Republicans in the House and the Senate are introducing legislation that would block federal funds from states that allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses -- the latest move in an escalating fight over “sanctuary” laws.

The Stop Greenlighting Driver Licenses for Illegal Immigrants Act would block funds to sanctuary states -- which limit local cooperation with federal immigration authorities -- and those that give licenses to illegal immigrants. Specifically, it would halt Justice Department (DOJ) grants, in particular those awarded under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, which is a top source of federal criminal justice funding for states.

The bicameral legislation comes amid a growing fight over sanctuary legislation. The Trump administration has been attempting to highlight attention to the dangers of the policy and has been shining light on cases whereby illegal immigrants have killed Americans.

“The United States of America should be a sanctuary for law-abiding Americans, not criminal aliens,” Trump said at his State of the Union address last week. Read more:


Republicans introduce bill to pull funds from states that give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants

Of course this is common sense legislation, but as we all know, Democrats lack that gift. They would rather see American business people locked up behind bars because their claim is those employers attract illegals to our country, but making them comfortable by issuing drivers licenses so they can get drunk and kill Americans is not luring them in.

With the Democrat House, it stands no chance of passing. But if there is a turnover in leadership after next election, I do hope Republicans don't let this bill remain defeated as they did with Kate's Law never to bring it up again. We'll see.

What does a Drivers License have to do with immigration?

It just makes sure drivers have the proper skills and training?

All you Republicans keep going on about states' rights. Well the issuance of drivers licenses is a state issue, and the feds can't say dick about it.
Au contraire. Immigration law is the venue of the federal government. State law does not supersede it.

The right to drive on our roadways funded by our taxpaying CITIZENS is a privileged reserved for real Americans. Using a drivers license as wetback bait in LefTard run shitholes should be prohibited. I thought you wanted us to stop incentivizing the human cockroaches?

It raises the status of illegals closer to that of citizens.
No it doesn’t

It just shows they have the skills and training to drive a car.
They are horrible drivers.
So are white teenage boys but they still get licenses.
Yes...let’s have more horrible drivers.

Trump tried this before, the cities and states sued, and the Administration lost every case.
That doesn't change the fact that people like me think it's wrong. Wow, just think, according to the rwingnutjobs, I am a Commie Socialist Bastard. So they aren't going to read what I am typing. They'll hear something else.

I don't believe that an illegal should be able to get a drivers license, get auto insurance or be able to register a vehicle. We need to make them feel uncomfortable as we can. Same goes for leasing or renting them housing. If they want to be here, do it legally and THEN and only then should be we afford them things like drivers licenses.

No, that's not the point. The point is a Driver's License is used to show citizenship in a state on voting day. They're not supposed to have driver's license as it has been for a century
