ALERT! Posted 02/07/2013
As we feared the war against our families is heating up. Yesterday HB446,451,452 were introduced attacking us. Larry is working hard on intelligence gathering as well as analysis of the bills which I will pass on as soon as I have them, but I feel that an alert now is important.
Let’s just clear the air a bit. HB446 will take nearly everyone to lifetime punishment every 90 days with full restrictions on your life, without any hope of relief. This includes those on old 10 and 20 year AND WAIT A MINUTE, EVERYONE EVER CONVICTED IN HISTORY! This means those that escaped prior and said goodbye to RSOLNM should now come on back in.
In summary thus far this session;
1. They want to banish us from the Internet.
2. Take our children away
3. Make sure EVERYONE is punished for the rest of their lives under a strict Probation/Parole like scheme.
Given the facts above and the push by the AG and Governor for this agenda, for those of you not contributing money or time, not going to the Capital to testify and/or believe if you hide under a rock they won’t come for YOUR family. WAKE UP! Donate now and plan to get to the Capital when we ask you to WITH your families. This is no longer a situation you can ignore. This is by FAR the greatest battle for our lives we have EVER faced. Get involved NOW! Excuses? You no longer have any. Worried about your family? GET INVOLVED. Worried about your job? GET INVOLVED! Can’t donate or take a day off from work? Prepare to pay the consequences.
Be prepared for an increasing number of emails as the session progresses. As soon as Larry’s weekly update and new bill analyses are out I will pass them along.
Time for everyone to get involved with money and or time, judgment day is upon us, will we rise to the occasion?
This year is expected to be an extremely busy one on the legislative front. A number of proposals are already pending. And it is anticipated that more will be introduced prior to the deadline for introduction of new legislation. Following is a summary of the bills currently pending that RSOL has identified as “high priority”, especially for anyone required to register. In addition to what we are already working on, we anticipate the introduction of a major SORNA that will bring New Mexico into compliance with the Adam Walsh Act.
The following bills are pending now:
HB 48 sponsored by Representative Nate Gentry (R). The legislation would prohibit any person required to register pursuant to New Mexico’s Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) from accessing social media, instant messaging, or chat rooms. The current status is that the sponsor has temporarily withdrawn the proposal as a result of intense pressure applied by RSOLNM.
HB 38 sponsored by Representative Alonzo Baldonado (R). The legislation would extinguish parental rights for those convicted of any form of Criminal Sexual Penetration (CSP) in cases where a child was conceived, regardless of whether the crime was perpetrated by force. In other words, any person that engaged in consensual sex with an individual below the age of consent would have no parental rights if this becomes law. The bill received a “do pass” in House Consumer and Public Affairs and is now in the House Judiciary Committee.
HB 270 sponsored by Representative Tom Taylor (R). The legislation adds the offense of Electronic Solicitation to the list of offenses that will require the imposition of an indeterminate five to twenty year sentence, and requires that the offender pay for his/her own Risk Assessment. The bill has not been scheduled for its first hearing yet.
SB 252 sponsored by Senator Phil Griego (D). This bill is a major revamp (84 pages) of the children’s code that contains a dangerous provision buried deep inside. There is a list of aggravating circumstances that could be used to remove a child due to abuse or neglect. One of the “aggravating circumstances” that would permit a finding of abuse or neglect would be if a parent is registered or ever had to register as a sex offender. This provision could be used as a reason to take your kids away! This is obviously the most serious civil rights threat to date. The bill has not been scheduled for its first hearing yet.
Conference Update from Lloyd
The 4th Annual Reform Sex Offender Laws Conference in Albuquerque wrapped up Sunday 9/9/12 at noon with a New Mexico Senator as the final keynote speaker. We believe from participant comments that this was the best conference yet! 153 excluding media and children attended the 3 day conference. We hope that everyone attended gained the knowledge to help move their states toward reform of the dangerous laws that oppress millions, and negatively affect our country as a whole. I would like to especially thank; * All the RSOLNM ground team that pulled this amazing event off! * All the volunteers and concerned citizens that joined us for the first time! * RSOL National for being receptive to new and creative conference ideas! * The media for providing the first real coverage these important issues deserve! * APD for providing a safe and secure environment! !!! Now let's all go out and "Catch the Dream of Reform" !!!
