The Maryland Catholic Conference (MCC) has argued for giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens for a while.
Now, their “shtick” is that this encourages “safe driving and honest identification.”
What a load of cow manure!
What the MCC is supporting is another way to put our nation at risk. That is right folks, the MCC is willing to put all citizens and those here legally in danger, all in the name of helping those who have broken the law in the first place.
In addition, just because you have a license, doesn’t mean you are a safe driver. Why don’t we take the case of the illegal alien who killed a Marine and his girlfriend before Thanksgiving. Or maybe we should just forget about University of Maryland student in May of 2007?
Why do they flock to MD? Because VA, PA and DC do not allow illegal aliens to obtain a license and they know that MD hands them out like candy on Halloween. Did you know that MD even has special hours at the DMV for illegals? Did you know that Casa of Maryland has meetings in Catholic parishes for illegal aliens on how to obtain driver’s licenses?
Over the last few days, Gov. Martin O’Malley (MD) has decided to comply with the REAL ID ACT. Starting January 1, 2010 the state will begin to require that all drivers prove they are US citizens.
This is very welcome news. Many of us have been saying for the last few years that we need to stop making Maryland a haven for illegal aliens.
Now, the bad news. This does not take effect until January 2010. In addition, anyone born after January 1, 1964 will be allowed to keep their current license till 2017. So, he is giving all those who support illegal aliens 10 years to help change the law. By that time, we will have a new President and he/she (heaven forbid it is Hillary) may repeal it.
So, there you have it.
NB: Guess which organization the MCC links to? You guess it, Casa of Maryland.
