The future of driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants

By

Illegal immigrants can only get driver’s licenses in three states: New Mexico, Utah and Washington. As other states crack down on illegal immigration, the three states are reportedly receiving higher numbers of illegal immigrant applicants for driver’s licenses — either because more undocumented people are moving to the states or because they are visiting to get a license they can take back to where they live.

But the future of that practice is looking hazy: In all three states, officials and lawmakers have pushed for tighter restrictions on licenses to keep them out of the hands of undocumented immigrants, particularly those who reside in other states.

In Washington, a new policy went into effect today requiring driver’s license applicants to give either a verified Social Security number or proof they live in the state. The new policy is part of a larger effort “to clamp down on license fraud,” Washington Licensing Director Liz Luce told the Associated Press last week. The agency will copy and verify documents proving residency before it issues permanent driver’s licenses to people who do not give a valid Social Security number.

New Mexico has yet to change its policies on illegal immigrants and licenses, but that could change under Governor-elect Susana Martinez (R). Martinez reiterated her support for repealing the current driver’s license laws during an interview with Univision on Sunday. “Around 80 percent of people in New Mexico don’t want the people who are here illegally to have a driver’s license,” Martinez said. “They want to ensure that those who get licenses are from the United States.”

Utah, finally, could see changes to how it gives out driver’s privilege cards based on proposed laws to eliminate illegal immigration to the state. State Rep. Stephen Sandstrom (R) wants to pass legislation allowing immigration enforcement officials to access driver’s privilege databases, which would deter many undocumented people from seeking licenses in the first place.

Why does this matter? According to pro-enforcement groups, allowing undocumented immigrants to receive driver’s licenses is a type of amnesty and could draw illegal immigrants to the United States. But advocates of the driver’s license laws say it’s a matter of public safety because licensed drivers are tested for knowledge of driving laws and required to carry insurance. Cracking down on driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants, then, would lead to more adults who cannot drive — a tough situation in regions without good public transportation — or more unlicensed drivers.

Require legal status for anyone receiving public assistance of any kind, other than genuine emergency such as auto accidents. Deport all illegals as they are identified as such, no appeals based on relatives, etc. I don't advocate rounding illegals up, but using common sense where you see them. Question: What would you do if you found a family living in your home? A no brainer, you would evict and arrest them if possible.

The real reason they want to give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants is so that they can vote for liberals who will give them more freebies and allow their relatives to settle in the US.

The real difficulty that has created this problem is our welfare state. Disallow illegals to obtain any government/state benefits and they will begin to leave. I am from Texas and all I see is illegals on the Lone Star card, public housing, medical assistance. My husband went into the hospital and I had to take a chunk out of savings to pay his bill. When I called the hospital and asked why the emergency room is filled with illegals and do they pay their hospital bills, I was told that I needed to contact my representative they were the ones who allowed it. Well, I voted them out. I hope all americans vote against the pro-amnesty group. I am not vindictive or a racist. There are immigration laws for a reason and it is time we had our congress uphold them.

Let me get this. We need to change the law because the illegals will break the law (drive w/o a license and insurance). Do you see a common theme here – constantly breaking every law – in the name of “I'm just trying to improve MY life”.

Deport them. America in super decline as the our population growth is from Latino Lawbreakers who can't get a degree or learn English.

Amazing that you can travel the WORLD and most people know English. But not the Latinos in America. Crazy?

We tried that in California. We voted 60 to 40 to deny public assistance to illegals. The ethnocentric lobbying groups i.e. La Raza, LULAC, Maldef, etc., sued to get it overturned. A liberal judge overturned the will of the people, so illegals get lots of freebies in California.

Last year the liberals passed a law giving illegals the right to get college loans and grants in CA. Arnold vetoed it, but now we have a Democratic governor and he will sign it. So they will get “free” college educations as well as “free” everything else. While the state of California is completely bankrupt and native-born elderly people or people with AIDS are getting their benefits cut.

If you try to stop them from getting welfare state freebies, La Raza etc. will sue to overturn the legislation. That is what happened in California; now we are bankrupt. The same thing happens in California BTW — elderly people who paid into the welfare state all their lives are denied benefits when they get sick, but Pedro from Oaxaca who crawled through a tunnel five days ago gets gold-plated healthcare at no cost.

Utter nonsense. If the threat of deportation won't make illegal aliens learn and follow the rules of the road, I don't know what would. You don't need to have a driver's license to learn how to drive or what the laws are. And just why are illegal aliens of all people suddenly so worried about following the law? Could it have anything to do with a driver's license being our de facto national ID? THAT we most definitely should not be giving to illegal aliens.

