''Our actions are based on a plethora of requests the governor has made,'' Cedillo said. ''He wanted a proposal with marked licenses. We're giving him that. He wanted a proposal that provides licenses for driving purposes only. We're giving him that.... There's no need to continue to play politics with this important issue.''
Schwarzenegger's press secretary, Margita Thompson, said the bill is premature because the Department of Homeland Security hasn't issued regulations spelling out the details of federal requirements.
What a mess. give the illegals a rope and they make ya into a pinata, hang ya from a tree, and whack the heck out of ya.
What's there to debate? They're illegals! They don't have the right to anything but a trip back across the border.

"....a license with a unique design or color that wouldn't be widely accepted as a valid identification document. "
I wonder if anyone asked the car insurance companies if they would issue a policy based on a document that dosen't say anything about the identification of the holder ?
So Illegal Aliens can break the law and get a drivers licnese, what laws do legal citizens get to break without fear?
See "[Calif.] Calls needed to stop driver's licenses for illegal aliens":
Agreed - so now let's end the reciprocacy of California's DL's with those of other states. < /sarcasm >
The problem with Cedillo's plan is that insurance is a necessity that requires a driver be ID'd. If the DL can't be used for any other purpose - even ID, how can an agency reasonably insure a driver? One thing will then lead to another and soon the DL will be the document of choice for all/any activity associated with illegal aliens.
No thanks Cedillo, take your proposal and stuff it. Just allow immigration officials to enforce the law.
Cedillo is an agent of the Mexican government and should be deported.
This email was just sent to Cedillo:
Why are you so set on giving California drivers' licenses to illegal border jumpers? Are you one of those who is happy to have criminals living in our country, stealing services from state and local government bodies and crippling hospitals while getting free medical care that we taxpayers have to pay for or see the ERs close and hospitals close?
These people need to be deported, NOT given special privileges. And people like you need to knock off this catering to illegal border jumpers b.s. like right NOW.
And, lest you think I am anti-immigrant, my wife is an immigrant from Jamaica and we went through all the hoops to get her green card.The only thing I ask of someone who wants to come to my country, just like my home, is that they come in the front door and follow the rules. If someone can't be bothered to do just that one simple thing, they do NOT belong here. I am disgusted with so-called "public servants" like you making it so easy for criminal alien border jumpers to cut into the line and circumvent the process established for LEGALLY entering this country. You are a disgrace and should be in prison for conspiracy to violate our immigration laws.
