Legal Illegal Immigration

This is just stupid.

Gov. Gray Davis signed a bill granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants and told cheering supporters, many of them waving flags from Central American countries, that they should be able to drive to jobs.

So in California, does the qualifer "illegal" in "illegal immigrant" mean anything anymore?

"Hardworking people deserve to have their license," said Davis, who was also scheduled to give the Democratic response to President Bush's weekly address Saturday. "Now they can drive to work. They can drive their kids to school. They can drive their parents to the hospital."

Yeah, now they can hold the ID of a state which they are not a member of.

The license initiative, which takes effect Jan. 1, overrides a law passed in a wave of anti-immigration measures in the early 1990s and reflects the growing clout of the Hispanic community.

So is the support for illegal immigration among Hispanic U.S. citizens because they believe it gives them more political power?

Well I've got a humble little suggestion: Why not just give illegal immigrants the right to vote? Sure, why the hell not? Whatever politician supports such an inititiative is then sure to get the illegal vote.

California has historically been a progressive state in many respects, often leading the rest of the country in social and legal reform.

Now it's becoming a sick joke.
