A new poll finds voters oppose drivers' licenses for illegal aliens by a nearly five-to-one margin:
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of American adults are opposed to making drivers licenses available to people who are in the country illegally.The results won't surprise anyone except the Liberal/Progressive extremists that have taken over the Democratic Party.
Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Republicans oppose giving drivers’ licenses to undocumented immigrants. So do 68% of Democrats and 75% of those not affiliated with either major political party. There is little difference along gender, age, or income levels.I have said before, we should trust the people on immigration reform. The people get it. They intuitively understand that it is stupid to give someone known to be here illegally a license to drive.
The same analysis applies to the misguided Liberal/Progressive proposal to provide instate tuition breaks to illegal aliens contained in the so-called Dream Act. Fifty-nine percent (59%) of all voters oppose the concept of the Dream Act. On the left coast, 62% of California voters support Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's veto of the state version of the Dream Act.
Providing any sort of "sanctuary" only encourages more illegal immigration.
