Immigrant rights group protests NM session
Groups protest start of NM special session, present petitions on driver's license issue
By The Associated Press

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) ' Immigrant rights groups chanted "Jesus was an immigrant" under the New Mexico governor's office Tuesday as lawmakers returned to Santa Fe for a special session that may include a proposed repeal of a law that lets illegal immigrants get New Mexico driver's licenses.

The El Paso-based Border Network for Human Rights brought a few dozen protesters to the capital, where they planned to lobby lawmakers to reject Gov. Susana Martinez's proposal.

Martinez has added the issue, along with a number of others, to the call for a special session on redistricting.

Another rally is planned in Santa Fe on Thursday by the immigrant rights group Somos Un Pueblo Unido.
