Making excuses for illegal immigrants is the ongoing ploy by the Democrats. These people violated our laws just by sneaking into the country, and the liberal Demos encourage that to continue by giving them driver's licenses so they can go vote even though they are not citizens.

That is BS, and needs to be stopped. If the Senate fails to pass this legislation, we need to get the names of all that voted against it, and come 2012, kick their butts out!

This is where the legislation will die.

And the Senators from Dona Ana will lead the charge in killing it.

Why are we wasting legislative time talking about this? Driver's licenses for illegals should never have been considered in the first place, much less signed into law. Get the hell rid of it already. We don't NEED all this damn discussion about it. "Contentious issue?" I'm not sure the origins of this shouldn't be looked into by border officials as a CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION. How's that for contention?

Why do angry old white people always need someone to blame their failures in life on? Shame on the GOP and thank God Billy Bob is on the wrong side of both history and demographics! He just doesn't know it yet! In 20 years Billy will be just another minority...talk about writing GOP's political obituary.

Do this thing already. Illegal aliens should have NEVER been pseudo-legitimized, illegitamately. That was absolutely ludicrious and somewhat seditious.

Well the dems are still dancing around and have not faced reality. Haven't they seen the polls? 70% of our legal citizens want to revoke licenses for ILLEGALS!
The dems call them undocumented. Thats crap! They are illegal and should not be given licenses. Our dem state senators need to go to Mexico illegally and see if they can get a drivers license and all the other benefits.

they should be hung for trying to use accurate language.

Don't they know that this is does not help the scapegoating campaign?

Next they will be acknowledging that they are human beings - can't have that.

Yawn.... you and they should be hung for trying to change the language to illegitimately legitimize illegal aliens. We know they are human beings, and we also know they are in the USA illegally. Nice try. How about a little compassion for the citzens of the USA who are also human beings?

the accurate term has been "undocumented" for 30 years. The other language is creeping back in because it plays better to the scapegoaters and nativists.

OK, Fruitcake. We'll go with you language. A New Mexico drivers license is a document. If illegal aliens obtain one, that means they are documented. Are they still illegally in the U.S.? Absolutely!

Nope. Wrong again. It has always been illegal alien. YOU all have been TRYING for 30 years to use "undocumented" term. Notice how it doesn't work since it is invalid? These people ARE documented. In their own country. When they enter our country illegally they are "illegal". Since they are not native to the USA, they are alien. I am a native of NM, for multiple decades, and have never heard (until recently) the term "undocumented" to describe illegal aliens. Calling and illegal alien "undocumented immigrant" is like calling a drug dealer an "undocumented pharmacist".

Oh BTW, I am an undocumented Border Patrol Agent.
