But pick pocketing and trespassing are issues of private property. People who are government minimalists still believe in property rights of the individual.

I can assure you that Josh does as well. So we can stop being silly and pretending that he supports all non violent forms of crime.

They're going to be driving anyway. This ensures that the state gets some revenue out of the deal and at least they have some ID where we can keep tab on them.


Using that irrational logic we should give thieves a license to steal because they are going to steal anyway and we can get some revenue out of the deal and keep tabs on them.

You should be embarrassed that you are exposing how dense you are.

The movement into my house without my permission is the aggressive act.

The refusal to leave is a passive act.

Try to move into my house without my permission and you'll find out who owns my house.

Likewise, try to move into the US without the permission of the citizens of the US and you will find out who owns the US.

Driving isn't illegal

Stealing is

Terrible analogy

You wish.

Driving without a license is illegal.

It's a great analogy.

Why don't they issue licenses for drug dealers to distribute illegal drugs too? Obviously they have no problem sanctioning illegal activities so why stop here?



I am opposed to illegal immigration, but this comparison is technically way off since laws against immigration are very weak and/or nonexistent. Living in the US illegally isn't even a crime. They would be committing a crime if they are using a fraudulent identity or fake documentation. My understanding is that border evasion and overstaying a visa are very minor crimes that similarly come with very small fines (and repatriation). In the big picture they are less of a crime than speeding. You might as well say that they can't issue a license to anyone that ever got a speeding ticket.

Ridiculous but at least it serves to identify illegals. The expiration date should should be used for deportation if they have not achieved legal status by that date. My opinion is we should streamline legal immigration, deport the illegals on some scheduled basis and put them at the end of the legal immigration line if they choose legal immigration. To do otherwise basically disregards/condones illegal immigration. And most important: get that southern border locked down tight.

The law that says it's illegal to cross the border into the USA without the proper papers.

This guy is also a frickowie.

BS.

Big or small it's still a crime.

Your understanding sucks.

Speeding is a big crime because speeding puts innocent lives at risk.

If you speed and have an accident that kills an innocent person you won't need a driver's license because your arse will be in jail.

I am all for Immigration reform and attempting to do something with everyone here illegally... But how the frick can someone who is here ILLEGALLY get a LEGAL form of identification? 


Don't worry, I doubt many will be issued. Didn't we hear how hard it is to get photo ID last election?

Nope. Border evasion is not the same as living here undocumented because you actually have to catch them at the border. You can't generally charge someone living far away from the border with border evasion. Besides this "crime" has like a $25 fine which is usually waived and repatriation.

So, it's not absurd enough to give an illegal invader a legal license, but we're worried about offending their sensibility in the process?

Cue the Jaguars fan.


There is so much wrong with this that it is missed in conversation so far...that the illegals are now mad that their license will be branded PINK, so all know they are illegal. Isn't there some new politically correct term to call them now so they are not offended?

The republican majority in NC are trying to stop this whole insane idea and they are being branded as the bad guy.

True on ID keeping tabs I suppose but the state made more money when they were driving without a DL. The fines were about a grand before they were deported at our expense. Now they have to pay for the DL like us they will be allowed more jobs.

The real question is the employers hiring illegals in the first place. Why did the law even exist if few followed not hiring an illegal alien?
