I see that point, but how many people can actually afford insurance. Also how many people think that it is necessary to have. Just because you have a license and are suppose to have insurance, doesn't mean that people get it.
ppl clear are ignorant on the deportation process. you think you just pick them up and drive them across the border??? NO. You arrest them, process them, wait for legal challenges assuming they have US BORN KIDS, cost money to fight in court, cost even more to send them back to where they came from. They dont all come from Mexico. Basically, we buy them a plane ticket to send them back. I think THAWV you should accompany some of them to make sure they dont come back. Send them all back home and make fear mongerers, bigots, homophobes, racist pay the cost. Seems like they are the ones that have problems with human beings.
Not knocking on you on this issue, but you become a resident before you become a citizen. People eligible for the dream act(if it passes) will become a resident first. Then they can apply for citizenship, which can take a few years.
If you detain and deport illegal immigrants at the DMV, no illegal immigrants will go there.
So our 2 options are:
1. Have illegal immigrants who follow/know the rules of the road to get their license.
2. Have illegal immigrants who don't get licenses and don't follow the rules of the road.
Pretty easy choice for me.
Here is the text of the legislation:
Before everyone freaks out that "the illegals are getting licenses, I suggest a complete reading, because that doesn't appear to be the case at all. But hyperbole sells so if you want to stick with what you've got keep going...
