Driving is a Privilege – Why do Illegal Aliens have Privileges?
Why in the world would any state allow an illegal alien have a drivers license?
Well, I guess I really should not be that surprised that this is happening given the state that the immigration process in the United States is in.
The US needs to reform how it acts towards all illegal aliens.
If they are called “illegals” then that must be against a law.
Why are we giving an “illegal” anything?
That is why we have such a huge problem with illegal aliens in the US.
Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) said, “One reason why we have such large scale of illegal aliens is because we’ve made it so easy.
We say, ‘Don’t come to the U.S. but as long as you’re here, we’ll give you what everybody else has.”
Melissa Savage of the National Conference of State Legislatures, said, “it’s possible that some states could begin offering a two-tiered licensing system so illegal immigrants can still have driving privileges.”
What? No, that is not fixing the problem of the illegal aliens being here.
It is however giving an incentive for them to come here illegally – if they know they can come into the US illegally and still go and get a drivers license – without the worry of being arrested and deported. This is a privilege given to Americans, it is NOT something that is needed for survival.
Instead of blowing Americans tax money on bicycle paths, and making sure the roads into and out of national parks don’t have any bumps in them, and High-speed rail, or making sure these union construction companies are allowed to keep working. Why not send that money to secure the borders? Having the borders secured is a must, and it was needed to be done years ago.
New Mexico Republican Gov. Susana Martinez, who did not support the bill said she wants legislation that would stop the licensing practice and cancel more than 80,000 licenses given by the state to foreign nationals. The state contends it doesn’t know how many of the licenses have gone to illegal immigrants because it does not ask the immigration status of license applicants.
What happened to having to have a social security number in order to get a drivers license? Illegals aliens can’t have legit social security numbers – so not sure why this is even a problem?
