New Mexico House Votes To Ban Licenses For Illegals

New Mexico's House of Representatives passed 42-28, with all 33 Republicans, 8 Democrats and 1 Independent voting for the bill to ban undocumented immigrants from getting driver's licenses.

The Bill was supported by Republican Gov. Susana Martinez who responded, "Despite numerous procedural schemes to defend the status quo, a broad coalition of Republicans, Democrats, and the House's lone Independent came together to stand with an overwhelming majority of New Mexicans who want to see the dangerous practice of issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants overturned."

New Mexico is one of only three states, with Utah and Washington state, allowing undocumented immigrants to receive driver's licenses. Martinez identified that approximately 83,000 foreign nationals hold drivers licenses in the state.

The bill now moves to the Senate, where Democrats hold a 27 to 15 majority over Republicans.
