A few days ago Amy Taxin at AP Los Angeles wrote an article about illegal immigrants obtaining driver’s licenses, and the troubles they may encounter. The article was entitled “Immigrants get Warning on Drivers Licenses.”
She begins by writing “While tens of thousands of immigrants living in the United States illegally are preparing to apply for long-sought driver’s license in California starting January 2, others are being urged to think twice.”
Maybe it’s just me, but shouldn’t everyone have a problem with that sentence? I know we’ve heard over and over, but I just can’t get over the fact that we’re going to reward criminals with driver’s licenses.
She continues: “Immigrant advocates say the vast majority should be able to get licenses without trouble, but they want anyone who previously obtained a driver’s license under a false name or someone else’s Social Security number to speak first with a lawyer, fearing a new application could trigger a fraud investigation.”
Now who exactly are these immigrant advocates? To what end are they advising these criminals and more importantly, who the heck is paying for the services? Are they volunteers, working for the good of mankind, or are they hacks being paid by some nonprofit organization that ultimately skims money from the government by means of a bogus federal grant or porkulus type spending provided by one of the leftist California Senators or Congressmen?
