OMG, this never happened. Keep your conspiracy theories to a thread labeled "Random stuff that people make up to try to justify stuff they cannot accept the explanation for." That way, I'll ignore it, naivedave will have a field day thumbing things up and nobody will post Snopes.
New Mexico issues driver's licenses to anyone, to include illegal immigrants. Here is all that is needed to register to vote. There is no proof of citizenship needed.
"If you are registering for the first time in New Mexico*and you submit the registration form by mail, then you must submit with the form a copy of (1) a current and valid photo identification; or (2) a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, student identification card or other government document, including identification issued by an Indian nation, tribe or pueblo that shows your name and current address. If you do not submit one of these forms of identification with your mailed-in, first time registration, then you will be required to present one of the forms of identification when voting in person or absentee."
A review of our voter roles found that illegal immigrants were registered to vote. But the state will not do anything to remove them from the voter roles.
One thing that has just changed is that starting this month, NM is no longer issuing DL to illegals. Instead they will get Diver Authorization cards. Finally. The federal gov was going to require that all US citizens living in New Mexico had to have passports in order to enter federal buildings, go on military bases, and travel by air and/or travel out of NM. So that put the pressure on NM to finally do something about the DL mess.
The gov calls this the Real ID. IN all, 26 states issue valid state ID/DL to illegal immigrants. Once they have a DL, they can register to vote.
