    ...and with the bonus of having Homeland Security say, "Hell, Yes!" And do a Snoopy dance:

    Homeland Security, New York agree on new driver's licenses
    http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/10/27/immigr ... index.html

    They could have just said, "No. We do not support this." That's not really that hard, is it?

    If I were Governor of Jawja (and I'm not), I would make a statement that, "Georgia will no longer be accepting Identification from NY and will not permit the use of a NY Driver's License on GA roads without the accompaniment of a verifiable social security card or birth certificate..."

    ..another brilliant bloomberg idea...along with the straw man lawsuits. I will be honest and say that illegals really p*ss me off. I, along with all of you, work damn hard for my family just to see 1/3 of everything I make go to taxes, many of which support programs for illegals...just like this.

    niiiiice

    so as mentioned by others, I am paying for them and the gov. is letting them have drivers licenses. What the :censored: is wrong with this country! (Well NY so far really).

    This is just telling them, if you get here, you wont have to pay taxes and we will even give you an AMERICAN DRIVERS LICENSE FOR THE STATE OF NY.

    Like they will give you the correct name, address they are staying at, and date of birth.

    Boy this country has gotten stupid.

    New York has between 500,000 and 1 million undocumented immigrants, many of whom are driving without a license and car insurance or with fake driver's licenses, Spitzer said in September when he announced his executive order.

    Most of them driving taxi's in NYC :D

    The plan just gets dumber... if possible... but there are some people standing up to this tom-foolery:

    Opposition holds against Spitzer's drivers' license plan
    Oct 30, 2007 @ 06:51 AM
    By BRYON ACKERMAN
    Observer-Dispatch

    Changes Gov. Eliot Spitzer made during the weekend to his plan for driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants doesn’t have state Assembly Minority Leader James Tedisco switching his stance on the issue.

    “The only way you stand up to a bully is stand up to a bully and not back down,†Tedisco said. “And we will not back down.â€

    Tedisco, R-Schenectady, spoke Monday night during the Herkimer County Republican Committee dinner at the Crystal Chandelier Restaurant on Route 28 between Middleville and Herkimer.

    Spitzer’s newest version of the plan calls for a three-tiered approach to the state driver’s license system: one level that can be obtained by illegal immigrants and others, a second level not available to illegal immigrants that would allow access to federal buildings and airplanes and a third, most-secure level that could be used to cross the Canadian border.

    But Tedisco, county clerks and some local leaders accuse Spitzer of adding new parts to the plan to hide the fact that it still calls for providing licenses to illegal immigrants.

    “What he’s trying to use is smoke and mirrors,†Tedisco said.

    And after public hearings today in Rochester and Buffalo, Tedisco could be leading a lawsuit against the governor, if more doesn’t change by then, he said.

    The Assembly Republican Conference could file Thursday to sue Spitzer on behalf of the people of the state for providing a threat to security and breaking a state vehicle and traffic law established in 1995 by providing licenses to immigrants who don’t have social security numbers, Tedisco said.

    What the clerks say
    Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola said Spitzer is just disguising the real issue with his new plan.

    “It’s happy Halloween,†Merola said. “He dressed it up.â€

    Herkimer County Clerk Sylvia Rowan said that as far as she’s concerned, the plan hasn’t changed if it still includes giving licenses to illegal immigrants.

    “I think it’s a smokescreen,†she said.

    Rowan said she hopes to look through all details of the new plan soon but worries that she’ll be asked to go against her oath to not issue licenses to people without a social security number.

    Oneida County Clerk Sandra DePerno said she plans to hold her stance that she won’t issue licenses to illegal immigrants.

    “I’m still concerned about it,†she said.

    DePerno said she thinks it’s a “slap in the face†to immigrants who legally moved to Oneida County – and elsewhere in the country – to reward illegal immigrants with licenses.

    ‘A flawed plan’
    State Sen. James Seward, R-Milford, said he hopes there are more changes because Spitzer’s plan is still flawed.

    I've been hit twice by Mexican immigrants without insurance... I think they got "politely asked" to show up to court. My money says they never showed.

    UPDATE: Sweet!! After 100 posts, I'm no longer notated as a "GPDO Newbie" !! Man, this day just keeps given'

    If this goes through, it would be the american-fugitive/identity-changer/thief's wet dream. And yes, also paradise for all the underage boozers who could afford a trip to NY to get a REAL "fake" ID. Silly, just silly.
