California – State & Federal Government Shirks Duty to Citizens?

Making Illegals Legal

When we think of the Golden State, we believe of great weather along the Pacific. Hence, with its great climate and attractive ladies in bikinis, this is the image. But the California Democrats have pandered to illegals and their families since the mid-80’s. So they have now succeeded in displacing citizens in some cities with illegal alien majority populations.

Illegals in California don’t even need to show an ID to vote. Also, they are typically Central American, or Mexican. Most of all, they typically have large families that vote Democrat, of course. The super-majority California Democrats even went so far as to make legal what is illegal. They did so by giving these law breakers licenses to drive cars. Also, this is true even though many of these illegals use false identifications.

  • Selective Enforcement Elevating Privileges Over Rights

This is the same state that is trying to disarm its natural born citizens by reducing how much ammo they can have. Democrats also decided to limit how many rounds they can have in their weapon. (putting criminals with guns at an advantage who don’t obey Utopian laws). These Democrats have allowed sanctuary cities harboring killers and drug dealers. But the right to keep and bear arms is an unalienable right. Contrast this with remaining in the USA without permission and even voting in some cases. These are not rights, but crimes. In effect, the government has elevated privileges extended to lawbreakers. Hence, they have placed illegal criminals over the God granted rights of ordinary citizens.

One justification of creating sanctuary cities is often under the guise of protecting ‘immigrant rights.’  But illegal aliens are not immigrants.  An immigrant is a person who entered the U.S. legally and maintains legal presence. When a person is illegally smuggled into the U.S. or violates their visa restrictions–he/she is an unauthorized (illegal) alien subject to deportation under existing U.S. law. . .

The Illegal “Legal” Driver Statistics

Yes, the hypocritical state of California could be quite a surprising place at times. The new statistics revealed the number driving licenses issued and to the people they were issued. Hence, it was quite a surprise that more licenses got issued to illegal immigrants than to local and legal residents. According to the statistics, the total number of licenses issued to the illegal immigrants in only half of this year make up to 52% of the total licenses issued.

These statistics have been compiled taking into consideration the licenses issued from first of January to the 30th of June of this year. The confirmation on the number of licenses issued to the illegal immigrants has gotten given by California Department of Motor Vehicles. There were around 397,000 licenses that got awarded to the illegal immigrants.

Licenses in 2015

All these licenses got handed over the individuals in just the first half of 2015. The sudden increase in issuance of driver’s licenses to illegals is the result of a new law. The total number of licenses issued in this same period was confirmed to be at 759,000.

Comparing this figure with the number of licenses issued in the first six months of the previous year is amazing. It is now known that there was an increase of 174% in the issuance of permits this year. Licenses issued in the first half of the previous year were at 435,000. Also, in the next three years, at least 1 million more illegal immigrants will apply for a driver’s license.

But these will be the people that the new law covers. So they will be applying for the license as illegal immigrants. The bill supporting their application for driver’s license got passed in 2013. According to the law, the DMV will issue driver’s licenses to shady people.


Governor Brown Celebrated as the Rights of Citizens

Were Given Away to Illegals

Even if the person applying isn’t able to prove legal presence, the new law issues licenses. It was Governor Jerry Brown who signed this particular law. He even celebrated the signing of the law with many ceremonies.

In the words of the governor, California is a “dream” state.  So the licenses are getting issued to illegal immigrants. Residency and identity are two things that still have to get proved. So before an illegal immigrant applies for driver’s license this must occur. Just like any other applicant, they have to go through the process of taking the driving test as well.


Not a “Dream” For Personal Injury Lawyers

At least one Los Angeles car accident attorney firm is reporting that:

What California is finding out quick is that this well-meaning bit of social engineering actually made the situation worse– a lot worse. Some of the illegals did get the required insurance, but many others decided not to keep the policy. The state requires all drivers to show proof of insurance when receiving a license– but not during the period afterward. It has become a very common trend for [illegal] immigrants to drop insurance, sometimes the day they receive their license. (Source.)

After enactment of the law, there have been 687,000 applicants for the license. The marking on their licenses looks different from the marks found on other licenses. Hence, those issued to legal US immigrants and citizens are not the same. The marks on their licenses will help law enforcement departments in many different ways.

For example, these individuals will not be able to travel by planes. So they will still not be able to furnish federal identification.  The total number of illegal immigrants who took tests was 1.1 million. Out of this enormous number, 436,000 individuals also went for the road driving test. The illegal immigrants are hugely happy for being able to apply for driver’s license under the protection of the law.
