In the first week they uncovered 31 illegals, about 10% of the total arrested. They were busted for everything from DWI to rape to attempted murder.

The local sentiment is overwhelmingly for this policy.

Like the Arizona law, it is great for smoking out the moonbats. They can’t resist screaming racism.

Texas, Nebraska, Maryland and Pennsylvania are all considering laws similar to Arizona.

Now Albuquerque turns 180 degrees.

Cool. We’re going to enforce the law.

Hearing about this, it sounds oddly like the new Arizona law. They check criminals’ immigration status at a new detention center, where ICE has office space. I heard on the radio yesterday, that after a week they had found about 53 illegals (don’t know out of how many).

I wonder when LA will boycott ABQ.

No, not Richardson.

New Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry keeping a campaign promise.

And it starts to spread. The leftists say “The Republicans in Congress can’t keep saying ‘No’; they’re going to have to join with the Republicans to get ‘comprehensive’ immigration reform.” My rejoinder is now “Good. Let the Republicans in Congress keep saying ‘No!’. The States will take care of this for us and I won’t have to accept citizenship for illegal aliens. Isn’t Federalism wonderful!”

All calculations based on experience elsewhere, fail in New Mexico.”

The morning KKOB host said that since the policy has been implemented 320 people had been processed through the Albuquerque law enforcement system, and of those, 31 were found to be illegal aliens. That's roughly 10%. Also, judging from the various local talk shows in the last few days, public opinion is overwhelmingly for the new policy.

What’s really interesting to me regarding cities claiming they are boycotting AZ or whatever... Who makes that call?
Wouldn’t there need to be a public referendum to approve such a measure? Since most folks are on the side of AZ... you’d think making the Boycott decision is like hammering a nail into your own casket come election time.
I’d say if you’re an incumbant on City Council or the Mayor and have approved the boycott and your constituents don’t agree... ADIOS during the next election. Gives a lot of ammo for anyone who wants to run for office.

Agree, it won’t be long — I was lucky to visit those areas decades ago because they became the hot spots for leftists from Hollywood and elsewhere. Those jerks ruin everything... Now you couldn’t drag me to Santa Fe/Taos.
