Bishops, advocates protest N.M. drivers license repeal
SANTA FE (AP) Hundreds of immigrant advocates protested New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinezs push to repeal a state law that allows illegal immigrants to get drivers licenses.
The advocates, including religious groups and student activists, marched around the Capitol on Tuesday in what has become a regular scene since Martinez took office last year.
New Mexico is one of three states including Washington and Utah where illegal immigrants can get drivers licenses because no proof of citizenship is required.