This is exactly what soured NM on giving illegal residents a driver's license. It was argued they would be tested, and buy insurance. Unfortunately, illegal residents, with a NM driver's license, still don't purchase insurance. Consequently, NM may halt DLs for illegal residents.

If laws such as Arizona's SB1070 were implemented in other states, it really wouldn't matter much if illegal aliens got driver's licenses in “immigrant-friendly” states. The Arizona law does NOT recognize licenses from such states as proof of legal status, so those who presented them as such would still have their status checked. And under the Real ID Act, which is the driving force behind standardization of the licensing process, licenses from states which do NOT check immigration status could not be exchanged for licenses in states that do.

Im an illegal alien to, I would never steal from anybody or hurt some one im here just to work and do the shit other people from this country dont want to do. I also pay taxes like every one else they just dont know anything of whats going on around them or how it all work. I dont have any welfare ,medic care or any goverment assistance. I have good arms and legs to make my money i dont need help from no body, im just not going to sit and wait until some one comes around to lend me a hand I will look and find a better place u would do the same and maybe ive help u once because thats me a helping and careing man.

coward : Will not confront an issue, that needs to be confronted due to fear.

or- a person who picks on people they believe is not a match
for them in either strength, or intellect- but won’t go head-to-head with their match.

definitely online followers (lol- biggest cowards I’ve ever seen)
print that.

example: there are ppl on here that express their hate openly- it’s always something everyday- non provoked. Yet, these certain people would like others to believe they are the ambassadors of fairness.(i have 2 in mind) Once I finally got sick of it- I spoke up. Many others- still try to excuse bad behavior. cowards. You lose my respect when I see you as a follower. I see people like that as the type of person I could convince to rob a bank and kill their mothers.

Because if it was you to would be of hispanic ancestory…And you could be shipped back…plus I dont think no other race works harder and does more for this country then the hispanic people do…Maybe you need to learn to be more like them and then maybe you wont hate them for trying to take care of their families and doing whats right..

Hello??? Please Give me a brake. US has been trying to get rid of illegal immigration since the beginning of time and that is a war that US will never win. Keep it real please this country will not move without immigrants. What if you and your family get into a bad accident with an uninsured vehicle driven by an unlicensed illegal immigrant? And they run away. Wouldn’t it be better to know who the owner Of the vehicle and trace down the identity of the guy that hit you. Right now if this happens to you tomorrow. Are you going to accept it was just back luck? I do not think so!!!
That is just one example of why they need To have driver lic. There aré Many more reasons. If You stop thinking with your racist or simply hatefull mind and start thinking about The Safety of The people You Love MOST, You will understand and start seeing The benefits.

The Epi Leather, shiny palladium hardware, rolled leather handles with ring attachments, and Louis Vuitton Canvas engraved padlock on the side of the bag make this handbag truly standout. Instantly, I fell in love with the balenciaga bags Speedy in black! It was gorgeous, sophisticated and I thought it would lovely in my collection. I absolutely loved the Speedy Cube, but due to the ultra high price I turned to the Epi collection for a more affordable take on a black louis vuitton belts handbag. At the moment, I have four different louis vuitton clutches in my collection going on a 5th in two weeks and I thought it was quite senseless to even think to getting lousi vuitton Speedy 30. So I change to search for a black Jimmy Choo clutches I came across the Louis Vuitton Leather Lockit and it was love at first sight! I have been eager to own a Louis Vuitton store Outlet in black for some time now. If the Catier bags doesnt interest you in black, it also is available in Cassis, Ivoire, and Red. My personal favorite is the black, and I just may add the Louis Vuitton discounts Epi Leather Lockit to my current wish collection. By the way, if you think the price is high, you can visit our online store to choose some Louis Vuitton multicolor for you. I change to search for MiuMiu tote I came across the Louis Vuitton Speedy handbag. Epi Leather Lockit and it was love at first sight! The Louis Vuitton Epi MiuMiu online have always been a favorite to me, and when I saw that the lockit came in Epi Leather also I was took. For some odd reason,cheap lv handbags sale, I have never taken notice of this particular lockit handbag before and I must say it is stunning.The features of this handbag are absolutely beautiful.

