TAXPAYERS TO THE WORLD

Again--those States that ignore public opinion and the billions of dollars extracted from public service and welfare programs to sustain illegal economic migrants and immigrants will initiate consequences of refugees arriving there from Arizona and other self-restriction States. If Oklahoma, Utah, Georgia Michigan, Florida legislators giving away to indulgent provisions, playing into the greedy hands of industry and other open border seeders. They too will be submerged by mass populations of illegal cheap labor, mainly from low income labor. These people are ready and willing to steal American jobs as they have been doing for three decades. Unsettled by new policing laws throughout the country, unknown numbers of foreigners will head in all directions looking for a better home.

States that pander to illegal immigrants such as California, Nevada will get their fair share of paperless people, as they spread across the Southwest. California has been soaked for a 24 billion dollar deficit, so how much money is your State taxpayers out-of-pocket subsidizing anybody who makes it this side of the fence or through airports. Illinois itself has to make-up 15 billion dollar deficit, with $4.6 billion attributed to taxpayers paying for foreign illegal settlement. No State is immune if the State lawmakers who decide to tamper down rigid laws. YOU--end up paying for the education, health care and accumulation of other entitlement programs. The schools are crammed with illegal alien children, same with hospitals and the US jails and prisons. Education has flopped as teachers have to spend more time, with students who cannot comprehend English.

WE CAN ONLY WIN THIS WAR, IF EVERY AMERICAN UNITES

Every State needs to be unswerving towards mandating E-Verify, 287 (G) and Secure Communities police programs. If you are here illegal and get caught, which you eventually will in some scenario you will be deported, with zero tolerance. Amnesty (blanket Amnesty or Comprehensive Reform or Dream Act) is out of the question with the majority of Americans and the growing membership of the Tea Party steadfast in their resolve. We have already had six hidden amnesties since Ronald Reagan's unenforced 1986 immigration law and we pro-sovereignty groups are suspiciously watching for these irregularities. NumbersUSA does not disguise the facts from the Leftist editorial, but offers disquieting statistics and what is really being done to stem the ever increasing tide of illegal immigrants? The US Government does not always tell The People the full truth, so those interested in the corruption and details emanating from Congress and State Capitols on the illegal immigration issue should investigate the website of Judicial Watch. If you want to call your federal or State Representative directly, find the phone number in the blue pages of your phone directory.

No, it may not be an issue for illegal alien criminals to have a drivers license until you are trying to board an airplane with your New Mexico drivers license, and you are told, "We do not recognize that as a valid ID. Do you have a passport?" It is coming so be prepared. You had better go to the Post Office and get your application for a passport.

So get a passport, Eunice. How much will that set you back?$150?
Why is that an issue for travel?

Most enlightened people have had a passport - if not since their teen years - for decades.

Maybe you should just try to sell Firestone tires or something more in your league and let diplomatic issues be handled by those with both experience and means?

Apparently the other 47 states which have enacted the laws the Gov is trying to enact must be all wrong. ONLY in NM can someone find arguements against this absolutely insane practice and allow such to continue!
I highly doubt the Gov will give up on this and we should help her by voting out these mentally archaic excuses for elected officials who support this driver's license fiasco!
I agree with you except that Washington State does the same thing.

Speak for yourself. I don't care about illegal aliens and drivers licenses. If nobody had told me that illegals can get a drivers license, I never would have known it because it has ZERO effect on me. Explain your rage. Is it real, or just an emotion stoked by someone to get you to vote for them?
lol Looks like you are raging because your illegal raza is getting taken to task. Explain that rage and emotion. Oh, and did I write somewhere I was speaking to you?

The only problem with your illogical argument is that by denying them a license will stop them from driving. It is 100% guaranteed they will not have insurance without a license. Probably an even money chance that with a license, they'll have insurance.
what makes you think that they will buy insurance? Good chance that they will run from a crash due to their fear of being deported. Driver license or not. Kick em out.......

I am guessing that this problem has zero effect on you because:
You don't pay car insurance.
You don't pay taxes.
You don't vote.

Probably are that with the little money they have they won't have insurance either way.

So why give them an ID that implies however incorrectly that they have the right to be here?

Others went through the process to come here legally. It wasn't easy for them but nothing worthwhile ever is. So why can't they?

Interesting article everyone should read. Not a bad idea to send a copy of this article to the Senate
as a reminder.
Disgraced Illinois governor never met an illegal alien he didn't like:
Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich arrested by FBI on corruption charges.
In 2003 he signed into law a bill giving in state tuition to illegals and supported the idea of
giving them drivers licenses for the same reasons the Senate here in NM claim. To make our
roads safer and so the illegals can get to work.
In 2006 Mayor Richard M. Daley, Rep. Luis Gutierrez D-Ill and governor Rod Blagojevich
helped inspire illegal alien demonstrations when he told them in Spanish that he understood
there values and concerns.
Governor Blagojevich knowing that he was being watched by the feds, he signed a bill
prohibiting employers from using E-Verify. If employers attempted to comply with federal
immigration law they would find themselves in trouble.
