  • Illegal immigrants sue Oregon over ballot measure denying licenses

    A group of illegal immigrants is suing the state of Oregon to overturn a voter-approved initiative that denied them driver's licenses. The lawsuit, brought by five illegal immigrants, comes after Oregonians passed Measure 88 last year with a strong two-thirds majority. Thirty-five of Oregon's 36 counties voted against licenses for undocumented residents, as did every congressional district in the state, most of which are represented by Democrats. But the lawsuit alleges Measure 88 is unconstitutional because it "arbitrarily" denies driving privileges based on membership in a "disfavored minority group." It alleges Oregon voters were motivated by "animus toward persons from...

    (AP) - A House panel is expected to discuss efforts to repeal a New Mexico law that allows immigrants suspected of being in the country illegally to obtain driver's licenses. The House Safety and Civil Affairs Committee is scheduled Thursday to discuss two bills aimed at revamping the state driver's licenses laws. One proposal by Rep. Paul Pacheco of Albuquerque calls for creating a "two-tier" driver's license system. But Marcela Diaz, executive director of the Santa Fe-based Somos Un Pueblo Unido, says that would only create "scarlet-letter" licenses from immigrants. Republican Gov. Susana Martinez has tried repeatedly to have the...

    Pencils moved quickly as roughly 20 undocumented immigrants raced to identify eight road signs drawn on a white board during a driver education class held at the Graton Day Labor Center earlier this week. While most were familiar with the signs warning of merging lanes or forbidding U-turns, the 10 questions that class instructor Jo Anne Cohn read out loud stumped them. “This is difficult for a lot of people,” Cohn said in Spanish to her students. She encouraged them to continue studying to avoid failing the test and having to go back to the Department of Motor Vehicles. “If...

    California Division of Motor Vehicles is preparing for roughly 1.4 million new driver’s license applicants after Jan. 1. That’s when Assembly Bill 60, or the Safe and Responsible Drivers Act, goes into effect. FOX40 spoke with a Maria Rodriguez, an undocumented immigrant living in West Sacramento who plans to apply for a license under the new law. “It’s the best thing that could have happened to us in California. We’ve been waiting for it for many, many years,” Rodriguez said. The DMV is encouraging all eligible applicants to start preparing for their drivers tests early. When Nevada adopted a similar...

    Eufracia Mora and her husband run a commercial and residential painting business, and often have to drive from two to three hours for a job. The parents of two small children ride the whole way unlicensed and on edge. "I'm always nervous every time I get in the car," Mora said, "Every day I drive for work, or I drive the kids to school, I'm worried I'll see a police car." Mora is undocumented and cannot legally obtain a driver's license. She joined nearly 300 people Wednesday night for a forum on immigration issues largely focused on whether driver's licenses...

    Graciela Iniguez guesses she has spent $12,000 on traffic tickets and vehicle impound fees since she started driving 20 years ago. As an undocumented immigrant from Jalisco, Mexico, Iniguez drives without a license. But that's soon to change. Starting Jan. 1, California residents who can't prove they are in United States legally will be allowed to obtain driver's licenses under Assembly Bill 60, which Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law last year. "This law is going to benefit us so much," she said. "Thank God, now we won't have to be afraid to drive." "Unfortunately, it's not a privilege to...

    A new poll shows likely New Mexico voters still oppose an 11-year-old state law that allows immigrants who are in the country illegally to obtain driver's licenses. The Albuquerque Journal reports three-fourths of the likely voters surveyed opposed the law, echoing findings of similar Journal polls.

    TheTownCrier had a disagreement with a radio host yesterday. His guest was a state representative, a republican, who has introduced a bill to give illegal aliens drivers license. Their conversation was polite with no objection to the bill by the host. I commented to the host that the lawmaker should have been given some challenge about this...why doesn't the lawmaker promote existing immigration law, instead of rewarding illegal behavior. The host, usually a fair chap, decided to get ALL righteous and indignant, informing me how stupid I was...that a mere state rep can't do anything about federal law. BALDERDASH! The...

