Albuquerque, NM – Tonight, the nation turns its ears toward the issue of immigration, and to the Land of Enchantment. Albuquerque plays host to a town hall meeting on the topic that will be broadcast on radio stations across the country. Santa Fe Mayor David Coss and members of New Mexico's immigrant communities will be among those sharing their stories. Marcela Diaz is the director of the statewide immigrant rights group, Somos Un Pueblo Unido, and she says our state is the perfect place to have this discussion.

"Luckily, in New Mexico, we believe cooler heads have prevailed and have not made policy decisions based on misconceptions, xenophobia, divisiveness or hate."

Diaz believes successful policies in New Mexico include allowing immigrants to get a driver's license if they are in the process of changing their status, and allowing immigrants who have grown up in the state pursue a college education. However, she worries that, without comprehensive immigration reform, many New Mexico families will continue to be torn apart. She says members of some of those families will be speaking out tonight.

"We really want to put a human face on the issue and dispel some of the more terrible myths out there regarding the impact of immigration on our communities."
