Immigrant rights groups protest special session

Immigrant rights groups protest special session

Immigrant rights groups are protesting the opening of a special legislative session that will consider a proposed repeal of a law that lets illegal immigrants get New Mexico driver's licenses.
Border Network for Human Rights, based in El Paso, Texas, brought a few dozen protesters to the capital Tuesday, where they planned to lobby lawmakers to reject the proposal from Gov. Susana Martinez.
The groups chanted "Jesus was an immigrant" under the governor's office.
The special session is on redistricting, but Martinez added the issue and others to the agenda.
Another rally is planned Thursday in Santa Fe by another immigrant rights group, Somos Un Pueblo Unido.
