Driver's license bill a disappointment

Driver's license bill a disappointment

The recent passage of illegal immigrants to obtain drivers licenses in the state of Illinois is an irresponsible piece of legislation. Claims of safer roads because of the bill are hogwash.

Anyone who has been in an accident knows that there is more likelihood that the other driver is underinsured, or has dropped their insurance entirely. Who will make sure the illegal immigrants have proper insurance at more than minimal levels? Who will check and see that the insurance is not dropped once they get an insurance certificate.

I, for one, am very disappointed in my Rep. Chris Nybo who voted for this gift to illegals. That and other legislation such as the "Dream" Act do nothing but encourage illegals to enter the United States, particularly Illinois. One of our presidents once said, "A nation without borders is not a nation."
