DPS prevented from enforcing new license rules (TX)
Associated Press ^ | ANABELLE GARAY

DALLAS -- A judge blocked the Texas Department of Public Safety on Thursday from continuing to enforce new rules that prevent some legal immigrants from obtaining driver's licenses and identification cards.

State District Judge Orlinda L. Naranjo in Austin issued a temporary injunction and found DPS acted outside its scope of authority when it adopted the policy last year.

"This case is not about illegal immigrants obtaining driver licenses, it is about legal residents who have been denied or have been threatened a denial of a driver license," Naranjo wrote.

As long as they are Legal Residents, they should not be denied a DL.

Border agents seize more than 4 tons of marijuana
EL PASO, Texas — U.S. Customs agents have found more than four tons of marijuana in a truck crossing into the United States.

Customs and Border Protection agents found 9,084 pounds of marijuana hidden in a commercial shipment of auto parts being driven across the border from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, on Wednesday.

Officials said that when the drugs were found the driver of the 1995 GMC trailer was traveling in the Fee and Secure Trade lane, which requires the driver to be preapproved for expedited entry.

More than 6,600 bundles of marijuana, worth an estimated $7.2 million, were found mixed in with the auto parts.

No arrests were made.

Oh, and God Bless Texas!

If you read the entire story, the new guidelines were to exclude people who could not prove they were going to be within the state for at least a year - which would apply mostly to those with temporay visas who had come to the U.S. the proper way.

I'm not upset with the ruling. To me, the state identifications need to be spread as wide as possible provided they clearly state who is allowed here temporarily and the date their visa expires so any election judge or election observer can clearly see that they are not eligible to vote.

I believe a good compromise can be found here that allows more people to obtain licenses or ID cards yet addresses the concerns of the DPS in terms of fraud.

Based on the article, these people are not long term residents OR immigrants.

They are people here on temporary work visas or seasonal migrant workers. That’s why they only have short term visas

I couldn’t get her a license even though she was in on a “spouse of an H1B VISA holder VISA” (I forget the exact name). This is a three year VISA, which is hardly short term. I could get the license but not her.

I think the article may miss the biggest problem - spouses unable to drive, even though the working/main VISA holder could get a license.

You know what is funny about all of this is that...Lemme stop here for a sec...

Has anyone been to any DMV office lately???

The people running those offices are not the sharpest bowling balls in the bag, if you catch my drift...

You could walk in, show them a water bill with your name on it, give them a story, and you’ll get your picture taken, and a temp DL till the real plastic arrives...

No worries, right???

They are not long term residents - they have less than 6 months left on visas - that is why they were turned down.

A few years ago, the Texas Employment literally had a red carpet and a person making sure the illegals went to the right line. I was behind two illegals where one produced 3 different social security cards. The clerk was trying to hush them up. People need to look up their social security numbers and see who is using the card other than themselves. People would be surprised. It’s not just illegals; it’s people who do not like America either.

You are correct - when it comes to WORKERS. Spouses of WORKERS, even when they have much more than 6 months left on their VISA, are unable to get drivers licenses. It is because spouses do not get SSNs, only workers do.

Did you know that coming in here to work? If not, perhaps you should have checked local laws -

Nobody would tell you that you could not get a license. They “effectively” make it impossible by creating identification requirements that cannot be met without a SSN. I think that is ignorant to accept immigrants, as long as their spouses do not drive. By the way, this is not uniform across the US. I think each state sets their identification requirements.

The very helpful and polite folks at the Texas Department of Vital Statistics can have Texans a valid copy of their birth certificates within 10 business days . I had one already , got 3 more certified copies so as to keep a copy in my homes safe, safe deposit box at bank and my executors (brothers) safe. Extra copy of BC is carried in addition to passport and other key documents when I have to leave and return to conus.

This decision is BS IMO.

For those from other parts of the conus I suspect their states department of vital statistics and records can meet their needs just fine if they now live in Texas.

This judges decision was agenda driven IMO..........doom on her !
