An House bill aimed at bringing New Mexico driver’s licenses into compliance with the federal REAL ID Act is advancing in Santa Fe. It would allow people who are in the U.S. illegally to get driver’s privilege cards instead of a driver's license.

Mon. 8/13 7pm:  Marcela Diaz, from Somos Un Pueblo Unido, will discuss the release of a new report detailing local law enforcement compliance with a 2009 law that bans racial profiling and other forms of bias-based policing.  Three years after the 2009 ban went into effect, the study finds that the large majority of local law enforcement agencies in New Mexico are not in basic compliance.
