[QUOTE=cr726;2216603]In your mind NY would be the first state to have illegals get drivers licenses. You are a complete Jerkoff.[/QUOTE]
I suppose this is conventional wisdom, huh? Like everyone knows that crap you scoop up from wikipedia twenty seconds before posting. Let me help you: [I]Oregon is the only state on the West Coast that openly acknowledges that it issues driver licenses to illegal aliens. In addition, Oregon is one of only five states that do not verify the Social Security numbers of driver license applicants. The result is that Oregon has become a magnet for ID fraud, the methamphetamine trade and illegal immigration. In addition it has put a terrible burden on our public schools, the Oregon Health Plan and the criminal justice system.
The 2007 Oregon Legislature will address the issue but only because they are forced to do so. [B]In 2005 Congress passed the REAL ID Act. This act requires all states to verify that driver license applicants are either U.S. citizens or legal residents. If a state does not comply with the act by May 2008, that states driver licenses will no longer be valid as proof of identification when boarding planes, entering a federal building or in any other dealings with the federal government. [/B]In essence, citizens from non-complying states will need a passport or other similar IDís when traveling outside their state.[/I]
If you were governor, NY would be the sixth. Bully for you!
