New Mexico to issue new REAL IDs Nov. 14

ALBUQUERQUE New Mexico will begin issuing federally-compliant driver's licenses, and driver's authorization cards for immigrants in the country illegally, starting Nov. 14, the Taxation and Revenue Department announced Friday.

The agency did not specify what documents will be needed to get the new ID's called REAL ID from New Mexico despite concerns from advocates. But state officials did say to get the driver's authorization card, applicants must prove residency and identity, and must submit fingerprinting and undergo a background check.

Citizens who don't want a REAL ID driver's licenses can obtain a driver's authorization card but don't have to submit fingerprints.

The move comes after Republican Gov. Susana Martinez tried a number of times to repeal a state law that allowed immigrants in the country illegally to get New Mexico driver's licenses.
