itís clear that Latinos in this country are facing even tougher times
New Mexico has a new, female, Latino Gov!
Hispanic republican woman who favors enforcing the law!
Susana has earned a reputation as a tough prosecutor who fights relentlessly for victims and justice. In addition to managing the second largest DAís office in the state, Susana personally tries some of the toughest cases, including child abuse and child homicide.
In fact, Katieís Law is named after Katie Sepich, a 22-year old college student whose killer Susana Martinez prosecuted and convicted. The law now requires law enforcement to take DNA for most violent felony arrests and include the samples in a database to help bring criminals to justice.
Susana also has a record of battling public corruption. On her watch, for example, the DoŮa Ana County Clerk was convicted of five felony charges of violating the election code and a Municipal Court Judge was convicted of voter fraud.
It is true that the federal government plays the dominant role when it comes to immigration law. Unfortunately, the Richardson/Denish administration has gone out of its way to enact state laws that make New Mexico attractive to illegal immigration and run counter to efforts to secure our borders. Susana Martinez will take steps to make the state less attractive to illegal immigration, which will help enhance our border security.
The first place Martinez will start is by seeking to repeal the law that allows illegal immigrants to obtain driverís licenses. This law encourages illegal immigrants to come to New Mexico and makes it more difficult for law enforcement officials to determine if someone is here illegally. Repealing this law is a common-sense step towards securing our border.
Similarly, Martinez opposes providing illegal immigrants with free tuition through taxpayer-funded lottery scholarships. Not only does this provide further incentive for illegal immigrants to come to New Mexico, it is simply wrong to provide free scholarships to illegal immigrants when members of the military stationed in New Mexico are not eligible for the same benefits.
I am so dumb.
