How to Establish Residency
To become a legal resident of New Mexico for tuition purposes, four basic requirements must be completed. Each person must meet the requirements individually.

The Twelve Month Consecutive Presence Requirement
A person must physically reside in the state for twelve consecutive months immediately preceding the term for which the resident classification is requested. NOTE: A student cannot begin to complete the twelve month requirement until his/her eighteenth birthday.

The Financial Independence Requirement
Only persons who are financially independent may establish residency apart from parents or guardians regardless of age. A student cannot be approved for residency who is financially dependent upon his/her parents or legal guardians who are nonresidents of New Mexico. Dependency will be determined according to the 1954 Internal Revenue Service Code, Section 152 and is always based on the previous tax year for residency purposes. If under the age of 23 at the time the student applies for residency, a copy of his/her parents' or guardian's 1040 or 1040A U.S. income tax form for the previous tax year is required. If the student is shown to be a dependent on this tax form, he/she will not be considered financially independent or eligible for residency during the current year.

The Written Declaration of "Intent" Requirement
The student must sign a written declaration of intent to relinquish residency in any other state and to establish it in New Mexico.

The Overt Acts Requirement
New Mexico requires the completion of several "overt" acts which support the student's written declaration of "intent" to become a permanent resident. Examples of such acts are:
Securing a New Mexico driver's license

Securing a New Mexico automobile registration

Registering to vote in New Mexico.

Filing a New Mexico state tax…...

Statehood of New Mexico

...It took New Mexico more than half a century to shed its territorial status and become a state. New Mexico's citizens first attempted to gain statehood in 1850, when local officials drafted a state constitution which was overwhelmingly approved by voters. A legislature and executive officials were elected. That same summer, however, this statehood plan was nullified when Congress passed the Compromise Bill of 1850 which granted New Mexico territorial status. Other attempts to develop and implement a state constitution followed, including proposed constitutions which were defeated at the polls in 1872 and 1889. There was even an effort at joint statehood with Arizona in 1906, but this too was defeated by the voters, mainly those from Arizona. They feared that Santa Fe would control the state’s politics. Many reasons have been suggested why it took New Mexico so long to become a state. Early efforts were hampered, in part, by a general ignorance about the territory and suspicions towards its people. Statehood was opposed by those who felt that New Mexico's predominantly Hispanic and Indian population was too foreign and Catholic for admission to the American Union. There were even periodic debates as to whether a new name for the territory would help the cause of statehood. Names such as Navajo and Lincoln were suggested and seriously considered. There were also questions about the loyalty these recently conquered people had for their new country. This issue was slowly laid to......

...War on Drugs in Mexico In Monterrey, Mexico lives Sister Consuela Martinez, a nun, and one of the few people not afraid to speak up against the violence caused by the drug cartels. Fourteen years ago, she came home to find cats on her front porch, all with slit throats, and a little message saying that she would be next. But surprisingly, she is still well and alive today. Most people who speak against the cartels do not live long. When issues are brought to public eye, cartels tend to lose profit. With publicity comes less freedom to conduct business in their own manner, so the cartels cut out the source (LA times). Beheadings and kidnappings are popular, and over the past 5 years over 48,000 people were killed, and roughly 5,000 people disappeared due to drug related incidents (CNN). The Mexican drug cartels have not always been so powerful. Before the 1980’s there was trade of opium and marijuana within Mexico and the U.S., but Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, a former Federal Judicial Police Agent, expanded to Columbia. With new connections to cocaine, he went to the top of the Medellin Cartel (the only cartel in Mexico at the time) ran by Pablo Escobar. In time, they grew in power and size, and Gallardo decided he would split up the cartel all over Mexico, thus forming the new cartels that reside in Mexico (PBS). Now, Mexico is one of the world’s largest suppliers of marijuana, methamphetamine, and cocaine, and the net earnings is anywhere from 13 billion to 48 billion a......

