(ANTHONY, New Mexico) â€” Members of the Border Network for Human Rights and other Southern New Mexico residents are preparing for a Day of Action in Santa Fe to support the current driverâ€™s license law and tell lawmakers that they must not compromise communities.
â€œItâ€™s not a short trip to Santa Fe from Anthony and Las Cruces, where most of our members live,â€ said Jose Manuel Escobedo, BNHR Policy Director. â€œThe sacrifices our members make to fight for their licenses shows exactly how much this means to their families.â€
The Day of Action will include a 9 a.m. press conference followed by rounds of visits with lawmakers.
