They should be very careful walking on public roads. Some illegal alien scum drunk out of his mind after a hard day of doing a job an american won't do might run their DREAMer asses over and then flee back to his cesspool in Mexico.

Classy

I'm all for an expedited departure of illegals, but I won't go so far as to say they hold the market on fowl behavior, drunk driving etc....

Why aren't these people being deported?

It is not the job of government to make life easier for those who are here illegally, it is supposed to uphold and enforce its laws. Stop giving in to these people. Let them whine and stomp their little feet all they want because we don't owe them a thing.

Foreign Nationals wishing to drive in the U.S. are entitled to carry an International Drivers License. They have absolutely no need for a U.S. drivers license.

New Mexico has seen the abuse's of giving DL to illegals and are trying to appeal their choice. The abuse of this choice follows them to use the DL as proper ID and thus they mistakedly gave Voter registration permission from that abuse.... Ironic that they are given and inch, and won't settle for under 10 miles. No No No No licenses.....

States who issue drivers licenses to foreign nationals will lose the right for all of that state's residents to fly on U.S. Airlines under current provisions of the Real ID Act. New Mexico and Washington State better wake up quick.

P.S. ANYONE in the United States who doesn't chose to obey this countries laws are fee to leave. We will not miss you.

You can call it whatever you want but to attack a States right issue is rather un-American of you simply because you don't like the rule.
And this "we don't owe them a thing" rant is rather arrogant of you. The USA doesn't owe you a damn thing either. What makes you think that you're so much more special than the next person? Get off the high horse. If a State wants to hand out DL to non-citizens then so be it, if not then that's fine too.
So, do you feel better now? Got it off your chest? I never said I was more special, nor do I make demands of my state or my government.

Really??? You wouldn't happen to be referencing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would you? On December 31,2011 Obama signed the NDAA,this would have ended those rights. True a federal judge ruled against this. This is only temporary. In Obama's next 4 years he will load up the supreme court with justices that see things his way and the NDAA will become a fact of life. You will have no civil rights. You will have no 1st amendment right. You will have no 2nd amendment right. Of course,this would most likely affect minorities. Do you really believe the elite are going to allow them any say so in how things are done. LOL Boy are you gullible.

For the same reason why they didn't deport your ancestors back to Africa. The USA loves cheap uneducated labor.

They do if they have been here after one year. See there's another law you would break.

You miss the whole point of having a license. Once you do you are expected to obey the law. That pretty depends on how you were brought up. Having a license does not mean you have a get out of jail card.

"This treaty does not apply to illegal aliens –only aliens who have been lawfully admitted
to the U.S. Illegal aliens do not have the right to drive in the U.S. even if they have a
valid license from their country of origin.
• Aliens may use their foreign driver’s license to lawfully operate a motor vehicle, but only
during the first year. This requirement also takes care of any alien who was legally
admitted to the country but has violated the conditions of admission by exceeding his
authorized period of stay.
• After one year, aliens must comply with the residence laws of the U.S. state or territory
where they reside for continued authorization to drive. In other words after a year, they
must surrender their foreign driver’s license and obtain a driver’s license from the state
where they live."

Thanks for the clarification. I still oppose issuing drivers licenses to illegal aliens. They have no business in this country and should not receive any rights provided to citizens of this country.
