    @Food4thoughts My poor attempt at humor. I was referring to the possible pink slips that may be coming out with sequestration. Apparently bad things come in pink.

    If they have "No Lawful Status", how are they able to get a driver's license and why
    should they have one?! This stirs controversy...there should be no controversy, they
    should not have a license.

    If we were self loathing enough to let them settle here illegally and we must give them all the benefits of citizenship. And, pay dearly by reducing quality of public education and availability of health care as our just desserts. Try driving in Mother Mexico without legal I.D or a right to be in Mexico..........if you dare!

    Since they are illegal they should be glad to even get a DL. I can't understand why they are getting them.

    I think every state should have this wonderful plan. Advertise it everywhere. And when the ILLEGALS come in to get their license LOCK 'EM UP!!!!!!

    let me say this first. Do I believe that all illegal immigrants should become legal yes but yesterday I experienced something with an illegal (thinking he was I live in Saint Louis... the roads we're treacherous. I was stuck on the highway for an hour. 3 Mexicans... 1 who could not speak English pulled me out. Noy one American even offered 2 help me!!!

    I've met some wonderful Mexican people, and that was great of them to help you,
    I think we've gotten a little skeptical when it comes to helping others sometimes. However, a few winters ago, I was in a hurry and pulled into Kohl's parking lot, I
    hit a snow bank, got stuck and was under my car trying to dig myself out with my
    freezing hands...lol..but, there were probably six or more people who stopped, a
    really cute Air Force guy and a freind, pulled me out by putting a chain on his pick-up
    truck, but everyone was so kind, it was freezing cold and people were advised to stay home. Smart, huh?... LOL

    @wonka45ACP you're talking apples and oranges I don't think the Taliban is going to try to get a US citizenship. we all know we're talking about Mexicans in this forum

    No lawful status & illegal likely means 'no insurance'. If they can afford a car - they can afford to be on the tax rolls paying into the country they have chosen.

    what does one's migrant status got to do with car insurance. not only that, but having a license doesn't necessarily mean that one owns a car. i have an international driving license, a nys driving license and a brasilian driving license, but i don't own any sort of motor vehicle anywhere. i

    it also has nothing to do with if or not they pay taxes.

    @dances-weebles - Then why issue them a driver's license if they don't need it. They are ILLEGAL , they sneak, they hide,- what da heck do they need ID for ? Does anyone even look at the 'increased crime rate' in heavily populated illegal alien areas ? They don't need ID , usually they pretend not to understand anything in English . Why , what are they doin here if they don't want to become American citizens ? Oh yeah , free handouts at the real American's tax-dollar expense.

    @mudpike oooh... they sneak and they hide. wow! you realise, don't you, that even if you don't own a car you do drive on occasion... right?

    oh, and do you remember me telling about the family who lived in chicago? both of the guy's daughters are english teachers who speak the language probably better than you do.

    @mudpike you're not missing anything. i simply ignored your stereotypical statement regarding crime rates. do you really believe that the majority of people who cross our borders are involved in crime? the percentage of those who are is miniscule.

    The illegals should consider themselves lucky that we would even consider giving them licenses. "no legal status" and a pink stripe is more than they deserve.

    Question: Why is a government agency issuing drivers licenses to persons that are in this country ILLEGALLY? Doesn't the ILLEGAL part kind of get in the way a bit?
  • #39

    @dances-weebles - My point. It's ironic that you can be "illegal", paying no taxes, sending money back to Mexiwherever and still get assistance from our government. Of course, THEN the government cries that we have no money and here comes the fiscal cliff and what do we do about immigration.

    Heffalumps and Jackasses both need to pull their heads out and take a breath.

    @AntiPorcheria as an example, i know a man who moved from brasil to chicago with his family and lived there for almost 14 years. he never once asked for a dime in welfare. he worked, first as an investment consultant, and then as a sales rep for a major retailer. he proudly paid all his taxes, and social security... all of which is money thrown away as he'll never realise one penny of it. a few years ago his oldest daughter moved back to brasil, and the rest of the family soon followed.

    and there is no winnet ridden 'fiscal cliff' that's nothing more than just one more political buzz phrase like 'slippery slope' or 'smoking gun'. they are meant to stoke your paranoia. it seems to be working, too.

    @dances-weebles - LOL. I was with you up to the dig at the end.

