The New Mexico House of Representatives Appropriations & Finance Committee will be considering HB606 regarding two-tiered licenses. New Mexico Dreamers in Action (NM DIA) wants to thank the Representatives on the committee for standing with immigrants and keeping all drivers in New Mexico licensed with all drivers having the same license. Two-tiers of licenses would make our immigrant communities more susceptible to racial profiling by having a different license for New Mexicans without a social security number.
Immigrants in New Mexico pay local, state and federal taxes. Immigrants in New Mexico create jobs for other New Mexicans. Immigrant communities also lower crime rates in the communities they live.
With licenses immigrant students can drive to school and parents can drive to work or take their children to daycare and school. NM DIA doesn't want the state of New Mexico to further criminalize immigrants by making it unsafe for everyone and have unlicensed and uninsured drivers in New Mexico. Without a license, like all other drivers in the state, immigrants without any criminal background become targets for detention and deportation. We want all New Mexicans to drive safely with a license and also have a license that isn't different from other drivers.
Help NM DIA thank the New Mexico House of Representatives Appropriations & Finance Committee and keep licenses for all New Mexicans.
