Their View: Arizona immigration argument leads to national ID

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court took up the issue - and from what the justices said at oral argument, it seems the United States might soon be getting more European.

Who would manage a federal id program? if the federal govt were to manage it like they do the VISA program it would mean more infrastucture with no results! I believe the supreme court will agree that states do have a part in the immigration program by virtue of the fact that: a) the illegals live in a "state", they have a right to know who is residing within their borders, and will be the ones that have to deal with them as criminals; deal with the litters they bring along (or have), that diretly affects their schools, medical, food stamp and subsidy programs.

The Real ID Act will help. It officially goes into effect January 13, 2013. Only two states have not implemented it thus far, as they are the only two states that issues a driver's license to illegal aliens. They'd best get moving, or the people living in those states won't be able to get on a plane or enter a governmental building.

"...that the law could be used to discriminate against Latinos, who are more likely to look suspiciously like illegal immigrants in the eyes of the Arizona police."

Haven't latinos gotten it yet?!!! Over 40% of them are illegal aliens!!!! Where would you go looking for them, in an all white neighborhood, or an economically upscale neighborhood?!!! NO! A resonable policeman would go to the bario and rack 'em in! Geeze!

Also, I as an American citizen would not have a problem producing "papers" to legitimize myself. I am asked for my drivers license to prove eligibility for driving ROUTINELY, and am not at all offended. Wait a minute!!! I just realized, the only people who have problem with this are illegal aliens, NOT seniors and minorities as they say to justify not having papers!!!

I live in NE. We have the secure drivers licenses, however, I'd like to know how a person with an ITIN can get a license, then register to vote. I find this disgusting at best. Any ideas?

No it's done with the blessing of someone. The Govt knows what's going on, however, refused to allow a voter ID law last month to pass. Too many state senators in the tank for immigrants. They used the worn out excuse a photo ID would be too hard for immigrants and low-income "folks" to obtain.

You don't need a social security number to get a driver's license. You *do* need to prove you're here legally. To register to vote they merely make you check a box stating you are a citizen. They should require you to prove citizenship in order to register to vote. Period.

Turn the person in. I would!

I would if I could. We have an entire area in Omaha, NE called "Little Mexico" with the (D) Mayor's blessing, calling our town a sanctuary. The information I received is from an excellent source, however, names weren't given. I do know of a Hispanic convicted felon having served time for drug distribution, living with an illegal Mexican. He told me she's illegal. They have 5 under the age of 6 and she's ready to deliver again. He's a small business owner, using cash only. It's difficult if not impossible to get city inspectors, little lone L.E. to act in that protected area of the city. The City Councilman and State Senator are in the tank protecting them as well. Anything they want, old Sen Ben Nelson's found federal funding for also. Harry Reid's hand picked Bob Kerrey to run for Nelson's seat. Sorry I went on and on, however, it's frustrating. TY

I know when I needed to reniew my license to the secure one, I had to provide: Certified State B.Certificate, Utitily bill and or Deed or Property tax receipt, vehicle registration, etc. Gosh perhaps I should have died my hair jet black, spent time in the tanning booth, applied for an ITIN, used a Sharpie for my brows and learned Spanish? lol

Nope. She has a legitimate complaint. You're the one whose prejudice *for* illegal aliens and Hispanics in general.

What is?

The Real ID Act already requires proof of citizenship or legal residency. Too bad, so sad. Guess you and your illegal brethren will be going home soon.
