Las Cruces, NM – Economic Development is a phrase used loosely by politicians and business leaders. It isn't always clear what they are talking about. The rhetoric, frequently coupled with notions of job creation and growth, acts like a steamroller through city hall and the state house to influence ordinances and legislation. One organization which seems to have the corner on the phrase "economic development" in Southern New Mexico is MVEDA, the Mesilla Valley Economic Development Alliance.

Commentary: “The Trump era has given me this persistent feeling of unreality,” wrote journalist Ezra Klein on Twitter earlier this month. “I am watching this, and reporting on it, and covering it, and there’s a part of me that still can’t believe it’s happening, that these tweets are real, that this man is actually the president.”

How does such a prominent journalist remain so innocent?

Commentary: Albuquerque, N.M. -  Today, the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) announced their intent to appeal the 9th Circuit Court’s decision which blocked the Deferred action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program rescission and forced the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) dept. to reinstate DACA renewals.

Attorney General Balderas Sues to Stop Illegal Rollback of Net Neutrality

New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas

Commentary: Santa Fe, NM - Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas joined a coalition of 22 Attorneys General in filing a multistate lawsuit to block the Federal Communications Commission’s illegal rollback of net neutrality. The coalition filed a petition for review in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, formally commencing the lawsuit against the FCC and the federal government.

Commentary: The number $18 billion seems to roll off the tongue. This is the amount that President Trump recently announced he wants Congress to budget for his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. The figure certainly has a ring to it, and to realize how much money this represents, I started researching major infrastructure projects in the U.S. and doing some rudimentary calculations to see how far $18 billion would stretch. I think that this is especially relevant given President Trump’s push for infrastructure funding in other areas.

Commentary: In 2016 we amended the state constitution to change long-standing bail rules. Under those rules, a poor defendant who wasn't a danger to the community or a serious flight risk could linger in jail because s/he couldn't post bond. A wealthier defendant, even a dangerous one, could post bond and be out on the street again. The new rules aimed to change that.

 

Bailbondsfolk complained that the change threatened their livelihood – and was unconstitutional. (A court challenge failed.)
