Calif. Legislature OKs Driver's Licenses for Illegal Aliens

This bill will allow people to get to work legally, even though they're here illegally. California, ladies and gentlemen:

quote:

The state Assembly approved the bill on a 55-19 vote late Thursday, hours after the Senate also voted to pass it. Gov. Jerry Brown issued a statement indicating he would sign it into law, allowing some 2 million people in California to drive legally.

"This bill will enable millions of people to get to work safely and legally," Brown said in the statement. "Hopefully, it will send a message to Washington that immigration reform is long past due."

The legislation also would make drivers eligible for insurance and training, including written and driving tests required by the Department of Motor Vehicles.



quote:

The cards will carry notification that it is only an ID for driving, and that it does not establish eligibility for employment, voting or seeking public benefits. "In essence, it puts a big flag on the card that this is not for a person that is in this country legally," said Assemblywoman Diane Harkey. "So I kind of question the purpose of the bill.''

But Latino lawmakers in the Senate revived the bill in the session's waning hours. They said that legally licensing people to drive was more important than concerns over what the licenses would look like.

Will they now be paying taxes if they're working legally?

This is the only way I would entertain something like this.

California will soon be overwhelmingly Hispanic and this law is strongly supported by the (illegal) immigration lobby. The illegals can't vote, but their kids (mostly) can and those are the votes that the lawmakers are going for. They also want an open border, so I expect California to be pushing for that within the next decade.

Whatever happened to the fear of terrorists getting drivers licences and boarding airplanes? Was that overblown?

Why is this good? They will still be employed for undercut wages. Will not pay taxes after getting paid in taxes.

Apparently California doesn't understand the meaning of ILLEGAL

We're halfway there.

Nobody should be. That's the problem; not more laborers entering the workforce.

Well the land(Cali,Texas,Arizona,N.M., Utah, etc... & much of the southwest)was basically stolen from Hispanics by the U.S. Government during the Mexican-American War. A war Ulysses Grant called "......one of the most unjust by a stronger against a weaker nation."(Off topic .How many nations have Iran invaded in the past 200 years?)

Mexico struggled for Independence from Spain only to be invaded by the U.S with their aggressive ideology of Manifest Destiny.

Rev. Wright called this a case of "America's chickens coming home to Roost!"

I trust that Holder's DOJ will seek the voiding of this law with the same fervor it did Arizona's. I mean, immigration policy is the sole purview of the feds, is that not the argument. Will this not complicate those efforts?

Hopefully, the LA legislature will pass a law refusing to recognize CA drivers licences because of this.

How will this work with the Fed requirement for SS checks by employees?

So they can drive legally to a job they have that they are not legally entitled to have.

Okey dokey.

47% in this country pay no federal income taxes and/or get the EITC and CTC. Most illegals work in low paying jobs and their birth rate out-paces both blacks and whites. I'd hazard a guess that the vast majority will fall into the 47% category.

To be fair, it will make it easier to hold them accountable for their actions while driving both criminally and in the civil arena.
