ALBUQUERQUE — Steve Pearce, candidate for Governor of New Mexico, is calling for a sustained focus on breaking the cycle of crime throughout the state by providing reformed parolees with jobs, housing, and life skills as well as connecting employers with qualified candidates across the state.

Pearce today addressed the enrollees, graduates, and staff of Under His Construction, a non-profit organization in Albuquerque, which has demonstrated a record of success in graduating dozens of reformed parolees, and led them to successful employment and productive lives.

"Too many of New Mexico's communities are plagued with crime, joblessness, and a loss of hope. Far too many of our young people are turning to drugs and illegal activity. When those mistakes lead them to jail they too often begin a journey into a life of crime, a cycle that destroys individuals, families, and communities.

ALBUQUERQUE — Steve Pearce, candidate for Governor of New Mexico, will join Under His Construction, a non-profit organization dedicated to stopping recidivism and providing jobs and life skills to ex-offenders, this Saturday in South Valley.

Event:
Steve Pearce, candidate for Governor, will join Under His Construction representative Chris Cleveland to announce a new program to reduce crime and recidivism in New Mexico.

"It is disheartening and disgusting that Michelle Martens will only be serving 12 years in prison after contributing to one of the most horrific crimes in our state's history. 'Tough on crime' district attorney Raul Torrez should be ashamed that this monster is not going to spend the rest of her life in prison. We must do everything in our power to protect the innocent and this plea deal is a complete failure by an elected official to execute the most important part of his job: providing justice for an abused and vulnerable child who was raped and murdered at the hands of pure evil." – Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi

51 rsThe announcement this week of a Supreme Court vacancy has reminded everyone how critical it is for Republicans to retain control of the U.S. Senate.

Today, Steve Pearce voted for a so-called "compromise immigration bill" that included extreme anti-immigrant provisions. The bill had both Steve Pearce and Donald Trump's support, which tells you about all you need to know.

Pearce also supported an even more extreme bill which failed earlier this week. That bill contained an even larger list of anti-immigrant provisions, including cuts to legal immigration that would keep families separated, criminalizing undocumented immigrants, no protections for DREAMers, and eliminating protections for people seeking asylum.

ALBUQUERQUE — Steve Pearce, candidate for Governor of New Mexico, released the following statement on immigration today:

"My opponent is saying no to compromise, no to fixing our immigration system, and yes to more of the same. My opponent wants the issues, not the solution. This is epitomized with the insistence that the only solution for DREAMERs is a bill so unpopular it wasn't even considered when Democrats controlled the House, Senate, and the White House. My opponent shutdown the government over this bill. My opponent voted against a solution to our current policy of separating families over this bill. My opponent voted against securing our border over this bill.

It has been a busy week of fun, events and visits.

Monday: I had a great time in TorC with the folks of Sierra County talking about water and crime. Water is the most important resource in NM, other than our children, and we must fight to protect it from both instate bad actors and from out of state demandors.
