No folks, this isn’t a joke. I just hope our glorious state elected officials in Raleigh have the sense to nip this idea in the bud.
Latino advocates say they’ll start lobbying N.C. legislators for driver’s licenses, in-state tuition and wage enforcement for those who are undocumented, likely heating up the illegal immigration debate.
It’s the first time advocacy groups across the state have created one agenda, which was released Tuesday by El Pueblo, a Raleigh-based nonprofit.
The agency’s top priority is to push for a special driver’s license for illegal immigrants. Several states already use such an alternative.
After North Carolina started requiring a valid Social Security number or a valid visa to obtain a driver’s license, many illegal immigrants chose to drive without one because they still have to work and take their children to school, said Zulayka Santiago, El Pueblo’s executive director.
“When you have drivers on the roads not fully informed of our traffic laws, that puts all our communities in danger,” she said.
Testing 1-2-3… Hello… *taps screen* … anyone with a brain out there?
How about the fact that people entering this country illegally are automatically breaking the law (that is kind of what “illegal” means). And the fact that most of the reported deadly accidents on the roads these days in Charlotte are caused by undocumented aliens behind the wheel.
The American community is already in danger. Here’s a wild idea… have the illegals learn English in order to get a job, and apply for citizenship through existing law. That way when they are here legally, they will be fully informed of our traffic laws because they’ll be able to hear them in English, read them in English, and comprehend them in English.
This dopey concept by El Pueblo is nothing more than a license to encourage more law-breaking by illegal aliens.
