Try moving to a different state and see the documentation that is required to obtain a drivers license. Some states required certified or notarized copies as well. And yet the so called "undocumented" immigrant does not have to produce documentation period. How is this not discrimination against law abiding legal US citizens or residents?

And these ILLEGAL aliens can take the time to obtain a drivers license which is a process how come they cannot go through the process of becoming a legal resident or citizen?

We can't be the place of everyone in the worlds dreams or you will become our nightmare. You will simply turn us into the very place you flee from. That is why we have limitations on immigration. That is why most countries have limitation and laws on immigration. Just because it is there does not mean it is yours.

Immigrants can get a driver's license in all 50 states. I know many immigrants as well as visitors that have gotten them. It is illegal aliens because of the fact they are not legal residents of the U.S. and therefore not legal residents of any state that are demanding driver's licenses. Since giving licenses to illegal aliens violates federal law all federal transportation subsidies should be withheld from any state that provides licenses to illegal aliens.

We're trying to move forward by insisting that our country enforce our laws which protects its citizens. Illegal aliens steal jobs and depress wages, overwhelm our infrastructure, overcrowd our country and many have no respect for our culture and our laws. The only upside goes to the employers who exploit them and the Democrats who have no problem giving them freebies in exchange for votes. There is no real reason we should want them here and that means they have no good reason to have a drivers license.

These leeching criminals seem to think they are entitled to things, when they are Not. We should give nothing to people who are committing a crime just by being here, it's time their welfare and food stamps were cut off. At least most of them would self deport after that, those who choose to remain need to be deported by force. These parasites hsve burdened the taxpayers long enough, as for the politicians who put leeching criminals over real Americans they can kiss their jobs goodbye in November.

A legal US caught driving without a drivers license can get fined, jailed, points on their actual license, increased insurance premiums and/or their car confiscated/impounded.

An ILLEGAL alien gets caught driving without a license they get an application.

The ILLEGALS have nothing at stake. They don't have worry about insurance premiums or points on their license. They can almost "drive" with impunity because they have no official record & privilege to jeopardize. This is exactly why many ILLEGALS don't give two craps about citizenship.

You may call him/her a goober, but he or she is correct! My daughter's purse was stolen and reported to police. She had a copy of the police report when she went to MVD. She was required to have certified birth certificate and social security card, in order to obtain a replacement drivers license. Really?!?! I told her she should have walked in and said " No speaka English" and she would have been given a drivers license, no questions or requirements. Before anyone starts bashing calling me a racist, we are Hispanic.
