Acevedo "this is about helping our citizens here in Illinois" for citizen safety measures....so illegals need not worry about applying for a license? this would be the right thing to do so they could pay insurance. Right! and since when do illegals give a damn about DOING THINGS RIGHT? WITHIN OUR LAWS? for citizens' protection? I say make it mandatory to deport if caught driving without a license ESPECIALLY IF THEY KILL IN AN ACCIDENT AND THIS DOES HAPPEN!!!!

Most don't care if they have a license or not, and they obviously don't give a flip about our laws. You are right, they don't go about doing things the "right way" and prefer to wait around things we fought for are simply handed to them...it would be just another reward for breaking our laws, and that simply makes no sense.
