Las Cruces: 2nd Foreign National Verification Site

Alamogordo Daily News - SANTA FE - Gov. Susana Martinez's administration has authorized Las Cruces as a second site for foreign nationals to verify their New Mexico residency, her spokesman said today. Martinez, saying she was worried about fraud, ordered 10,000 people with New Mexico driver's licenses to travel to Albuquerque for the verification process. Because some of those summoned are illegal immigrants, they say they cannot travel to Albuquerque. The trip from Las Cruces requires a stop at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint. Illegal immigrants say this would subject them to officers whose job is to keep them out of the country. But Scott Darnell, Martinez's press secretary, said the fact that Las Cruces is the state's second-most populous city was behind the decision to establish a second site. "Given the size of Las Cruces, yes, there will be certain time windows during which the certification process will be available there," Darnell said this morning.
