According to Papers Please:
A sickening Calif. bill is set to pass in October unless the governor vetoes it. Bill A.B. 1465 is just another example of police state America gone crazy.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles shall require an applicant for an original driver’s license or identification card to submit satisfactory proof of residency and that the applicant’s presence in the United States is authorized under federal law.
The bill is silent on what would constitute evidence of “California residency and that the applicant’s presence in the United States is authorized under federal law”, and on what standard of “proof” would be required. It would be up to the DMV to decide what this means.
We didn’t receive “authorization” to move to California from other states. Did you? Did anyone? How would we satisfy our burden of showing such “authorization”? And what about native Californians?We thought our right of residence anywhere in the USA was one of our human rights as US citizens, not dependent on any “authorization” from the government.
Does anyone trust DHS? How long before RMV’s everywhere are instructed to deny issuing driver’s licenses to people that speak out about the government?
DHS outsourced state drivers licensing and ID’s to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) through a no-bid contract.
“The breakdown of awards, obtained by HSToday.us, signifies that AAMVA effectively gains a no-bid contract under the awards, as DHS designates it the sole national centralized database of driver’s license information under REAL ID through a grant award to the state of Missouri.”
The AAMVA works with DMV’s nationwide to identify ‘problem drivers’…
“The Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS) is a system that allows jurisdictions and other organizations to search the National Driver Register (NDR) data. The NDR is a repository of information on problem drivers provided by all 51 U.S. jurisdictions. Based on information received as a result of an NDR search, PDPS “points” the inquiring jurisdiction to the State of Record (SOR), where an individual’s driver status and history information is stored. Based on the information received from the SOR, the issuing state decides if the applicant is eligible to receive a new or renewed driver license.”
You might as well replace that last sentence with, DHS will instruct the DMV if the “applicant is eligible to receive a new or renewed drivers license.”
Still think that’s crazy, our politicians would never let that happen? Here’s a telling example of what it’s like to get a drivers license in America right now.
Below is an excerpt taken from the National Driver Register Problem Driver Pointer System page.
The National Driver Register Status:
– No Match: The individual does not have record a on the NDR.
– Licensed (LIC): Licensed means the individual holds a license in that State and the privilege to drive is valid.
– Eligible (ELG): The individual privilege to drive or apply for a license in a State(s) is valid.
– Not: The individual privilege to drive in a State(s) is invalid.
– NEN: The individual privilege to drive in a State(s) is invalid due to a non-moving violation.
What have we learned so far? DHS, the DMV and police think our government has the right to grant Americans the privilege to drive.
But wait it gets worse…
EVERY police encounter, whether you’ve been arrested or not and EVERY driving infraction you’ve ever had is recorded by DHS/RMV.
Below, is an excerpt taken from NDR’s website “Recording, Sharing, and Using Information” section…
“Arrest records and records of police contact. These records, kept by police, reflect an individual’s previous arrests and any other episodes involving the individual that resulted in police contact but may not have resulted in an arrest.”
Records of prior diversions. These records may be kept by police, prosecutors, or the court.
(Click here to find out about court ordered diversions.)
Since they’ve already acknowledged they have records of EVERY police encounter you’ve ever had, you can bet they have your entire school records as well.
DHS & the RMV are also keeping a record of any DUI dismissals an individual might have had, “first, such a system should track all offenses, from arrest through dismissal or sentence completion.”
They even have a section that claims to show you how you can get your name removed from the NDR. But all it really says is good luck, contact each state and ask them to remove your name. We all know what the odds of that are.
The process is a lot simpler than many states or employees make it. Here are the steps for you to use in order to get removed from the NDR and get your license restored.
- Get your National Driver Registery File Your National Driver Registery file will tell you which states have reported your records to the NDR. Even though you may think only one state has your record, it’s a good idea to check your NDR file to guarantee that you know all of the states that you will need to get your records from.
- Get Your Driver Record from each state listed in your National Driver Register File
Once you have your National Driver Registery file, you can come back to this website to get the forms that you need from each respective state that is listed in your file. You will need to get the form for each state, complete the forms entirely and then mail them in.
- Contact Each State and Resolve All Outstanding Issues
Once you have your State Driver Record(s), contact each individual state that has listed you on the NDR and find out what you need to do in order to get your record cleared with each respective state. In many cases, the state(s) will include this information with your state driver record.
“Our mission [NDR] is to improve traffic and transportation safety by providing a nationwide database of problem drivers that assists State driver licensing agencies in identifying these individuals and assists employers in making hiring and certification decisions.”
Not only will you be denied a drivers license in the near future, you could be denied a job…
The AAMVA is also helping DHS institute E-Verify nationwide:
E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.
The Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE) initiative is an enhancement to the E-Verify program that verifies the validity of driver’s license and ID card information by matching the data entered by employers against jurisdiction records.
