not all hispanics think alike!!!

as for the law. well is this for those who dont have a valid license or those who are driving without a license?
ive often left the house without my wallet. would i get my car impounded or be given a court date to show proof of a license? it seems extreme. luckily i have my license number memorized, but most people dont.

Based on the article, it applies to people who don't have a license at all. If you got pulled over without your wallet, they could run your name and find out you have a license. The guy in the article didn't have one.

This seems like common sense to me. Anyone can get arrested for driving with a suspended or no license, immigrant or citizen.

Stories like this make me feel that perhaps all is not lost in this battle.

Advice to the illegals: Don't play the game if you can't afford to lose!

Chris Carney comes to mind.
Nah, I think there's more to it then that. Someone is making big money, but who? That's what I don't know.

The big money you speak of is in the form of campaign contributions.

phew!

i know folks who have been caught without a license (forgotten it, lost it, etc) and have thus been given a court date to show proof. i thought impounding the car might be the next step?!

its good to know.

that being the case no problem.

if you are going to drive you better have a license. if you dont, then make sure your car is spotless and you follow the rules of the road.

I never said that all "regular" Hispanics think alike but you show me one Hispanic politician who doesn't advocate for illegal aliens and I will then eat my so-called "ignorant" comment.

no, show me proof that they ALL do! you are the one making such a silly connection. i call it suspect.
therefore you
A) show proof, or
B) say "yes 'the one', you are correct, it is silly and ignorant to think that all hispanic politicians think alike and advocate for illegals. that would be as silly as thinking that all black politicians think alike and support affirmative action".

that simple. and im sure there is this guy in florida that would disagree with sedated cedillo. (by the way im no fan of cedillo.)

Try the "immigration report card" put out by Numbers, USA. I posted the link in here before. Click on any Hispanic surname in congress and you will get your answer. If you don't want to believe that website then go to each Hispanic congressman's individual websites and find out how they view illegal immigration and their solutions to it.

I can understand a person being here illegal. But I can not understand why once they are here they think they have a right to do anything a person here who is citizen has a right to do......They dont have a right to do anything here.
