Nov 18, 2008 Full story: www.statesman.com 23

To get to her job cleaning other people's houses, Maria depends on her car. Without it, the native of Monterrey, Nuevo Len, says she would be hard-pressed to keep a job.

The only "mug shot" you needed to show is that of Maria illegal alien. I really don't care if she cries tears to fill an ocean. She's an illegal, illegally working in my country. ICE go pick her up! She'll drive anyway after her license expires? What's new, our country is full of people just like this one!

Not only that they don't carry insurance and/or drive someone else's car and run. This just happened to me. No insurance, a visa (the stupid police officer didn't bother to handle information in report) and I ws hospitalized. Something very wrong here. FKing wet backs, I hate them.

No more rewarding illegal behavior. No license or anything "special" anymore for illegals. Stop feeding the bears.
The American people have spoken loud and clear that we don't want illegals to have a license. Yet, politicans and big business who benefit from cheap labor and illegals, keep trying to sneak it in. They think by telling some sad story about a sweet little old lady named Maria we will get all warm and fuzzy and say "OK, forget the law." Hey, I got a story for you to about a badass drug dealer named Jose and he needs his car to peddle drugs to your teenage kids. Want to give him a license?

Non-citizens are not the same as illegal aliens.
Illegal's should not get D.L. under any circumstance. Instead of giving them DL's our laws state they must be deported.
I swear our elected officals are morons.

I really can't blame you. Americans are getting screwed over by illegals AND our own government.

Let me break it down like this--Maria Sanchez an illegal gets a drivers license---she goes to the social security office and tells them she is Maria Sanchez from Dallas (of whom is an American Citizen) and provides ID for that as evidence --in turn they issue Maria Sanchez a copy of Legal Maria Sanchez's SS# card and then the fraud begins --next bank loans --Credit cards --car loans --when are people going to wake up and smell the coffee --and yes NATIONAL SECURITY is
the reason---because then that same Illegal Maria Sanchez goes to gun stores and buys weapons --and then she visits the Chemical company down the street--and builds a bomb--enough said another 9/11

It's only a twisting of words, kinda like how they've been doing with the 14th Amendment.

Why are you ppl complaining. You do not seem to mind that they(illegals) live and work in Calhoun County. It has been reported in the Topix about these ppl working and living here and you've not responded to it. Now you're crying about the drivers license problem. Do something besides complaining to the Topix. Bet you don't.

Buddy you can bet I do my part and dont complain. I call the INS/ICE so much I have an extension # to get right in without hearing the automated answering recording, they know that what I call in is worth their time. I call in asian resturants, mexican resturants, and my personal favorite is formosa/interplast/nan ya/j&m. I even follow people who pick up illegal/migrant workers and take pictures of license plates with the said illegals in route to their destinations of work and report them.

I can tell you that 3/4th of the people that are picked up are return/repeat offenders and of them 1/2 of them have serious criminal pasts like: drug/drug distribution, sex with minor/rape of some type, and most common is (besides sex with children) is identity theft and check fraud and forgery. Obama has swore to americans that tougher immigration laws are coming and no more slap on the hands and we need to hold him to it and contact local and state offices to ensure he keeps up his end of the deal. If we matched equal to the laws of mexico on immigration then every illegal would think we are too hard on them, even though we are doing exactly what would and is done by their government to illegals over there. I do not have a problem with someone trying to become an american, work for the american dream and live right beside me respectfully as I would with them, but to come over and commit crimes and steal identities and think they can get away with it is plain stupid. Does anyone think that we would get fair or light treatment if we did even misdemeanors over there? Not on your life.

Well at least someone is doing something about it. Maybe if we multiply someone by 100 we can have somebodies doing something about it. Maybe even include the un-American employers and li-ocal authorities in this wothwhile endeavor. However, i've said it before, i wouldn't put to much stock in what Obama and his very liberal cabanet say. Be interesting to watch.

We all need to be doing something about the illegal problem. Anyone can make a phone call or send a FAX or write a letter or an email. You are on the computer right now. Do something. Be heard.
If nothing else just keep sending the message that we want our borders secured, the fence built and our laws enforced.

Dude ur the moron. Illegals here get free medical treatment, free rx. almost free food. Most don't have and don't want a socila secuirty number. They can go to wally world and spend manty dollars on tvs, cd, etc, that i can hardly afford on retirement. I worked many years. I paid in social security. I paid in Medicare. I paid in income tax. Most illegals won't evern work for you if you hold out social security. My and many other retirwees are still paying in income tax. If they want to live and work here, get legal and pay taxes or go back home.

Well listen to this,iam here on the border fighting the drug lords and on a daily basis i see
what you guys are complaning about. Why don't we
some it all up.We complaine about the illegals, but we are to lazy to get out and do the work that they are willing to do for the same price that they do. afraid to get out in the hot sun, to good to make someone elses bed, or garden for those that have made it better than us, instead we envy those. No I am not condoning the illegal activity, but just to raise the point that americans are some of the laziest people on earth.
If there is work that we do gooders won't do, give them a work visa and let them do the meaniel work that no one else want to do. I love my country and have fought for it and will died for it,but we need to stop complaining and get out and do the work. Oh, by the way we are raised to one day to become the wealthiest that we can be. They are raised to make a decent living, and yes there is a difference.

Speak for yourself. I have done work that some others would scoff at just so I could put food on my table and a roof over my head.

the same old tired story. lets do away with all the government handouts for everyone and see who works for 8 bucks an hour. why should the taxpayers subsidize less than living wages?

Man its so amazing to me how much ignorant people there is out there. Like the moron who says that he does something about the illegals in America. He call the INS and he even has them on speed dial or something. That person needs to get a life!!!! I am a American Citizen born and raised in the United States and had the fortune to meet the love of my life an illegal(who by the way is now a citizen). And can speak first hand of what type of people they are. They are the hardest workers ever, they do the jobs no one else does. They to pay takes and HELL they dont get it back like us (when we do our tax return) will at least some of us. So all I can say to all yall haters is get a LIFE... and get over your self because your not any better....Any for Smith1, I pay everything you do and you dont hear me B**chn, you are complaining about your retirement. I bet your just a grumpy old man....
