Our Accomplishments

El CENTRO’s members have organized tirelessly since our inception to improve the lives of low-wage workers and families in New Mexico. Some examples of our victories include:

  • El CENTRO has worked to mitigate the impact of the broken immigration system by successfully passing policies to ensure that local law enforcement does not overstep its authority and enforce federal immigration laws.
  • As a key partner in the NM Minimum Wage Coalition, we have worked to raise the minimum wage at the state level as well as in Albuquerque and  Bernalillo County.
  • El CENTRO has been at the the forefront of campaigns in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County to fight back against immigration enforcement programs and protect our communities. We drastically lowered the number of deportations in Albuquerque by working to modify policies at the Metropolitan Detention Center to minimize entanglement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
