New Mexicans rush to obtain passports

New Mexicans rush to obtain passports
http://www.kob.com/article/stories/S....shtml?cat=504

Quote:
Scores of New Mexicans are in a race against time to get a passport before the federal Real ID Act goes into effect on January 15th, 2013.
Starting that day, New Mexicans will not be allowed to use a driver's license as identification to get through airport security or enter a federal building.
The reason:

Quote:
Essentially, the act states, federal agencies cannot accept state-issued driver's licenses or ID cards if the state does not meet minimum security standards, which include, "evidence that the applicant is a U.S. Citizen."

Since proof of citizenship is not required to get a license in New Mexico, the state does not meet that standard.
Thank you, Bill Richardson! You, and the Democratic run legislature, gave the gift that keeps giving.

And, State Senator Michael Sanchez, the *****hole who blockades any attempts by Gov. Susana Martinez from fixing this problem, lives in my district. The sleazy bastard got re-elected. His law office is near my home. I make sure to show that he is number ONE with me every time I drive by.

New Mexico: we're not the third world, but you can see it from here.

I was often complimented on my command of the English language when travelling back east. (born in NY, school in NM)

Wish I'd obtained a passport back then.


It was pretty easy to get a NMDL just driving up to Lovington with an extra $20 back then.

Cheaper than paying a speeding ticket. Who do you want to be today?

My wife, from Thailand, said Santa Fe was a third world country unto itself except without the open sewer. NM is the worst place I've lived. Let's give it back to Mexico.

The issue here is the Real ID Act - needing a social security card and birth certificate to obtain a state drivers license that meets federal criteria. Absurd! Good for NM for not kowtowing to the Feds. Bad for NM that her citizens are too thick to see the real problem here. I dread the day when I have to renew my license in my state. I'll likely end up expired and cited. I can barely bring myself to renew my "registration" within a few months of expiration. But the important thing here is that the state gets it's tribute and someone in a three letter agency feels like they made a decision.

How do you prevent illegal immigrants from getting DLs?

This as about New Mexico... NM is a border state. Only 40% of the population are white non-Hispanic people. This means it is hard to tell someone who just walked across the border from most New Mexicans.

I don't want to make it easier for illegal aliens to become embedded into society… and voting…. And traveling around the US.

Proving residency and citizenship to obtain a DL doesn't sound like such a bad thing to me. There are circumstances where government isn’t necessarily bad. States issue DLs, so shouldn’t they make sure they are not giving them to illegal aliens?

Now if we want to come up with a much more secure border, maybe this wouldn’t be an issue.

I don’t want unnecessary government, but some government is needed.

When I got my first DL in Ohio about 28 years ago, you had to have a birth certificate. If you had a birth certificate that showed you were born in another country, you had to have proof of citizenship. No birth certificate, no DL. You had to get one. But hell, now you can be president without one.

This also recently impacted my daughter when she was getting her CHL. She was born in Germany, so we also had to show the US consulate and German birth certificates. I threw in a couple sets of orders to show that we were stationed there at the time of her birth.

There will always be a reason to give up liberty to the state in exchange for a feeling of security. This is the history of modern times. And the absence of this pattern recognition is what allows the cycle to perpetuate. We lose liberty because we ask to lose it. It takes great courage to value liberty, broadly, more than one's specific pet issue or insecurity. As Americans, we have long lacked this courage. Pick an issue, and you'll find Americans willing to give up liberty to empower the state to regulate it. The sum total of each of these decisions makes up our broader and collective loss of liberty in this zero-sum game we play (and lose) with the state.

Make it as difficult as possible for illegals to get ID. Besides, every american is given a birth certificate when they're born. What is so hard about bringing it along when you're going to the DMV?

Something's wrong with that story. You don't need to be a US citizen to get a drivers license, whether or not it's a "Real ID". Millions of non-citizen immigrants legally have Real IDs.

What are you you talking about?

None of this would be an issue if NM didn't issue DLs to illegals. Period. THAT is the REAL problem. The security issue is that illegals are able to get DLs. Do you not see that?

Are you for states like New Mexico and Washington issuing DLs to illegals? Are you?

Since the new governor has been in office, she's been trying to repeal the law. The democratic legislature has either killed any attempts. Illegals don't deserve the same rights and privileges as citizens.

I could give two ***** about illegal immigration relative to the dynamic by which this issue is used to empower the federal state.

Illegal immigrants don't confiscate half my earnings. Illegal immigrants don't own my land. Illegal immigrants don't touch my sack every other week at the airport. Illegal immigrants don't read my email and monitor my search history. Illegal immigrants don't restrict my 2A rights. Illegal immigrants don't fly drones over my country. Illegal immigrants don't conduct armed raids on dairy farms (and restrict my ability to sell my raw milk). Illegal immigrants didn't call me twice last year trying to get me to sell milk. -- etc.

I don't have a problem with it. The act says that each state issue driver's licenses or state ID cards only to residents who can prove either U.S. citizenship or legal alien status by showing proper identification. If New Mexico wants to issue non federal compliant drivers licenses to illegal aliens I say let them, so long as I don't have to fly on a plane with someone who never had to prove who he/she was. The gov has been screwing around with this and issuing extensions since 2005 trying to drag the states fighting tooth and nail all the way.

In WV you can get either a non-federal or federal compliant license but the requirements for documentation and cost are the same for either. They started doing this 11 months ago. If WV can put a system in place I don't see how hard it could be for other states. I got mine renewed last week and had no issue whatsoever.

- I already had a copy of my birth certificate but if I hadn't it isn't that tough to get. Or I could have used my passport.

- If you don't have your social security card (I lost mine and needed it for another purpose so I got a replacement mailed to me in about a week by going to a social security office) you can use a W-2 or 1099 in WV

- Proof of residence allowed a bunch of things from utility bills to tax records to voters registration cards, to weapons permits to car registrations- the list goes on.

I bet some of those illegals have managed to vote for those that do.

The illegals use the fraudulent DL to secure government services, cash welfare checks, use EBT cards, secure consumer loans and those wonderful no-doc mortgage loans that threw our markets into the crapper.

It is a BIG, EXPENSIVE problem, that goes beyond mere flight security issues.

Feelings about security!? Don't lecture me about Liberty. You'll comply, like the rest of us.

If you value you liberty like you say you do, you'd see that illegal immigration either directly or indirectly is affecting EVERYBODY. The feds are enacting laws aimed at everybody instead of enforcing specific laws aimed at specific groups.

Ilegals shouldn't be given DL's or are you OK with that?

This is about DL's being issued to illegals. Is your state in compliance? Are you going to be a liberty loving "patriot" and defy the feds and not comply? Or are you going to comply like the rest of us.

That was the entire point. We don't even own the land we stand on in fiat America. We lease it from the state. This tribute being used to fund entitlement programs is a symptom, not the disease. The disease is the largest and most expensive government in history, and it's hundreds of thousands of pages of code - that posters here seem willing to add to in order to resolve any problem they perceive. When the answer is too much government, even more government is not the answer. Read ID is simply more government. That this is not seen, clear as day, is the fundamental reason why we are in this position. If the perception is that entitlement programs incent illegal immigration, the solution is to end entitlement programs, not to throw additional code on the books.

Every illegal immigrant in America could disappear this evening, and you would still wake up tomorrow morning with the largest, most expensive, and -on a macro level- most corrupt government in the history of humanity.
