I wonder if they're ok with overpopulation too. I mean, you don't want those beautiful landscapes of the state to be ruined.

Who knows, you may be surprised.

I talked to a few people here in New York since the alien children began to come across the border and the effect has not been what I expected. Even the Liberals I know seem to be angry at the kid's parents and even at Obama and the Federal government for not enforcing the laws.

Most Liberals genuinely want to help people, including these poor migrants. But if you talk to them about the effects of uncontrolled illegal immigration on the low income job market, on the housing and rental markets, on overburdened inner city schools and even environmental issues as E30is mentions - they are getting it. Its just that the PC media has teamed up with the Democratic establishment and the Republican party business wing for so long that too many Americans have been sitting around with their heads in the sand.

''The law would have taken effect January 1 of this year.''

''But foes gathered enough signatures to put the measure on the November ballot.''

''Proponents said this isn't about citizenship - it's about safe driving.''

"Not to act as ID but to demonstrate that the person with the card knows Oregon laws and passed a drivers test - and they know how to drive," ''explained state Sen. Lee Beyer, D-Springfield.''

''The law would allow thousands of immigrants living in Oregon without legal permission to get a 4-year drivers licence. ''

''Beyer said the current law wasn't working and failed to ensure drivers carried insurance.* ''

What part of ILLEGAL don't people understand? What makes them think they're going to get insurance? Oregon is just as bad as California.
Good for Oregon - since the Citizens of Oregon approve of the Illegal surge on the Texas border -- put them on a plane and take them to the good citizens of Oregon. They can get their driver's license, housing, food, medicare, welfare benefits and education in Oregon.

Problem solved.

Agreed. Things are getting bad when even the "libs" say enough is enough and THEY want illegal aliens deported.

I'm totally for it. Give them licenses in Oregon so that they leave WA once and for all.

The fate of a little-noticed ballot measure in strongly Democratic Oregon serves as a warning to President Barack Obama and his party about the political perils of immigration policy.

Even as Oregon voters were legalizing recreational marijuana and expanding Democratic majorities in state government, they decided by a margin of 66-34 to cancel a new state law that would have provided driver's licenses to people who are in the United States illegally.

Oregon immigration vote is a warning for Obama

Agreed. IMHO things are starting to turn against any kind of amnesty for illegal aliens.