    Columbus Dispatch ^ | Nov. 2, 2009 | Stephanie Czekalinski
    News that the state will cancel the car registrations of possibly thousands of undocumented immigrants has caused panic and created rumors among those living in central Ohio. Before Aug. 24, a loophole in the state Bureau of Motor Vehicle's policy allowed illegal immigrants to register cars in their names by using a power-of-attorney form, even if they didn't have a driver's license. The Ohio Department of Public Safety closed the loophole after delaying a crackdown on possibly fraudulent registrations for more than a year. After The Dispatch reported on the delay, the bureau sent letters at the beginning of October...

    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH ^ | September 13, 2009 | Randy Ludlow
    loophole in an Ohio policy allowed thousands of undocumented immigrants to register cars and get license plates even though many did not have valid Social Security numbers or car insurance. The practice was so widespread that law officers in other states asked the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles why they were seeing so many undocumented immigrants driving cars registered in Ohio. State Public Safety Director Henry Guzman delayed a proposed crackdown for more than a year after he met with people who cater to such immigrants, including people who were profiting from obtaining plates. Guzman initially requested tougher regulations, describing...

    Folks, check your NJ driver license for the expiration date. How often do you look at your license? Like me, probably not very often. The other day, I pulled out my license in preparation for an ID screening (for a potential job opportunity). When I looked at it, I noticed it had expired IN JANUARY. And I NEVER received a notice to renew. Like you, I have the new high-tech license -- which can't be renewed by mail. You'd think they would send a notice to renew. So I'm going down to DMV first thing in the morning to straighten...

I appeared on Fox News with Neil Cavuto Friday discussing our new TV ad exposing Obama's radical plan to give driver's licenses to illegal aliens -- and Neil said the Obama campaign refused to come on the show. No surprise here. They are deathly afraid of this issue. But Cavuto did say that Obama campaign now claims that he does not support driver's licenses for illegals. Cavuto mentioned that Fox's own research showed Obama's claim was simply not true. Of course, it's...

    MEXICO CITY, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- The granting of driver's licenses to illegal immigrants in the United States may be at the center of the immigration issue and broader U.S.-Mexico relations. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., said in a recent presidential debate that granting drivers licenses to illegal immigrants "makes a lot of sense." Yet in Mexico, federal law requires proof of Mexican citizenship or a valid visa for a license, USA Today said Friday. "When it comes to foreigners, we're a little more strict here," said Alejandro Ruiz, a director at the Mexican Automobile Association. Proponents for licensing illegal immigrants...

    ANNAPOLIS - State Republicans said yesterday the Democratic-controlled General Assembly is using cost as an excuse to kill a bill that would keep illegal aliens from getting a Maryland driver's license. "That's something the opponents are running," said Delegate Ronald A. George, Anne Arundel County Republican and sponsor of the House bill. The proposal would have brought Maryland in compliance with the federal Real ID Act, which requires drivers to prove they legally live in the United States before being granted a driver's license. However, the House and Senate appear ready to kill the measure.
  • Proposal calls for fingerprinting immigrants seeking licenses in New Mexico

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) -- The administration of Gov. Bill Richardson is proposing that illegal immigrants who apply for a New Mexico driver's license be fingerprinted for background checks. The move would strengthen border security and ensure that applicants for licenses "are who they say they are," Taxation and Revenue Secretary Jan Goodwin said Wednesday. New Mexico is one of 11 states that don't require driver's license applicants to prove they are legal residents of the United States. The state lets foreign nationals present a passport, a federal tax identification number or a consular identification card to apply for a...

Gardner family's station wagon Gardner, the father of two young children, was killed. Gallegos of Mexico was charged with second-degree murder and driving while impaired. It is uncertain where Gallegos was going at the time, but it is not surprising that he was in North Carolina. The state's requirements to obtain a driver's license are weaker than those of many...
