Just when some states are getting their act together and cracking down NY has gone off the deep end. According to Lou Dobbs CNN report tonight the Governor of NY has just signed in to affect a law which will allow illegals to get a drivers license. What in the hell is wrong with NY????

why would they voluntarily sign up for driver's licenses if they weren't trying to be somewhat legit? just because some immigrants circumvent the lengthy (sometimes 10+ years) application process doesnt mean they dont want to live in america and abide by its laws.

^^^^

Because they want to drive and not be taken into custody for not having proper identification, if they get pulled over

I guess the governor thinks this is a fast way to get some cash

That is a Myth...

Mexican laborers work to make the rich companies richer, richer companies pay more taxes.

I think if we do the math in a grand summation of:

Total cost to taxpayers due to illegals.
- Total tax income from the companies that the illegal laborers work for.
= I think the American government is doing fine.

Your state and local governments might be hurting, but the IRS is doing great!

Ever wonder why the IRS doesn't crack down on hiring illegals?
