"Immigrant" advocates? We should free up our tax dollars so illegal aliens can get driver's licenses when they don't even have a right to be in this country? Are they nuts?

Ok let me get this straight if I may.

You come here illegally i.e. already broke the law, BUT you want to use the legal system to sue to obtain a privilege reserved for people with legal status?

Shouldn't these illegal aliens be put in jail just for breaking the law for starters??

You'd think so but from what we are seeing, you would be wrong.

I say, give them licenses, make a note in the system that they are here illegally and you'll have a good start on a database when enforcement begins. I still believe that there names in the databases of the illegals that have been encountered that they were not allowed to do something with and that when enforcement is allowed as per the law, it will "facilitate" enforcement.

Sadly, if you live in an area with illegals, it drives up the cost of your auto insurance because they are more apt to hit and run. It makes for an exciting walk with the dogs when you realize that they are driving, would hit and run and you're also on the lookout for their loose pit bulls.

And, yes, they should be put in jail and deported but only US citizens have to obey the law in the US now.

Well they should just sue like other illegals have done because illegals have rights too.

FWIW Germany just got sued by a bunch of syrian refugees because it's taking too long for them to get their free housing and financial benefits. They waited a week and that's long enough.

Empowered foreigners folks.

Yes, have them line up and give them whatever they want noting that they are illegally in the US.

From a science fiction standpoint: We put a magnet in the driver's licenses, the public assistance credit cards, the free phones and then we take a giant, HUGE magnet and stand at the souther border........... It would have to be a magnet that wouldn't draw from anything except that "special" and demanding population. Well, I can "dream" if they can "dream".
