El Paso should have already stopped Socorro from annexing any land. The law in the state should be that if a city fails to annex one year they cannot go back to try not only to annex one part of land but an equal part of land. The state needs to repeal that portion of the law.

Yea, but it's still wrong of Suckoro to try to swallow up or annex neighboring counties (San Eli/Horizon City) to expand their "tax-base" just because those counties are unincorporated. They're toooo money-hungry!

You must be on Socoro's city council because that is the most messed up city council around-besides Vinton and Sunland Park.

Well, since everybody is doing it, I'm gonna annex my neighbors house and collect taxes from it just like Socorro's doing. They're setting a bad example.
