Sick, just sick. Tho I'd like to see ANY kind of US ID for illegal aliens say "Illegal Alien" on the front AND back of it in big red letters. Too; that ID SHOULDN'T protect an illegal for getting arrested for even the smallest "contact" with the cops.

Immigration status is a federal issue.

I like the new law, because to get that license the immigrant has to pass the driver's test and prove they can drive to our standards. With the new law they will have a license so if they do get involved in a fender bender they won't flee the scene for fear of being locked up or deported for not having a license. Safe driving on COLO streets is a local issue and I think the new law works towards that goal. That's why.

Mach 50: remember old 55 MPH speed limit? THAT was a "Federal law" AND the US states HAD to enforce it or else. So what's so different about ENFORCING other Federal laws like against illegal immigration? Tho like I said before; I'd be Ok with a some kind of ID for illegal aliens IF the cops had the power to bust them for ANY violation.

Maybe they will flee because they don't have auto insurance.

^You beat me to it

What I find incredulous are the ones who support giving illegals drivers licenses by saying "If they don't have licenses, how will they get to work?" Ummm...It's illegal for them to work in this country
