A nation of, by and for illegal aliens
- Bottom Line - The so-called "Conservative" Republican Party has controlled Congress for 16 out of the last 20 years and the borders have been wide open the entire time.
- Neither party gives a rat's ass about American citizens. Our political hacks are bought and paid for by open borders Wall Street interests who want to flood the country with legal and illegal labor in order to drive down wages.
(San Jose Mercury News) - After a new law went into effect in January, more than half of all new driver's licenses issued in California this year have gone to people who are in the country illegally, the state said Friday.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles reported it has issued roughly 397,000 licenses to people who live in the country illegally. A total of 759,000 licenses were issued in the first six months of the year.
The DMV did not immediately have licensing numbers for 2014.
The new law initially generated huge interest, with long lines at DMV offices in January and February. The DMV expects to see about one million more applicants over the next three years who are covered under the new law.
"It's great that people are taking advantage of this new law," said Jackelin Aguilar, community organizer for Placer People of Faith Together, an Auburn, California-based group that supports the new licenses.
"It's definitely a step forward for the families, and having identification is huge," Aguilar said.
Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, which advocates for legal and limited immigration, chided California for making life easier for people in the country illegally, at the expense of citizens and legal residents.
"There are now 400,000 more signals to people all over the world that working illegally in California is encouraged by the government itself," he said.
About 687,000 people have applied for the licenses issued to illegal immigrants. Applicants must pass driving tests and show proof of residency and identity.Read More . . . .
