Illinois Considers Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Aliens

Before It’s News – by Frosty Wooldridge

Fixing One Mistake with Another

Dan Stein, president of The Federation for American Immigration Reform,, spoke about it the Republican dilemma.

Trying to make illegality legal creates more illegality.

“Illinois, already a sanctuary state for illegal aliens, now wants to offer driver’s licenses to illegal aliens,” said Stein.  “A coalition of Illinois Democrats, Republicans, and illegal alien advocates are pushing the Legislature to pass a new driver’s licenses bill during its lame duck session.

“The cash strapped state, which in recent years has raised taxes on individuals and businesses and cut services and benefits for legal residents, wants to expand the temporary driver’s license available to legal foreign nationals to illegal aliens. Supporters claim the license could not be used as valid identification and will help make Illinois roads safer by requiring illegal aliens to get insurance while also raising revenue for the state.

“Of course, it defies common sense to argue that illegal aliens, having disregarded so many other laws, would obey the state’s car insurance requirement.

“None of the bill’s supporters acknowledge the costs of allowing illegal aliens to continue to live, work, and travel freely in the state. With an unemployment rate above the national average at 8.8 percent, Illinois can ill afford to attract further illegal immigration to undercut legal workers and hand out valuable resources and services, including in-state tuition benefits and health care, to illegal aliens that should be reserved for legal residents.

“It is no surprise that former Obama aide and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is an ardent supporter of the move. And, like national Republicans, Illinois Republicans have bought into the myth that supporting additional benefits for illegal aliens will win them the Hispanic vote. The last Illinois Governor not to be incarcerated, Republican Jim Edgar, says giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens is “politically smart.”

“Senate President, Democrat John Cullerton, thinks he has the votes to get a driver’s license bill through his chamber as early as this week. The position of Republican legislative leaders remains unknown. Meanwhile, Republican New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez is actively trying to end her state’s practice of issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, citing national security concerns.”

The ironic aspect of legalizing illegal migrants: it gives them a free pass. It gives them legality without being legal.  It encourages more corruption and illegality.

    Almost as bad an idea as bailing out criminal bankers instead of imprisoning them.

  2. BentSpear says:

    Have to pay up on all those votes they bought with this promise. “Land of the Free” has a new meaning now.

    My not voting in this last election just gets positively re-enforced on a daily basis by sh!t examples such as this.

    Follow the logic. If an illegal is allowed to get a license, he will then buy car insurance so therefore our roads will be safer.What!? If the man is here illegally in the first place, what makes you think he will run right out and buy insurance so he can be legal on the road? The thinking is distorted, unrealistic and just plain asinine.

      Welcome to the NWO logic, where the logical becomes illogical and the illogical becomes logical!!! That’s all you need to know. lol

  4. Schuba says:

    So if this passes, does this mean lawmakers can be arrested for aiding a abetting criminals? Because that is exactly what they are doing.

    Insanity abounds.

    Bad decision stop rewarding the law breakers mostly From Mexico re enforce your immigration laws and secure the borders if you continue to reward the undocumented more will continue breaking the law by entering the country illegally and guess what ? they will also demand rights and free benefits STOP PROMOTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. A drivers license is not a right it’s a privilege for law abiding citizens and law abiding legal immigrants and not law breakers i guess the state of Illinois did not review the impact of whats been happening in New Mexico ever since the state have been issuing drivers license to illegals fraud has tremendously increased many illegals have flooded into New Mexico from other states to get a drivers license using fake names and addresses the illegals in Illioniis will not be required to be finger printed because they fear it will discourage the illigals from aplying VERY UNFAIR as a citizen i am required to be finger printed shame on you Illinois for rewarding law breakers
