Downtown Albuquerque -
More than 40 members of the New Mexico Crusaders for Justice stood in front of City Hall sharing stories about their loved ones who died as a result of homicide.
The group is wanting Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham to call a special session to focus on crime laws. One request of the group is to eliminate the Arnold Tool for pre-trial detention. The Arnold Tool assessment was developed by billionaires Laura and John Arnold. It was implemented in 2017 for New Mexico courts.
The New Mexico Crusaders for Justice advocacy group wants to be heard by lawmakers and have stronger crime enforcement.
We reached out to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's office to see if she is going to call a special session. There was no response from her press secretary.
