SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) California on Friday proposed requiring immigrants in the country illegally to present foreign government-issued identification to obtain a driver's license or go through an interview process using other documents to prove their identity.

Rules proposed for immigrant driver's license

It sounds to me those illegal aliens who want Cali ID may've just been screwed over. It is what it is.

Sounds to me that it is fair, although I am still 100% against issuing illegals permits to drive in this country. We should not facilitate their criminal behavior.

I agree. Giving them DL's just makes it easier for them to survive in this country. Instead we should be doing everything to discourage their presence here.

And here I agree with both of you! It's like we're just asking for it, sending out written invitations practically.

Mexico has, for lack of a better description, a federally-issued ID card. It's a voter registration card which is the only true government issued photo ID card, other than a state-issued drivers license. Many, maybe most illegal aliens from Mexico will have such a card. As for illegal aliens from the many other countries who are in the USA, I don't know what they'll be able to produce; probably more difficult for them.

How about we make it simple. In Bright Red, Bold letters, Illegal Alien on both front and back.
No mystery, no confusion and an absolute statement of fact.

Illinois does use a different color background for the undocumented/illegal aliens and the license states, on its face, it's not to be used for official identification purposes. I still don't agree with issuing licenses to illegal aliens, but at least one or more states is showing the license holders status on the licenses.

I think Illegal Immigrants should take themselves to the Immigration department to get their legal documents processed.

Sure just as long as they do it in their own country. The line doesn't form in ours.

Best news I have heard all day, since it is a done deal that illegals get DL (or "permits") in California. Now, how about making them carry automobile insurance? I know people who were unfortunately rear-ended by uninsured illegals. Oh, well. Ho hum attitude.

I still say, from reading the article's dozens of comments, where are the proponents for illegal aliens? Either awfully quiet or totally unaware or ignorant of what is happening all around them. Oh, yeah, many live in gated communities with gardeners and housekeepers who are not here legally. Even Meg Whitman hired illegals at her Atherton estate ( disclosed when she was running/buying for Governor).
