Martinez Admits Her Grandparents Were Illegal Immigrants

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez (R), who has taken a very hard line on illegal immigrantion, acknowledged to KLUZ-TV that her paternal grandparents entered the United States illegally.

The AP notes reports about Martinez's grandfather "coming across the border illegally have surfaced numerous times over the past few years. The governor's office has largely dodged directly answering questions about the issue, saying Martinez was unsure of his status since he abandoned the family when her father was young. Her comments Wednesday appeared to be the first time she has answered the question definitively."
