They aren't legal citizens, BO has given them a deferral from deporation, which in reality just put them in limbo. They can get a job, but have to find a way to get to it other than driving. Frankly, that minor detail of not having a license hasn't stopped them in the past, why should it matter to them now? They will do what they do best, ignore our laws.

If you've ever driven on Mexican highways you'd know why we need to be protected by Mexican drivers. It's like taking your life in you're hands.

Wet back piece of shit.
Excuse me?

First -- I'm not a "wet back".

Second -- I'm agreeing with Iowa's refusal to grant driver's licenses to ILLEGAL ALIENS.
