The National Immigration Law Center has filed legal challenges over the issue in Arizona and Michigan. But, even in states like Connecticut, officials aren't just giving away licenses.

I;m sorry, Barak Obama and immigration are two issues that cannot be discussed in my opinion without disgust .

We are living in the United States of Hypocracy because our various government officials on the federal, state, and local levels cannot get their act together. One side says let everybody in who wants to jump the line and tromple those who bother to come in legally. The other side says to spend $18 billion a year on immigration enforcement.
Unfortunately, we are doing both.

Illegal immigrants will drive, with or without a license. Unlicensed drivers on the road are a danger to themselves and others, so it's only common sense to require them to pass a driving test and get a license. Jan Brewer and her wingnut buddies are disingenuous: they know very well the relevant federal laws are not optional.

noted. Either do things legally or get out! We don't want people here that will add to the numbers of people with no regard for the law!

I agree with you, Beth S.! We need to stop coddling illegal immigrants (read: criminals) and send them home. I'm sorry if their home countries suck, but we are losing jobs and tax money to them. Let's look after people who are in this country legitimately first!

This is a distasteful situation [that illegal immigrant can get license]. Make them pay double the insurance premimum or be deported back to the country of origin.

There is a very good reason to give these people a license. Because then they must have insurance. At least in mast states. That makes it best for all of us.

This may sound crazy but better to send them back where they came from
