"This bill will enable millions of people to get to work safely and legally," Brown said in his statement, issued immediately after the Assembly vote.

Safely???? Legally???? That is the funniest thing I have ever heard. The fact is, they shouldn't be working a job here at all since they haven't complied with our laws. Being devoid of the ability to reason must be a prerequisite for running for public office there.

Every state issues driver's licenses to immigrants. That is not the issue. California is now issuing licenses to illegal aliens in violation of federal law. It seem that federal laws do not apply in California.

ILLEGAL immigrant " legal " drivers licenses are nothing but a backdoor to 'documentation' and potential amnesty and citizenship programs.

Bad news is that these ILLEGALS can drive " legally ". Good news is that they are documented and any other names they use are grounds for CRIMINAL fraud charges and deportation. This is also another tool to find out if they are paying taxes, getting the required shots and where they are currently or supposedly living.

Too many of these ILLEGALs are here with or giving false/fraudulent information so I don't think this will matter that much.

But not every Californian is a fan. Davi Rodrigues of Save Our State, an anti-illegal-immigration activist group, said by passing the bill, the Legislature "has created yet another special class of persons who are to be exempted from average laws."

According to the Public Policy Institute of California, the best estimates suggest that in 2010 California was home to about 2.6 million people living in the state illegally.

"Almost a quarter (23 percent) of the nationís undocumented immigrants reside in Californiaóby contrast, the stateís share of the nationís overall population is only about one-eighth," the Institute reported.

Circumventing laws for illegals has become the new "American way". Americans are expected to abide by our laws, but illegals don't have to. All that breeds is discontent.
