First Utah, now New Mexico. Where is Eric Holder?

Quote:
Instead of issuing a driver's license, Chavez is proposing what he calls a "guest worker permit."

The guest worker permit would document a person and their spouse and children so everyone is documented, Chavez said, as well as let them register vehicles, get insurance, drive and work within the state.

"The permit is not a pathway to legalization, to immigration. It's something to fix a problem that exists," Chavez said.

Uh, HELLO. They are still subject to deportation in NM.

"If they are caught outside of New Mexico, the are probably subject to deportation."

If these scumbag businesses want to use illegal labor they can feed, clothe, house and transport them. I guess it wouldn't be so palatable then if the tax payers aren't picking up the tab.

Surprisingly Chavez is a Republican - but I doubt his proposals will pass.

As it shouldn't. Anything that is a carrot for future illegal immigrants should be crushed.

Sooooooooo let me get this straight.

Eric Holder and the Obama administration jump on Arizona for attempting to "go around" federal immigration law by actually enforcing it. They sue the state over SB1070, their employer sanction law, and some local community colleges. They give a standing ovation to the president of Mexico who criticized Arizona in our nation's capitol.

Yet....

New Mexico is trying to give documentation to illegals, thus making them "New Mexican citizens", where they are "Citizens of the US in New Mexico", and are giving them a right to drive, WORK, and have insurance. Will Holder and Company even consider this blatantly unconstitutional law a violation of immigration law? Or are states only worth suing if they are trying to actually enforce immigration law?

CA is trying the same carp with same sex marriage law and firearm laws. Can't have it two ways people. It's either the Constitution or the highway.

At least same sex couples ARE american citizens and DO pay taxes. why shouldn't we get our fair share of the benefits of this country? I'm sick of paying taxes to support this crappy government.
