  • Could Three Strikes case help Governor Make up ground with Latinos?

    Could the Governor's loose lips spring a man from prison? The National Latino Congreso held in Los Angeles last week may have laid out a blueprint for how Arnold Schwarzenegger could recoup some of his lost ground with Latino voters. The day before conference officials disinvited the Governor from giving a speech at the conference because of racially questionable comments, Congreso participants unanimously approved a resolution calling on Schwarzenegger to free a Latino prisoner imprisoned under California's three-strikes law for cheating on a Department of Motor Vehicles exam. The city of Richmond and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors have...

    Legislation to allow illegal immigrants in California apply for driver's licenses was resurrected Monday in a weakened version that's contingent on federal funding. Senate Bill 1162 by Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, was approved by Democrats in the Assembly on a 42-34 vote, a week after Democrats derailed its precursor, fearing a voter backlash in November. The emotionally charged measure still requires confirmation by the state Senate, which passed an earlier version, SB 1160. It also faces a likely veto by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who vetoed similar legislation last year. Unlike SB 1160, the amended legislation does not require state...

    SACRAMENTO -- Sen. Gil Cedillo said Friday that he has not given up on his eighth attempt to enact legislation that would let illegal immigrants get driver's licenses, even though his latest bill is bottled up in committee with time running out on lawmakers' 2006 session. "There are a myriad of ways to do this," the Los Angeles Democrat said in an interview. "We're going to find one of them to do it." Cedillo has been trying for eight years to overturn 1993 legislation that prohibits the state from issuing licenses to drivers who cannot prove they're in the country...

    SACRAMENTO – Sen. Gil Cedillo's maneuvering to broaden the appeal of his ongoing campaign to grant undocumented immigrants the legal right to drive may cost him traditional allies. The Senate Transportation Committee yesterday approved his bill on a 7-3 vote amid the backdrop of recent massive immigrant rights rallies and a planned boycott of stores and jobs May 1. The bill, SB 1160, is designed to give illegal immigrants the opportunity to apply for a clearly distinguishable document that could only be used as a certificate to drive – not for identification. The legislation also includes provisions that would bring...

    Illegal immigrants seeking a California driver's license under new legislation would face tougher background checks than most U.S. citizens, including screening by federal anti-terrorism authorities and the required submission of fingerprints, bill sponsors said Saturday. The Immigrant Responsibility and Security Act, which lawmakers approved in the final hours of the legislative session Friday, would require background checks by the state Department of Justice, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Doctors, lawyers and teachers undergo similar scrutiny during licensing, said the bill's author, Sen. Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles). Criminal records would disqualify applicants for a license. "This would...

    The John and Ken Show (KFI 64.0 am, Los Angeles) | truthkeeper
    Well guys, "One Bill Gil" Cedillo snuck this monstrosity in as an attachment to some bill the state senate just HAD to pass. (The official story, anyway.) John and Ken just announced that it passed 21 - 14 moments ago, despite an impassioned, intelligent plea against it by Tom McClintock. The bill now moves on the entire assembly, where it is also expected to pass. So it looks like Arnold will have a bill to either sign or veto after all. Once more into the breach.

By Aurelio Rojas -- Bee Capitol BureauPublished 2:15 am PDT Thursday, July 29, 2004Buried in the 9/11 commission's report is a recommendation that the federal government should standardize identification documents issued by states, including driver's licenses.

    Last year, liberals who dominate the state Legislature passed a bill giving driver's licenses to illegal aliens. This bill was signed into law by then Gov. Gray Davis, who was facing a recall election. The public was outraged. Republican candidates for governor promised to roll back the illegal driver's license bill if one of them were to be elected governor. In the wake of the recall election, the new governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, made it clear that he intended to live up to his campaign pledge. Shell-shocked by the recall election results, and a gathering referendum drive to repeal the law,...

    Los Angeles Daily News ^ | July 05, 2004 | Rep. Elton Gallegly, R-Thousand Oaks
    GOV. Arnold Schwarzenegger has made progress on several fronts in an effort to put California on the road to recovery. But there's a roadblock at the very beginning, and until it's removed, California's recovery cannot move forward. Illegal immigration, more than any other single factor, is crippling major segments of California's economy, from health care to higher education to jobs. That's why, regardless of the security concerns -- and there are many -- Schwarzenegger should not sign any bill granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. This is not a Republican vs. Democrat issue. Exit polls conducted during last year's recall...

    SACRAMENTO - Legislation that would allow an estimated 2 million illegal immigrants to get California driver's licenses was shelved temporarily Monday by a Senate committee, significantly reducing the amount of time to enact it this year. The measure by Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, was placed on the Senate Appropriations Committee's suspense file, a standard procedure for bills projected to cost the state more than $150,000. The committee is tentatively scheduled to vote on suspense file bills Aug. 13, and the Legislature is scheduled to adjourn its 2004 session on Aug. 31. "It certainly shortens the window of opportunity to...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - A bill allowing an estimated 2 million illegal immigrant drivers in California to get legal driver's licenses cleared a Senate committee Tuesday, which was the bill's first hurdle in the Legislature. The latest attempt to make illegal immigrants eligible for the licenses, the bill would require applicants who cannot prove legal residency in California to be fingerprinted, undergo background checks and get adult sponsors. Illegal immigrants would pay $146 for a license to cover extra costs of guaranteeing that licenses aren't used as a tool for terrorists to move freely in California. Senate Transportation Committee Democrats favored...

    WASHINGTON (January 28, 2003) -- "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." These are the words of a top official in Mexico's foreign ministry, describing his government's piecemeal approach to securing an amnesty for the 3 to 5 million Mexican illegal aliens in the United States, a strategy adopted in the wake of the new security environment in the U.S. after 9/11. The foremost tool in this strategy is the "matricula consular," or consular registration card, that Mexico hopes will be accepted by governments and businesses across the United States, giving illegal aliens legitimate ID to...

Look for yourself. they protested outide Schwarzneggers' santa monica office, which was the 3rd stop in their caravan. Other stops included Macarthur Park, the federal building and ending with a rally in Koeatown.

    SACRAMENTO – Locked in delicate negotiations, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and state Sen. Gil Cedillo have struggled to narrow their differences over divisive legislation to give illegal immigrants the right to have driver licenses. Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, and the governor's negotiating team are pondering background checks, including requiring applicants to submit a full set of fingerprints, at least two identification documents and proof of address. In addition, the two sides are looking at withholding licenses from illegal immigrants who have criminal records. People from countries considered to be state sponsors of terrorism, such as Iran, Sudan and Syria, also would be...

    The man who is leading the fight with Schwarzenegger to give licenses to illegal aliens, State Senator Gil Cedillo, is using Catholic churches to rally his supporters. Cedillo and his group are selective about who attends these meetings on Catholic church property. Some bishops imply/promote the falsehood that 'charity to the poor' requires undermining our borders and sacrificing our sovereignty. This couldnt be further from the truth; and as a lifelong Catholic, I don't appreciate misguided clergy promoting socialist and leftist policies and politicians on church property. The following outlines Cedillo's voting record. His beliefs are 100% contrary to all...
