Questions outcome of issuing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants

To the Editor:

When I vote I have to show a drivers license. Will the illegals’ licenses show they are not citizens and therefore are unable to vote?

It seems that our politicians think that illegals will run to the DMV and thus register cars, pay property tax and get insurance. Don’t bet on this.

First of all, why would illegals in low-paying jobs, pay upwards of $500 annually for insurance, et al., when they have been driving for years without insurance.

Once the illegal immigrants get a driver license they will now compete with citizens for jobs requiring a valid license. Based on supply and demand, the rate of pay on these jobs will decrease for legal citizens. School bus drivers, wave bye-bye to your jobs.

The inflow of illegal immigrants from other states that will come here to get a valid license will put an additional burden on a welfare system in this state that is already overburdened.

Think about this, seven of 11 states that originally passed a bill allowing illegal immigrants to get a drivers license reversed the bill. This certainly is a big indicator that issuing these licenses  probably did not, in fact, bring in all this money from registration, taxes insurance, etc. In fact, it was probably reversed because of a financial burden on these states .

I am retired so this will not affect me, except when my taxes increase.
