Jeb Bush backs illegal-immigrant driver licenses
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Gov. Jeb Bush endorsed a bill to allow illegal immigrants to get driver licenses, saying they are in the state anyway and officials should accept that fact.

(snip)

"We shouldn't allow them to come into the country to begin with, but once they're here, what do you do? Do you basically say that they're lepers to society? That they don't exist?" he asked. "A policy that ignores them is a policy of denial."

The issue comes up just four months after California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a fellow Republican, fulfilled a major campaign promise by repealing a law that would have allowed an estimated 2 million illegal immigrants there to begin applying for driver licenses.

Opponents of the California law said it would have posed a threat to national security because there weren't sufficient background checks. Some also argued that providing licenses to undocumented immigrants rewarded illegal behavior, but Schwarzenegger has not ruled out backing a law with tighter safeguards.

7. The dirty scum needs someone to clean his toilet
Edited on Thu Apr-08-04 04:48 AM by saigon68
These type rich people need gardners, babysitters and maids. Like most rich people they want to pay the lowest price. Illegal aliens are the answer. They will "work for peanuts" and there are no evil Wage and Hour, Unemployment or Social Security regulations to worry about.

Also "White Men Don't Clean Toilets".

In this age of terrorism and mass carnage done in the name of religion, Davis, in an obscene effort to save his own skin, panders to a voter bloc by making it easier than pie for terrorists and other criminals to legally obtain our version of a domestic passport.
