(Albequerue, NM - January 31, 2011) New Mexico governor Susana Martinez (R) said Monday that New Mexico is no longer an illegal immigrant sanctuary state, issuing an order to officially reverse the state's status. Ms. Martinez ordered the reversal of the state's "sanctuary status" - put in place by former Gov. Bill Richardson (D), which prohibited law enforcement from asking criminal suspects about their citizenship. The move aligns the state with Arizona, which passed a law mandating officials inquire about an individual's immigration status.

about time. :D
