The law applies to anyone driving without a license in CA, not just illegal aliens. Itís interesting that this bill is exclusively for illegals. I guess only legal residents should have their vehicles impounded.

Quote:
LOS ANGELES Ė A California state senator says that the seizure of vehicles from undocumented workers without driverís licenses is an inhumane measure because of the high costs it imposes on families with scanty resources.

ďItís inhumane for the police to take the cars from the workers because they donít have a license and they leave all the things they carry inside the vehicles thrown onto the sidewalk,Ē Democrat Gil Cedillo told Efe.

The policy ďis cruel and humiliating for a community of immigrants of 2.5 million who still donít have documents in Californiathe senator said.

Yet when we scream even a sense of at the least equality, we're biased and racist....unbelievable. They need to keep talking so I know who not to vote for and advise others of the same. Thanks Benicar.

what an ignorant comment. maybe thats how his constituents feel. he could very well be representing their views.

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.

Is it cruel when an unlicensed, uninsured illegal hits another car occupied by legal citizens? Is it cruel when there is no insurance and the illegal simply walks away from it? Is it cruel when said unlicensed uninsured illegal runs over a child and flees the scene?
When will these politicians put the rights of legal americans first. When will they put their own people first?

And Latinos as a group wonder why prejudice is growing against them. Thanks for nothing: you illegal alien apologists AKA traitors. Your actions of demanding special rights for (mostly Hispanic) illegal aliens have besmirched the good name of true blue Americans of Mexican, etc. lineage.

I feel exactly the way you do tinman01. Your so right, when will these politicinas put the needs of legal Americans first. And it is cruel when an uninsured illegal gets in an accident and flees the scene, no this is not right. Good post.

Well, it might just be easier to give them CA, AZ, NM and TX back. There is a lot of gray area, and somebody in Washington MUST be making money off of them, or this would have never been allowed to continue. Interesting.

If the driver does not have a license on his/her person, they are given an opportunity to produce one. They can even call and have someone bring it to them. In any case, why should a bill be exclusively for the benefit of illegal aliens, given that they have no right to even be here?

Its called pandering to a growing voter group. The lust of power is what motivates these elected reps. Fortunately there are some reps who stand by their word.
Chris Carney comes to mind.
