When are people going to wake up! Here in southern California hardly a day goes by without reports of at least one fatal hit and run. As a retired law enforcement officer I can tell you first hand who most of the offenders are. The vast majority are illegals. They are unlicensed, no insurance and have a ingrained fear of police.
The rest of offenders are either drunk or suspended with the same fears.

Now some idiots want to give licenses to illegals. Amazing, violate our laws and thank you here is your California Drivers License. They will still flee the scene of accidents with or without the so called license.
Our Country's laws need to be enforced not bent.

Alot of drunk driving cases ( see Obama's uncle) AND hit and runs are comitted by Illegal Aliens, especially in S. California.

They don't care, their lives are about self gain and a total disregard of ALL laws. Just look at many of their graffitti and trash strewn neighborhoods.

I have a supplement on my policy to cover damages caused by uninsured drivers...it goes up every year. Every other portion of the policy has gone down every year. So annoying.

Regardless of whether it's illegal immigrants committing the crimes or not, hit and runs are heinous acts and beyond cowardly. Personally, I would sentence hit and run killers as murderers. The crime is up there with murder and rape as far as I'm concerned, yet often they get off lightly because it's considered a vehicular crime.

MEXICO CITY The question of whether to give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants has ignited a national debate in the United States.
Yet in Mexico, the biggest source of immigrants to the USA, there's no debate: If you're not in the country legally, you can't get a driver's license.
All of Mexico's 31 states, along with the federal district of Mexico City, require foreigners to present a valid visa if they want a driver's license, according to a survey of states by USA TODAY.
"When it comes to foreigners, we're a little more strict here," said Alejandro Ruz, director of education at the Mexican Automobile Association

Drunk driving laws are just another inconvenient law that illegals feel they are not expected to follow.

These people have zero respect for any of our laws. Once a large group of foreigners has been told it's okay to break immigration laws and do whatever they please, they begin to believe they can disregard any law whatsoever. Felony document fraud? No big deal, illegals are expected to engage in identity theft and stolen documents. Drive without a license or liability insurance? Illegals are given a pass on those laws. Statuatory rape laws? That's against their culture so they are not arrested in these cases. So why would they suddenly respect DWI laws?

That is why we need inmigration reform or at least give them driver license. If they had driver license they wouldnt run after they hit a car or a person. They run because they are scared.

We do not need immigration reform. We need immigration enforcement. Furthermore, they already receive a driver's license in some states, and that does not reduce drunk driving or incidents of hit and run. They run because they're lawless and cowards. No decent person would leave the scene of an accident, especially involving serious injuries or death.
