DPNM Chairwoman Debra Haaland: Governor Martinez Should Urge Her Own Party to Act on Immigration Reform Before Criticizing President Obama

Albuquerque, N.M. – Today, Debra Haaland, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party, released the following statement slamming Governor Martinez for criticizing President Obama for taking action to address our broken immigration system.

“Republicans in Congress have time and again blocked attempts to fix our broken immigration system, and President Obama’s actions are a direct result of Republicans’ lack of political will to address the issue. Governor Martinez should urge her own party to act on immigration reform before criticizing President Obama,” said Debra Haaland, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.
