Well, since no one knows exactly how many illegals are actually in California, it was hard to project how many would apply. I'm thinking there's probably 3 to 5 million.

And now CA is in the middle of a severe drought. Meanwhile, they keep inviting in more and more illegals. Don't they understand this simple equation? -- more people=more demands for water.

We sadly have a clueless clown for a governor who does not realize this.

Anyone who lives in CA and doesn't understand that illegals have been getting drivers licenses in CA for years either has not been inside a DMV office in the last 25 years or is willfully being ignorant.

Yes, identity theft of resident Californians who have Hispanic surnames is huge and has been for a long time.

But I always found it curious that when the victims were complaining, they were complaining about the government or whoever not fixing the mix-up fast enough--never about the illegals who were committing the fraud.

the California license or ID under federal law is supposed to look very different from a regular CA license or ID so officials can spot it as being illegal undocumented person, ACLU says that creates a stigma

ACLU needs to start sticking up for Americans, NOT illegal aliens.

Tho I'd think it be funny if ANY DL for an illegal alien actually said "Illegal Alien" on it in big red letter across the front AND back.

In the letter rejecting California’s design, Department of Homeland Security officials wrote that the license “must clearly state on the face and in the machine readable zone that it may not be accepted for federal purposes.”
