“We know well that it’s against the law to drive without a license but it’s just because of need that we do it – to take our kids to and from school, to go to and from the market, Listen to police “I rigorously enforce the law," the chief said. "The law gives me the option whether or not I impound that vehicle for 30 days. I am exercising that option because of the adverse impact of this law.”

The chief said unlicensed U.S. citizens and legal residents stopped at checkpoints will still see their cars impounded, because unlike undocumented immigrants they have the choice to get a license.

Amid an increasingly anti-immigrant political environment in the U.S., Mexican Consul General Juan Carlos Mendoza praised the new policy Who said crime does not pay

Anybody caught without a driver’s license while driving should have their car towed, regardless of race or immigration status. Why would illegal immigrants be granted MORE freedom than American citizens?!

Okay. I bet a US citizen who forgot his/her license would not be afforded the same luxury. Nice of the LA cops to selectively enforce the law.

Isn’t that a violation of equal protection or something?

The news came as a relief for Maria Ranjel of Boyle Heights.

Is this where God unleashed the plague of boils?

“We know well that it’s against the law to drive without a license but it’s just because of need that we do it – to take our kids to and from school, to go to and from the market," Ranjel said through a translator. "It’s just too hard to take the bus.”
If it's so damned hard living here, just go back to wherever the hell you came from and it will be a lot easier (for you and for us).

Seems like a clear equal protection issue here. If anything, citizens should have a MORE favorable situation...

This is just more lunacy we have grown to expect from Loon-town, U.S.A.

California conservatives have my empathy, but the rest can fall into the ocean for all I care.

The news came as a relief for Maria Ranjel of Boyle Heights. Her husband and three sons are undocumented immigrants who drive all the time, even though they're ineligible to apply for drivers licenses in California.

I guess illegals are no longer "living in the shadows" (as the amnesty proponents declare), since they can openly live and flout the laws. We have a name and city...ICE would already be shipping her and her family out if we lived in normal times.

Without due process first I do not believe in property confiscation “from any legal US citizens” no matter what the charge. I understand no drivers license = no auto insurance. So by the PD selectively enforcing the law wouldn't that make the city liable if one of these illegal drivers gets into an accident after they and their car have been released?

Across the board, from welfare to affirmative action to immigration, government policy is oriented to make social parasitism the easier, cheaper, advantageous choice and responsibility the habit that promises immense penalty.

Disparate treatment, a lawsuit waiting to happen, wher is the ACLU defending USC's and LAPR's? What an idiot, illegals have a choice not to drive.
