  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

New Mexico’s governor plans to revoke licenses issued to illegal aliens  ‘… we cannot just have a path to citizenship created when there are people in line already doing the proper things’
     

  new mexico governor susana martinezSANTA FE, N.M. – New Mexico’s newly elected Gov. Susana Martinez has come out swinging with a budget proposal that would cut spending and close the budget deficit without raising taxes or making cuts to classroom spending or health care for New Mexico’s most vulnerable.

Martinez also stated one of her first priorities is to revoke driver licenses issued to illegal aliens, pointing out since Arizona passed SB 1070, illegal aliens have been pouring in to New Mexico, which does not require proof of citizenship to obtain licenses.

Former Gov. Bill Richardson, an open borders advocate, further exacerbated the problem by banning Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) clerks from asking applicants if they were legally present.

New Mexico and a smattering of a few other states, which allow illegal aliens to obtain driver licenses, have become Meccas for human smugglers and those in the fraudulent ID business.

Following the passage of Arizona’s SB 1070, New Mexico’s DMV issued 10,257 licenses to foreign born (both legal and illegal) applicants during the first six months of 2010, a 60 percent increase, compared to 13,481 issued during all of 2009 to foreign born applicants. The number of licenses issued to citizens during that same period of time remained flat.

Martinez, who also opposes amnesty, stated, “[T]here has to be another way of dealing with the issue … we cannot just have a path to citizenship created when there are people in line already doing the proper things,” and said she is focused on removing provisions that allow illegal aliens to obtain driver licenses and revoking those already issued.

On Jan. 1, during her inaugural address, Martinez vowed to “shine a light into the dark corners of state government in order to regain the public trust and to ensure that public officials are putting the people’s business first.”http://www.sonorannews.com/archives/2011/110112/frontpage-NMgovernor.html

People, pay attention here. This isn't just right-wing racist hysteria.

I am on a very different page from much of the Republican Party about immigration -- I happen to think our party will be destroyed by demographics within the next generation if we don't work very aggressively to recruit Hispanics and capitalize on culturally conservative values of most Hispanics before the Democrats create a welfare culture that creates a semi-permanent Hispanic underclass.

However, I've seen up close and personal what happens to a community where the Mexican attitude toward law enforcement -- namely, that most cops are corrupt and those few young cops who aren't corrupt will be soon -- takes hold. Tolerating illegal immigration is part and parcel of a massive disrespect for the law which may be typical in much of Latin America but cannot be allowed to become typical anywhere in the United States.

I was a police and crime reporter in New Mexico. I know the problems faced by law enforcement in that state. I personally dealt with gang members, gangland assassinations in the streets of middle-class residential neighborhoods (one right outside the home of a retired Assembly of God pastor who found a gang member dead at the wheel of his vehicle which crashed into his yard after being chased though the streets of a rather nice part of town), murders of elderly farmers in their isolated homes by people hunting for stuff they could sell for drugs, and a tremendous amount of drunk driving leading to fatal crashes -- too many of them killing the innocent victim while the drunk had minor to moderate injuries. It got to the point that whenever I saw a particularly bad drunk driving crash, I was no longer surprised when the sentence included deportation to Mexico of someone who was illegally in the United States.

New Mexico is the only one of our four border states where Hispanics have pretty much always been in effective control of state and local government, and that means pro-Hispanic policies are a legitimate part of state history that attract no more attention than an Irish parade in Boston or a "Pulaski Days" celebration of Polish pride in Chicago. That, in itself, is not bad and I can respect and appreciate it.

Unfortunately, it's created other problems. Just as the Irish communities of Boston were once full of efforts to raise money for the IRA, the Hispanic culture of New Mexico has created a division within Hispanics themselves over toleration for illegal immigration. Notice that Gov. Susana Martinez is herself a Hispanic woman, a Republican, and a former prosecutor who was twice named New Mexico's "prosecutor of the year."

Having a driver's license or a state non-driver ID card is essential to do many types of business in the United States. Illegal immigrants know that, which is why they want a driver's license even if they have no intention of driving. In a pre-9/11 environment, numerous states with significant Hispanic populations were asked to allow people to obtain driver's licenses without social security cards, and although state laws have now been tightened, New Mexico is still one of the states where people routinely get driver's licenses who are illegal immigrants.

Hopefully the new governor of New Mexico -- the nation's first Latina governor -- will have the credibility among Hispanics to push through legislation which does nothing to harm legal immigrants or Hispanics who have been here for generations, but severely penalizes people who have broken the law.

When I went to renew my driver's license a few years ago.  I had to produce my birth certificate and any documentation I had that changed my name to it's current form. 

I guess if they lived in MO they would never get a license to begin with. 
When I was young, I wanted to be older.  This is not what I expected!

You're exactly right, Igahmah. Missouri's policy makes it more difficult -- not impossible but more difficult -- for illegal aliens to live and work in Missouri.

The argument being used in states like New Mexico is that while illegal aliens are in this country illegally, it's better to have them go through driver's training and get a license than to have them driving with no license or identification at all. After all, the logic says, immigration is a federal government issue and the states are forced to deal with the consequences of the federal government's "catch and release" policies and other failures to police the border, so since illegal aliens are going to be here anyway and little or nothing is being done to stop them, states might as well license the illegal aliens since the consequences of people driving without licenses are worse.

That argument had some logic in a pre-9/11 environment. I didn't like it before 9/11 and it is downright dangerous today.

DTM
