Three States Offer Driver's Licenses To Illegal Aliens
Greetings to All:
This is the kind of STUPIDITY right here that says the USA 'is' most definitely worthy of utter destruction off the face of the earth.
Three States Offer Driver Licenses To Illegal Immigrants & Terrorists?
Illegal immigrants are scrambling to gain identification documents since the State of Arizona has implemented Illegal Immigration legislation. As illegals have begun to flee Arizona for fear of being caught, they have set their sights on three specific states that allow them to get licenses without proof of citizenship or residency.
Those three states are: Washington, New Mexico and Utah.
Washington State and New Mexico have been magnet states for fraudulent document brokers, human traffickers and alien smugglers for years according to Brian Zimmer, president of the Coalition for a Secure Driver's License. The group is a nonprofit research group in Washington D.C.. Officials in New Mexico deny the claim. While Republican lawmakers, in those states, have pushed for tighter laws in recent years they have been thwarted by Democrats. The State of Utah, meanwhile, allows illegals to carry driving privileges only. Illegals may not use the IDs to board an airplane, get employment or even buy alcohol. Thus it appears to be a less contentious issue in Utah.
An Associated Press analysis of data from these three states show that there has been a 60% increase in licenses issued to illegal immigrants, in the 10 weeks immediately following Arizona's Immigration Legislation.
Some other results of the AP analysis:There have also been fraud cases reported. Two recent incidents involved a man from Illinois who drove two Polish Immigrants from Chicago to Albuquerque, New Mexico in a scheme to charge them $1,000 each to obtain a legal drivers license. In Washington State, a current and former employee of that state's Licensing Department were arrested for the sale of identification documents to illegals.
It seems that these three states, with their easy access to documentation, could become a mecca for terrorists and criminals. Imagine, in New Mexico, clerks at the Motor Vehicle Division are not permitted to ask someone if they are in the country legally or where they even moved from. There is no way to distinguish between a license issued to a legal immigrant with a visa versus a migrant working the fields and in the country illegally. Supporters of these loose regulations, like Washington state immigrant advocate David Ayala, argues that it is better for drivers to be licensed from a public safety point of view. Ayala is the organizing director of OneAmerica and feels that people with licenses have a more normal life. They can cash a check, rent an apartment and even have insurance for their vehicle. (More)
