Senate Committee Ignores New Mexicans, Amends HB 78 to Allow for Continued Issuance of Driver's Licenses to Illegal Immigrants

Governor Susana Martinez made the following statement after certain members of the Senate Judiciary Committee adopted amendments to House Bill 78, turning the legislation into a bill that would no longer stop the policy of issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.

"The bill in its current form is a sham and insults the intelligence of every New Mexican who wants to see this dangerous law overturned," said Governor Martinez. "New Mexicans deserve an up-or-down vote on a bill that will actually stop the issuance of driver's licenses to illegal immigrants to protect the people of New Mexico, rather than a sham bill designed to protect politicians from being honest with their constituents."
