Always count on California when it comes to treating people who should not even be in this country better than American citizens. It seems that the extremist Democrats who populate the state government now see the protection and care of illegal aliens as their primary responsibility. Whether that entails passing new legislation to make sure that law enforcement officials don’t speak to ICE or passing laws that threaten entrepreneurs with exorbitant fines if they are caught cooperating with federal immigration authorities, California has made it clear that they are bound and determined to be on the wrong side of history.
Now, as the Justice Department prepares to sue the daylights out of Sacramento and several cities and counties are revolting against the state’s sanctuary laws, the news comes that no less than ONE MILLION illegal immigrants in California have been issued driver’s licenses! And what’s more: It appears that the state’s Democrats are actually proud of this statistic!
Luis Alejo, who authored the 2013 bill that forced the DMV to issue licenses to illegals, said the law was panning out quite nicely.
“Immigrants are getting tested, licensed and insured and this is making our roads safer for everyone,” said Alejo. “Today, we see the law working the way it was intended to and has dramatically improved the lives of a million immigrants and their families.”
Say, we know a great place for ICE agents to camp out…
According to the Sacramento Bee, studies show that the decision to give licenses to illegal immigrants has only been to the benefit of California’s safety.
“A study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed hit-and-run accidents dropped in California after AB 60 went into effect, and had no discernible impact on the total number of crashes or auto-related fatalities in the state,” the Bee reported. “The California Research Bureau’s required January 2018 report found no AB 60 license holders had filed complaints with state agencies alleging discrimination related to their license ownership.”
Fine. We’ll take those stats at face value, because we’re not here to get into an argument over whether or not illegal immigrants should have driver’s licenses. This is what the left does – they keep pushing the acceptable window further and further so that you find yourself debating nonsense rather than the real issue. And the real issue here is that there are even a million illegal immigrants in California to begin with. And of course, if that’s the number that have driver’s licenses, we can only assume the actual total number is astronomical.
Too bad we don’t have some decennial method of finding out the exact figure…
