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.

That’s a deal that Congress should not only reject, but condemn in the strongest possible terms for the sinister choice that it is.
