If you want to get a driver’s license in New York, you must prove your identity, date of birth, fitness to drive, and you must present a Social Security Card for identification. But if Governor Eliot Spitzer has his way, the requirement of a Social Security Card will go away (Google search). He claims that the requirement is not fair, because too many illegal immigrants are not able to get a Social Security Card.
What a crock of @#$%&. This guy is not fit to be an elected official. The Governor’s spokesperson, Christine Anderson, said the plan would make New York roads safer, because all of the immigrant drivers would be able to get licenses and insurance.
New York Assemblyman, Andrew Raia (R-Northport) says, “I think the governor should be arrested and prosecuted for aiding and abetting thousands of individuals who have broken state and federal law. His argument that it will make things safer is a joke.”
Why do we have such a tough time understanding the first word in “illegal immigration”. It’s a crime. These people are criminals. You can’t treat them like ordinary citizens.
Thirteen county clerks have pledged to disobey the governor, even if they are ordered to follow the policy.
I just can’t believe this is happening in America. How can we go on telling criminals that it’s okay? I commend the county clerks for doing what’s right, and not assiting the governor in is his attempt to provide assistance to criminals.
