    People who are willing to break our immigration laws are more likely to break driving laws. Look at the stats for people who are willing to drive on a suspended license and fatal accidents.

    Could someone please teach them that its OK to turn right at a red light AFTER a FULL stop and there is NO oncoming traffic. Not stop then pull out as fast as you can yo get in front of someone or roll through and pull out as fast as you can??

    I so agree with Larry and aren't church groups suppose to abide by the law?

    No church groups are not bound by man's laws when it comes to humanatarian efforts. Meaning yes they should abide by laws but God's law supercedes man's. If churches were to abide by government law it'd be perfectly acceptable to watch Rated X films, hang out in strip clubs, etc. They abide by God's laws first and the church isn't smuggling people in it's helping them establish themselves.

    Nunya, NO we are bound by Constitutional law and thank goodness for that! History has proven that Christians have shown their propensity for ugly business if not held in check.

    Nunya. Gods law says NOTHiNG about assisting people who are here illegally obtain drivers licenses or whatever else they are doing. I would much rather have this church work to improve the conditions in these other countries so that our borders will not be overrun.

    AB 852 signed into law by Governor Brown allows illegal immigrants to have drivers' license. This is one of many that Governor Brown has implemented to help immigration.

    Pedro .. Are you my next four neighbor with at least four families in s single family home with a constantly barking chichiua that animal control can't talk yo anymore because that would be harassment ? Maybe if our politicians had to deal with this they would re think their positions.

    Short sighted conservatives prefer all of the undocumented immigrant drivers be unlicensed to ensure they also have no clue to rules of the road.

    Jimbo. Clancy is correct. They broke the law coming here and they will break others as well. It is not short sided to control our borders and end illegal immigration. The monetary costs to society are huge to support these folks and they just shouldn't be here.

    Clancy. You know the end justifies the means. Liberals like illegal immigrants because that would be another group that relies on government handouts and and encourage them to vote democrat. I would imagine that some of the liberals are somewhat conflicted because the more people sucking at the government trough, the fewer benefits are available for them to receive. So sad.

    So.. They came here illegally and they are driving around illegally how is that OK? I guess you liberals don't want any laws enforced or just the ones that are you like should be enforced?

    Thank you Larry . I guess when Jimbo or one of his family members is hurt or killed by one of these people or he had to live next to a house full of immigrants that can't be harassed he will change his mind