    It's only paranoia when it's NOT happening.

    Certainly there will be anecdotal, unsubstantiated stories (such as your family de Brasil), but much more substantiated are those that are a burden on the current taxpayers.

    Either make them legal or quit serving them. But stoking both sides of a fire just makes the wood burn quicker.

    @AntiPorcheria well, the difference is that i believe that any person standing on u.s. soil deserves exactly the same rights, including all medical and educational benefits paid 100% by the federal gov't.

    the truth is, however, that very few of the hundreds of thousands of immigrants, both 'legal' and 'illegal' are drawing any sort of public assistance, and the percentage of those who are involved in committing any sort of crime is actually miniscule.

    the best way to make immigrants legal is to simply allow them to walk across the borders any time they please and get a job, settle down and raise a family. problem solved.

    I'm real tired of all these efforts to pretend illegal immigrants are something they are not.
    The Democrats have set the molasses pie of the welfare state on the open window sill on purpose, to attract more votes for themselves.Then they have the gall to demand the American people pay for it without complaining!

    If a person is an Illegal Alien, they should not be able to fly under the radar. The first thing we need is to identify them. IMHO...they should not get any legal document until they first go before a court or other legal authority and declare themselves, pay a fine, and have a background check. Then, and only then, we can have some idea of who they actually are. A drivers license in most states today has an information strip on it. A police officer or other official can swipe the license and immediately know more about the person..ie; Identity to see if you have warrants or insurance. We don't know anything about these illegal aliens' past histories. They can immediately become "legal" to do many things with a drivers license.
    Look, I bought a new vehicle in Sept. 2011. I paid for it with cash and tradein. I was required to furnish a drivers license and proof of insurance just so I could register it and be allowed to drive away in it. Illegal aliens should not be able to do this. They should not be able to drive at all.

    Why not. My work name tag has different color stripes for access authorization and skill identification. It's a visual thing.

    Yes...But does it also say on it anywhere...."No Lawful Status"...I'll bet that somehow it doesn't...

    @Sonny Welp, the security clearance work sites I've worked at did have your security clearance status on it plus color differences! Allowed for visual and legibility of your "status". This, in my opinion, is nothing more than appeasement of illegals.....HMMM.... how about our government appease me a little, I did pay mucho impuestos es ano!!

    The only thing with a pink stripe we should be giving illegals is a bus ticket back across the border. What part of illegal are people not understanding?

    it would be better if it was bright red with the words illegal aliens on them. there is no reason to even give them a license all things need to be as rough on them as is legal.

    (SLAPS FOREHEAD) Why in the hell are they even considering allowing ANY legal documents for ILLEGAL aliens. DAMN! Give them legal deportation papers and STOP SPENDING OUR TAX DOLLARS ON THIS STUPID SHIT!

    Should staple that license to their shirt before putting them on the bus back where they belong with their children with them!!!

    In what world is it a good idea to give drivers licenses to people who are not even legally aloud to be standing in the DMV? We must be the only ass backward country on the planet that would allow somthing like that. My family came here in 1903 the legal way and had to put up with the bull shit that went with it...... now people get a almost free pass and they are still BITCHING????

    I agree, Countryboy. The article clearly states: "the proposed design of a new driver's license to be issued next month to some illegal immigrants in North Carolina is causing controversy. It will have a bright pink stripe across the top and say "NO LAWFUL STATUS." It clearly states, "illegal immigrants."

    How anyone can believe that an illegal who violates our immigration laws deserves a driver's license is beyond me. Try that in Mexico and see what happens to you.

    From Mexico's immigration laws to become a permanent resident:

    PERMANENT RESIDENT
    Original and copy of proof of investments or bank accounts with an average worth over the previous year equivalent to $95,000.00 USD;

    •Original and copy of documents that prove that the foreigner has had for the previous six months an income from a job (outside of Mexico) or a pension that pays at least $2,400.00 USD per month;

    •Proof of parent-child bond with a Mexican citizen by birth (this would be birth certificates of everyone involved, plus any other documents proving the citizenship of the Mexican citizen);

    •Proof of the same parent-child bond with another Permanent Resident.

    Wonder how many illegal Mexicans could meet the 95 thousand dollar test.

    Why the outrage about the stripe an the text? The bigger outrage is that they're issuing the licenses to people who shouldn't be here.
