"The newly sworn-in governor said he would push to amend the law to allow illegal immigrants to seek drivers licenses without presenting documents on their status.

García Padilla lodged two executives orders so medical centers don’t ask incoming patients about their immigration status or request their paperwork.

Another executive order directs the Education Department to adopt regulations to ensure that “all in Puerto Rico have access to the public education system regardless of their immigration status.” "

And of course the most hypocritical line in the article:
"“There can’t be fundamental rights for some and not others in Puerto Rico,” García Padilla said." - what about the fundamental right to vote for the President and to elect voting representatives in Congress?

It's official, this clown is parroting the Democratic Party agenda in an attempt to curry favor with The Powers that Be so they derail statehood ... which is traditionally associated with the Republicans.

Several other states allow illegals similar privileges including California and Illinois. Here in New York then Gov. David Spitzer (a Democrat obviously) attempted to grant illegals drivers licenses in 2007 and passed the State Assembly Democratic majority but was then shot down by the State Senate Republican majority.

Furthermore granting driver's licenses to any illegal immigrant raises a whole host of national security issues as they can then be used to board flights to the mainland as to masquerade as American citizens.

This should not be allowed. Agapito should stop trumpeting the Democratic Party agenda from the rooftops.

How does New York deal with driver's licences for temporary workers?

How about with illegal immigrants?

According to the NYS DMV:
"NYS recognizes valid driver licenses held by residents of other US states, US territories and Federal districts. If you become a resident of NYS, you must apply for a NYS driver license not more than 30 days after you become a NYS resident."

Prince Andrew Cuomo has said he favors granting illegal immigrants driver's licenses but so far it hasent happened. AFAIK only California, Illinois, and now Puerto Rico grant driver's licenses and other state privileges to illegal immigrants.

He obviously took a green light from Obama coming out for immigrants. That is what this is about.

Dominicans have always been using PR as a gateway for eons.

Many of those tourist taxi drivers in the Condado are Dominicans.

My question is..... What happens to all those illegals who are already partway in the system who are using a name that is really not their own?..

Plenty of that going on.

Are they stuck with them?. It gets fuzzy.

Agapito and Cuomo both know that Homeland Security is intervene with states' and territories' driving licenses.

Apparently both are still in campaign.

Of course, all Agapito knows how to do is campaign. Someone forgot to tell him that the election is over LOL

Prince Andrew Cuomo on the other hand is gearing up for his presidential run in 2016. Hillary Clinton vs Prince Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary.

If its by federal mandate, then we haven't received the funds for it.

Does New York?

Yeah but they are more expensive than the normal driver's license, apparently it's sort of like a driver's license and a mini passport combined into one.

So apparently New York already received its federal funds to implement it.

We have yet to receive ours.

Otra "Agapitada".

Ahora entiendes la razón por la cual estaba tan histérico cuando Fortuño perdió(porque Agapito no ganó, by the way).

Vamos a tener 4 años de disparates, desaciertos, endeudamiento, mentiras...you name it-todo para extenderle una muerte agónica a la colonia, en vez de dejarla morir en paz y dignamente.

La van a seguir desacreditando y endeudándola con la idea de que esté tan "chavá" económicamente que "el americano" continúe con la negativa de acabarla y así poder negociar la soberanía (por default).

Vamos a ver si les sale la jugada (hasta ahora, llevamos desde el '48 con éste emborujo)....LOL

Today's link goes on to state that officials are mum on his.

What kind of message is AGP sending?.

Did the Dominican community come out to vote for him in large numbers?.(those that are able to vote)

I would like to see a graph sheet of breakdown in voting patterns.

What do you if "officials are mum" or AGP's message?

Heck, you don't even know your own state, city's or borough's officials messages.

This proves my point, stop opinionating about life in Puerto Rico, you know zilch.

Technically the Feds have no say over a state matter like this ... they kept silent when California and Illinois did the same thing and because it is Federal policy to treat Puerto Rico as if it were a state it only makes sense that they keep out of this as well.

Personally I think it's a huge security issue to be granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants not to mention allowing them access to state services will further burden the taxpayer ... Puerto Rico has voter ID laws so unless they are legal residents it would be difficult for them to cheat like that woman who voted for Obama SIX times in Ohio.

Last year CBP/Border Patrol caught 702 illegal immigrants in Puerto Rico.
www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/newsroom/news_releases/lo...

Surprisingly high number ... bear in mind that it is estimated that they stop less than 1 in 4 illegals so the number of illegals in Puerto Rico could very well exceed 20,000+
