NEW YORK They were celebrating outside the governor's office Friday as Eliot Spitzer handed a landmark victory to a half-million illegal immigrants.
The state will no longer require proof of citizenship for driver's licenses.
"We're changing our policy with respect to getting more people out of shadows and into the system so people don't hide they're here," Spitzer said.
What a fool. How the hell are you going to be able to tell who these people really are?
Under the new policy, the Department of Motor Vehicles will accept foreign passports and birth certificates from immigrants as proof of identification. They will no longer need to provide a Social Security card.
Well that's just great. Ever seen a birth certificate from Syria?
That would be almost impossible to forge, right? And of course the brainiacs who work at the DMV will probably just take the word of any Arabic-speaking co-worker
Though they can't vote (yet), Spitzer is sticking up for the illegal alien community:
"As long as I'm governor we won't pretend they don't exist, cut them off from society," Spitzer said.
No, Eliot...you should be deporting the illegal aliens who live in your state instead of giving them privileges that citizens have to earn.
One more thing. If you open the story link, you will see this sub-headline:
Move Should Cut Down Unlicensed Illegal Immigrants
Hmm. Anyone else have any other suggestions on cutting down "unlicensed Illegal Immigrants"?
