The drivers’ license for illegal aliens thing: Proponents say that if they have a license they’ll get insurance and the roads will be safer, blah, blah, blah. But insurance isn’t required for a license, it’s required for registration. A license isn’t necessary for registration either. I mean, Grandma may not be able to drive anymore, but she may maintain the registration and insurance on her car for someone else to drive her around. People who have their licenses suspended or revoked can still have a car registered (and some drive anyway – loss of license doesn’t mean loss of the knowledge or physical ability to drive).
Granting a drivers’ license to an illegal alien will not result in safer roads, it’ll just dilute the value of the license for citizens.
