    His bill will allow those convicted of DUIs and that have their licenses pulled, to drive. Legal immigrants may buy insurance, but ILLEGAL immigrants do not. Why should they? Once they’ve caused an accident while driving drunk, they just run away from the scene. What I want to know is are there any Hispanic politicians in California who are loyal Americans, supporters of the laws they swore to uphold, and don’t think that they are Mexicans on a mission from God to reconquer the state for Mexico?


    Calif. bill would protect unlicensed drivers from arrest

    The legislation by Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, would change police procedures at drunken-driving checkpoints, prohibiting officers from arresting drivers and immediately impounding their cars if their only offense is not having a license.

    Supporters say the bill, AB353, would impose a consistent policy statewide - some agencies confiscate unlicensed drivers' cars now, and some do not - while keeping DUI checkpoints from being turned into traps for otherwise law-abiding illegal immigrants who cannot obtain licenses.

    "In most parts of California, you basically have to have a car," said Mark Silverman, director of immigration policy at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center. "You have to be able to drive to survive, to get anywhere. Because of that, the truth is, immigrant drivers without licenses will be driving anyway because of the necessity. The towing of cars will not stop people from driving."

    Oh please!

    Supporters say the bill, AB353, would impose a consistent policy statewide - some agencies confiscate unlicensed drivers' cars now, and some do not - while keeping DUI checkpoints from being turned into traps for otherwise law-abiding illegal immigrants who cannot obtain licenses.

    Anyone see an issue with this?

    Rosenberg said the solution isn't to allow illegal immigrants to drive without licenses, but to make it legal for them to take the proper tests and get licenses.

    Thank you Sanctuary San Fransisco, home to Pelosi!

    barf!

    Yea and they keep voting for her. Don't understand the mentality of Northern California residents. And I don't think any Hispanic representative in Calif. has the American people at heart in anything they do.

    It is the responsibility of the Federal Government to secure our borders and enforce immigration policy.

    California countries spent a considerable amount of dollars on the arrest, detention, and court process of foreign nationals who have entered our state illegally. The state of CA houses many foreign nationals in our prisons at considerable cost to the taxpayers.

    Why hasn't the Congress acted and passed comprehensive immigration reform?

    As long as foreign nationals reside in our state, it makes no sense to not allow them to secure CDL's and require that they have insurance, or post a bond, as required by law.

    Penalties for driving w/o a CDL can be changed, so that a citation for driving w/o a license becomes a misdemeanor. Cars driven by unlicensed drivers could also be sold as a public nuisance. All of which might adversly effect all of us legally residing here, for simply forgetting our wallet.

    The costs and dangers associated with illegal immigration are great, so why isn't the Congress doing something? Have many days has the current Congress been on vacation?

    Why doesn't CA just give every illegal a house, car, and job, all on the taxpayer's dime?

    And liberals wonder why people say they're soft on crime. :cool:

    Pretty pathetic. So much for equal protection, and rule of law. California is losing it fast.
