Licencia? Si!

Sep 13th, 2013 | By | Category: Bob's Blotter, Politics-General, Politics-Relevant;

capitolA bill that would allow “undocumented residents” (illegal aliens) to get an actual sort-of drivers license, which would allow them to more easily by insurance and not get their cars impounded inconveniently, has made its way to the governor’s desk.

The bill is AB60 by Assemblyman Luis Alejo (D-Watsonville). These licenses would be visually different from regular drivers licenses and non-driver ID cards currently issued by the state.  This worries or irritates some people, but will probably keep the feds happy.  The bill also expressly prohibits employment and housing discrimination based on the document, which is sort of odd.  Isn’t it illegal to knowingly employ an illegal alien?

Is this a good idea?  Maybe.  Will it work?  Maybe.  As someone who has tangled in a traffic accident with an unlicensed, uninsured illegal alien a time or two I have mixed feelings about the whole thing.  It is,however, not my call.  It is generally believed that Jerry will sign the bill, so we will see what happens.

    Just another step in the demise of this state. Ignorance of the law is no excuse! Unless you’re and illegal alien.

    The ilks in Sacto have learned well from their DC counterparts. This bill was amended only a couple of hours before it went up for vote so hardly anyone read what it truly was about (Does anyone remember the vote on Obamacare? The bill was gutted and amended several times to fill it with illegal regulations and pork then put up for a vote at the last minute before anyone had a chance to read it thoroughly – “we have to pass it to see what’s in it”? After all it’s only 14,000 pages long.) While the illegal aliens of this sanctuary state may be rejoicing that they can get a license, they best not use them in any other non-sanctuary State as it will clearly identify them as an illegal alien and they may be subject to arrest and deportation, Now, knowing this, how many do you think will rush to flood the DMV to get theirs? But then again, how long do you think it will take until a lawsuit is filed challenging the requirement to place that special ID mark on the license? Maybe by next week?

      Hey guys, don’t get your poopies in an uproar. I’ve heard the DMV has until 2015 before having to put the new law into effect. The way things are going in Kookfornia, by that time you guys may have an illegal alien as governor. Ya’all come on down to Texas!

        Howie, if Obummer and his ilk have their way, by 2014 there will no longer be ANY illegal aliens, but texas is looking better and better with each Kookifornia law passed. I wish there was someway to get around paying the out-of-state surcharge for PERS administered healthcare plans. Hell, by 2014, if Obamacre goes full swing, even PERS administered healthcare plans may be on the way of the dinosaurs.

          Obama care will eventually take over the entire health care system. You will have to buy into it, or pay the fine.
          Maybe those who plan to move out of California should wait a couple of years to see which states pass legislation to ignore it. The fight is not over yet.

        kl2008, Obamacare is all that Obummer has left to hang onto now that Putin has made a complete fool of him. Shades of Jimmy Carter. But don’t despair. There is still hope because Hillary will take over in January 2017. Now doesn’t that make you feel a lot better?
