Solidarity at the Plaza

Las Cruces comes together to support El Paso

Posted

Las Cruces Mayor Ken Miyagishima and the Las Cruces City Council asked residents to join them at Plaza de Las Cruces Monday evening, Aug. 5, for an “Expression of Solidarity with the People of El Paso” following a shooting rampage in the border city that claimed at least 22 lives.


“I was in touch with El Paso Mayor Dee Margo immediately after the shooting on Saturday (Aug. 3),” Miyaghisma said in a news release, “offering our full support as a city, and as neighbors
with deep ties to our friends in El Paso.


“We know that it’s long past time to address the problem of domestic terrorism in our country. It will take all our creativity, commitment and trust in one another to rein in the forces of violence that have been unleashed against our people. For now, at this time of deep pain, the councilors and I are inviting our fellow residents to join us in solidarity with our good friends to
the south, and to stand in full support of our beautiful, diverse and welcoming border community.”
