From the campaign trails to state legislatures, wherever you cast your gaze in this benighted nation, you’ll likely find a bit of illegal-immigrant bashing at work.
During their campaigns last year, two New Mexico politicos, each in her own way, played the undocumented-worker card so effectively as to help them become the highest ranking women holding public office in New Mexico today.
Since then, the political payoffs Gov. Susana Martinez and Secretary of State Diana Duran sought from their tough-on-illegal-immigrants postures have proved modest at best.
Twice in the past 10 months at two sessions of the legislature, Martinez failed in her efforts to repeal a law allowing illegals to apply for driver’s licenses.
And when she tried unilaterally to crack down on the practice, the governor found herself stymied in court.
Secretary of State Duran, in turn, had egg on her face last week after failing to vindicate her campaign charges that state voter rolls were awash with illegals.
Yet after eight months of investigation, Duran had to acknowledge that only two foreign nationals were found on the rolls.
One of those individuals had never voted. The other, Duran conceded, was unaware that he had done anything wrong.
