The blast worked.

A bill carried by Rep. Andy Nuñez (I-Hatch) that would rescind the state’s policy allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses successfully bypassed the committee process — a rarely used parliamentary procedure called “blasting a bill” — Friday (March 4) when the House floor voted 42-28 to move the measure onto the Senate.

Eight Democrats defected to the side of the Republicans and Nuñez, completing two arduous days of deliberation that saw the 75-year-old Nuñez stay on his feet, verbally punching and counterpunching opponents, some of whom bitterly complained about the bill skipping committees and the passage of a measure they say singles out Mexican-Americans.

According to the Dims, they’re simply “undocumented”.

When, when are they going back to North Korea ?

Nunez could have offered reciprocity with Mexico on citizenship and drivers licenses ;) Their laws seem all to be one way in Mexico’s favor.

The bill singles out Mexican Americans? Illegals aren’t American citizens and illegals aren’t all Mexican you racist boob.

singles out Mexican-Americans

Actually, although it doesn't single them out, the bill certainly does target Mexican-Mexicans. Mexican-Americans aren't illegal and can of course easily obtain a driver's license or any other "document".

It’s not singling out Mexican Americans. It’s singling out illegals of all nationalities. And there are no Mexican Americans. You are either American or you are not.

No...it singles out illegal immigrants. No matter what flavor they are.

Hatch, New Mexico, is the chili capital of the United States. It has also got to be home to hundreds of illegals. Nunez has got to be one tough cookie.

From what I’ve read, SO FAR it looks like it will pass in the Senate and of course, the governor will sign it since she’s been a big supporter of this.
I’m saying so far since we know what could happen once the whining and crying starts from the illegal’s supporters.

Rep. Andy Nuñez (I-Hatch)>>>>>>

Probably belongs to an old line Spanish family that has been in New Mexico for 200 years. They do not identify with illegal aliens at all.

Same rhetoric, different day. I would assume, of course, this means any illegal immigrants, and not just Mexicans.

Where did the -Americans come from anyway?
