AG Balderas’ Statement On Arrest Of Armed Individual Detaining Migrants At The Border

Albuquerque, NM – Please see the below statement from New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas, following the FBI arrest of Larry Mitchell Hopkins, a member of the armed group of individuals reportedly detaining migrants near Sunland Park, New Mexico, for being a felon in possession of a weapon:

“This is a dangerous felon who should not have weapons around children and families. Today’s arrest by the FBI indicates clearly that the rule of law should be in the hands of trained law enforcement officials, not armed vigilantes.”
