That is misleading! Perry is giving drivers licenses to ILLEGALS, he says they will look different.

"The immigrant driver's licenses will look different than regular licenses so that they are immediately recognizable to police, Perry said"

BIG MISTAKE! THEY SHOULD GET NOTHING THEY ARE HERE ILLEGALLY! JUST WATCH THE 'PRO 'IMMIGRANT' ATTORNEYS WILL CRY DISCRIMINATION!

Hundreds of Mexican Immigrants To Apply For Passports
http://www.digtriad.com/news/local/article.as...

Davidson County -- Hundreds of Mexican immigrants living in North Carolina could receive a valid form of identification Saturday.
Representatives from the Mexican Consulate will travel to Lexington to issue passports. The consulate will set-up at Grace Episcopal Church.

"I felt this was an opportunity for people to get an official document that they can count on and rely on," explained Davidson County Clerk of Court Brian Shipwash. His office invited the Mexican Consolidate to Lexington.

A Mexican passport will help immigrants apply for bank accounts, acquire housing and pay taxes, Shipwash said. "We will have documentation of an individual, whether they came here illegally or legally," he added. "This does not make them legal citizens of the United States. This simply is a legal form of documentation."

By having representatives from the Mexican Consulate travel from Raleigh to Lexington, Shipwash said immigrants living in Davidson County can apply for a passport closer to home and benefit from a quick turn around time. "In some cases, they could walk away with their passports the same day if they have the correct documentation," he explained.

Why are they being allowed to do this? Who is Mexihole to determine whether or not an illegal alien is legal here in the United States.

What a joke a passport is only god for a visa...

A stamp that lasts the most 6 month is it?

So who is placing the stamp in the Mexican passports, the American Consulate, which by law it requires one if you want to enter legally with a passport into the US...

And what and who lets this kind of crap happening?

man oh man...

Well AIG just got another 38 billion or so for their bailout, listen that passport no matter what can't be considered as anything other than having the right to stay here as a tourist or a student in the US of A...
It's meant for travel and it is not used for a permanent ID to receive loans etc...

What a crock indeed

Now that is pretty much what I ask myself, Glory. It went something like this..

I had wondered why this was happening. Really, what is the point? Wouldn't people from Mexico, here in the U.S.A. LEGALLY, already have passports?

Today, I read, "Gov. Rick Perry "wants proof of legal immigration, before issuing a driver's license." Gee would you breathe a sigh of relief reading that headline?

The article went on to read:

"The immigrant driver's licenses will look different than regular licenses so that they are immediately recognizable to police, Perry said "

Excuse me? The "Immigrants" WILL get a drivers license.

Lets add these two things together, shall we? The Mexican Consulate in North Carolina is traveling around passing out passports, that people can obtain THAT DAY! Could they be doing that in Texas as well?

"Hundreds of Mexican immigrants living in North Carolina could receive a valid form of identification Saturday.
Representatives from the Mexican Consulate will travel to Lexington to issue passports."

"By having representatives from the Mexican Consulate travel from Raleigh to Lexington, Shipwash said immigrants living in Davidson County can apply for a passport closer to home and benefit from a quick turn around time.

"In some cases, THEY COULD WALK AWAY WITH THEIR PASSPORTS THE SAME DAY, if they have the correct documentation," he explained. "

Geesh! Who is going to believe those are at all valid? Where is our government? This was announced in the paper for pete's sake!

Did you ever apply for a passport? Did you get it the same day?

At least there is a bright spot in the illegal immigration issue. It was reported in the San Francisco Chronicle that, Mayor Gavin Newsom, is moving to distance himself from San Francisco's "sanctuary city" position. He has pledged to cooperation fully with the federal investitation of San Francisco's policy toward illegals. The onus will now fall on the citie's board of supervisors. They are the ones who must abolish the "sanctuary city" status.
Los Angeles is also under a federal investigaion for it's "sanctuary city" staus.
If California is now moving away from welcoming illegals, we (as a nation) now have a chance to pull the rug completely out from under illegals and send them packing.

But Jim Harrington, director of the Texas Civil Rights Project, said the policy change is a bad idea because illegal immigrants are going to drive anyway.

"People have to drive to get to work. You want people to get (auto) insurance. They can't get insurance if they don't have a driver's license," he said.

==========

What a joke this guy is. He is advocating that these people be able to drive to jobs they are not legally permitted to have. He wants to 'pancake' being here illegally, driving here illegally, working and living here illegally. Gee, wouldn't all Americans love to get that much support from our representatives to repeatedly break laws.

No he is right...you have to have a driver´s license to have insurance and if someone hits me, white, black, brown, legal, or not...I want them to have insurance...makes sense. Yes, they should be marked differently but the state isn´t immigration and has the obligation to protect citizens in whatever way possible from being hit by an uninsured driver. We allow people who have DUI´s to have restricted licenses when they shouldn´t have a license at all, but they figure they are going to need to drive to go to work, the same ideology should be applied here.

Jrdn great to see you. Where have you been? I have always appreciated your posts. Sure who wouldn't welcome some help from DC? Certainly the citizens of this nation are past due for some representation that upholds our Constitution. Sadly we have been sold out by Traitors.

A step further needs to be taken, unless I overlooked it. And that is a LEGAL immigrant be issued a drivers license only if he can prove he has a vehicle AND insurance coverage for the period of time the licnse is issued. Of course conniving people exist, so they would also need to prove that the insurance has been paid for the ENTIRE TIME of their granted license. These people don't want to have to pay car insurance. So just sit back and WATCH THEM RUN!!!
