Reason No. 6,035: Why We Should Split the State – AB60 Driver’s Licenses for Illegals

by Jack

In the latest and most brazen disregard for the rule of law, Hispanic legislators slapped each other on the back as they passed AB60, a bill that when signed into law by Gov. Brown will give driver’s licenses to illegal aliens!

AB60 is an insult to every law abiding resident who came here legally. It is a complete disregard for the notion that state representatives are elected to represent the interests of all the people of the state. This law caters only to a minority, and they are here illegally! AB60 is special interest, race based, legislation and there’s no other way to describe it.

Under AB-60, the licenses would have the initials DP (driver’s privilege), rather than DL (driver’s license), and would state that the document “does not establish eligibility for employment or public benefit.” California’s Department of Motor Vehicles will determine what type of documentation will be required to obtain a driver’s license. However, it’s stated purpose and it’s hidden agenda are miles apart. It’s really designed to win votes for democrats and bring us closer to an open border. And it erodes away another benefit formerly reserved ONLY for the citizens of California. These legislators don’t care if it encourages more illegal immigration, they actually want open borders!

Don’t think for one second this kind of thing is not related to sanctuary cities, it is! It brings illegals one step closer to a whole host traditional benefits and the costs of illegals are already killing us.

rottendemocratsWhy do these liberal democrat legislators seem to care more about appeasing the 2.6 illegals living here unlawfully than the average law abiding voter? Whatever the reasons, it has nothing to do with the rule of law; that part has been trounced royaly. Guess we will have toss out the age old “fruits of the poison tree doctrine.” That doctrine pertains to illegally gathered evidence and the summary says nothing legal may follow an illegal action. And yes, issuing a legal license to a non-citizen here illegally fit’s the premise of the doctrine. That’s why I say the legislation makes a mockery of the law and it should not stand.

The original bill as proposed by Assemblyman Luis Alejo (D) of Watsonville would have granted licenses to immigrants who could prove they paid taxes or worked in the United States. However, Mr. Alejo conceded this point late Thursday, reassuring Brown that California would adhere to federal procedures for granting licenses to illegal immigrants and subsequently winning the governor’s backing.

Brown’s support helped propel the bill through the California Legislature. This begs the question…is there one democrat left in Sacramento with an ounce of common sense and the courage to stand up for American idealism and our laws? I think not.

    Jack, lets cut to the core of the reasons as to the need of the State of Jefferson,:
    Reason number 1: Current Sacramento Liberal politics

    It’s incredible Jack…the very people that go ballistic over demands to see ID are now in the business of issuing ID.

    Enacting a law … is a brazen disregard for same? That don’t make no sense.

    They got elected, they rounded up the votes … that is how it’s supposed to work.

    You sure it’s not the “Hispanic” part that has you in a state? I mean, it really is, kind of, obviously apparent that’s where your problem is.

    The new law attempts to deal with things as they are, not as you would like them to be. Dealing with things as them have come to be, that’s the evolution part.

    If illegals are going to be here, and they are going to drive, I would prefer that they have to read the rules and take the test. I run across way too many drivers who haven’t the foggiest idea how a four-way stop works.

      Libby, I want to respond to what you said, “Enacting a law … is a brazen disregard for same? That don’t make no sense. They got elected, they rounded up the votes … that is how it’s supposed to work.”

      Now that is the most erroneous comment you’ve made for a long time. You pretend that Sacramento has a level playing field, where laws could go either way, for dems or republicans based on their merits and nothing else. Of course that’s how it’s supposed to work, but that’s not how it works…not even close! We have a one sided government without any checks and balances, except for criminal penalties if they get caught.

      The dems can pass special interest bills, tax hikes, gun grabbing laws, driver’s licenses for illegal aliens or whatever their hearts desire and that’s exactly what they have been doing! Don’t you read the papers Libs? This is why CA is broke, our schools are failing and business is fleeing the state! It’s also why this State has 34% of the nations welfare population! It’s why we now have more takers than producers! The Great Recession didn’t do this, it only got us to the fiscal cliff sooner that Sacramento had expected.

      The sad part is the “situational awareness” among a majority of CA voters is so low that the liberals in Sacramento can pass all the rotten, stinkin, lousy, bills they want and there’s little or no risk to their political future. Why,…. (you should wonder)? That’s so obvious to every informed voter: The new democraphics (democrats constituency) is too self absorbed with what government can do for them, what entitlements need to be improved for them, what special interest legislation will advantage them, and so on. They don’t care about what’s good for this State and the long haul, they want what they want and they want it now! The bills coming out of Sacramento proves I’m right!

  4. Tina says:

    Let’s see…even when we see something that is counter to what is in our best interests and our form and process of government we should just lie down and let ourselves be walked on? Evolution…it just can’t be helped!

    Jack: “It’s why we now have more takers than producers!”

    That’s a lie, and you know it.

      Re: It’s why we now have more takers than producers.

      Chris, it is not a lie and I wish you would dial it back a little. Why not just ask politely for me to explain where this comes from?

      This line comes from an article done in Forbes magazine. Unfortunately, it was controversial because the people who wear blinders (liberals/socialist0 want to resist the notion that 11 States are reported as under severe economic stress thanks to the high number of people receiving some sort of assistance and/or gov employment and that number exceeds the number of persons employed in the private sector. The people who are invested in growing government will claim thats not true because of how the numbers were arrived at, for example they say we shouldn’t be counting some people because they are employed, just not in the private sector and many of those receiving assistance are not on welfare. The Forbes article was attempting to show that people in the affected states can look forward to rising taxes, deteriorating state finances and an exodus of employers. The list includes California, New York, Illinois and Ohio, along with some smaller states like New Mexico and Hawaii. You can try to slit hair if you want, you can deny if you want, but when all is said and done these listed States are still in trouble. The balance between private employment and everybody else is unsustainable. That’s the real danger. We’re headed for big trouble and your response does not help us.

      Chris, look at it like this…. we constantly try to tell you that our train is speeding at 100 mph into a brick wall. Your response is, thats a lie, we’re only going 95.671 mph! You are so obsessed with literalism you missed the main point. We’re headed for a train wreck!!!!! Sorry Chris, I’m not trying to pick on you, but I am being honest and I wish you would think about it. As a future teacher you could do a lot of good or a lot of harm because of your influence. I think this is why Tina spends so much time trying to explain common sense stuff to you.

  6. Libby says:

    “You pretend that Sacramento has a level playing field, ….”

    I don’t get how this is pertinent. They were elected by the citizens of their districts, not by anybody in Sacramento. And they were elected. There’s nothing erroneous about that.

    Now, what they get up to in Sacramento, that’s an entirely other matter. But I have to say, if it were Republicans down there, politically machinating up a an storm, I don’t think you would be quite so outraged.

    But the political machinating, that’s what we send them to the state house to do. Nothing erroneous about that either.
