Fire Prompts Emergency Declaration By Bernalillo County, Bear Euthanized After Attack

Immigrants in New Mexico illegally are more likely to face deportation orders from judges than immigrants nationally. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports a new study by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University found that 83 percent of undocumented immigrants in New Mexico were ordered deported by judges since October. That goes against a trend nationally of dropping deportation orders by judges. The report found those declined to 42 percent. Thirty-eight immigrants from New Mexico got deportation orders from a judge in El Paso since the fiscal year began in October and eight were allowed to stay.
