Letter to the Editor: No to Trump

E-mail Print PDF
To all American Citizens: Please do not give President Donald Trump one penny or give in one inch in his strong arm tactics to extort money for his immoral wall. The separation of families and the detention of children has crossed The Red Line of American values and has diminished our credibility in the world.

Letter to the editor: ‘Mitigate by all means appropriate unintended pregnancy’

E-mail Print PDF
The Most Rev. James Wall, Bishop of the Diocese of Gallup wrote a letter to oppose repealing New Mexico’s abortion law, which is at this time unenforceable because of the U. S. Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade.

He states that abortion targets and victimizes a deeply vulnerable population – unborn children and future generations. In support of his position he states that NM is low in educational attainment, economic opportunity, and childhood health and high in poverty.

Editor,

This coming January 2019, the New Mexico State Legislature has an opportunity to make history and vote on proposed legislation to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

State Representative Derrick Lente, a member of Sandia Pueblo tribe, stated it has cleared its first hurdle with an unopposed committee endorsement.

After the inauguration of Democratic Governor — elect Michelle Lujan Grisham — the bill will be introduced, although it is not yet clear if she supports the proposal to rename the state holiday on the second Monday in October.

New Mexico remains strongly attached to its colonial history, but less so to the sailor who was lost at sea and facing a...

Letter to the Editor: Vote with everyone’s future in mind

Editor,

On Nov. 6, everyone is counting on you to make it to the polls and cast your ballot. Since I have already voted, I encourage you to do the same as if your life depended on it since our future is hanging in the balance as it is.

All “Native American” tribes have the most to lose if the Republican GOP gains anymore political ground.

There is the threat of the Donald Trump administration who recently stole the tribal homelands of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe who could not prove they were “under the jurisdiction” of the Federal Government in 1934.

Under Trump, we can expect to see the treaties abrogated; all reservation boundaries lines dissolved; the authority of tribal...
