57% decline? What a surprise. <insert sarcasm here>

As we saw with AZ's SB 1070, illegals immediately react BY LEAVING, even if it's JUST A HINT OF A PROPOSED LEGISLATION AGAINST THEM.

You see? "Attrition Thru Enforcement" WORKS. Illegals self-deport themselves ON THEIR DIME. It doesn't cost us taxpayers one red cent.

Why the fed govt can't understand this simple concept just shows you how out of touch they are with basic, simple human-nature psychology. If a fix is simple, they can't believe it. They believe the more complicated the procedure, the smarter. HUH????

So the questions now are: Are they just driving without a license? Where (State) have they gone to get a drivers license?

Correct me if I'm wrong but Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Washington are the only States allowing illegal aliens to get drivers licenses.

they don't care if they have a license to drive. the DL was used as ID to get a job since most states use that as proof of residency. They drive unlicensed and uninsured, that's why in NM you are required to pay an additional premium for 'uninsured motorists' since most accidents involve these leeches on society.

They seem to get them in Colorado. I've been down at the DMV before and it was packed with illegals unable to speak or read english. Apparently they were getting a Colorado ID card, which gives them certain right. All I know for sure the DMV guy, a small town DMV, sure was pissed about having to do such work for people he knew were illegals.

BS.

And the rates of insured drivers (actually vehicles) has changed very little year to year in NM and nationalay is more tied to enforcement of mandatory insurance rules, reporting standards and the state of the economy.

WA and NM are the only two that give DLs identical to those of LEGAL residents, ie: ones that can be used for valid ID purposes. I know UT gives a drivers permit not valid for ID, unknown for sure how HA, ME, MI & OR do theirs in that respect but suspect it too is like UT's. Its been touted numerous times that WA and NM are the only two giving DLs to ILLEGALS.

Although a permit is better in this respect than a DL, other than for ID there is no difference IMO and ILLEGALS should not have DLs, permits or any other privileges afforded LEGAL residents - PERIOD!

Let me clarify. They do get them in CO. I've worked with several hundred illegals 'You Claim' and I absolutly know their tricks. Fake SS cards bought out of the back of restaurants, sold by other illegals, so they can get drivers liscenses. I've been in the illegal trenches so to speak and have become quite aware. I have had two friends killed by illegals in car accidents. Both illegals had jobs thru fake I.D's. One had a drivers liscense and the other did not but was employed by a construction company to drive around supplies. Both my friends were killed violently. One of the illegals, who was my friend, was also killed in the car accident, where it was determined it was the illegals fault. He had just bought a car and was racing another illegal up the highway, going over 100 miles and hour, when he lost control and crashed into on coming traffic killing my friend. He was torn to bits. The other illegal forgot to tie down his load and therefore a ten foot long piece of rebar fell off the construction company truck and thru my friends windshield striking him in the forehead, going completely thru his skull. How's that for first hand knowledge 'You Claim'!!!
