  • Santa Fe Police Department looking into hiring Mexican nationals

    http://www.lcsun-news.com/latest/ci_5909340




    SANTA FE (AP) — The Santa Fe Police Department is considering the possibility of recruiting Mexican nationals to fill vacant police jobs.

    Sgts. Gillian Alessio and Marvin Paulk, who are in charge of the department's recruiting and training, said Tuesday they are considering alternative approaches to fill 20 vacancies on the city's 155-person police force.

    But Police Chief Eric Johnson said New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy regulations prohibit non-citizens from serving as police officers.

    Alessio said the Santa Fe police force, like others around the country, is vying to recruit the same 21- to 30-year-olds as the U.S. military, whose need for recruits is taking a toll on the police department.

    "Every day, we get approached by young men and women from Mexico who are in the country legally but are not naturalized," Alessio said.

    "There is a huge pool of people who are dedicated, hardworking and trying to become citizens of this country. They would like nothing better than to devote their time to protecting the communities that they live in," she said.

    The United States speeds up naturalization for foreigners who enlist in the U.S. military, and Alessio asked, "Why can't we do that with law

    That's only the beginning

    50 years from now, the United States will be part of Mexico. It's a war we can't win.

            They're just doing jobs Americans won't do (for minimum wage)!

              So these are people with green cards but not citizens?

                That's why they're called "Mexicans."

                  Like putting a kid in charge of the candy jar!

                  This could be a good thing. After all, think about what could be done. Judge won't grant a search warrant? Send in the Mexican national. Then when it it hits the fan that he/she wasn't supposed to go in they can play the immigrant card and get off. The dopers get busted, the immigrant is let go, and everyone goes home happy.

                  At least, in theory anyway.

                    Honestly, with the way things are going these days, who didn't see this one coming?

                      How does that quote go? if you want to catch a crook, hire a crook?

                        I see this as pretty much of a non-story, assuming the hiring standards of the SF PD are up to snuff. 95% of those Mexican national wannabes are going to get weeded out for reasons other than their citizenship.

                        For those that are otherwise qualified, why not facilitate the citizenship process?

                          What makes you think they are "wetbacks"? I doubt they entered the country illegally. If they are ok to serve in the armed forces why not the police?

                          Anyone that would be considered are most likely applying for citizenship and are probably long time residents, many how have been in this country since childhood and would make fine citizens.

                          Your equating them with drug addicts is incredibly racist and insulting.
