Good evening Albuquerque,

As our city continues to face historically difficult challenges like a global pandemic and dismantling racism, we are now facing a threat of force being sent into our community. Let me be clear—there is no place for Trump’s secret police in our city. 

If this was more than a stunt, these politicians would support constitutional crime fighting efforts that work for our community, not turning Albuquerque into a federal police state.

We welcome partnerships in constitutional crime fighting that are in step with our community – but this is a bait and switch excuse. These forces do not abide by the reforms implemented under the DOJ, and will break the trust APD and our community have invested years in rebuilding.

We will not sell out our own community, or our own police department, for this obvious political agenda; as they try to incite violence by targeting our city and our residents.

Operation Legend is not real crime fighting; it’s politics standing in the way of police work and makes us less safe. The President’s own words show he’s ready to incite violence in Democratic cities as a re-election strategy built on gaslighting immigrants and people of color.

Our Chief of Police and City Attorney are standing up with us to protect our residents and keep our community safe, you can see their comments here.  

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

-Mayor Tim Keller