...Mexico It’s Friday, I've got no job, I've got no class and I’m headed down to Mexico! I am a freshman attending the University of Arizona in Tucson and the second semester is coming to a close in a couple short weeks. I must have done something good because I had recently been granted permission from my parents to bring my pickup truck to campus to use for the remainder of the year. My parents had previously been against me driving anything that wasn't powered by my own “Chevro-legs". I am driving South on the SR-85 in my blue 1995 regular cab Chevrolet with my roommate Chris and good friend Sean sitting beside me on the cloth bench-style seat. We’re loaded with a cooler full of snacks, beer and water, a sleeping bag per person, and around $300 between us. We reach Why Arizona and I pull into a Mobile gas station to fill up on American gas for the weekend; I think we bought Mexican insurance here too, but not worth describing. I remember the gas prices fairly reasonable still in the summer of the 2003; so gas ran me probably thirty five bucks for my eighteen gallon fuel tank. Mexican insurance was twenty dollars a day and we paid for coverage for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Fully loaded and ready to get rolling with this entirely spontaneous vacation that was only happening because the previous night I learned that my seventeen year old brother was going to be in Rocky Point for his first time that weekend. Upon hearing this news, I gathered up Sean and......

N.M., 764 P.2d 1316 (1988) Facts: Ms. Rodman (appellant) was an employee of Presbyterian Hospital as a unit secretary for nearly eight years. On February 17, 1987, Ms. Rodman was terminated under hospital personnel policies following a “third corrective action” notice. In June of 1986 Ms. Rodman was reprimanded for having received an inordinate amount of personal telephone calls and visits from people while she was at work and on company time. Her behavior was disruptive to the patients as well as other employee’s. She was informed by her boss not to take any more personal calls outside of being on break or dinner and she was not to have any visitors at her work station. These breaks were to take place in an area not visible by patients, or other staff, and she was not to leave the confines of the hospital unless she reported leaving to her immediate supervisor. On February 15, 1987, Rodman arrived at work, but prior to arriving, called her boyfriend’s mother and told her not to let her boyfriend have her car keys. While she was at work his mother called and told her that her boyfriend had her car keys, she told the mother to have him call her at work. He called and she told him she could not speak with him at her station, he hung up, called her back and left a number for her to call him. Ms. Rodman went to the break room and called him.

New Mexico

...Victoria Orihuela English 1301 Professor Remollino 30 September 2013 New Mexico I’ve always dreamt of seeing myself living somewhere where the temperatures are thirty degrees or lower. Where there are snowmen surrounding my house and the cars in my driveway are unable to move due to how much snow is covering them. Angel Fire, New Mexico is where I picture myself in the near future. I would love to visit there during Christmas time and I picture the scenery with everyone around you walking with snow boots, about eight layers of clothes on, mittens, ear muffs, and a beanie. I visualize the pure white snow which the children are having snowball fights with for about an hour at a time. Their joy of laughter when hitting each other straight in the face of one another. With also their Great Dane running and barking around in circles trying to eat the snow that was being thrown. The smoke coming from the chimney next door with the aroma from the pumpkin pie, pot roast, and cheesy mashed potatoes being made in the kitchen. Then, the family across the street decorating their 10 feet Christmas tree through the window with ornaments as colorful as the rainbow and lights as bright as the sun. With that being said, you would see Christmas lights on each house and everyone in the neighborhood singing Christmas carols. You wouldn’t even be able to drive your lifted 2013 Chevrolet due to how much snow would be on the roads. The only way you could see people getting around are the......

Thunderstorms in Eastern Colorado and Northeastern New Mexico

...Examine Figure 14.13. Given your understanding of the conditions required for the formation of a thunderstorm, why would there be so many thunderstorms in eastern Colorado and northeastern New Mexico? What is so special about this relatively small area? A thunderstorm forms when moist, unstable air is lifted vertically into the atmosphere. Lifting of this air results in condensation and the release of latent heat. Immediately after lifting begins, the rising parcel of warm moist air begins to cool. At a certain elevation the dew point is reached resulting in condensation and the formation of a cumulus cloud. The conditions required for thunderstorms are relatively warm humid air and unstable air. The upward air movement needed to create thunderstorms can come from the unequal heating of Earth’s surface. Cumulonimbus clouds (that form thunderstorms) can form quickly when surface heating is intense. Mountain slopes that face the sun absorb more heat and become relatively warmer creating strong updrafts that form into thunderstorm producing clouds. This relatively small area is so special when it comes to thunderstorms because of its unique geographic location. Eastern Colorado and northeastern New Mexico sits between the desert and the Rocky Mountains. When the warm air and the cooler air from these two unlikely climates come together they form thunderstorms. Severe thunderstorms can generate lightning, thunder, heavy rain, winds, and hail and can come from a single......

