    A Texas high school valedictorian has revealed she is an illegal immigrant in her graduation speech. Larissa Martinez told classmates at McKinney Boyd High School that she was one of the 11million undocumented citizens living in the United States after she fled her abusive and alcoholic father in Mexico. The 18-year-old, who has been offered a full scholarship to Yale, said she decided against giving her classmates the 'traditional Hallmark version' of the speech and instead opted for the truth. The teenager told the crowd of thousands: 'Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are people too'. 'We are here without documentation because...

    Top Donald Trump aide Corey Lewandowski on Sunday defended Trump’s recent criticism of New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, a fellow Republican, and deflected a host of other complaints about Trump's presidential campaign, saying the real issues are jobs and the economy. Lewandowski on Sunday argued the real issues are jobs, the economy and immigration. “We need to stop illegal immigration,” he said. “We need to put people back to work, cut taxes. That’s what this is about.”

    Complete Headline: The Daily 202: Trump’s attacks on the GOP’s most prominent Latina, Susana Martinez, should alarm Republicans During a 65-minute speech in Albuquerque last night, Donald Trump laced into New Mexico Republican Gov. Susana Martinez. He blamed her for the state’s economic problems, for the growing number of food stamp recipients and for not doing more to reject Syrian refugees. The billionaire even mused about moving to the state to run for governor himself. [Snip] [Trump's] language was quite gendered. Trump called Hillary a "low-life" and then went on to imitate the way she talks, raising his voice to...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Outside, protesters were overrunning barricades - and at least one entrance to the event space had its windows smashed. Inside, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump was telling protesters to "go home to mommy." It was quite the return to the campaign trail for the businessman and if there was any lingering hope for Republicans that there is a Trump 2.0 coming, once again, Trump dashed that notion. Instead, it was a return to form for a man who has made significant strides in polls against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Trump held court in Albuquerque, New Mexico for...

    Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail with a force Tuesday, veering away from his recent calls for party unity to attack New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, a rising star Republican and frequent critic of his campaign, as a poor leader who hasn’t done enough to stem economic problems in her state. “You’ve got to get your governor to do a better job. She’s not doing her job,” Trump said at a convention center here, at one point joking that “maybe” he should run for New Mexico governor. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee also argued Martinez has put her state...

    Harvey Yates Jr. defeated incumbent Pat Rogers for a state post on the Republican National Committee on Saturday, elevating an outspoken critic of Gov. Susana Martinez’s governing style to a prestigious – if largely symbolic – GOP position. At the New Mexico Republican convention at the Sandia Resort and Casino, Yates received 278 of the 473 votes cast by Republican delegates – or 58.8 percent – to oust Rogers. A former state Republican Party chairman, Yates has been critical of Martinez and her political adviser, Jay McCleskey, in recent years, while Rogers has been closely linked to both the Martinez...

    New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez will endorse Marco Rubio's presidential campaign Thursday. "Marco Rubio is a compelling leader who can unite the country around conservative principles that will improve the lives of all Americans," the Republican governor said in a statement given to Politico. "The stakes for our great country are too high — and the differences between the candidates too great — for me to remain neutral in this race. I wholeheartedly trust Marco to keep us safe and ensure a better tomorrow." The endorsement from Martinez, the chair of the Republican Governors Association and the nation's only...

    Washington (CNN)A police recording made public this week reveals a police sergeant and a hotel security guard discussing whether New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez was "inebriated" at a holiday party earlier this month. The recording, obtained by CNN affiliate KOAT and other outlets, raises questions about what happened at a raucous holiday party in Santa Fe and how Martinez, once a rising GOP star, handled a police inquiry into a noise complaint at the hotel. Police arrived at the El Dorado hotel late on December 12 after it was claimed that bottles were being thrown from a fourth-floor balcony, KOAT...

He played an active role in the governor’s 2014 re-election campaign and spent time in New Mexico helping with her inaugural events. Despite Martinez’s insistence she is not interested in national office, might the...

    ..Tamara Kay, a professor in the sociology department at the University of New Mexico, criticized right-to-work laws as "kindergarten math."Much of the focus on fights over right-to-work laws has been on Rust Belt states like Michigan, Indiana, and now Wisconsin, as its governor and likely presidential candidate Scott Walker signed a right-to-work bill Monday. But there's also a high stakes showdown underway in New Mexico. Late last month, the state's House of Representatives passed a right-to-work bill, setting up a face-off with the Senate, which could raise the profile of Republican Gov. Susana Martinez, positioning her as a Walker-esque rising...

    The largest U.S. refinery strike in 35 years entered its fourth week as workers at 12 refineries accounting for one-fifth of national production capacity were walking picket lines as of 12 a.m. CST on Sunday, according to union officials. A total of 6,550 members of the United Steelworkers union at 15 plants, including the 12 refineries, are involved in the work stoppage that began on Feb. 1 when talks for a new three-year contract between the USW and lead oil company negotiator Shell Oil Co stopped....

    HOUSTON (Reuters) - Union workers were on strike for a second day on Monday at nine U.S. refineries and chemical plants as they sought a new national contract with oil companies covering laborers at 63 plants. The walkouts were the first in support of a nationwide pact since 1980 and targeted plants with a combined 10 percent of U.S. refining capacity. One of the plants, Tesoro Corp's (TSO.N) 166,000-barrel-per-day Martinez, California, refinery, was being shut because it was in the midst of planned maintenance work. The other refineries appeared set to continue running normally as operators initiated contingency plans, calling...

    Edgar Martinez, a seven-time all-star, should be in the baseball Hall of Fame, but support for his candidacy has been waning over the past three seasons. “I’m not surprised that my percentage went down,” Martinez said a year ago. “We just have to wait and see for the future.” The biggest knock on his enshrinement is that he played as the team’s designated hitter and thus had little to no impact on the defensive part of the game. However, he still deserves to be in. For starters, the American League has required a designated hitter ever since the 1973 season,...

    Gov. Susana Martinez’s 15-point re-election win over Democratic Attorney General King was the largest margin of victory ever for a Republican governor candidate in New Mexico, one political expert said Wednesday. The resounding win for the nation’s first female Hispanic governor, who has been touted in some quarters as part of a national GOP ticket down the road, was driven by a good showing in Bernalillo County and her unusually strong performance in northern New Mexico’s Democratic strongholds. Traditionally, Democrats who win statewide races rely on winning Democratic-heavy counties in north-central New Mexico by margins so wide that Republican gains...
