Driver’s licenses for illegal aliens

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.

    1. I hand’t even thought of that. The dmv will have to be check their ids carefully before issuing a license. They’ll want to be sure only legitimate illegal immigrants get them, and not people who are trying to work the system.
