News Hour with Jim Lehrer - August 18
We don't want to be disrespectful of our relationship with Mexico. In fact my state, New Mexico, is the most immigrant friendly state. We have licenses for undocumented workers. We have scholarships for them to go to our university because we want to integrate them; we don't want them out driving without insurance. But when you have border security that is such a concern in terms of terrorist activities, in terms of drug smuggling, human smuggling, this is why we're asking for, pleas to both federal governments to just get a little more involved and active.
-- Bill Richardson (A little more active?)
