ACTION ALERT – MINNESOTANS, NEIGHBORING STATES and ALL PATRIOTS
Without allowing Minnesotans to weigh in on proposed legislation that will provide drivers licenses to illegal aliens – our Minnesotan Legislators (four Republicans and the remainder Democrats) apparently feel that they will decide without our input And, they are moving it as fast as they can – so we are unable to weigh in and derail it.
What kind of representation is that?
Rep Karen Clark says it is not an issue of illegal immigration but public safety…. …….
SHE IS WRONG – it is an issue of illegal immigration or no such bill would be necessary.
It is legislation (as written in 2013 – below) that will accept foreign ID like the “matricula consular” card, its is legislation the removes citizenship requirements all together and eliminates status checks on some visa holders
This is lawlessness – it rewards those who knowingly are in the Country illegally
…..(by Rep. Clarks own words)…. those who are driving without a valid drivers licenses nor insurance. And, this legislation provides absolutely no proof that it will make our roadways safer – one can only wonder if concern for safe roadways is the issue then why haven’t our laws been enforced to date – ensuring road safety?
Who are these individuals that will reap a valid I.D./Driving Privilege??? What regulations are being added … and would it even matter….seeing that the rules – the law – is not being enforced now why would we believe it would then. Is accepting foreign identification from someone that states they live in MN – really who we want to give a Drivers Licenses/ID to?
Call your Member of the Minnesota House of Representatives
(ALL who are up for re-election this year)
and demand that they not skirt the ‘Rule of Law’ – that they not reward and cave to the demands of those illegally present in this Nation and State – DEMAND that We have a right to weigh in prior to any legislative action on their part.
OUR VOICES MUST BE HEARD!!!
Here is a link for each and every member of the MN House of Representatives – please contact your Representative and as many others as you can and say…………..
NO to Driver Privilege /Drivers Licenses for Illegal Aliens
(Text from article below dated 2013 – this is the bill that is moving forward)
HF348, approved Thursday by the House Transportation Finance Committee, would modify eligibility requirements for a driver’s license to allow applicants to use identification cards issued by another country as proof of identity; remove citizenship requirements; and eliminate immigration status check dates on the card for applicants with short-term visas.
Legislation would help undocumented immigrants drive legally
Undocumented immigrants would be able to obtain a Minnesota driver’s license under legislation that continued its advance Thursday toward the House floor.
Current state law requires driver’s license applicants to show they are U.S. citizens or are living in the country legally. HF348, approved Thursday by the House Transportation Finance Committee, would modify eligibility requirements for a driver’s license to allow applicants to use identification cards issued by another country as proof of identity; remove citizenship requirements; and eliminate immigration status check dates on the card for applicants with short-term visas.
Applicants must still have a verifiable Minnesota address, said Pat McCormack, director of the division of Driver and Vehicle Services.
Latino supporters of the legislation crowded a House hearing room for Thursday’s hearing. Opponents of the bill earlier this month said those living in the country illegally shouldn’t be able to obtain Minnesota licenses. But, Rep. Karen Clark (DFL-Mpls), the bill’s sponsor, told the committee it isn’t an issue of illegal immigration.
“It’s a public safety issue,” she said.
Thousands of undocumented residents are driving illegally on the state’s roads without proper licensure or car insurance under current law, Clark said; the bill would clear hurdles to obtaining both and, in turn, make Minnesota roads safer.
Approved last month by the Transportation Policy Committee, the bill will now head to the House Ways and Means Committee. A companion, SF271, sponsored by Sen. Bobby Joe Champion (DFL-Mpls), awaits action in the Senate Finance Committee.
McCormack estimated the cost of the legislation at roughly $40,000. That, she said, would be due to change orders in the state’s printing contract for licenses and IDs.
A companion, SF271, sponsored by Sen. Bobby Joe Champion (DFL-Mpls), awaits action in the Senate Finance Committee.
If signed into law, Minnesota would become the fifth state to allow undocumented immigrants to get a driver’s license.
