They voluntarily came here & can happily go back to their respective countries & get drivers licenses.

I'm opposed to the actions of the many states which are issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens.

I don't see any reason to deny them the right to drive. Yea they violated a law, but that law has nothing to do with driving. We let convicted felons drive don't we?

I don't know what kind of human being it takes to think it's a moral thing to do to make people live in fear when all they want is to be able have the same civil rights the rest of us have.

Driving is not a right. It is a privilege.

Touche. What is the basis for denying them this privilege? Immigration has little to do with driving. Seems like a punitive measure to make their lives miserable.

What's your point? If they don't like it, they can go home.

Would you support denying them the ability to buy food under the same rationale of "if they don't like it, they can go home."

Oh and by home you mean that piece of landmass that is controlled by that group of people (the government) that claims they belong to them. Their home is their physical residence in the United States.

They're trespassing squatters.

You can't compare the privilege of driving with buying food. Without food, you'll starve to death. Not driving isn't going to kill you. Come up with a better analogy.

Convicted felons are U.S. citizens. There is no law that once they have served their time that they can't drive. Illegals however don't even have a right to be in this country. What part of that aren't some getting?

Illegals should not and do not have the same rights as citizens. Their lives should be made as uncomfortable as possible. It is an incentive for them to go back home where they belong.

One's home is the one they hold citizenship in unless they are here legally.
