The race for Mayor of Albuquerque is the concentrate on Election Day

[1] Group calls for mosque fire to be investigated as a hate crime A civil rights group calls for an alleged arson in a mosque in Albuquerque to be investigated as a hate crime. Last Monday, surveillance footage recorded a woman who started several fires near the prayer hall of the New Mexico Islamic Center. Now the Council on American Islamic Relations, the country’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on the FBI and Albuquerque police to investigate the case as a hate crime. Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the FBI or the APD.

[2] Special session to deal with COVID aids and redistribution The legislature will meet for a special session on Monday. Her focus will be on approving new legislative district maps and providing federal COVID aids. However, the special session is not without controversy. A few weeks ago the Supreme Court ruled that the legislature should have a say in where the COVID aids are distributed. Last week, KRQE News 13 reported that the state treasurer confirmed that Lujan Grisham paid a $ 269,000 bill in federal funds, apparently in violation of that Supreme Court order. The governor’s office fired back, saying the money was for services rendered that were required prior to the Supreme Court’s suspension, adding that the money would be repaid. KRQE News 13 is waiting for confirmation.
