It's sad when some politicians and segments of our population want to degrade our American Citizenship to the point where it has no value or meaning.

The Costs of Illegal Immigration to North Carolinians

North Carolina has a rapidly growing illegal alien population of about
385,000 persons, and the fiscal burden on North Carolinians resulting from
public services used by that population is similarly increasing. The federal
government estimated North Carolina's illegal alien population at 380,000
persons as of 2007. The growth of the illegal alien population since 2000
accounts for all of the total foreign-born population increase over the same
period. It also accounts for more than one-sixth (17.7%) of the state's
total population increase.

FAIR estimates that the annual fiscal burden on North Carolina taxpayers
from illegal immigration is more than $1.3 billion. That equates to an
annual cost of about $388 per native-born headed household. In addition,
there is a cost to the state's economy of another $1.2 billion from
remittances sent abroad.

The rapid growth of the illegal alien population prompted the state
legislature to take action to deny driver's licenses to persons without a
Social Security number or valid visa as of August 2006. Since then state
agencies have had to verify the legal employment status of their new
employees. Additionally, seven counties and the Durham police department
have entered into Section 287(g) agreements with the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) that train and deputize local law enforcement
personnel to work cooperatively in immigration law enforcement. These
measures are a positive response to public opinion in the state. A
Rassmussen/FOX poll of North Carolina voters found in 2007 that more than
seven out of ten respondents agreed that it is "very important to for the
government to improve border enforcement and reduce illegal immigration." An
earlier Elon University poll found that 56 percent responded that
"immigrants are a burden on the state because of the jobs, housing and
health care they take." To the extent that these enforcement measures
encourage illegal aliens to leave the state, they should help Governor
Perdue cope with an anticipated one to three billion dollar budget deficit.

Again this is not a license for immigrants. Immigrants can legally get a license in any state. They are not criminals and have proof of their I.D. This is a license for illegal aliens. They are criminals and can use any stolen or fake identity they want.
As long as the media goes along with the government propaganda the ignorant sheeple will follow.

It's just another option for fraud. They'll make money from copies and selling all the info to other migrant's in other States to be used as voter ID and going back and forth from the U.S. to mexihell. We are morons.

Passing the bill is a violation of federal law USC 1324 which makes it a crime to encourage illegals to live here. If the violation results in a death (and most illegals are drunk drivers), the violator can be executed. These legislators should think about that.

You are mixing up rights and privileges. Having a DL is not a right; it is a privilege. A right is something that all human beings are entitled to. A privilege is something that is bestowed to those who qualify.

Driving a car is a privilege. It is NOT a right.
