ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich is calling for the resignation of Bernalillo County Sheriff Manny Gonzales.

ďSheriff Gonzales wasnít representing Bernalillo County when he opposed body cameras. He wasnít representing Bernalillo County when he opposed efforts for common sense gun violence reforms. And he isnít with us now," Heinrich said.

The senator claims Sheriff Gonzales is inviting the Trump administration to send federal forces to help patrol the city.

ďInstead of collaborating with the Albuquerque Police Department, the Sheriff is inviting the Presidentís stormtroopers into Albuquerque," Heinrich said. "If we can learn anything from Portland, itís that we donít need this kind of 'help' from the White House. The President is currently using federal law enforcement agents like a domestic paramilitary force. Thatís precisely how fascism begins and none of us should ever encourage or accept it."

Sheriff Gonzales is scheduled to meet with Pres. Trump and Attorney General William Barr Wednesday to discuss combating crime as part of Operation Relentless Pursuit.
