New Mexico Gov Elect Doesn’t know what the DREAM Act is

Susana Martinez, the new Mexico Governor-elect needs to be reminded what the DREAM Act is.  When a reporter asked the Republican politician if she supported the DREAM Act , her response was “Remind me. I know that the scholarship….”

Once reminded that “The DREAM Act is the law that people have been trying to pass for 10 years that would allow children of illegal immigrants to stay in the country as long as they go to college or perform military service. Martinez replied,”Oh yes, yes, yes. OK, I do know that.”

Susana Martinez campaigned strongly on the need to “secure the border” and fight the “people who have come here to New Mexico illegally with the sole purpose of committing crimes.”

All we can say is “Thank God Governors Don’t Vote on Federal Law”.
