Colorado Starts Issuing Driver's Licenses To Undocumented Migrants [In Your Face STATE Lawlessness!]
Guardian (UK) ^ | August 1, 2014

Colorado Starts Issuing Driver's Licenses To Undocumented Migrants Thousands will be eligible for state licenses and ID cards available to immigrants regardless of their legal status

1 August 2014 07 Adriana Gaytan, center, who came to Colorado in 1997 from Mexico, will get a driver’s license when Colorado begins its rollout. Photograph: Brennan Linsley/AP Colorado will begin issuing driver’s licenses and identification cards to immigrants on 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.

A nationwide rumor needs to be started and spread that the states are only doing all this stuff, and signing them up for benefits it to make it easier to find and deport the illegals.

The way things are "progressing," illegals probably don't even need to have auto/liability insurance. Insisting that they do would be "racist!"

If they plow into your car, they can sue you to fix theirs. And pay for their little "hurt" backs.

Great! I think I'll make a detour and fly in to Denver, rent a Mailbox or something, and get a shiny new DL to show off.

After all, what are they going to do? Refuse? Can't wait to see THAT headline:

"Colorado gives Licenses to Illegal Aliens, but not US Citizens!"

Yep. And they will get preference over you for SS benefits with illegals hired as SS staff. Sucker.

We have now entered “The Era of State Lawlessness”

How the States and the Nation have changed during these past 10 years! We have met the enemy and it is us. We were asleep while the community organizers were at work.

But if they're "undocumented migrants" rather than illegal aliens, the relevant status can't be "legal status" but must instead be documentation status.

Ah, it ain't easy bein' P.C.

I can't tell you that. But I can tell you that when I applied for a Tennessee license in the mid 1990s, my U.S. Passport and International Driver's License wasn't good enough identification for them. They demanded to see my Social Security card as well.

Meanwhile, the same DL center was crowded with south of the border types who were served in Spanish and issued licenses with just a passport from Honduras or Mexico or El Salvador or wherever.

They can’t speak English so they have no idea what the signs say and then they get out of their unregistered cars and run when they get in an accident because they don’t know any better. Great.

So, do the illegals have to take the written exam and drive around the block with an instructor, or is it just flat-out issued like an ID?

The answer is simple:
A Ballot Initiative:

All US Citizens and Legal Residents of Colorado, that Can Not be Classified in any way as a Public Employee, Shall be entitled to fair and just compensation from the Public Employees of Colorado, andor Any Political Subdivision thereof, as a Whole, Liability to be shared as Follows:
Public Servants SHALL be Personally Responsible for 50% of ALL DAMAGES.
Public Employees SHALL be Responsible for 50% of ALL DAMAGES.
All Compensation Shall be Withheld from Their respective Salaries and PENSIONS, for Any and ALL Damages sustained as a result of a Person who ENTERED, or REMAINS in the United States without Proper and Legal Documentation.

Sounds like GAME OVER to me.

It's just as bad in Santa Clara County, California. When you go into the DMV, you can easily see the people taking the written exam -while being coached by one or more others as to what the proper answers are, not that the DMV employees care.

Then you get to go outside and see all the Vietnamese packed in five to a car who can't read the traffic signs and often drive the wrong way on a one-way street.

That was several years ago, and now that Moonbeam Brown has declared a statewide welcome for the "Undocumented" people (*cough* illegal aliens *cough*) I don't imagine it will be getting much better anytime soon.

We are already there. To open an account, or to cash a check -even a paycheck, you have to have two forms of photo ID, one of which is allowed to be a "Driver's License".

Citibank even adds on a five-dollar (as of ten years ago -it could be even more now) service charge to cash a check if you do not have an account with them. Even if the check is a paycheck from an employer's Citibank account.

From what I could observe at the DL office in Jackson, Tennessee, nobody was going out to take driving tests and it didn't look like anybody was taking written exams either. I was there for almost two hours before it was my turn to be called because there were so many amigos packing the place.

It is possible that they were showing licenses from their home country, but all I personally saw were passports. Even conceding that they had licenses from their home countries, my International Driver's License had been issued by Japan, a first world country where I was residing at the time.

I couldn't even get equal treatment as probable illegal aliens.

That's just great. I held a CO driver's license from '74 to '02 and gave it up for two years while living in another state. When I came back to CO (with a valid license from the other state) they demanded to see my birth certificate to get a new CO license.

It's about time to decorate some Denver lamp posts.

Damn, that’s a revolting development. I’m with the guy who’s ready to go south and sneak back in here with a deep tan and learn to say ‘No habla Squat’ with a Spanish/Finnish/German accent...
