    States to Illegal Aliens: Welcome

    States to Illegal Aliens: Welcome
    Many offer driver's licenses, free college tuition, and easy employment


    by Edmund Kozak

    Many states are offering illegal immigrants a host of goodie bags brimming with benefits at the expense of the American taxpayer.
    These states are putting their security at risk and undermining federal efforts to control illegal immigration.

    States “need to decide, are they going to be in the business of discouraging or encouraging illegal immigration?” said Jon Feere,
    legal policy analyst at the Center for Immigration Studies.

    Though technically a federal issue, when it comes to immigration, “states absolutely have a role to play,” Feere said.
    Unfortunately, many states have decided to go into the business of encouraging illegal immigration.



    Some 605,000 of the roughly 1.4 million drivers’ licenses issued in California last year went to illegal immigrants.

    Not only did the state allow aliens to obtain licenses — they actively encouraged it.

    After the passage of Assembly Bill 60 on Jan. 2, 2015, the California Department of Motor Vehicles embarked on a widespread
    information campaign, holding 200 community outreach events at a variety of locations, issuing Spanish-language messages on
    social media and creating a new page on their website dedicated to the new law.

    The cost of this outreach — coupled with the cost of processing the new applicants — is estimated at $141 million over three years.
    Of course, this cost will be borne by the legal citizens of California. While California clearly wants illegal immigrants to drive, it hasn’t
    yet made any efforts to require those immigrants to pay taxes.

    States Issuing Driver's Licenses to Illegal Immigrants

    http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/states-to-illegal-aliens-welcome/


    California isn’t the only state that offers drivers licenses to illegal immigrants. Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, New Mexico, Nevada,
    Utah, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia all provide illegal immigrants with licenses.

    Worse still, California and Oregon both enacted so-called “Motor Voter” laws in 2015, allowing for automatic voter registration upon obtaining
    a driver’s license. The California law did not mandate that the DMV database distinguish between illegal immigrant and citizen licenses, allowing
    for the potential that illegal immigrants could end up voting.

    The progressive paradox of states legally providing for people whose very presence in those states is in and of itself illegal is not confined to
    driver’s licenses. Five states — California, Maine, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania — offer a version of the Federal Temporary Assistance
    for Needy Families (TANF) program to illegal immigrants who meet certain qualifications. Washington and Maine also offer food stamps to certain
    illegal immigrants.

    States Offering In-state Tuition to Illegal Immigrants

    http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/states-to-illegal-aliens-welcome/

    Some states actually think spending their citizens’ tax dollars on a college education for illegal immigrants is a good use of public funds. California,
    Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin
    allow illegal immigrant students to qualify for in-state tuition. California, Illinois, New Mexico, and Texas provide those students with access to
    further financial aid programs.

    Many states also effectively encourage private employers to hire illegal immigrants by refusing to mandate the use of the E-Verify system, which
    verifies eligibility to work. Politicians can talk about strengthening the E-Verify system as much as they want, but if states do not require private
    businesses to use it, it doesn’t matter how strong a system it is.

    Only six states require all or nearly all businesses to use E-Verify to check employment status — Arizona, Mississippi, South Carolina, Alabama,
    Georgia and North Carolina. Twelve other states require its use only by some or all public employers or contractors. Two states — California
    and Illinois — have laws on the books actively prohibiting E-Verify compliance in some cases.

    States That Don’t Require Private Businesses to Use E-Verify

    http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/states-to-illegal-aliens-welcome/

    While some states, such as Colorado, have their own measures in place to prevent private businesses from hiring illegal aliens, they do not
    mandate use of the E-Verify system.

    One might recoil at the brazenness of the states that actively and willingly put Americans’ jobs and safety at risk by catering to illegal
    immigrants, but every state in the country is in effect forced to provide a de facto benefit to illegal aliens.

    It comes in the form of K-12 education, to which illegal immigrant children became legally entitled after the constitutionally dubious
    1982 Plyler vs. Doe Supreme Court decision. In California in 2014 alone, educating illegal immigrant children left taxpayers there with
    a bill totaling about $12.3 billion.

    Ultimately, illegal immigration is a federal issue. But it's incredibly difficult to control illegal immigration when the country has become
    a piñata in the eyes of the huddled masses south of the border. They know if they break our barrier, free stuff will come out.

    Is it any wonder so many of them try?

    I keep raising the issue of whether states can actually grant driving privileges to illegal aliens under the treaties we have signed. Sure is hard to get a favorable answer. An American who wanted to drive in another country (ex. Mexico and Canada)would need to get an International Drivers Permit. And that's what most people from other countries would do to be able to drive here. This is part of teh three Conventions on Road Traffic that we have signed on to. It's international protocol. The tourism industries welcome foreign visitors, but the government want to be sure that anyone operating a motor vehicle is duly qualified.

    I've been told that individual US states, like California, can go beyond this treaty and award privileges. Hey...not so fast. There may be reasons why the federal government entered into this treaty, and international treaties take precedence over state law. The federal government has decided that foreign persons who want to operate a motor vehicle while in the US, must have a license from their own country. Now if a foreign individual becomes a resident here the state law would apply. But illegal aliens are not legal residents.It doesn't matter how many years they have been here; without authorized admission they are still residents elsewhere.

    Is it just me or does this seem like alot of money for just 10-11 million illegals in the whole USA. Over 12 million for each of the 10-11 million illegals here. This is just in California. Are we being played?

    Many states are not listed as officially giving DL to illegals BUT they have made the process of obtaining a DL ridiculously easy.

    Pennsylvania allows one to order online a DL (when paperwork comes, go to a center for photo id) which requires a SS # & address - no checking of name, SS # - every illegal in Philadelphia and there are a lot due to sanctuary city status proclaimed by mayor & city council (never asked the populace) is driving.

    They ALL drive and they are ALL illegals!

    If the federal government had done it's job and secured the border and controled illegal immigration no state would have to deal with any illegal aliens.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    YES!! And under the US Constitution that is the sole role of the federal government with regard to all immigration: to prohibit it after the year 1808.

    Stop all Federal Funding to sanctuary cities and States. All driver's licenses issued to non-citizens need to be deemed "null and void" and should be confiscated!

    Use the DMV database to round up illegals and deport them. We have military C130s, process them on the base, load up the plane and ship them out.
