I see that Gil "Seditious" Cedillo is still at it. He'll do anything to help his fellow Latinos, the illegal alien lawbreakers.
La Raza has to be chuckling in their meatball sopa. Let's hope sanity prevails tomorrow. If not, I may go off the grid permanently.
It's in the California Constitution.
More "Equal Protection" mumbo-jumbo?
"It's in the California Constitution?"
legislating from you pc tonight? LOL
where does it say in the California constitution that everyone who lives here has a "right to an education?"
ALL E-mails sent. Thanks for the heads-up! I sent Gil Cedillo (one bill Gil) a special one, asking him to please not bring this legislation up again.

I guess "ONE BILL GIL" is getting lots of mail tonight!
I'm trying to educate you not Arnold. Article 9 of the California State Constitution, read it. Californians have had a right to an education since 1849.
Even in 1849, that would include the children of illegals if the children were born in the US.
I don't know what you are trying to read ino this but when it says Californians having a right to an education it's talking about legal residents not fence crawlers.
That's exactly what I've pointed out to another poster who claimed that American citizens had no such right. What did you read into it?
On, no this could only happen if we don't vote for Arnold.
Surely you jest, this is California.<(¿)>
The bill has been amended to require that the licenses be clearly labeled to distinguish them from those issued to citizens. This is the deal the Guv offered Gil last year that he walked away from.
No kidding! If this were to become law, we couldn't use our California driver's licenses to board planes or enter federal facilities. There would be a massive run by Californians to get US passports.
I have personally witnessed people coaching non-English speakers as they took a driving test at the Poway DMV office. The staff ignores the blatant behavior as the coach points to the answers. This was observed after the "motor voter" BS was passed. The whole examination process is a ruse when it comes to hispanic applicants in that office.
It won't pass the Governators desk. He is 100% against illegals getting licenses.
Heck, i was the the DMV in Long Beach the other day getting a replacement license and i could have been anyone to get a new picture and ID issued.
BILL NUMBER: SB 60 AMENDED BILL TEXT AMENDED IN SENATE MAY 12, 2005 INTRODUCED BY Senator Cedillo ... THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: SECTION 1. This act shall be known, and may be cited, as the California Real ID Act of 2005. SEC. 2. The Legislature intends by the enactment of this act to accomplish the following: (a) Meet or exceed the document and issuance standards set forth in the federal Real ID Act of 2005 (Public Law ____), to ensure that California has a federally recognized and acceptable driver's license and identification card. (b) Provide drivers' licenses that permit driving, but cannot be used for federal identification purposes, consistent with the federal Real ID Act of 2005, to California drivers that cannot meet the minimum identity confirmation requirements necessarily to obtain a federally-recognized driver's license or identification card. SEC. 3. Section 1653.6 is added to the Vehicle Code , to read: 1653.6. In the issuance of drivers' licenses and identification cards under this code, the department shall issue drivers' licenses and identification cards that are in compliance with the Section 202 of Title 11 of the federal Real ID Act of 2005 (Public Law ____). SEC. 4. Section 12801.1 is added to the Vehicle Code , to read: 12801.1.

SEC. 5. Section 12801.5 of the Vehicle Code is amended to read: 12801.5. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law,
the department shall require an applicant for an original driver's license or identification card to submit satisfactory proof that the applicant's presence in the United States is authorized under federal law.

If any provision of this act or its application is held invalid, that invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications that can be given effect without the invalid provision or application. SEC. 8. This act shall become operative only if the federal Real ID Act of 2005 is enacted into law. SEC. 9. This act is an urgency statute necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, or safety within the meaning of Article IV of the Constitution and shall go into immediate effect. The facts constituting the necessity are: In order to comply with the federal Real ID Act of 2005, if enacted, and to reduce the number of unlicensed drivers on our highways, who account for 20 percent of all accidents and, thereby, compromise public safety, it is necessary that this act take effect immediately.
One-Bill-Gil wants CA to issue ("shall issue") CA drivers licences to the illegal aliens again but provides that the licenses "cannot be used for federal identification purposes."
So, how is anyone going to be able to tell the difference between CA licenses that can and cannot be used for federal ID purposes? SB 60 does not provide for any visual clues distinguishing the illegal alien licenses from the regular licenses.
People legally here must follow the provisions of the federal Real ID Act, but people illegally here are exempt. Why aliens are called "California drivers" is curious, since foreigners (legal and illegal) ought to be called foreign drivers. (Then, of course, why would they need CA licenses when they could use their own countries' licenses to drive here?)
