    Fund for Local Reporting! Community organizers met with Berkeley city officials on Thursday to discuss concerns about the Berkeley police seizing cars of undocumented immigrants, which they said had generated fear among some Latino families.

    Julie Sinai, chief of staff to Mayor Tom Bates, said that although the mayor was aware of the issue and sympathized with the immigrants, there was little that could be done since state law authorized the police to tow and impound vehicles for 30 days when driven by drivers who were unlicensed, or who had suspended or revoked licenses.

    “The mayor has been continuously opposed to the state law which says that immigration status is required to get a driver’s license,

    yes they sure have a lot of that.
    I support enforcement and see its lack as bad for the 3rd World as well. Remittances are now mostly spent on consumption not production assets. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)

    [quote]Silverman, who is working with immigrant groups in seven counties in California who are trying to end the police practice of impounding cars based on the sole reason that the driver is not licensed, said that the Fourth Amendment protects people from “unreasonable seizures.

    So "organizers" are concerned that police are ENFORCING the law! Notice how comunity organizers do not suggest that illegals without a license stay off the roads! They attack the police for keeping the rest of the community safe from these derelicts behind the wheel!

    I hope every illegal invader who chooses to get behind the wheel without a license is terrified about being pulled over and losing their car!

    Furthermore, who is the registered owner of these vehicles? Is there any requirment that the registered owner of a vehicle be licensed to drive that vehicle? Perhaps there needs to be a law passed which requires anyone who is registering a vehicle with the DMV also have a valid drivers license. That might be the first step in keeping these invaders off the road!

    However, it sounds as if some so called "leaders" are really not interested in keeping these invaders off the road...

    NoBueno,

    Down here, they don't register, inspect, insure them or get a license. They buy them from individuals and just drive off.

    My car was totaled by someone behind the wheel of a car that had been sold three times and the ownership was never transfered from the first owner.
