 A rally in support of New Mexico's driver's license law was held today in front of the Roundhouse. Click here to watch the video.

The rally, sponsored by pro-immigrant group Somos Un Pueblo Unido, featured several state lawmakers and a Catholic priest from Roswell. It came in sharp contrast to a tea party rally Tuesday that denounced the law, which allows undocumented immigrants to purchase state driver's licenses.

Gov. Susana Martinez, a Republican, has vowed to make efforts to repeal the law during the special session.
