NM Dem Calls State Immigration Move Akin To The Holocaust

A New Mexico Democrat in the state legislature compared a measure that prevents illegal immigrants from obtaining a drivers’ licenses “to the rounding-up of Jews by Nazi Germany.”

The AP has more:

Rep. Patricia Roybal Caballero, D-Albuquerque, said any repeal would create more divisions in New Mexico and force hard-working immigrants in the state into second-class citizenship. “It reminds me of stories we heard about the Holocaust,” she said, drawing gasp in the crowded room.

To no one’s surprise, everyone is distancing themselves from Caballero’s absurd, inaccurate, and highly-insensitive remarks.
