They're not "undocumented immigrants" or "temporary visitors" they are illegal aliens. Do they really think that giving them a license will reduce the number of fatal accidents or improve the roadways? Do you think they will purchase insurance now?

This is the state where Obama cut his political teeth. Don't say I didn't warn you about making someone from modern day Illinois, manufactured by the Daley political machine, the president.

Secretary of State Jesse White and State Police Director Hiram Grau said Monday in a joint statement that approving the plan not only will make roads safer but also lower insurance rates and strengthen the economy "from the work and buying power of all of our state’s residents."

"Unlicensed, uninsured drivers pose a serious risk to every driver and passenger on Illinois roadways," they said.

New Mexico and Washington passed similar laws that White and Grau said have seen traffic accidents involving uninsured drivers plummet.

In November multiple state politicians -- including Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Senate President John Cullerton, House Republican Leader Tom Cross and former Illinois governors Jim Edgar and James Thompson -- joined to support the bill. Before that 28 Chicago aldermen signed a resolution supporting it.

Earlier in the week, Emanuel said the legislation will help recent immigrants "step out the shadows," and make contributions to the economy.

I totally agree with allowing undocumented immigrants to have a driver license, if i have to pay for insurance, plate sticker and windshield sticker so should everyone else on the road... and if my insurance goes down beause of it even better!

Regardless of the plagiarized post of Honey Slew Slew, the statement about New Mexico and Washington does not seem to include any numbers so a reduction in accidents involving uninsured drivers could simply be due to a dramatic increase in hit and runs. Just because someone has a license does not mean they have insurance or will ever acquire any insurance. And since the Obama administration has, oddly enough, seen an uptick in immigration enforcement, I don't think anyone will be "stepping out of the shadows" anytime soon.

Rose,
They are not "undocumented immigrants" or "temporary visitors". They are illegal aliens. Notice the word illegal? As illegal immigrants, they are exploited, used up and discarded at will. And although your insurance might go down (which is doubtful at best), your taxes and the drain on resources (medical, social security, police, ID theft, etc) has and will continue to rise.

Let's see....

1. They broke our immigration laws by BUSTING INTO this country ILLEGALLY, and nothing bad happened.
2. They have been working, driving, or NOT working and sucking off of our many WELFARE SYSTEMS for YEARS, and nothing bad happened.
3. If they have been driving without a valid license AND insurance, they have gotten away with it. Even if caught, evidently, the PUNISHMENT hasn't deterred THEM or many OTHERS from doing the same. Otherwise, they would go "home", voluntarily.
4. So NOW, some "genius" thinks that if they can get a "valid" drivers license, that they will magically transform themselves into "law-abiding" citizens, and actually buy insurance.

What kind(s) of DOPE have you been smoking lately??

Rosey baby, what makes you think that giving ILLEGAL ALIENS a driver's license will transform these CRIMINALS into being "law-abiding citizens", who will buy insurance??

Answer: it DOESN'T. It only means that the situation will get WORSE before it gets BETTER, because the law-breakers, who have NO BUSINESS BEING HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE, have a "say" as to how our nation is run. It's the tail wagging the dog, instead of the other way around. It means DOOM for this country, being ruled by the LAWLESS, rather than the patriotic, tax-paying, LEGAL types.

Illinois, the same thoughtful state where the teacher's union is suing the city of Chicago for racism because they are trying to close some schools that are less than half full. Illinois, where 3 of the last 4 governors have gone to jail. Illinois, where congressmen are congressmen until they get caught. Illinois, one of the last true bastions of corruption in the USA.

I can't think of why they would issue illegal immigrants driver's licenses, but there must be something in it for them.

This isn't surprising, Obamaville invites everyone aboard...

You know the USA has excess "revenue" to give away to the world...

Also the USA has about 45,000,000,000 open jobs so we need illegals.

Also illegals have NEVER had a problems with driving in the USA.

WELCOME ILLEGALS!!!!!

Low integrity poster, Democratic code words explained, in liberalism for dummies.

New permanent revernue - New Taxes
Undocumented aliens - Illegal Immigrants
Stimulus plan - Incurring huge debts our children's children won't be able to re-pay......

The list goes on and on you slewsie. Just because you use different words to describe something doesn't change the reality.

Another example of your slewy writing. So your contention is that in the political speak, undocumented aliens are really legal aliens, with green cards, visas, etc. Oh, wait, those documents would by definition make them "documented aliens". You don't get much more slewpid than that.

1. slewpid

Noun: Dumb to the point of ignoring factual evidence rebutting an argument. Obstinately stupid.

Adjective: To make oneself appear incredibly uneducated and obtuse, either intentionally or unintentionally.

noun: The definition from Webster's right in front of him, he was too slewpid to ascertain the meaning.

Adjective: The slewpid blogger didn't understand his posting invalidated his point.
