Skip to comments.Police recruiters make pitch to hire noncitizens
Posted on 05/16/2007 10:32:26 PM PDT by george76
The Santa Fe Police Department is looking at the possibility of recruiting Mexican nationals to fill vacancies on the city police force, say sergeants in charge of training and recruiting.
Sgts. Gillian Alessio and Marvin Paulk told the city's Public Safety Committee on Tuesday that they are trying to think outside the box to fill 20 vacancies on the 155-person force.
New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy regulations currently prohibit noncitizens from serving as police officers, Police Chief Eric Johnson said later.
Alessio told the city panel: ``Every day, we get approached by young men and women from Mexico who are in the country legally but are not naturalized. There is a huge pool of people who are dedicated, hard-working and trying to become citizens of this country. They would like nothing better than to devote their time to protecting the communities that they live in.''
Some cities in other states already hire noncitizens as police officers.
Both the city of Santa Fe and the state of New Mexico have policies against police officers trying to enforce federal immigration laws.

Why don’t they simplify things and declare their city part of Mexico. All doubt would then be removed.
The SantaFe police chief and the city council should be arrested immediately. Filthy rotten bastards.
This is sad. Sad for America. Just making the problem worse. And who will these “employees” be loyal to? Other non-citizen Mexicans? Another Pandora’s box thanks to the pro-illegal immigration mob that is ruining this country, its system of laws, its borders, its soverignty, its citizenship, and its national security -—
WHEN DOES THE INSANITY STOP ??
hey if it brings the extreme integrity and sense of duty Mexican police forces are noted for world-wide, I’m all for it.
I know. With every passing day, it seems there is something that drives a stake in the heart of those who love Liberty and wish our Republic saved. When these traitors in Congress(both parties) ram this bill through, they will be all smiles on TV, telling us how "great this bill will be for America." At that point, I will through a brick through the screen! We are witnessing the death knell for America if this passes.
OK, I get that Santa Fe is looking to add hispanic officers to its police roster. But do they expect anyone to believe that in Santa Fe, in New Mexico, there are no hispanic americans at all, who might be interested in the job?
States should ban this in their constitutions.
It's going to be a very bloody civil war.
We are witnessing the death knell for America if this passes.
I never thought that I would see a government that would operate totally to ITS OWN SATISFACTION with total disregard for the American citizen and the overall integrity of our country. The government is OUT OF CONTROL like a runaway train. The government can no longer be trusted -— and that is a serious condemnation.
They are just taking their Que from those in D.C. as they get ready to legalize 30 million illegal aliens.
My poor babies!
4 million people in the bay area and they have to go to foreign nationals to fill 20 vacancies? Hmmm Doesn’t pass the smell test.
“Idiot wind, blowing like a circle around my skull,
From the Grand Coulee Dam to the Capitol.
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth,
You’re an idiot, babe.
It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe.”
We are witnessing the death knell for America if this passes.”
The death knell for America rang already. All we are hearing now are the echoes.
No government can EVER be trusted. Listen to George Washington.
These aren't "jobs Americans won't do," they're jobs THEY DON'T WANT Americans to do! It's hard to be outraged more than I am already without being just plain tuckered out!
Isn't there something in the Declaration of Independence about government not being responsible to the citizens??
Damn, I just can't seem to remember that. Can anyone help me out here?
this is how the feudal lords of mexico take over the US. create a state of corruption here.

They're NOT going to be satisfied with just the city. They want the whole
state, country, continent! There now, I got it right. ;o)
Should we start calling burglars undocumented guests?
No it hasn’t. America is great and prospering. Why are you a half glass empty type of person. The only question I have is what is wrong with people in Santa Fe who don’t want a job on the police force? There must be something wrong with the way they are treated or something because most cities have no trouble filling jobs.
The hideous violence of the Mexican border town's narcotrafficates will be right in Santa Fe NM inside of a decade.
People will wonder 'How did this happen?!' when they finally read about it on the cover of Newsweek in 2011.
That is why they can’t get people to work there. The highest person makes 42,000 dollars a year before taxes. You may have just answered everyone’s questions. I know that there are a few bennies, but 100 dollars for language. You can never really make over average American Wage.
Ugh. Did you have to remind me. LOL I'm so close to the fire, I'm already getting burned. They've already over populated NM. ;o)
Thats what happens with a lot of smaller cities. Guys start there to get a foot in the door, and then transfer to a larger city for better pay.
They need to bump the salaries at least 50% if they want to get and keep good people. Hiring foreigners when you aren't willing to pay a decent salary isn't an answer.
In the article they mention that they are recruiting from San Diego. But San Diego cops make probably double what Santa Fe is offering, and Oregon cops probably make at least 50% more. So if they think they can seriously recruit people without raising their salaries they are dreaming.
I don't think they have to look that far to fill those positions; they should send a notice over to the National Guard armory in town, and recruit the guys coming home from overseas. Pay a decent wage, and they should have no problem hiring as many as they want.
This must be what the last days of the Roman Empire was like.
The liberals are launching a full court press against us, and they are winning.
Disgraceful! New Mexico might as well go back to Old Mexico.....
Disgraceful! New Mexico might as well go back to Old Mexico.....
Remember the Alamo.....there are going to be MANY p@ssed off Mexican-Americans (REAL ONES) who did it legally, and have no love for these criminals who are gonna get a pass from the reprobate Congress who want to let them in as a REWARD FOR BREAKING THE LAW, and not following procedure.
The Washington government has made ALOT of mistakes in my days -— but this takes the cake. They just do not give a damn about America, the will of its REAL people — they are just pandering to their elitist agendas and destroying America in the process.
Maybe they can’t find 20 citizens who want a job where they have to give a pass to illegal aliens.
That is a great picture.
What is MIZARU...?
Do you have a problem with legal immigrants who want to become American citizens ?
You might want to consider how your forefathers arrived here ...
So many donuts
So little time
Exactly, they look donut bloated, lol.
“this is how the feudal lords of mexico take over the US. create a state of corruption here.”
Don’t forget the feudal lords in Washington.
