New Jerseyans are largely opposed to the idea of granting driver's licenses to undocumented residents, a measure that has been proposed in the state before.

A Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey Poll conducted in early February found that out of 803 adults surveyed, 62 percent oppose allowing illegal immigrants living in the state to get some type of limited driver's license. Just 33 percent favor the idea.

It is startling that anyone would want to promote the idea that an Illegal Alien should have the right to drive to his/her illegal job where they are either getting paid under the table and avoiding Federal and State taxes or using a stolen SS#. Talk about enabling criminal activity!!

This is why I believe in a federal drivers licence instead of state.
Every state has their own standards. Unfortunately everyone in all 50 states can be made to suffer because of this. New jersey allows illegals a licence. Said illegal unable to read or speak the language then drives into NY or Pa. and cause an accident resulting in deaths. Its determined the accident was caused because the illegal in question misunderstood the signs indicating hazards on the road.
Can't bring the victims back they are dead. The illegal has inadequate or no insurance. ( Which is all too common) Illegal gets a lawyer to sue the state for not having bi-lingual signs. State pays out 5 million in go away money. The victims get nothing.
My point being its just wrong to reward criminal behavior of any kind. Granting illegals a drivers licence is priveledge never earned. With it is a licence to further cheat our country and citizens.

Illegal immigrants shouldn't have any rights and certainly not the right to drive, which isn't a right in the first place.

I want to see all illegals driven out of here, and pronto!

Ironic how the feds seem to know how many illegals there are living in this country but don't know where to find them. I think it's more like they're unwilling to find and deport them.
