AURORA — The Illinois office that issues driver’s licenses is preparing to roll out its biggest initiative in 14 years: helping undocumented immigrants apply for those licenses.

Come December, when appointments become available to apply for the licenses, an Aurora facility will be one of 25 designated locations across the state where immigrants can go to get them.

“This is our No. 1 priority right now in our office,” said Tom Benigno, chief of staff to Secretary of State Jesse White, who leads the office that is overseeing the initiative.

Benigno joined State Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia (D-Aurora) and Alderman Juany Garza at a Spanish-language workshop Saturday at East Aurora High School, attended by about 50 adults, to explain how to obtain the temporary license and to warn applicants about frauds surrounding the licenses. It was the fourth such session hosted in Aurora since March.

Talk about double standards.Here....Under the new law, which was signed by Gov. Pat Quinn in January, undocumented immigrants are eligible for a three-year temporary driver’s license, which cannot be used for identification purposes and is invalid without proper insurance.

The license can’t be used to vote, work, fly on an airplane or purchase a gun.

Fast forward to here...Supporters say the initiative promotes public safety because it will encourage more drivers to get car insurance and allow immigrants to legally drive to work and pick up children from school. The facial recognition technology used to issue license, they say, will help prevent fraud.And here..Officials still are unsure how many people will apply for the license, given fears undocumented immigrants have about coming forward with their identities.

But they have no documents and now they do when it is rewarding them? And here special treatment..If an individual used a false Social Security number to obtain a license, he or she has to call the secretary of state’s fraud division to report it. The individual could obtain a legal license only after a 12-month suspension and paying a reinstatement fee

allow immigrants to legally drive to work

Since they are in the country illegally, they do not have a work permit. So, why do they need to drive to work?

it will encourage more drivers to get car insurance...”

The first policy will be valid for the first ten minutes after obtaining the license and they will never be heard from again. Wonder if Illinois requires coverage that includes being in an accident with an uninsured motorist. They are going to need it if they don’t already have it.

This is part of a NATIONAL CAMPAIGN SPONSORED BY THE OBAMA REGIME to ensure a permanent Democrat majority by enabling illegal alien Democrat voters to vote in 2016, if not before then.

Will their car insurance, tag and registration fees be subsidized by the rest of us?
