N.M. governor says grandparents came to USA illegally

Quote:
Faced with 1930 Census records, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez acknowledged that her grandparents illegally came to the USA from Mexico.

Martinez, a Republican who took office in January, has been outspoken in a bid to repeal what she has called "the dangerous practice" of granting driver's licenses to undocumented migrants to "protect the people of New Mexico." It's not immediately clear whether her grandparents ever had driver's licenses.

She put the issue on the agenda for a special session that opened Tuesday. Two other states -- Utah and Washington -- do not require proof of citizenship to get a license.

Martinez's admission came Wednesday in an interview in Spanish with KLUZ-TV, the Albuquerque Univision affiliate, the Associated Press says.

"I know they arrived without documents, especially my father's father," she said.

AP says the admission "appeared to be the first time she has answered the question definitively." Spokesman Scott Darnell said today that the governor had just recently learned of her grandparents' immigration status through media reports that cited Census records showing her grandfather entered the country illegally.

"The governor has no reason to question that 1930 Census record about her grandfather and has always known, and publicly spoken of the fact for years, that her family roots trace back to Mexico," Darnell said. "It's unfortunate that some are choosing to personally attack the governor, but these tactics prove that supporters of giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants have run out of legitimate defenses for a bad policy."
During the election they were calling her Susana the Tejana, or Susana the Texan. Basically saying that she was bought by several Texas interests as the vast majority of her campaign money came from Texas. Looks like they got it wrong. She's Susana the Mexicana!

As a Republican, and the baby of an anchor baby, shouldn't she resign and move her family back to Mexico and come back and do it the right way?!

More attack stupidity...

According to the laws of our nation, she is here legally. Just because she doesn't agree with how those laws applied to her grandparents does not mean that she should go back to Mexico. Her family is in America "the right way" according to our laws. Friggin' stupid comment.

I wonder what her views are on education for the children of illegal immigrants?

Rising above your circumstances does not mean embracing what put you in them. Benefitting from a bad law does not mean that you're disqaulified from fighting against that law (which is EXACTLY what you're trying to do).

This is the kind of low crap that passes for intelligent debate these days and it's getting pretty friggin' old.

To address all...

Of course Susana is here legally as she has birthright citizenship. The problem is that the Republican party, Susana's party, has talked about eliminating birthright citizenship calling it a problem with "anchor babies". Don't we think it's a bit funny that the grandchild of illegal immigrants is preaching the "send em all back" message?
