New Mexico's largest city curbs federal immigration agents' powers to deport illegals

The city of Albuquerque passed measures on Monday that curb federal officials’ authority to deport illegal immigrants.

The council also prohibited city workers, including police officers, from collecting information on residents’ immigration status and banned the city from spending on federal immigration law enforcement, the outlet reported.

The council meeting brought a number of speakers from the public, with some supporting the council’s intention to enact measures protecting illegal immigrants, while others said the initiatives will put people in danger.

New Mexico is also reportedly among the states with the largest population of illegal immigrants.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly pushed to crackdown on states that have enacted measures aimed to protect illegal immigrants and curb the federal government’s powers to enforce immigration laws.
