As sheriff of Illinois largest county, I am responsible for providing safe roads. We are all safer when every driver is trained, tested, licensed and insured. That is why I support SB957, legislation that requires unlicensed immigrant drivers to obtain Temporary Visitor Drivers Licenses.
Illinois already offers a Temporary Visitor Drivers License to immigrants with non-work visas. Immigrants are driving every day. They need to get to work, take their children to school, shop at grocery stores or go to church. The TVDLs are visually distinct with a purple background. They are marked on the front that they are not valid for identification purposes, meaning that they cannot be used to vote, purchase a firearm or board a plane. SB957 expands the TVDL to allow immigrants to drive here legally, on a temporary basis, as long as they are trained, tested and have proof of insurance.

Now check this out...Emanuel supports immigrant license bill.......The mayor says that the bill is a necessary step forward for immigrants' rights....http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/local&id=8944150
The mayor indicates driving is no longer privilege for illegals, it's their right to have drivers licenses
That will certainly make it easier for them to vote.
The idiocy of libs is certainly measured in one of the dimensions of infinity.
we’ve become a country where illegality and citizens of another country are openly supported. We can only go to hell from here. It’s pure corruption, who possibly can respect our nation or laws any longer.
Why the hell should anyone respect the laws under these circumstances? Isn’t it only a matter of time before there is a revolt?
Great idea! Let’s hand out voter registrations, too!
This is astonishing!
The head LAW ENFORCEMENT officer writes a letter encouraging ILLEGAL activity!
He might as well have written a letter pleading, “Let gang-bangers who are mad at each other murder each other freely in my county.” Or, “Allow poor people who really NEED the items shoplift without penalty.” Same principle, differs only in the details.
Burns my britches to no end that these illegal alien bastards break the law coming here and then demand the protection of it! This is a law man, a cop saying criminal law breakers should have drivers licenses. Hey Sheriff, f**k you.
No, Sheriff Tom, you are responsible for enforcing the law as charged under the Constitution, "Equal Protection for All", so you MUST vigorously enforce the part of the law that forbids drivers licenses for Illegal alien criminals.
You have no authority or responsibility to "provide safe roads", period.
This is where there is another problem with what used to be the government of the American People. If a revolt begins, our once the government of the American People have slipped in agents and military personnel to kill Americans and place the blame on those who are participating in a revolt. Our once the government of the American People have planned for many contingencies where any revolt and resulting deaths would be played as the fault of the revolters, by a compliant media, even if it was not the case. To say Its pure corruption is an accurate statement, followed by We can only go to hell from here.
Who possibly can respect our nation or laws any longer?
One when viewing the lay of the field knows those in authority, in D.C., have the least respect for our nation's laws. Its pure corruption, We can only go to hell from here.
Illegal aliens need to get to work here in the USA??
I think he misses the point here
Gasp, I replied to the idiot sheriff without noting that this was Chicago - our next bombing range.
Sorry, what these folks say is of no consequence - after CW-II.
It’s a slippery slope. What was the big registration for illegals 18 and under a couple months ago...oh, and they registered them to vote as well.
Put the zapato on the other foot, Idiot Sheriff!
As Cabesa de Policia of Mexico`s largest State, Chihuahua, I am responsible for providing safe roads. We are all safer when every driver is trained, tested, licensed and insured. That is why I support MEXSB957, legislation that requires unlicensed immigrant Guatemalan drivers to obtain Temporary Visitor Drivers Licenses.
Chihuahua already offers a Temporary Visitor Drivers License to Guatemalan immigrants with non-work visas. Illegal Guatemalan Immigrants are driving every day. They need to get to work to take jobs away from Mexicans so Mexicans can sneak illegally into USA to do illegal work, take their children to Mexican schools, shop at grocery stores or go to church. The MEXDLs are visually distinct with a polkadot background. They are marked on the front that they are not valid for identification purposes, meaning that they cannot be used to vote, purchase a firearm or board a plane, if there are any. MEXSB957 expands the MEXDL to allow illegal Guatemalan immigrants to drive here legally, on a temporary basis, as long as they are trained, tested and have proof of insurance but in USA our Mexican nationals illegally there do not need all this stuff. They just do it by driving without insurance, running over nuns, driving drunk and killing Americans and breaking the US laws for the past 30 years.
They just steal American`s ID`s and social security numbers with fake documents. Viva Mexico! Viva Chihuahua!
We don need no stinking documents.
There is no requirement that each state recognize the other's driver's licenses. Indiana State Police could start a daily stop and show to see if someone had an Illinois license on the Tri-state ~ and simply tow offender's automobiles of to the side or resale at the nearest auction site ~
I can’t believe Senator Bill Brady co-sponsored this bill.
Bad cop, no doughnut for you. I am running out of duct tape to wrap around my head to keep it from exploding.
Whomever they are supposed to be, NO
Dont let ILLEGAL ALIENS get drivers licenses either...
Well, Mr. Sheriff, I’m sure you’d support me getting a Drivers License if I, say, owed $50,000 in state income taxes, or $10,000 in property taxes in your jurisdiction. Or if I’d been ducking jury duty in your county for several years. Or if I have an FTA for a petty theft charge, rape charge or drunk driving? Huh? You’d support it? Screw you and your deputies.
Sheriff, Please, We know cops want to do according to the law. So somebody is pulling your strings. That’s too bad.
Sheriff, if they have a job and kids in school, what is temporary about that? That sounds like somebody has settled in to me.
Sheriff, when you reward criminal acts you give the impression that there is leeway and laws are guidelines not absolute. But that’s for the courts not you. You swore an oath to uphold the law. Either you will or you won’t. You cannot have both ways. If you compromise your principles you have nothing.