...judgment stated that the court does not consider the mere acts of signing resolutions as actual management. He further stated that effective management entails the possession of some minimal information on the resolution being discussed accompanied with some form of input on whether the resolution should be passed or not. 2 Alvin C Warren Jr, ‘Alternatives for International Corporate Tax Reform’ (1994) 49 New York University Tax Law Review599. 3 Mr. R and another v Holden (Inspector of Taxes) SpC 422 On the issue of control and managements, the ruling stated that where the locations of the physical acts of signing the documents is different from the location of the actual decision was taken, the latter place is what will be considered as the location of central management and control for the purposes of company residency and subsequent taxation regimes. The distinction between management and control has also been discussed in the case involving FCT v Commonwealth Aluminum Co Ltd. In this case, it was concluded that control is the best test in determining the residency of a multinational corporation. The court even went a step further to clarify the word ‘controlled’ when it is passively used in its most ordinary meaning 4.

...The United Mexican States, commonly known as Mexico is a federation of 31 free and sovereign states forming a union which have jurisdiction over its territories, federal district and Capital City. The Capital is Mexico City and the country operates under a President with governmental structure that is democratic, republican and representative. Each Mexican state has its own constitution, congress, and judiciaries with 6 year term elections for governors and 3 year terms for state congress. Each state is divided into the smallest political entity in the country, a municipality, which is governed by a municipal president or mayor who is elected by their residents. The country itself has no official religion as the constitution of 1917 guarantees separation of church and state. The dominant religion, however, is Catholicism covering 82.7% of the population as of 2010, with the next largest being Protestant and Mormon accounting for 9.7% of the populous. Covering the southern end of the United States, Mexico is bordered by the Caribbean Sea, North Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. The population as of 2012 was 120.8 million, a little less than two and half times that of the population of United States in 2012 of 313.9 million. Covering an area of over 761,600 sq. miles (1.973 million km²) about a 5th of the size of the USA at 3.794 million sq. miles and about 3 times the size of State of Texas. This makes Mexico the 5th largest country in America and......

New Mexico Statute

...New Mexico Statute Melissa L. Shuey Kaplan University 1. This statute was enacted by the legislature of the State of New Mexico. 2. The language contained in the New Mexico statute is primarily mandatory. The beginning of the statue uses “shall be” and “shall not be,” both of which are mandatory phrases. Additionally, subsection (1) continues with mandatory language when it states, “No individual shall receive benefits…” and “…that a person shall not be denied….” However, some discretionary language exists with the phrases, “without good cause” and “suitable work,” which leaves room for subjectivity on the part of the Division of Unemployment Services. 3. According to the statute, a person can be denied unemployment benefits if “it is determined by the division that” the person voluntarily quits, is fired for misconduct connected to the job, or is not attempting to get a job, either by not applying or turning down a viable job offer. Based on the fact that these three items are separated by semicolons and the word “or” between numbers two and three, a person must only meet one of the three descriptions in order to be disqualified from receiving benefits. 4. Exceptions apply only to the first part, (1), which relates to a person voluntarily quitting a job. These exceptions clarify that benefits shall not be denied “solely on the basis of pregnancy or the termination of pregnancy;” if the person left the job due to evidenced domestic abuse; or if relocation......

