Representative Miguel Garcia: Redistricting, Jim Crow, Jesus Soiling His "Undies" and Cultural Strangulation
In the attack Garcia accused Judge Hall of erasing a half century of civil and human rights victories that, "Our Hispano people so valiantly fought to eliminate discrimination in voting and hiring, in equal access to public facilities, and in the instilling of human dignity by outlawing those demeaning and inhumane “No Niggers, Dogs, or Mexicans Allowed” placards at our places of business." Representative Garcia also said “Competitive districts is a politically charged term for diffusing and eliminating Democratic Hispano voting strength."
Garcia addressed what he perceived as a complete betrayal by a Judge who is also a member of the Democratic Party with these words, "Even Jesus Christ soiled his undies every now and then."

Garcia ended his press release with this question: "Where's El Aquila Negra, The Cisco Kid, and The Lone Ranger and Tonto when we need them. For sure they were not in Judge Hall's court room."

When the Governor took office at the beginning of 2011, the General Services Department owned four airplanes, the Department of Public Safety owned three airplanes and a helicopter, and the Department of Game and Fish owned one airplane.
In August of last year, Governor Martinez sold a 2005 Cessna Citation Bravo, the state’s luxury jet, for $2.5 million. DPS sold a 1979 Cessna Skymaster in September and a 2007 Adam A500 in November. Both of the State Police aircraft were deemed too costly to repair and no longer effective in carrying out the department’s mission.
Potential savings can be difficult to accurately forecast because of variables such as aviation fuel costs and flight time, as well as potential expenses that can be associated with the sales process.
The ten New Mexico legislators, all Democrats, signed a legal brief that supports the massive 2009 law that imposes unprecedented controls on the health care delivery system in the U.S. through nearly 3,000 pages of statute and countless rules related to the regulation. Those supporting Obamacare and signing the brief include State Senators Dede Feldman, Mary Jane Garcia, Cisco McSorley, Jerry Ortiz y Pino, and Peter Wirth. Also signing the brief were New Mexico Representatives Gail Chasey, Eleanor Chavez, Miguel Garcia, Mimi Stewart and Al Park.
Many state Attorneys General around the nation have successfully challenged the constitutionality of the law in federal district and appellate courts.
