New Mexicans getting passports after state is denied REAL ID deadline extension

It means a portion of New Mexicans will be making trips to apply for their passports.
“Why are we paying for them and why do they need to be issued if they not going to be valid for anything other than driving in New Mexico,” said Roswell resident, Ron Utley.
