Okay I’m on the fence here. If you’re here illegally then everything you’ve done since you got here is illegal. You have no business here and certainly should not get any benefits. So basically, you have been stealing the entire time and the US gets zero for that effort. Having said that, if you have a license, you are no longer invisible and easier to find. Does that mean you must pay taxes and buy insurance? Let’s face it, we are doing the ”if you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em” dance every day. Those responsible for such things have obviously dropped the ball on this issue and it aint gonna go away no matter what we do. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to have a trail and possibly get a return from these folks? Just sayin.
Mr Brooks how can you be on the fence. Just because you have a drivers license does not mean you will get insurance. their are people that drive now that have a drivers license that do not have insurance. this is why us drivers that obey the laws and have insurance have to pay extra for california uninsured motorist insurance. Just a thought.
RM: Non-citizens will never be allowed to vote legally in the US, which means they never will be allowed to register to vote. And if it's not legal, they won't do it, even if they could. You think differently? Non-citizen voting in the US is vanishingly rare. That's why the Republican "cure" for this "problem" is a hoax designed to mask disenfranchisement of groups that tend to be Democratic. It's a national scandal and disgrace. If I hadn't left the Republican Party in in 1990, I would leave it in disgust over this issue now.
Well rlw895 if that is the case how come we can not ask someone that is voting to show an ID to prove that they are the person they say they are. all you do is give your name and the people working at the polling place checks to see if the name you give is on the list. So what is so wrong about asking to show an id to prove who you are if you look like your under 21 and want to buy alcohol you have to show an ID. You may not think people vote illegally but they do. And if you are in this country illegally way should you have the same rights as those of us that are here legally.
RM: Buying alcohol is not a fundamental right like voting. Neither is driving a motor vehicle. So the comparison is not apt. What kind of ID should a citizen be required to provide in order to exercise a fundamental right? That's the question. If the government issued every citizen a voter ID card for free, and had case workers to be sure the right people got them, at no inconvenience to the citizen, I would be fine with that. How about you? Other forms of ID might also be acceptable at the polls, but if a citizen doesn't want or doesn't have any of them, the voter ID card is all he/she needs. If you don't agree, explain why not.
