"Most Democrats, especially those in the Senate, say licensing undocumented immigrants makes roadways safer."

This is a joke. It is extremely easy for someone in NM to buy auto insurance, get their licensing, and then drop it. The penalties are minor. How is having a bunch of uneducated people here who can't read road signs in English safer?

"We're 49th in health care. We're 49th in reading scores for third-graders," Griego said. "Sadly, this is about politics."

Do you really think being a magnet for illegal aliens will improve our rankings? Yes, this is about politics. You Democrats are trying to attract as many illegals to NM as possible, in the hope that Obama's amnesty plans will eventually pass, and you'll have a bunch of new Democrat voters. It's all about power, not what's best for this state or the U.S.A.

What part of "Illegal" does the New Mexico Legislature not understand? Aiding illegal immigrants with driver's licenses is helping weaken our already almost nonexistant border. Would Mexico do this for "Illegals" entering their country?

lunatic assertions. The last reform bill considered had a long timeline and would not have any effects on the for 10 years, except that people would have seen which party tries to solve problems instead of exploiting racist and nativist attitudes to make a buck.

Liberal democrat Insanity and Corruption will help destroy lovely New Mexico. One only needs to see what is going on to the once Golden State of California, FYI: Northern California Counties such as Trinity, Shasta, Tehama, and Lassen rural northern communities will no longer allow firefighters to protect homes from fires without a law enforcement escort. The National Forest is so infested with Mexican Drug Cartels that (SAFETY), Is of the up most concerned, and safety. The U.S Forest Service has now declared many cities and counties within northern California to dangerous to even respond to : Fires, and Emergency events without escort protection from police, or CHP escort and protection. The Mexican Drug Cartels have Armed Illegal Mexican Drug Cartel. The Mexican Drug Cartels have been shooting, and fighting with legal locals who live, hike, or hunt in Northern California. The Mexican Drug Cartels have automatic weapons, bombs, and a small army killing, and shooting legal American citizens, and tourist of Northern California. In reality we have a similar Danger, and killings in Southern Arizona, Southern New Mexico, and the Texas/Mexican Border. President Obama, and HLS CZAR Janet Napoliano aRE NOT DOING ENOUGH TO PROTECT AND SECURE AMERICA. WHAT WE HAVE IS A CIVIL WAR; BUT President Obama, AND JANET NAPOLIANO WILL NOT ADMIT OR TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT THEIR BIG FAT LIE! Their is a True, Clear and Present Danger From Mexico, and The Illegal Mexicans. Obama needs to be replaced with VP Biden, or IMPEACHED ! God Bless America; Stop This Liberal Insanity, Secure The US/Mexican Border ! One More Reason to not give out New Mexico Drivers Licenses to : ALL ILLEGALS !

I believe these Santa Fe legislative members are too far away from the problems that are going on with undocumented people driving here in NM without driver's licenses or are these legislative members getting their palms greased?

Thank you for your great post. You may want to send it to the senators that are blinded
and don't understand what the word Illegal means.

Thats what they want to do to our Land of Enchantment.

God bless New Mexico

I'm with Susana. Repeal the law that allows illegal aliens to obtain NM DLs. Send the message that NM is joining the ranks of states that believe in law and order first.

For those misguided souls who claim requiring legal status a for driver's license is "racist" and "nativist," then why don't we open our borders to everyone, and not just Mexicans? Y'all like diversity don't ya? Oh wait a minute, I forgot that Mexico is very strict about enforcing THEIR southern border.

get realit's not liberal democrat insanity it's just called "COMMON SENSE". give illegal immigrants a driver's license and the "GOVERNMENT can keep tabs on them. like the "Government" keeps tabs on you with the cell phones, if you have one. "Insanity" you don't know the meaning of the "WORD." You Republican's "insane Vision of this country and the World itself is just another "FOX NEWS FEAR TACTIC" quit your "CRYING and just take yourself and your Insanity Home where it belongs."your fear mongerring and war mongerring tactics are "OLD" and frankly "ABSURB." Again, "Get over it before you blow a gasket." Scratch that last sentence, "You've already blown a Head Gasket!" Viva Obama, tsar Napolitano but most of all "Viva Common Sense" and the "Sky Is Not Falling al; Your grip with reality is!
