ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) — Governor Susana Martinez is responding to ex-governor Gary Johnsonâ€™s recent remarks about Martinez allegedly being too tough on illegal immigrants.
The Martinez administration sent out a statement saying:
"Itâ€™s unfortunate that Gary Johnson believes the only way he can get attention is to talk about Susana Martinez...Governor Martinez has been clear that she opposes giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants....But supports legal immigration and guest worker programs."
The governor also said that she thought New Mexico had a better relationship with Mexico after one year of her being in office, than the state ever had under Gary Johnson.
Johnson is running for president as a libertarian.
