    See: Immigrants without legal status sue for Georgia driver’s licenses


    ”A group of immigrants who are living in Georgia without legal status filed suit against Georgia’s Department of Driver Services in federal court Monday, accusing the state agency of violating their constitutional rights by denying them driver’s licenses."

    Now this is very special, “…violating their constitutional rights by denying them driver’s licenses.”

    The fact is, each state has exclusive authority to create its own “privileges” which are exclusively for citizens of their own state. And driver’s licenses just happen to be one of those “privileges”.

    It should also be noted that the 14th Amendment, by its very language, confirms each State may make distinctions between “citizens” and “persons” when regulating and enforcing its laws!


    The 14th Amendment declares that “citizens” of the United States are guaranteed the “privileges or immunities” offered by the state in which they are located. But those who are not “citizens of the united States” and referred to as “persons“ (which would include those who have entered a State or the United States illegally), are not entitled to the “privileges or immunities“ which a state has created for its “citizens“.


    The 14th Amendment only requires that “persons” may not be deprived of life, liberty, or property without the benefit of the state’s codified due process of law being applied to them equally, as it is applied to all other “persons” within the state in question.

    The lawsuit contends that because the federal government has given them work permits and Social Security numbers, they are legal residents. Georgia has decided to rejected this absurdity and will not issue driver’s licenses to illegal entrants living in their State.

    This same crap is happening in other States around the country, e.g., see: Illegal immigrants sue Oregon over ballot measure denying licenses

    November 30, 2015

    ”A group of illegal immigrants is suing the state of Oregon to overturn a voter-approved initiative that denied them driver’s licenses.”


    And one of the mind numbing arguments these illegals entrants from Mexico and Central America are giving is, it makes it harder for them to take jobs away from American citizens without a driver’s license.


    While millions and millions of America Citizens have been squeezed out of jobs by illegal entrants who work off the books, below the going wage and do not pay taxes on their earned wages, they have the audacity to now demand driver’s licenses so they can take more good paying jobs away from American citizens in the construction trades.

    Although I am a card-carrying member of the Great Right Wing Conspiracy, I think it is stupid for States to deny driver's licenses to ANYONE LIVING WITHIN THEIR BORDERS.

    The fact that they are even applying means that they are residing there, have a car, AND ARE DRIVING ON THE STATE'S ROADS. Without a license they cannot get liability insurance - WHICH IS FOR THE BENEFIT OF EVERYONE ELSE IN THE STATE! Denying them drivers' licenses is simply stupid.

    If the states don't want these illegals in their state, they need to take that up with the Feds. But the best policy is to have everyone living and driving in the state registered and insured.

    I have spoken.

    I wonder why the RWNJ racists are so damn dumb that they actually believe a driver's license in a "privilege" and that it somehow takes jobs away from citizens.

    I'll bet you can't figure out the biggest and best reason to push for driver's licenses for illegals. Go ahead. Try to figure it out.

    Next they'll tell us illegals don't pay the exact same taxes citizen do. Oh wait - ^^ some people still believe that. Illegals do pay taxes. The difference is, they get nothing in return.

    As for jobs, if we educated Americans, companies would not go out of the country for talent. Or do you actually believe Americans want to pick watermelons for less than minimum wage?

    Educate yourself about what happened in Alabama.

    Dear Luddly, sixty-two percent of households headed by illegal immigrants are receiving some form of public assistance (welfare, housing, food stamps), and that doesn't include FREE PUBLIC EDUCATION for their kids, the addition of which would bring that total up to approximately 90%. Nor does it include the fact that if an "Illegal" is injured, s/he will be brought to an American hospital, which is forbidden by law to deny them treatment.

    "...they get nothing in return..."

    You are clueless.

    Fuck them. Fine their employer, take their children out of school and have their landlords do e-verify. That would help end this entitled bullshit.

    Donald Trump on board with getting illegals their driver’s licenses!

    Under Trump’s plan, after illegals entrants are deported to their own country, they can apply to their local DMV for their driver’s license! Problem solved.

    Court has already nixed driver's licenses to illegal entrants

    This crap has already been litigated and these illegals have been kicked out of court!

    See: Lawsuit challenging Nebraska's denial of driver's licenses to immigrants thrown out

    February 12, 2014


    U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp said she dismissed the case because Saldana’s lawyers didn’t provide sufficient evidence showing that the DMV has not consistently followed its policies when issuing licenses to individuals granted deferred action, as Saldana alleged.


    The judge dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning it can’t be brought back to the court.”


    Who is paying for these lawsuits?

    Yeah..and they then use those licenses as ID to vote, thereby skewing and corrupting the system...Care to guess which party they vote for?
    Let them drive with no license..then catch and deport as undesirable aliens..no more catch and release.
    We're going to start fixing this problem soon, though.

    That may be, but there is no Constitutional right to drive, so I fail to see how their lawsuit has any merit. Additionally, the people who filed it should now be picked up and deported since they are on record as being here illegally.
