Skip to comments.Illegal Immigrant Drivers License Program Kicking Off
Posted on 10/17/2013 8:01:47 AM PDT by moonshinner_09
Illegal immigrants, driving legally on the road. Next month, non-visa status people in Illinois can begin the process of obtaining a temporary driver's license. Despite the controversial law being on the books since January, many questions remain.
"Public safety." "But they're here illegally." Those are the main arguments for and against a law that allows illegal immigrants to obtain a temporary drivers license for three years.
"This means freedom," Claudia Fabian, who came to the U.S. from Argentina, said. "It means being not scared anymore of maybe you are not going to be stopped that day and put in jail or perhaps deported."
Fabian became a U.S. citizen in 1994. She calls this law "amazing."
"It's a feeling of 'I'm a part of this,'" she said. "I'm a part of this community. I'm accepted."
Supporters also say the law will encourage illegal immigrants to take a driver's test and get insurance. But questions remain.
"The state of Illinois already requires, and they have for like 20 years, people have to have insurance," Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson said. "But, we know people don't have insurance on their cars, so the law doesn't work anyway. So why do we think it will work for undocumented people? It just won't."
The Illinois Secretary of State's Office says they will not give information to federal immigration authorities without a request from the government.

Applicants may bring an interpreter to assist with the application process....Real smart laws. Give out licenses to illegals who cannot read or speak english but will be given a license anyway.Illegals will get insurance long enough to get the license. When it comes down to it do we send our money to Mexico for our families or do we make this insurance payment that will take away money from our families ?You already know fake insurance cards will be coming hot off the printers,so that illegals can provide, indeed I do have insurance.You will hear the agruement,what am I suppose to do my family needs food are they suppose to do without food because I have to make this insurance payment ?Why doesn't il offer the same list of documents requirements for Americans such as ,Utility Bill - electric, water, trash,telephone, cable, or gas or any other form of approve documents.If it is good enough for the illegals,it should be good enough for the Americans.
Will they be tested and do they require insurance ?
Things are going downhill fast now.
“how many ebt cards am I holding up?”
“It means being not scared anymore of maybe you are not going to be stopped that day and put in jail or perhaps deported.”
What part of illegal do these morons not get? Yes there is always of fear of being caught when committing criminal acts.
Sovereignty surrender,letting foreigners make U.S. law and paying them for the privilege.
"tested" and "require" are now race whistles.

*”This means freedom,” Claudia Fabian, who came to the U.S. from Argentina, said. “It means being not scared anymore of maybe you are not going to be stopped that day and put in jail or perhaps deported.” *
The point is that they should NOT have freedom. They should be put in jail for stealing jobs!
The blood of everyone killed by an illegal is on the heads of those that put this ludicrous law into place!
I wonder if the government would be so kind as to send me a list of all the illegal activities I am entitled to commit as an actual citizen?
It’s for the children.
The government is the avowed enemy of the citizens of the nation.
easy answers...... no and no
What could possibly go wrong?
“Supporters also say the law will encourage illegal immigrants to take a driver’s test and get insurance.”
bwwhahahah, that right there is funny as sh**
I got rear ended last year by an illegal without insurance. Guess who forked over the 500.00 deductible to get my car fixed?? This is a damn joke.
