One New Mexican’s letter to the editor posed a good question recently: Why is Sen. Marco Rubio, a Cuban-American, the go-to guy on immigration reform?
Cubans, largely welcomed into this country, have had a far different immigration experience than Mexicans. And Florida isn’t exactly on the frontlines of immigration issues.
We also have to ask why there are no New Mexicans in the “gang of eight” United States Senators immigration legislation.
We easily have as much at stake as Arizona. Because the gang has yet to reach an acceptable compromise, the door is open for somebody with credibility to have an impact.
That somebody is Gov. Susana Martinez, a Mexican-American who grew up in a border city, a lawyer, and the governor of a border state.
There is no single answer to immigration issues, she said last week during an interview on Fox News.
“There are several solutions, but we absolutely have to secure the border first,” to stem the flow of illegal immigrants. And she reminded listeners that people from all over the world come across the U.S.-Mexico border.
