OyP: This guv is a policy wrecking ball

Jerry Ortiz y Pino opines that Gov. Susana Martinez is on a neocon crusade of destruction. But the public can’t see it yet, he writes, because the media fawns over her so.

Most voters’ impressions of a governor are shaped by media coverage. On TV, we get split-second footage: She's cutting ribbons, smiling at children, waving to crowds, and looking perky at a rally or solemn at a memorial. ... The honeymoon ain't over yet, even after 18 months.

The Guv’s Crusade of Destruction

Gov. Susana Martinez is not being held accountable for much of what has happened on her watch. Until reporters begin to dig into the consequences of her policy initiatives, the public will continue to hold her in high regard.

Driver’s license checks no mas. For now.

Gov. Susana Martinez

Everyone is talking about driver's licenses. First Gov. Susana Martinez required 10,000 foreign nationals to show proof of residency. Then, Mexican-Americans rallied to fight back: protests, letters, and lawsuits abound.

Yesterday, a District Court judge in Santa Fe, Sarah Singleton, issued a temporary halt to the guv’s push. The order came in response to a lawsuit brought against the Taxation and Revenue Department. Freedman Boyd, working with the Mexican-American Legal Defense Fund, filed the suit. He says Martinez’ license verification effort violates the separation of powers between New Mexico's executive and legislative branches.

“We think it's a great step towards ending this unconstitutional action once and for all,” says David Urias, an lawyer who also worked on the lawsuit. “We believe the courts will step in and stop it.”

This would be good news for El Centro and Somos un Pueblo Unido, organizations that advocate for immigrant rights. Both groups have vocally opposed the program, saying Martinez is targeting immigrants for political gain.

Somos un Pueblo Unido issued a news release yesterday about the judge's decision, explaining their stance on the residency certification. The organization “believes the program is inefficient, costly, confusing, and is being used to intimidate immigrant families in New Mexico … .”

Today El Centro will hold a rally called “Don't Target our Families” outside of the Taxation and Revenue Department at the northeast corner of Central and San Mateo at 5 p.m.
