This is just nuts.
This entire situation is nuts. It's as if they have all lost their collective minds.

Additionally, they don't understand the rules of the roads or the signs. If they don't respect our immigration laws, what makes these idiots think that they will buy insurance and cease fleeing the scene of a traffic accident or even worse a fatality. The more I read out of the mouths of the political panderers the more twilight zone like this entire fiasco is getting.


You know they will accomodate them and have the test in several different languages right? Because this country is all about catering to law breakers who don't care about our laws at all.

It's bad enough with the few tourists that rent cars. I can't imagine adding 10 million more non-English readers to the roads.

First of all from someone that lives in the Chicago area, I can promise you there are more than 250,000 illegals here.

They are by FAR the WORST drivers as they drive under the speed limit, hog the left lane causing road rage, and there are tons of illegals crashing their cars drunk and damaging property or killing citizens.

The insurance industry does pay for these illegals, but I'm sure they transfer the cost to the consumer. So again, the middle class citizen gets the fist.

Brought to you by YOUR united states of American government. Reagan started the DISASTER with giving three million illegals amnesty in 1986.

No doubt. They will probably have interpreters standing by to insure tha they fill in the correct circles in order to pass.

It's time to get that imagination in gear. I have no doubt that the process will be rubber stamped nationwide.

I dont know any details about the Illinois plans but wonder if they will issue just the standard class c drivers license or will also give them A and B class license too. A and B are required for all commercial truck drivers nation wide. If they give the illegals a CDL ( class A and B ) then they could take the jobs now had by american citizens who are truck drivers. It would put hundreds of thousands of americans out of work...I bet even though the ones pushing for the illegals to get license know this but we wont hear them talk about it. Well Im asking right now. Will they issue class A ,B, and C licenses to the illegals? Maybe they in Illinois figure that by giving them drivers license they will leave and go elsewhere to steal driving jobs,,,,
