NO...this may seem like something small, but common sense tells us when you give undeserving people an inch they will continue to make demands for more and more. They will never be satisfied until they have it all, while never doing their part to become legal citizens. Our system is not supposed to reward anybody who breaks our laws, nor should we ever give in to them. They need to regroup, and come in through the front door with the proper documents in hand, earning them our trust, respect and willingness to help them become Americans. The current manner in which they bulldoze into our country only gets them our disdain and mistrust.

What a stupid question. Of course illegal aliens should not be allowed to get a driver's license.

No they should nto, they are criminals who need to be deported and not given anything to make them feel like legal residents.

Considering the purported obsession people have with law and order on these boards it is surprising to hear that it is better for people to drive without without licenses and insurance.

Yes. The world would be better off if they were not here and driving, but they are. This is just making the best of a bad situation

The problem is that state laws vary on requiring that a buyer prove he/she has driver's license or insurance when one first buys a car. In some states the person or dealership selling the vehicle must verify the person is licensed and has insurance in order to give them possession of the vehicle and allow them to drive off the lot. In other states this is not required. That is what needs to be addressed as the rquirements need to be the same in all atates. No license or insurance should mean you don't get to drive the car off the lot...period.

Good point. In New York you don't need anything to buy a car. Just money. Getting license plates is another matter, but I guess there are ways to get around that. The problem is that motor vehicle laws are so poorly enforced they are basically voluntary. If you do not follow the law they can fine you and that will effect your insurance. After that they can suspend your license, but that is it. This is a problem for most people, but if you do not care about having a license or insurance there is little that can be done. We are always reading stories about people who had their license suspended 50 times, but are still driving. In a perfect world they would go to jail, but there apparently is not enough room in the jails for traffic offenders.

It is interesting to look up the number of uninsured drivers in each state. In some states it is as high as 25 percent. The vast majority of those people are citizens.

All things considered if people want to demonstrate their driving skills and buy insurance we should probably let them since they will probably be driving anyway.

I license does not make someone a safer driver but does give them ID

Nor does license come with insurance and most drive here in Mexico without it and will drive up there without it

But putting them in a work camp or booting them across the river does fix the problem

Many border ranches just shoot at them like the scum they are when they try and sneak in
Lots of fun..........you should try it

No, they should not be given drivers licenses. If you don't want them driving without a drivers license then deport them according to our immigration laws. Stop giving them what they want and instead listen to the American people who are stuck paying the bills for these lawbreakers.

Deportations are at record levels. Illegal immigration is now measured in negative numbers. That's right. More people are leaving the country than entering it. There is your law enforcement. I guess all of our problems are solved now.

You people are crazy ! First off if you have a wreck with and unlicensed immigrant their insurance will not pay . Plus if they have license we will know they're here I know several illegal immigrant s and. Let me tell you I was the same as most with wanting to deport them all but Americans white or black or whatever will not work everyone wants big checks and know work or they are undeserving welfare or disability cases .if we deport all the Hispanics construction and farm labor will sky rocket and u will just think our economy sucks now wait till a head of lettuce is $6 . There Are 12 million here charge them $5000 a piece work permit s and tax them they will come in hoards . Do the math that's billions o f dollars overnight! And contrary to what people believe I have a guy with a work. Permit and pays taxes and ss and medicare he has to pay it by law but being a non citizen he is not eligible to ever draw anything at any age. I urge you that read this get the welfare and false disability claims stopped get the young people off their asses and go to work.
