Susana Martinez is bad on immigration, supports amnesty and a DREAM Act plan (Mitt Romney, New Mexico) - 05/15/12

New Mexico governor Susana Martinez appeared to be somewhat OK on immigration in the past: she opposed drivers licenses for illegal aliens and the DREAM Act. However, recent statements show she's more on the George W Bush side of things ([1]). Comments follow the excerpt: [Immigration is] a topic she has been reluctant to discuss since winning the Republican primary in 2010, so what comes next is...

Gary Johnson's immigration position disqualifies him for president or anything else (Our America Initiative, New Mexico) - 06/23/10

Former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson started the "Our America Initiative" last year, possibly as a precursor to a presidential run. He's a libertarian and that means two things: a) he might as well save his donors the money because he's never going to get mainstream support, and b) he's wrong. How he's wrong about immigration will be discussed below. First, here are two snippets showing his...

Randal Archibold misleads in support of massive illegal activity (New Mexico vs. Arizona) - 05/13/10

Randal Archibold of the New York Times offers "Side by Side, but Divided Over Immigration" (nytimes.com/2010/05/12/us/12newmexico.html), a bit of a crooked version of A Tale of Two Cities. The first paragraph misleads:

New Mexico gave out over 1000 driver's licenses to illegal aliens, others with bogus documents; Arizona no longer trusts NM licenses - 06/14/09

In 2003, New Mexico governor Bill Richardson signed a law that allowed that state to give drivers licenses to illegal aliens, and when he was running for president he continued to support the bill. And, since that time over one thousand probable illegal aliens have gotten licenses from that state using bogus documents. See the video report here, complete with examples of the documents. New Mexico...

Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) tries tying ICE's hands on immigration raids; Mexico-linked ACLU cheers - 05/20/08

... Simon Romo, Chief Counsel for New Mexico Child Protective Services (link). I left the following comment on the last: We'll always have immigration laws and they'll always be enforced. So, if these two actually cared about children they'd discourage mixed-status families, and the only way to do that is to support our immigration laws and their enforcement. Instead, they're opposing...

Dozens of special interest aliens might have received New Mexico driver's licenses - 05/01/08

... use fraudulent documents to get New Mexico drivers licenses. ...While the FBI isn't saying which countries the 10 came from, the news release said "certain countries are associated with special national security concerns," and that using the term "special interest alien" depends on which a given person is from. According to the news release, investigators are still working on the...

Could Matt Yglesias be any more of a dude? - 04/30/07

... Yglesias recently traveled to Taos, New Mexico. I spent a fair amount of time typing out an unheeded comment suggesting that he travel further south and visit Las Cruces, El Paso, and Carlsbad and also that he take a hike at the White Sands National Monument. It's a good thing he didn't take my advice: he probably would have done it in a tuxedo. In a show of solidarity with, you know, everyone...

AP: "Immigration Crackdown Could Create Ghost Town" - 05/16/06

... the following: Visit Columbus, New Mexico, where some community leaders fear that blocking immigrant smuggling could put the town out of business. While I didn't watch the video I have a pretty good idea of what it will and won't cover. They might give an ironic tip o' the hat to Columbus being the town where Pancho Villa conducted his infamous raid. But, they probably will treat transnational...

Bishops urge: show false, idiotic compassion to illegal aliens - 02/22/06

... Archbishop Michael Sheehan of the New Mexico archdiocese: I read that you want us to show "compassion" to "immigrants". In fact, you say: "We don't condone illegal entry, but when someone is here, we try to take care of them." Let me try to put this in a way that you might understand. (Regular readers are invited to skip this post since you already know this, but the archbishop probably doesn't...
