Colorado to issue driverís licenses to immigrants (in the country illegally)
Associated Press ^ | Aug. 1, 2014 2:12 AM EDT | Ivan Moreno

Colorado will begin issuing driver’s licenses and identification cards to immigrants Friday regardless of their legal status, underscoring a sea change in a state that less than a decade ago passed strict immigration enforcement laws.

Now, thousands of immigrants are waiting to get cards they hope will add a degree of legitimacy to their residency in Colorado. About 9,500 people are signed up for appointments through the next 90 days to get the documents, with more getting scheduled every day. Both people in the country illegally and those who have temporary legal status will qualify.

The demand for the licenses and identification cards has been tremendous, with the state’s website for appointments crashing at one point because of traffic, and immigrant advocates urging officials to add more locations where people can go. So far, appointments are being handled at only five locations—Denver, Aurora, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, and Grand Junction. …

Was this law passed before or after the dope legalization?

I thought there was some kind of national law that birth status had to be proved by 2017 before one could get a DL.

Looks like Obama’s attitude of “le loi, c’est moi” carries down to his sycophant state rulers.

I wonder if those racist driving tests will be waived for the illegals?

Sure, if they want to “expedite” the “backlog” due to the “demand”.

I guarantee there will be a lawsuit filed soon (if it hasn’t been already) claiming that the higher fee for licenses for illegals is racist and discriminatory.

CO people just can’t wait to collect driver licenses fees wherever they can net them.

CO people have done so much for so long to damage themselves; I think this will continue forever.

Sure, only for the revenue to go back into the pockets of these “act of love/immigrant” types via government “benefits”.

It ain't about collecting fees.
It's about STEALING ELECTIONS ! ! !
And 'RATS CAN'T STEAL ELECTIONS WITHOUT ILLEGAL VOTES !

Colorado is just the latest of 10 states that 'RATS have duped the voters into putting government Identification Documents into the hands of ILLEGALS so they can show them at the voting booths.
How much STUPIDER can these legal citizens of these 10 states be ?

Natural citizens must jump through hoops to get a license, but an illegal
cuts through the line without any identification. Motor Voter!

So now that Obama has set the precedent for breaking the law
what is left but for States to break their own, while everyone is stoned.

Does anybody really care anymore? The USA is going down without even a whimper.

According to the Federal Real ID Act, we need to see proof of your current address

Utility bill
Credit card statement
Pay stub or earnings statement
Rent receipt
Telephone bill
Transcript or report card from an accredited school
Bank statement or checkbook
Mortgage document
Tax document
Homeowners/renter's insurance policy
Vehicle registration
Other items with address that can be reviewed by Driver's License personnel

Driver's License provides services related to:
Driver's license and state identification card issuance
Driver education
Driver testing
Motor vehicle records requests
Commercial driver's license issuance
Voter registration
Organ donor registry

“Looks like Colorado has been completely Californicated.”

I saw this coming back in the early 80’s when the Kalifornia masses migrated to Colorado to get away from the problems they had created and lived with in CA. The dumb asses only brought their same problems to CO and now its happening all over again. Glad we move out a long time ago. CO WAS a great place back then, today, NADA!!!!

claiming that the higher fee for licenses for illegals is racist and discriminatory.

That makes no sense, illegals are being given loaded debit cards and EBT cards.
Any money they have is our Tax dollars. Here in Dallas I see them shopping
for clothing, refrigerators at Home Depot and other items from local shops
using those cards. They do not speak one word of English and immediately
you can see they're not even Mexicans, but rather persons from deeper south.

The report on consumer spending is false by not taking into account of the
Millions possibly Billions being handed out to illegals. Tax dollars
artificially propping up the economy.


All Americans had better be on alert, when that money runs out our Economy will crash.
All the Federal money propping our Market and economy is a ruse, and has been done
to keep the economy artificially going. It's also being done to force the Repubs
into the same quagmire (Brilliant Move) or crash the economy if the GOP takes over.
It's a plan set in motion starting in 2008, but planned out for at least the last 20-years.

Oh, and another thing. Once the Dollar collapses (And it Will) WWIII is almost
inevitable. Every other country will follow and the uproar will be deafening.

The world economy will collapse, no country will be untouched.

Look up “sarcasm” in the dictionary.

Of course it makes sense. It’s all part of the plan.

The ID cards will be considered voter ID. That is why they give them licenses.

What do you bet they will not be expected to have car insurance.

And don’t tell me car insurance is required in Colorado. It may be for Americans, but it will be overlooked for illegals. They hit you, you pay.

No insurance requirement noted on my previous document post.
Did CO drop that requirement recently, I wonder. All states require it. Wow.

Not that I know of. Colorado requires proof of insurance to register a vehicle - insurance is attached to each vehicle, not the drive.

I didn't know that. Tx and Va require insurance to be licensed. But that might change
to support this invasion.

Illegals driving with or without license. They don’t worry about our laws because nobody holds them to the law. The cops look the other way in many cases.
They want them to have a license to register them to vote.

I was just thinking about the next step the Rats might take, giving them birth certificates.
When there is no rule of law nothing will stop this madness, or any madness. Tyranny.

The excuse could be that they don't want to be left out, or feel bad for being foreigners.

My Gas company Mis-spelled my Last name, does that mean i can do into a Colorado DMV office, claim I am an Illegal Ukrainian immigrant and get a second drivers license based off my Gas bill?

Not that i would actually do so, but it seems like you could use this for all sorts of fraud....

Can I illegally enter any of the countries that these illegals are from and be given welfare, a driver’s license, free housing, schooling, etc? Absolutely NOT. I’d be put in jail quickly be deported. The same should happen to all of these illegals. I’m totally sick of this crap!

Driver licenses are about government fees too, but I see your point. Liberals wang reinforcements in CO just in case a few of the sheeple should ever “catch on.”
