It’s that time again, the two-year long run-up to U.S. presidential elections and a time to reveal just how bloody stupid Post-America really is!
In the land of crumbling infrastructure and daily gunfights, the peasants of what was once the world’s model republic are oblivious to their plight. Instead of marching with pitchforks and torches in hand, the drugged-up peasantry sit transfixed, as they use “social media” to campaign for higher prices, lower wages, less education and dirty water. “Knowing No Higher Law Than, Their Master’s Will”
Undocumented immigrants have not hesitated to take advantage of a new law in California that allows them to get drivers licenses despite their legal status.
Undocumented immigrants have received the majority of new drivers licenses issued in the state in 2015, thanks to AB 60, which went into effect this year. That law allows anyone with proof of residency and passing grades on driving and written tests to obtain a license, regardless of their immigration status.
“We’re really just going to some level of common sense,” Angelica Salas, the executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, told The New York Times. “We’ve done in-state tuition and professional licenses for more than a million people. Lives have changed significantly, and the sky has not fallen.”
The California Department of Motor Vehicles reported that as of June 30, the agency had issued 397,000 licenses to undocumented applicants out of a total of 759,000 people this year. By the end of July, the numbers were 443,000 licenses to undocumented immigrants out of a total of 883,000 licenses issued in 2015.
The DMV expects to issue 1.5 million licenses to undocumented immigrants within three years.
California is home to more undocumented immigrants than any other state, with approximately 3 million of them. But it is not the only state to approve a law allowing these immigrants to get drivers licenses. A dozen others, including Connecticut, Maryland and Colorado, have done so as well.
