Governor issues statement

The office of Gov. Susana Martinez issued the following statement Thursday evening following the New Mexico House of Representatives’s approval of a “blast-out” motion to allow floor debate for a bill that would ban driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants.

“Today, Republicans, Democrats, and the House’s only Independent ensured that New Mexicans will get the up-or-down vote on a bill they have repeatedly demanded be passed,” said Governor Martinez. “I applaud House members, especially the two Democrats, who courageously stood up to Speaker Ben Lujan and stood with New Mexicans who want this dangerous law repealed.”
