not so fast. from the article:


Attorney General Mike Cox's opinion is legally binding on state agencies and officers unless reversed by the courts.

...or unless the voters dump Cox, and the new AG reverses the abomination.

I can't believe those states were giving them licenses in the first place.

Where are the apologist to deride this decision and those of this board who happen to feel this to be a blow for the little guy for a change?

And you think these vile illegal criminal vermin (as has been stated around here) will not drive simply because they do not have a license? Heck, if they stole into this country to rape pillage and murder and work for cheap wages, you think not having a drivers license will faze them?

Good point, they're going to do it anyway, continue to break our laws regardless, so we might as well just give them licenses. While we're at it, we should just give murderer's guns and knives, car thieves the keys to the cars, and burglars a list of addresses of good houses to rob. In fact, since people are going to break the law anyway, why even make and enforce laws?

Nooooooooooooooooo.........I don't think they will stop driving....however the act of driving without a license is a lawful and legitimate reason especially when coupled with not having insurance... for the local police to seize the vehicle and to hold it until it is properly tagged to a lawful owner....properly insured as required....and held until the driver has been licensed.....which they wont be...then take the car..and sell it at public auction...We do here.
And noooooooooooooo I don't believe that most of them came to rape pillage and plunder........they came for a better life....they just should do it properly...........I have no problem with that.
