Remember when the United States used to be a country of laws? What part of “Illegal” is everyone missing here?
California has approved a vote that would allow illegals the right to get a drivers license. UNREAL. Advocates say that the measure would make California roads safer, improve national security and allow immigrants to fully contribute to the state economy. So when are we going to give business licenses to people in the country illegally?
Just curious, why are there any laws in Liberal Utopia? We make it illegal for kids to sell lemonade, but when it comes to illegals in the US, everything is legal.
In the waning hours of the 2013 legislative session, the Assembly on Thursday sent Gov. Jerry Brown a bill allowing undocumented immigrants to receive driver’s licenses.
The surprise 55-19 vote moved California a signature away from putting into law a measure that immigrant advocates have sought fruitlessly for years, with past attempts thwarted by legislative vote and gubernatorial veto.
“This is a moment, members,” sponsor Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-Watsonville, said in closing remarks on the Assembly floor, “that years from now you’re going to look back on.”
By extending licenses to undocumented immigrants, Alejo said, California would open a legal umbrella for everyone on the road to prevent situations in which immigrants face arrest, heavy fines and car impoundment when they are pulled over.
