State of New Mexico Archives: on Families & Children


Nels Mitchell: Strong supporter of the Violence Against Women Act

Mitchell said he would work with Rep. Mike Simpson to ensure funding for the Idaho National Laboratory and to protect the Boulder White Clouds, and, unlike Sen. Risch, would be a strong supporter of the Violence Against Women Act.

Mitchell said the 2014 election will be pivotal. "In 2014, we the people must reclaim the US Senate from the control of career politicians. It is not too late for the Senate to reestablish credibility and restore the confidence of the American people."

Susana Martinez: Amber Alert whenever a New Mexico child is abducted

We need to improve our Amber Alert system so that we can issue an alert whenever a New Mexico child is abducted and police believe the child is in danger, even when the suspect is a family member.

And we must improve our ability to protect children from abusive homes by allowing case workers to conduct emergency background checks through NCIC.

We need to increase penalties for child abuse and expand Brianna's law to cover all children, not just those under the age of 12.
