For decades, our political leaders have accepted the high crime levels as a way of life in New Mexico. The reality is we have lax laws passed by political leaders who cluelessly ignore our most pressing crisis. This has led to the hijacking of our beautiful way of life.  Now we all live with the fear that we can’t keep our families safe. Albuquerque is one of the most violent cities in the nation. It doesn’t have to be this way!  


We badly need new leadership who won’t tolerate what has been tolerated for so long.  Mark believes that from the federal-level down to our smallest towns more must be done to get our crime epidemic under control. As your US Senator, Mark will work tirelessly with the Department of Justice to get more federal task force resources and additional assistant US Attorneys to put criminals away. 


Mark also supports measures to eliminate sanctuary city laws around the country that allow illegal immigrants who commit crimes to be released back into our communities, rather than being deported.


It will take years to reform the laws that let criminals out quickly on state and local charges. However, federal laws have teeth, and we will go after criminals in a way that will keep them off our streets.
