After spending time with his own mother, Dolores, Carl Trujillo and his son Thomas celebrated with community members at the Women’s Health Center Mother’s Day Walk at Solana Center.
There’s an old saying, “When Mama’s not happy, nobody’s happy!” And the needs of moms in northern New Mexico reflect the most critical issues facing us today. Record budget deficits caused in part by government corruption and mismanagement have led to serious cuts in needed services including health care and education. State employees forced to take unpaid furlough days have less money to provide for their families. And the state government’s financial crisis means less grant money available for vital programs for preventing teen pregnancy and domestic violence.
We can fix these problems, but first we must start by cleaning up state government so that our tax dollars and government resources can be focused where they’re most needed — on the people of northern New Mexico.
Carl Trujillo’s wife, Ellen, signs up for the Susan B. Komen Walk for the Cure to benefit breast cancer research at the Women’s Health Fair at DeVargas Mall.
It’s a well-known fact that when the women in a community thrive, the entire community thrives. But New Mexico’s women face special challenges when it comes to health. Over 25% of NM residents are uninsured, many of them women and children. Domestic violence rates are among the highest in the nation and increasing. Teen pregnancy is a serious problem.
We must work within the diverse array of cultures in New Mexico to find ways to solve these problems, and to ensure that women in our community, and our children, are treated with the dignity and respect that all of our citizens are entitled to.
Today, my wife Ellen and I had the privilege of joining hundreds of our fellow community members in the march for fair immigration policies. The march was in protest of the recently enacted, potentially discriminatory immigration law in Arizona, but more than that, it was a deeply meaningful statement about the rights of every person to be treated with basic respect and dignity.
Unfortunately, the Arizona law does little to keep our borders truly safe, while creating a situation that could result in people who are in the US, including citizens of New Mexico who are visiting Arizona, being legally being harassed for the simple fact that they are Hispanic. That’s not fair or right.
We must find ways of protecting our citizens from the drugs, weapons and violence that spill over the border, but we must never do so at the expense of the values that America stands for — respect, dignity and freedom for all. We must never lose sight of our history — America is a nation of immigrants and it is this rich diversity of cultures that has made us strong.
As your state representative, I pledge to do all I can to prevent New Mexico from ever enacting such a potentially dangerous and discriminatory law as the one in Arizona. More than that, I will work to create and support immigration policies that don’t promote racism in the name of false security.
Blessings to you and your family this May Day.
