"Backers say the law will make for safer roadways because it will force undocumented immigrants to learn state highway safety laws, pass a driving test, secure insurance for their vehicles and basically, pay to use the state’s roadways. Opponents say that driving is a privilege that should only belong to citizens."
"Learn state highway safety laws" Like they learned English? A license is just a get out of jail card. This does not make them have insurance either. Once their license is suspended they will keep driving any way.
Alot of people in NV will die because of this. Alcoholism runs rampant in the Hispanic community.
"Another 2010 report by the NHTSA,“Special Report on Race/Ethnicity and Impaired Driving,” found that among other groups, Hispanics are “less likely” to believe that driving while intoxicated is a “safety problem” or that they will be caught in the act."

Senate Considers PASS ID - A Bill That Would Provide Driver's Licenses to
Illegal Aliens & Repeal 9/11 Commission Recommendation Regarding Secure IDs
Last week, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security held a hearing on PASS
ID (S.1261). This legislation would repeal and weaken many security
standards set forth by the REAL ID Act of 2005.(See FAIR's Legislative

The REAL ID Act was passed after the 9/11 Commission recommended improved
security standards in the issuance of driver's licenses and identification.
REAL ID establishes standards for states to follow when issuing secure
identification documents. Just six months away from the deadline for all 50
states to achieve material compliance under REAL ID, Sen. Daniel Akaka's
(D-HI) PASS ID legislation essentially brings us back to pre-9/11 standards,
putting all U.S. citizens at risk.(Id.).
Homeland Security Committee Ranking Member Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and
former Assistant Secretary for Policy at the Department of Homeland Security
Stewart Baker both expressed concern over the specific language in PASS ID
which states that "no person shall be denied boarding a commercial aircraft
solely on the basis of failure to present a driver's license or
identification card issued pursuant to [PASS ID]." (See FAIR's Changes Pass
ID Would Make to REAL ID). Currently, the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA) shows discretion when a passenger is without
identification documents by performing additional screening in order to
determine whether or not to allow the passenger to board a commercial
