(NaturalNews) The left-wing extremists who run California operate by catering to specific demographics in order to remain in power — specifically, the state’s immigrant population, whether staying in the country legally or illegally.
About nine months ago, the California Legislature authorized, and Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed, a bill to allow the state to issue driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. By all measures, the program has been a success (or failure, depending on your point of view). Over 500,000 licenses have been issued so far, despite the fact that these folks aren’t even in the country legally.
In California and a few other places in the country, driving is treated as a “right” where everywhere else it is treated as a “privilege.”
As reported by Fox News Latino:
“Armando Botello, a spokesman for the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), said … that the milestone was reached last week. ‘For us, the DMV, it is a source of great pride to have reached half a million this soon. We thought we would issue half a million applications per year and we did it in 9 months. This means the DMV work is paying off and that all drivers will be safer now,’ said Botello.”
Driving is a right, not a privilege
Here’s the “logic” of the state’s Democratic leaders: We must issue licenses to those here illegally rather than deport them and continue preserving such privileges for American citizens or immigrants who are in the country legally.
The state began its program in January, when it started providing special permits after a law took effect allowing illegal aliens to get one, as long as they provided an identification document, proof of residence and passed a written exam (so requiring an ID to get a driver’s license is okay, but requiring one to vote is discriminatory, racist and bigoted — got it).
