Nationwide ACLU Racial Discrimination Report Highlights New Mexico
By Evan Woodward
Las Cruces, NM – December 10th is celebrated worldwide as International Human Rights Day, and Monday, in observance of the holiday, the American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU released a detailed report on racism in America. The state of New Mexico is used as a negative example numerous times in the publication. A press conference was held in Las Cruces at the ACLU of New Mexico's Southern Regional Office to explain the findings. As KRWG's Evan Woodward reports, the ACLU claims the government is failing to protect the residents of New Mexico from racially discriminatory policies.
