Ill. gov gives illegal immigrants permission to drive

GasBuddy Blog -- Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed a bill giving illegal immigrants the right to drive legally Sunday, but concerns mount about whether Illinois is avoiding the problems that three smaller states incurred with similar legislation.

Fraud is one of the biggest issues being raised by critics, as problems in three other states with similar laws take hold. Washington, Utah, and New Mexico began to see hundreds of fraudulent applications for licenses after legislation in those states took hold. Illinois will not require applicants to be fingerprinted, but instead use facial recognition to deter fraud.

Governor Pat Quinn signed the legislation in Chicago Sunday alongside Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and some of Illinois top Republicans...

dont mean to sound ugly, but why would you give illegal immigrants a driver's license. i mean first thing if you know they are illegally in this country then report them and help send them back. second if they are here illegally they might not be able to read or wspeak english so good

Why not just issue citizenship at same time as drivers license.

lazydog: if they can't safely drive in traffic, yes, the license needs to be revoked. I know of a few seniors who are utterly unfit to drive and yet, insist on driving themselves (and others) several miles in traffic. Unsafe for everyone.

make them pay. Adds a lot of money into the empty coffers if illegals are paying for licenses.

It's just the Democratic agenda to secure their electoral base by including new voters which they can dominate.

Republicans are idiots to think that by joining this in a bipartisan way they can access these votes. Surveys have shown that what the large majority of Hispanic voters want is NOT immigration and open borders, but INCREASED GOVERNMENT BENEFITS!! (i.e., more welfare).

They're buying an electoral supermajority with our tax dollars.

Illinois is the worst state to live in. We give licenses to illegals and without allowing their identities to be shared with the feds. Illinois passes the right to work act. Illinois allows civil unions for gays (of course our lt. gov is a lesbian and many other officials are gay. We have the worst murders rate, especially in Chicago and yet have some of the strictest gun laws. Illinois is always last in good things like education and first in thing like highest taxes and violent crime. Illinois is a place that I plan to leave in the very near future, the libs have ruined this state for all eternity.

They are going to drive no matter what. I don't think this is the way, but at least there will be documentation on them and they are required to get insurance within a month or the license is revoked.

What probably wasn't posted here was a law requiring the illeagals to get car insurance a month or so back.

Like gun registration, maybe this is a way to round them up and send them back!

No, what it amounts to is mire vote buying....

That is stupid. You need to deter illegal immigrants coming to your area and driving privileges is the best way.

Double edged sword. If an illegal immigrant is going to drive then a license is required. I feel that there is a deeper incentive here and it does have to do with voting.

Sounds poorly thought out. How will facial recognition deter fraud? Facial recognition doesn't provide an identity to an unknown person, it only can identify someone that is already known.

Illinois governors know a lot about fraud. Their last two are in jail!
Don't fingerprint the illegal aliens, but fingerprint the CITIZENS that pay for all their benefits.
I guess the Democrats feel that this should ensure their rein of terror on the LEGAL residents!
