Governor Anchor Baby
If some mainstream Republican politicians get their way, Governor Susanna Martinez might soon be on her way to Mexico in handcuffs.
Martinez, who wants to repeal the law that allows undocumented immigrants to get driver's licenses, and has gone after immigrants who have received the driver's licenses, has admitted, in an interview conducted in Spanish, that at least her paternal grandparents were undocumented immigrants from Mexico.
Many Republicans have charged that Mexican families come here intentionally to have children, who are then are automatically granted citizenship, and call these children "anchor babies." They would change the constitution to prevent this, and deport the anchor babies and their parents.
That would make Martinez' father an anchor baby, subject to immediate deportation, along with his whole family, including the governor.
