“For five long years, we’ve fought hard to do what the people of New Mexico have overwhelmingly demanded,” Martinez said in a news release.
It only applies to undocumented immigrants who currently don’t have a New Mexico driver’s license. It’s a long overdue, common-sense way to make New Mexico safer, and I’m proud to sign it into law today,” she said.

Martinez until this year insisted that legislators repeal a 2003 law that allowed people without proof of immigration status to receive a New Mexico driver’s license if they had proof of identity and of residency in the state.