...1. Mexico has always portrayed itself as one of the most pro-trade countries in the world. For instance, we have a free trade agreement with the United States and Canada, and another one with the European Union. We are active members of the WTO, the OECD, the APEC, the Pacific Alliance, and have also signed multiple bilateral agreements with many nations, most of them deemed “strategic”. Answer the next two questions in your own words: a. What are the potential costs and benefits of adopting such a free-trade strategy? We can have more products that our country because of it cannot have the enough material or it have a high cost of do it. b. What can it be done to reduce the costs and maximize the benefits? Take help from another countries who have low prices. 2. Drawing upon the new trade theory and Porter's theory of national competitive advantage, outline the Mexican case for one of these national industries: (1) oil and petrochemicals, (2) agriculture and foods, (3) mining, (4) manufacturing, (5) automotive, (6) entertainment and sports. Choose only one out of the six, and answer: a. What kind of trade and economic policies would you recommend that the federal government adopt in order to build national competitive advantage in that specific industry? I´d choose a free trade because it has few rules when Mexico have a treatment. b. Do your policies support the basic free trade philosophy? Why, or why not? Yes, because it´s easier to manage it. 3.

Hartley’s New Mexico Landscape

...New Mexico Landscape by: Marsden Hartle Hartley’s New Mexico Landscape is an intriguing and beautiful composition that lays hold on the speculation as if this is the image of one’s night vision while sleep. Marsden Hartley painted New Mexico Landscape in Berlin between 1923 and a powerful piece of work, and is one of twenty-five works referred to as The New Mexico Recollections, in which the artist simplified his configurations to capture a dreamlike impression of the place because the way the objects are shaped. With cactuses, a home, hills, clouds, and bushes, seem to be gathered to look like a cool spring evening because of the color shadowing. This canvas sets a relaxing mood good probably for a den in a single family home or doctor’s office. Hartley’s use of colors in this composition seems to set the mood and gives clues to the time of day and year. They appear as a conclave of universal elements trusting in one another, (very unique work), because you have things that look like sun rays and suns themselves at sundown time all radiant together in the same piece of art!. It’s a kind of cosmic dictation applied aesthetically to produce a harmony of shapes and colors with a sense also of the color of sound as I get these feelings out of music. In this painting the shapes in the painting are clearly delineated in a way that became a signature with applied oils thinly so that each shape would not blare out but work in harmony with the others. The artwork seems to have......

New Mexico History of governing New Mexico included very descriptive facts on the states peoples, economy, education, religion, and history, with past and present view of them all. Although the chapter provides important information on the states values and ethics, the most intriguing of them all is the history. New Mexico’s first inhabitants were the Clovis culture of Paleo-Indians. Native Americans who dwelled in New Mexico still occupy the same villages and pueblos they did many years ago. In the years 1540-1542 Francisco Vazquez de Coronado formed an expedition up the Rio Grande Valley which led to him exploring the east and west areas of New Mexico. About fifty years later in 1598, Spain made an agreement with Don Juan de Onate to begin an expedition to colonize the northeastern part of New Mexico. Onate founded the San Juan de los Caballeros colony, which was the first permanent European settlement in New Mexico on the Rio Grande. After this was done he moved up the Rio Grande Valley In 1608, the settlement of Santa Fe was established, near the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The city was left alone by the Spanish which led to the result of the Pueblo Revolt, which was planned in Taos Pueblo, and led by the San Juan Indian, Pope. After the death of Pope, Don Diego de Vargas reestablished the area back to Spanish rule. As a result of New Spain winning its independence, in 1821, New Mexico became a part of part of the Mexican nation. In 1841 Texas invaded New Mexico and claimed the......

...Mexico, land rich in history and culture, is located on the northern border of the United States. Throughout the last decade and a half Mexico has struggled to maintain a stable economy, all the while trying to control the trafficking of drugs and humans across the American border. The U.S. Department of State website (2010) states Mexico is classified by the World Bank as an upper-middle-income country. Poverty is widespread (around 44% of the population lives below the poverty line) and high rates of economic growth are needed to create legitimate economic opportunities for new entrants to the work force. The Mexican economy in 2009 experienced its deepest recession since the 1930s. The stated reason above is what has caused many Mexican citizens to cross the border into the United States looking taking any job they can find in order to help their families back home survive the trying times. Many have died in the trek to seek a better life, yet just as many have survived and are living and working in a large number of U.S. States. According to a PBS video called “Beyond the Border” (2001) one out of ten families in Mexico depend on the money sent to them by those family members that have managed to cross the U.S. border and get jobs. Although during his political campaign President Obama promised address the immigrations issues of the United States, this issue has been put on hold for a number of years. The New York Times (2011) report that the member of illegal......
