GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - After seeing what he calls their "passion and pain", Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell promises he will try to help illegal immigrants get a drivers license or identification card.
"We must respond," he told a crowd of immigrants at city hall Tuesday night. "We don't issue drivers licenses or identification cards in the city, but I know we must respond and figure out the most effective way to address your concerns with the State of Michigan."
The Mayor offered his support after immigrants, legal and illegal, spoke at the city commission meeting Tuesday night. They are asking city leaders to pressure the Governor and Secretary of State to change policy and let undocumented residents get a drivers license for transportation and identification. "I can't even go to the doctor, they ask for a document," explained one woman.

Welcome to my world mother F’ers! I LEGAL too!
“I can’t even go to the doctor, they ask for a document,” explained one woman.
Because you are not LEGALLY HERE, dummacita. GO HOME..
Whats wrong with this stupid mayor? What about protecting the rights of the LEGAL residents of Michigan?
I long for the day when it is no longer safe for a treasonous politico to openly support illegal and dangerous acts such as this.
America dies a little bit more every time one of these traitors takes a breath.
Hey, mr mayor, you dimwit...how about deporting these illegals? It is people like this moronic subhuman mayor who are ruining America.
They were getting driver’s licenses till a few years ago when a drunken illegal dragged a 14 year under a stolen car near Kalamazoo. (The illegal was driving on a suspended license)
After seeing what he calls their “passion and pain”,
Oh please!!! Blow it out your @$$ Mayor Dipwad!
The story doesn’t exist on the news site anymore but you get the gist of it.
>>The death of a Mendon (Mi) teenager has now turned the case against this illegal immigrant in a much more serious direction. Daniel Turner, 14, passed away Monday night.
A car hit him Sunday evening while Turner and a friend were walking home from a store on M-60 between Three Rivers and Mendon. Officers tracked their suspect through the snow.
Sergio Onofre is an illegal immigrant who worked at a Kalamazoo greenhouse. Under legislation that just passed this year, illegal immigrants are not supposed to be driving or even have a license.<<
more poop to create a way for the Feds to issue a “National Drivers License” whom do you think is behind this crappola - SEIU, and others whom wish for drivers license and other means in Michigan to overload the system. In Michigan after 48 months welfare recipients are off the rolls. More fluff to create more chaos, that is how the DC idiots in charge operate.
Welcome to real world. Maryland did that 8 years ago.
D/L = instant voter photo-ID.
When they protested the Secretary of state a few weeks back they actually said that not having an ID made them feel singled out if they wanted to vote.
Contrary to popular belief, we do have a voter ID law in Michigan. You can vote without the ID but you have to match a name on the list of registered voters and sign an affidavit which amounts to a signed confession if its investigated.
Michigan's Legislators need better law-making prowess. Signatures can be denyed and the forensic document-examination laboratory "business" is swamped with civil cases that pay big bucks. (Not that it was effective in the first place).
Honestly, most states are pathetic compared to Michigan when it comes to voting laws but few FReepers are willing to admit it.
This could be VERY interesting. If these efforts are successful, then the State loses their “driving is a privelege and not a right” argument. If they “grant” DL’s as a “right,” then they are going to lose many an argument down the line. It is certainly worth keeping track of this effort....
Of course I don’t suspect government drones to do any thinking beyond their “stage 1” abilities.
Tip of the hat to you, FRiend.
What is MADD going to do about that?
