Who Am I Outside of New Mexico?

Drivers license’s in New Mexico are no longer valid citizenship ID outside of New Mexico….If a New Mexico citizen tries to board an aircraft with our drivers license, it will not be allowed because that person may not be a citizen of the USA. Everybody gets a regular drivers license here…We have to have a passport to travel via airplanes….Well, maybe we need a passport anyway, but that’s beside the point…Why, I say why, can’t we just change a state law that allows illegal immigrants to apply for a regular drivers license in New Mexico. We could issue them a permit to drive, or a type of temporary license to drive, or just deport them, but no, we give them a regular drivers license that a citizen of the United States of America gets…It might be considered profiling or something….Our governor, Susanna Martinez, has tried five times to get the law changed…Oh, she is a republican. No way, Jose….Not here….A bunch of us support her efforts…The federal government support her efforts and now they also say….. No way, Jose, get you a passport to see the USA….We are who we say we are, I reckon, but we just can’t prove it by our drivers license….

It sounds like just a prelude to the need of a passport to cross any state border. Open borders were nice while they lasted. It’s strange that the opening of our national borders caused a closing of all state borders.

You may be right…
