New Mexico Ranks 49th for Child Welfare

Child Welfare Report

Yes, once again we rank at the bottom on issues of child welfare. Yet state representatives are too busy with more important issues like tax cuts for the rich and removing historical symbols to be bothered with such unimportant issues like helping our children. The public has to demand action on this issue from the governor and the state representatives.

With every year our children are at the bottom of this list we increase the number of unemployed voters. We force more people on to programs that the governor is already cutting. We help put people on the street so they can be set afire by people in vans. The police shot them like wild animals. The same police force that views the public as resources for capturing criminals and they call that community policing. 

We must demand early childhood education. We must demand that children who are abused get an attorney. We must demand that jobs and educational resources are on top of the priority list for our elected officials. We must demand that SNAP for children as young as 7 years of age not be taken away.

Here is the email address for comments about SNAP. The public hearing was already held so we should also demand that government also have an action plan for communicating with the public more affectly or their budget should be cut. 

You may also email your comments to HSD-isdrules@state.nm.us or call the Governor’s office at 505-476-2200.
