    Illegal immigrants with licenses 'very big disappointment'

    Illegal immigrants with licenses 'very big disappointment'

    Becky Yeh - California correspondent (OneNewsNow.com) Wednesday, February 05, 2014

    An advocate for legal immigration says California's new law providing driver's licenses for illegal immigrants will make the state a magnet for illegal behavior.

    California officials are concerned that a new law offering driver's licenses to illegal immigrants in the state would make it difficult for documentation.

    During a Department of Motor Vehicles hearing, the California Latino Legislative Caucus pressured the DMV to quickly develop regulations and accept applications for licenses. Speakers also urged the DMV to accept a variety of documentation including utility bills, union ID cards and baptismal certificates.

    "It's a very big disappointment to us that our most populous state in America is aiding and abetting illegal immigrants, which is a violation of federal law," says William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, or ALIPAC.

    The legislation's author considered shelving the law amid concerns that the law would expose immigrants to deportation and discrimination. Under federal law, driver's licenses for illegal immigrants must contain a feature that distinguishes them from regular driver's licenses.

    "It's going to create an incentive for other states to follow their lead," suggests Gheen. "You can use your driver's license to open banks, rent homes and conduct other business in every state."
    An analysis reported that providing licenses to illegals could cost the state roughly $140 million to $200 million over three years.

    ENTER THE ILLEGAL ALIEN TWILIGHT ZONE - California wants to kill Arizona SB1070 saying "It would drive illegal immigrants into other states."


    California has asked the U.S.S.C to overturn Arizona’s SB-1070, saying it would drive illegal immigrants into other states.
    Among other things, it makes it a crime to be in the country illegally and to seek work.

    SACRAMENTO — California has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Arizona’s tough immigration law, saying it would drive illegal immigrants into other states.

    The Arizona law passed two years ago has been largely blocked by court order because of court challenges. Among other things, it makes in a crime to be in the country illegally and to seek work.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled an April 25 hearing and a ruling is expected in June.

    The San Francisco Chronicle says California Attorney General Kamala Harris has joined 10 other states in asking that the Arizona law be overturned.

    Harris says in documents filed Tuesday that the law exceeds state authority, conflicts with national policy and would drive illegal immigrants into other states.
