This way to the egress?
The idea of giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants is fundamentally unsound. The supposed beneficiaries of this law will think it’s a trick. They know perfectly well that no rationally governed nation would do such a thing. They’ll think that if they show up with the papers proving they’re undocumented, the US will ship them back home to wait in line with everyone else.
I expect people who support illegal immigration will support driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants. They may be damaging their own case if they do. If a man’s unemployed and has a driver’s license, is he still an undocumented worker? They’d do better to call them “undocumented drivers” and just let them drive whenever they want.
UPDATE 12 January 2013: Among other marks of idiocracy, “You know a country is run by idiots when you can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in the country illegally.” Several of those quotes are keepers.