You are right about immigrants. I am an immigrant too. I came here with my family when I was very little. We worked very hard and created a good life here. BUT, we came here WITH PERMISSION. LEGALLY. We had to receive an invitation to come. We were investigated. We had to pass tests. There are many people from our country who could not come. That is fair. NOT EVERYONE WHO LIVES IN ANOTHER COUNTRY HAS THE RIGHT TO COME HERE. Please stop believing that just because people want to come to the U.S., they should be allowed in with no papers. Does Mexico let everyone come in to work with no papers? No country does that. For people from Mexico who come with papers, the U.S. is a welcoming place. No one owes you or me anything. We should follow the laws of this land. You cannot move into another person’s house and then wonder why they don’t treat you like it is your home.
I wish you well, and mean no offense, but please understand how LEGAL IMMIGRANTS feel too. God bless you.

My ancestors emigrated from Germany in 1849 to avoid conscription into the Franco-Prussian War (draft-dodgers even back then!) However, they were required to enter the country through Ellis Island. Immigrants chose to come to America throughout the 1800s. There were no immigration quotas or application requirements. The US had plenty of space and economic opportunity for all back then. But no immigrants were free to arrive in Boston Harbor and disembark with no registration requirements. Today the US has to limit immigration due to the vast number of foreigners who want to come here. It is a fair system that requires some people to wait years before their name comes to the top of the list. Many immigrants who come here illegally rationalize their right to stay based on the argument that several states in the South West should have remained as part of Mexico. Fact is, those States are part of the US. And until the US forfeits those States or is required to give them to Mexico through a legal process, there is no argument that justifies your continued presence in the US. I believe Asian immigrants come with an incredible work ethic and their children are expected to excel in school. Bulls Eye claims in his comment above that he works and pays taxes. Federal law makes it a crime for a company to employ illegal aliens. Companies have been fined and executives of the companies have been convicted under that law. Your employer is required to check your status before hiring you. He is criminally liable for employing you. Yet States like my State of WA provides drivers’ licences without proof of legal status. In addition, being a Sanctuary State, illegal aliens have access to housing, medical coupons, food stamps, legal representation and translation services. If private companies are subject to prosecution for employing illegal aliens, why is the public sector free to spend tax revenues to support them?

give illegals “driving only” licenses, that way we know who is here and who isn’t, we will have all their information, fingerprint and dna them at time of application, make them pay a yearly $300 illegal alien privlage fee and an initial $300 application fee, 20million illegals times $300 is quite a number, right now you have millions of illegals obtaining licenses anyway out of state and they are paying 2000-3000 dollars cash for them which i’m sure isn’t getting the US any tax revenue, and on top of application fee revenue all the immigrants would start buying insurance and cars further motivating the econmy, we have to look at this as a business transaction, they are here, they are making money which they are not paying tax on and they are sending it all back, lets keep some of it here, as a privlage of having a license you have to show proof of support. this can be a good thing, as much as i personally hate walking into a store and the clerk doesn’t speak a word of english and every phone call is greeted with an option for spanish the fact is that they are here, they are staying, kicking all of them out would bankrupt the entire country and unless they build a mine field on the border they would be back within a week

I really think that this problem will never end. We have illegal immigrant from many countries not just from Mexico. My idea would be to have the government charged a continues fee for the all the privileges such as the driver license, medical care, work permit, rentals, ect. only for all illegal immigrants that way tax payers are not complaining and illegal immigrant are not just receiving. Sooner or later the illegal immigrants either pay for the privileges or they would be deported. Sounds fair to me. This would be only for the immigrants that are here. We can find a way to reduce illegal immigration but let face it if they are willing to give there life to get here they will find a way. The only thing we can do is make the best out of it. This is only my opinion. By the way from what i heard most illegal criminal are being deported.

What taxes are they just running away with? They still pay sales taxes and all other taxes when purchasing any necessities just like you and me. There are many immigrants, legal or not, that file and pay their taxes on income earned. So before you pass judgement on anyone else, look at your facts and look into using a dictionary.

Do you know how many of those people would rather be in the military? NO because they don’t have a chance. i wish all immigrants would stop working for awhole month just to see how much MONEY y’all would loose. i would be sitting back laughing at y’all.

Whats wrong with a country that keeps increasing taxes on the little guy -and on the other hand ,
hands out a trunk load of that money to support illegal immigrants in food stamps,schooling for
their kids–who have amnesty — because they are born here in the U.S.A. , AND –more than likely
born and paid for by U.S. citizens through welfare programs and hospital programs that will not
deny care. Yet we — the working poor– get our asses kicked when we cant pay our taxes!?!
The IRS and every other ass munch we owe money to will come after us till we pay what we owe
or we friggen collapse and have to figure out how to pay a friggen lawyer to reduce what we owe
–which is a bitch cause ———–oh –fuck me—— who really cares. Our own government is
worse than the friggen criminals who are in our communities and here illegally — the Government fucks us in the open
– the illegals fuck us silently.
