Chairman Steve Pearce
New Mexico State Police served the pastor of New Hope Revival Church in Sierra County Mother’s Day with a Cease & Desist order for his House of Worship.
The following is a statement from State Republican Party Chairman Steve Pearce about this “continued attack” on New Mexicans’ rights:
“The State Police C&D order against the church Sunday was just the latest example of how peoples’ rights are being trampled on. This goes beyond a small business being fined unfairly to save lives and livelihoods. The state’s position is now to ignore the notion that our Constitution continues even in a crisis and to infringe upon the civil rights of our citizens and their rights to freely worship. This action is nothing less than government overstepping its bounds and failing to justly and equitably deal with the pandemic across the state.”
