New Mexico’s governor plans to revoke licenses issued to illegal aliens
Sonoran Times ^ | Jan 12, 2011 | BY LINDA BENTLEY

Posted on 01/16/2011 11:10:47 AM PST by Islander7

SANTA 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.

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.

A wise Latina!

If she runs for President - she has my vote.

Contrast her to weak, feeble, spineless, fawning to Obama and evil McCain.

If they want to drive in the USA they can get an international licence...valid for a year but not renewable.

She should be President. I hope she runs and wins!

The democrats/liberals can’t accuse her of being racist because she is Hispanic.

If illegals don’t get deported soon then there will never be another conservative elected ever.

She was one of the GOP/conservatives in 2008 that I was most excited about. I loved her campaign commericial where some female teacher or lib mole attacked her.

She ran a response ad that was priceless. “Oh yeah - she looked familiar - I convicted her husband and put him in jail for...” I forget the charge but the ad was fantastic and hilarious.

She has the fight like Christie - unfortunately Christie is not conservative like her.

Be sure to round up all the illegals that were given a license and ship them home.

That only works if you have a license in Mexico...which, of course, most don’t have.

1.Cuts spending and taxes.

2.Against illegals.

That’s better than 99.99% of politicians. She should be the President of the U.S.A.

They just revert to the general, most offensive stereotypes.

Clarence Thomas, in their narrative, is a shiftless, sex-crazed menial, clearly the inferior of his white colleagues on the Court.

Sarah Palin, in their narrative, shouldn't concern herself with important national issues, and is only capable of staying at home with her children.

They get away with it because they are leftists.

It won't be a card. The annointed one'll exhume the Josephus Bidenosaurus and ship his carcass over to New Mexico to have a talk with the Governor-lady.

And the Josephus Bidenosaurus will say to the Governor-lady:

"I know ILLEGALS! I've experienced ILLEGALS! There's NOTHING I don't know about ILLEGALS! I've been in the Senate a hell of a long time and lemme tell ya, the SENATE KNOWS all about ILLEGALS!"

I doubt it will not be over-turned by some Liberal Judge.....”Motor-Voter” was SPECIFICALLY designed to get Drivers’ Licenses to the Democrat voterbase, which consists of 100’s of thousands of Illegals.

How the heck did she get elected?

Long story short, New Mexicans are fed up with liberals, liberal policies, and anything that even remotely reeks of the corrupt Bill Richardson. I voted for Martinez, and am damned glad I did. That said, our old governor Gary Johnson catches a lot of flak here on FR, but he's a good man. Fiscally conservative, and mostly libertarian on social issues.

New Mexico is politically schizophrenic. There are liberal enclaves (Santa Fe, Indian Reservations), and then there's Catron County. Richardson got elected because of name recognition and the fact that he's Hispanic. Hopefully New Mexicans finally recognize him for what he is now, especially after he's inflicted all kinds of devastation on the state.

One example: Gary Johnson left office and the state had a surplus of funds. Richardson was elected and managed to pi$$ that away in short order, then along came the Rail Runner and his other pet projects to make things worse.

What Disambiguator says is pretty much accurate. A good thumbnail sketch of state politics. I’d call it “balkanized” though sorta like Cali that is mostly conservative east of the coast ranges.

They will play the Palin card by somehow connecting her to the discredited Sarah Palin and thereby trashing both.

The Palin card has been shown to be a more powerful trump than the Race Card when played by all the propagandists at once

From the ABQ Journal:

Under the law, signed by Gov. Bill Richardson [in 2003], 82,700 active licenses are held by foreign nationals out of nearly 1.7 million active licenses overall. The state doesn't track how many of those drivers are in the country illegally.

Read more: ABQJOURNAL NEWS/XGR: On the Table http://www.abqjournal.com/news/xgr/16231010xgr01-16-11.htm#ixzz1BJQUCzpq

The Democrats hold both houses of the legislature and it will be hard to repeal the current driver's license law. One possibility is a bill that would allow a driving permit (similar to a learners permit) that would not pass as a means of identification, though in reality I imagine such a permit would end up being a defacto identification anyway.

Finally true salt of the earth women are stepping forward to claim their role.
