Well not to that extent flips. But maybe afterwards....knowing who they are and where they may be, would be the best way to handle it. You have to start somewhere. Telling them that we know that you are here illegally, so we are going to give you a license instead of at least making an effort to deport them just seems so wrong to me.
Until a person thinks of the implications, it does seem wrong. That's why it's sometimes worthwhile to look at the practical results. That link I provided to what happened in Georgia is a good example.
