I cannot believe this is even a topic of discussion. I have worked hard over the years to keep my New Jersey driving privelege. What makes them special!!!!! Shame on you. If I have to show the NJ DMV 6 points of identification proving who I am,(I was born in this country) why should they receive special treatment.

Someone tell me how "driver card " may be a threat to country security?
Anyone who sees it (cop,security guard etc) immidiatly knows he's dealing with "illegal" so where is this threat?
Moreover it is not ID it has to be accompanied by Legal ID as Passport.
More threat is a scenario where many illegals are driving without any licence and not insured.In case of little trouble he/she got a ticket or court expences(top).In case of serious trouble (including maybe killing someone in accident (in worst case scenario) he/she is just living country after bailed out.
Don't belive it may happend?There was one case I know before(not exactly linked to unlicenced but to illegal) in Poconos PA around 2000-2001 .Dump-truck driver cost life family of four.After he got bailed out (pretty serious money) he fled to Mexico and never got caught...
Where is THE DANGER??? You tell me...

Hey Matt,

You really think that giving them a "Driver Card" is going to be an incentive to be law biding citizens? I live in Newark, NJ (regardless of what this thing says) they come here with out of state license plates (NC, FL, PA, MD) not only because they don't have the six points ID, but because of the high prices on car insurance! They have out of state driver's licenses, registeration, and maybe some bull$hit insurance that is fake or inproper. They hide and sneak around do thier day labor jobs, if they get hurt they use our hospitals scott free. They bring children here and clog up the schools scott free. They don't pay income, housing taxes, or CAR INSURANCE however guess who does!? I do you do and anyone who is here legally. If you want to pay for all of thier freebees be my guest, but I am sick and tired of having to foot the bill for everyone who has a problemor is not here leagally. This country is going to hell in a handbasket because of a$$holes who are giving it away and the rich people who are selling it away. You may not realize until it's too late that you are making it a third world country and all the rich people's money won't be worth the paper its printed on real soon. I own my house because I work hard not because I showed up and they said " Oh here you are here's your handout" my grandparents came here and had to leard to speak english or they would have starved to death. There was no ESL program they learned or they did'nt get any work. This country was built by immagrants, however they came here through the proper channel they did'nt have any breaks and they worked hard for what is here today. Please don't give it away! I won't let you!( Any spelling errors or grammar send me the hand out and i'll go back to school.)
