun which he ignored. Sergeant Perea drew his department issued handgun and continued to give Craig commands to drop the handgun. Craig raised the handgun andpointed it towards Sergeant Perea.  At that time, Sergeant Perea fired once towards Craig, striking him.  Craig fell to the ground and he was taken into custody.  Emergency aid was rendered to Craig on scene.  He was transported by emergency personnel to the University of New Mexico Hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

Upon Craig’s release from the hospital, he was booked into the Bernalillo County Metro Detention Center for Aggravated Assault upon a Peace Officer with a Deadly Weapon.

The Death Of America: A Trial without Evidence

During the Donald Trump impeachment trial the managers from the United States Congress are submitting and requesting vital and relevant evidence to be presented to the public and to be heard regarding the impeachment of Donald Trump. The Senate, which seems to be biased against all things the congressional managers are requesting, is voting down anything and everything that has to do with evidence that would find Donald Trump Guilty;This is the end of the American system of checks and balances and the integrity of the America system of government. By protecting the president, republican senators in the Senate Are paving the way for American to become and oligarch. Long gone are the days of ” no one being above the law” and “anyone can become president if they work hard” . Because trump has successfully seduced half the country and has seduced the republican side of the United States Senate, he can now do whatever ever he likes, what this means is your rights and the great idea of what America should be , has just died tonight.

Attorney General Balderas Joins Multistate Effort to Protect the Rights of Asylum-Seekers

Santa Fe, NM—-Attorney General Balderas today joined a coalition of 20 attorneys general in filing a comment letter to protect the rights of asylum-seekers. Under a new interim final rule, the Trump Administration is effectively attempting to ignore asylum claims by sending people, many of whom are fleeing violence and persecution, to third countries that have signed asylum cooperative agreements with the federal government. The rule, which went into immediate effect, will block states from welcoming asylum-seekers who make significant cultural and economic contributions to communities across the country and threatens to tear families apart.

“We have a humanitarian obligation to help and protect families fleeing from violence and political corruption

in other countries, and the Trump administration’s latest attempt to turn its back on these vulnerable people is

un-American and cruel,” said Attorney General Balderas. “We will continue to fight for those without a voice

and to stop these horrific policies.”

Giving asylum-seekers a safe haven from persecution is an essential value of the United States. In contrast, the Trump Administration’s interim final rule harms thousands of already vulnerable individuals by barring them from seeking protection in the United States and forcing them into dangerous circumstances in third countries that are not equipped to handle their claims. Currently, Guatemala is the only country where an asylum cooperative agreement is officially in effect. However, Guatemala has insufficient staff to handle humanitarian claims. There are only 12 officials working on asylum cases in the entire country, and only three of them are tasked with interviewing applicants. The federal government has already announced agreements with Honduras and El Salvador and under the interim final rule this process could apply to those countries and any other country other than Canada that signs an asylum cooperative agreement with the United States. Disturbingly, the rule provides no safeguards against family separation. In fact, it has no requirement that families who arrived together in the United States be removed to the same country, raising the specter of additional trauma that could have significant health consequences for families and children.

Under the rule, asylum-seekers will be subjected to an additional screening to determine if they should be barred from applying for asylum in the United States. During the screening, asylum-seekers must affirmatively state a fear of persecution or torture in another country that has signed an asylum cooperative agreement. However, asylum-seekers will only receive a written notice of this condition and nothing in the new regulation requires the federal government to provide notice in a language the asylum-seeker can actually read and understand. For individuals who are fleeing violence and traveling on foot for thousands of miles, this is an extremely high burden that requires an extensive understanding of U.S. immigration laws and a working knowledge of the conditions of countries they may have never even visited. With limited time to prepare a response and potentially without access to legal counsel, the additional screening risks simply being an empty, discriminatory formality that violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. In the comment letter, the coalition also argues that the rule is arbitrary and capricious and is contrary to the Immigration and Nationality Act.

In submitting the comment letter, Attorney General Balderas is joined by the attorneys general of California,

Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada,

New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, and the District of Columbia.

Trump Impeachment process Begins.

Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi has Formally announced the Trump impeachment inquiry will begin.This will begin an investigation that will look into trumps abuse of power And to see if he has failed to uphold the oath of office.

Many Democrats are happy that the impeachment process has begun but it is a dangerous risk,if the impeachment process fails Trump will be seen as a martyr and his base may become radicalized.Many sources say that Trump is lying but his followers continue to believe him even though he has made outrageous statements.Further allegations say that Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate Biden and Biden’s son which is what caused the impeachment inquiry to begin.

New Mexico To Remain Blue State in 2020

During Donald Trump’s last visit at the Santa Ana Star Center he claimed that New Mexico would be turned red in 2020. In order for New Mexico to be turned into a red state, Republicans would have to convert Albuquerque to red, which will not happen considering the major riots during trumps last visit and its large blue population and Trump would also have to turn Santa Fe and all of the Espanola valley red,which isn’t going to happen.Finally,Las Cruces does have a traditionally conservative NMSU but the city is very blue and progressive and it would be a monumental task to turn it red.It doesn’t hurt to be positive, But as for 2020,New Mexico will be blue.
