Border Security

Mark will order the National Guard to the border, eliminate the sanctuary policies that hide illegal immigrants who commit crimes from federal immigration officials, and do away with other policies that encourage illegal immigration, such as providing taxpayer-funded stimulus checks to illegal immigrants. 

Mark will also create a Border Strike Force within New Mexico’s Department of Public Safety, modeled after a similar and successful initiative in Arizona. It will target border-related crimes, such as cracking down on organized drug trafficking, gun smuggling, human smuggling, stolen vehicles, and violent criminal apprehensions. The Border Strike Force will work with law enforcement agencies at all levels of government to disrupt the cartel’s criminal activity.
