When will we choose to follow the Constitution as written and realize that it does not change in order to cater to the powers of political correctness? Illegal immigration isn’t just a fight for the border states. This is a problem that all states should be actively combating.
Gov. Susana Martinez said Wednesday that she remained committed to “full repeal” of a New Mexico law that allows illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses despite signaling a willingness to compromise with state Democrats a day earlier.
Speaking at a press conference about a new state driver’s license system, Martinez told reporters that she will continue to push for a repeal of the law even though Senate Democrats have blocked the Republican governor’s previous attempts and have warned that another repeal attempt had no chance of passing.
“This is what I hear from people across the state,” Martinez said. “They support a repeal of this law.”
Martinez told the Albuquerque Journal on Tuesday that she would consider legislation that creates a driver’s permit for illegal immigrants that couldn’t be used as identification. Her comments to the newspaper signaled for the first time since taking office that she would consider a compromise bill that would allow illegal immigrants to somehow legally drive in the state. In the past, Martinez said she would not support anything besides repeal.

Of course this ruling makes sense…we want the Illegals to be able to vote!
A federal court today rejected a Texas law that would require voters to present photo IDs to election officials before being allowed to cast ballots in November.
A three-judge panel in Washington unanimously ruled that the law imposes “strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor” and noted that racial minorities in Texas are more likely to live in poverty.
The decision involves an increasingly contentious political issue: a push, largely by Republican-controlled legislatures and governors’ offices, to impose strict identification requirements on voters. Texas’ voter ID rules, approved in 2011, had been widely cheered by conservatives statewide.
