If they DO have licenses, complain about them... having licenses.

I'm not seeing how this fits into the standard narrative of them "stealing" from americans. Is there a shortage of driver's licenses? Are we going to have to tap the strategic driver's license reserves again?

We're going to get illegals out of our country and you can go with them if they mean that much to you.

But District Court Judge Sarah Singleton in Santa Fe issued a temporary restraining order blocking the program, arguing in a brief ruling that "irreparable injury" would occur from "constitutional deprivations to the applicants."

WHAT?!? I wanna see an American try THAT in Mexico.
A driver's license is a constitutional right for illegal aliens?

That's interesting. I wonder if the good judge can cite the section of the constitution that stipulates this.....

Oh sure. Illegals and non-citizens vote all the time.

IMO, a person should have to prove they were either born or naturalized in this country while registering to vote along with a picture I.D. A picture I.D. should also have to be presented at the voting booth.
