An Albuquerque day care surrounded by more than a dozen registered sex offenders has neighbors scratching their heads. Even law enforcement isn’t clear on whether it’s legal.

Child protection bills roll through New Mexico Legislature

SANTA FE, N.M. —Federal data shows New Mexico had one of the steepest increases in child victims between 2009 and 2013, putting the state in the top five nationally. The number of registered sex offenders reported by the state in 2014 was nearly 6,700, with a per capita figure of 325 that places New Mexico among the top 12 in the US, according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

The latest bill to pass the House this week was one by Rep. Sharon Clahchischilliage, R-Kirtland, that aims to crack down on sexual predators attempting to secretly view or record a person’s intimate parts. She said the measure is designed to protect families.
