There’s some task which the God of all the universe, the great Creator, your redeemer in Jesus Christ has for you to do, and which will remain undone and incomplete until by faith and obedience you step into the will of God.

New Mexico is a very, very poor state. The reports I get from various organizations like the one below, basically give the state a D- or F. I love the people here. New Mexico is such beautiful state, New Mexico is where FGGAM was founded! When I travel to Reserve to preach on Sundays I love the drive and the scenery, I love the people, but so much sadness with all the poverty I see.   New Mexico is Spiritually dry as much of America is, THE GOVERNOR HAS CHURCHES LOCKED DOWN TO 40%!!! SHE IS RULING OVER GOD! IN THE WORST TIMES I HAVE SEEN IN AMERICA THE NM GOVERNOR RULES OVER THE CHURCH!!!!!!!  I weep at abortion in New Mexico, the killing of God’s babies, violent crime, poor education, suicides, drug addictions, alcoholism, child abuse, child poverty, corruption in local and state government. Crime is so bad here in Albuquerque Federal Agents have come to help us! Right now New Mexico is being bankrupted by the Governor with her lockdown, we are dying economically. JESUS is the only answer for New Mexico and America, not political answers. New Mexico does not have to suffer the way it is! There is a much better way….JESUS CHRIST! America is politicizing everything nowadays, EVERYTHING HAS GOT TO BE BIBLICAL NOT POLITICAL!!! I have lived here in New Mexico since 1995, year after year of failure, the Dems and Republicans have had plenty of time to fix the state, but both parties have failed big time. I am too simple of a Preacher I guess, as I preach JESUS, JESUS, JESUS, JESUS IS THE ONLY ANSWER!!! BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW NOT A POLITICAL WORLDVIEW! JESUS IS NOT HAPPY WITH US!!! WE KILL HIS BABIES!!!!!!!

Counties with the highest and lowest poverty rates in New Mexico

Poverty is one of America’s most vexing and poignant issues—what causes it, why does it persist, how can we end it, what defines it, and just how many people are poor? To take a look at state-level poverty, Stacker analyzed the U.S. Census Bureau’s five-year population estimates from the 2014-2018 American Community Survey (ACS) to show the breakdown of poverty across America.

New Mexico statistics:

  • Overall state poverty rate: 20% (410,389 people)
  • Child poverty rate: 28.1% (136,792 people)
  • Race/ethnicity poverty rates:
    • Asian American: 9.7% (2,985 people)
    • Black Americans: 23.4% (9,417 people)
    • Hispanic/Latin Americans: 23.9% (238,245 people)
    • Native Americans/Alaskans: 33% (64,702 people)
    • White Americans: 12.2% (94,636 people)
  • Counties with the highest poverty rate:
    • #1. McKinley County: 36.0% (25,986 people; 79.9% above state)
    • #2. Luna County: 30.2% (7,206 people; 50.8% above state)
    • #3. Socorro County: 29.1% (4,796 people; 45.6% above state)
  • Counties with the lowest poverty rate:
    • #1. Los Alamos County: 5.3% (959 people; 73.7% below state)
      #2. Santa Fe County: 12.8% (18,675 people; 36.2% below state)
      #3. Union County: 14.1% (496 people; 29.5% below state

The U.S. FPL is a metric first used in the 1960s that is based on the cost of a minimal food budget multiplied by three on the assumption that food comprises a third of a household’s expenses. The FPL is used as a threshold for determining an individual or families’ eligibility for assistance programs from SNAP benefits to Medicaid. Various social services have different caps for eligibility from 100% of the FPL or higher.

In 2019, the FPL threshold for one person under the age of 65 was an annual income of $13,300; the FPL for a family of five with three kids was an annual income of $30,510.

Some say 200% of the federal poverty level is a more realistic figure for covering the cost of basic needs in the United States. None of the measures captures what is known as episodic poverty, which affects workers with temporary jobs or those in the informal or gig economies.

Poverty rates in America also reveal a disturbing racial gap, with Black Americans 2.5 times more likely to be poor than white Americans, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Research generally points to causes like poor education systems, workplace discrimination, and high incarceration rates. The coronavirus has reached into that gap, with correlations between poverty and COVID-19 hitting low-income Black communities disproportionately hard. Experts say there is more likelihood of underlying medical conditions that make Black people vulnerable, such as diabetes and heart disease. Those communities tend to have less access to good health care and have higher populations of essential workers who cannot stay home and are forced to stay on the job and risk getting infected.
