Skip to comments.10 Illinois Republican Senators join Senate Democrats, passing 41-14 Illegal Alien Drivers Licenses
Posted on 12/05/2012 5:40:02 AM PST by Steelers6
A bill to allow undocumented immigrants to obtain an Illinois drivers license passed the Illinois Senate today by a vote of 41 to 14. One Democrat voted present. The bill is SB957.
The 10 Republicans who joined the Democrats in rewarding non-citizens who are already breaking our laws, were: Bill Brady (Sponsor), Kirk Dillard, Tom Johnson, John Millner (Sponsor), Matt Murphy, Carole Pankau, Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno (Sponsor), Sue Rezin, Ron Sandack (Sponsor), and Suzi Schmidt.
Two Republicans, Pamela Althoff and Dale Righter, took the ultimate lily-livered approach and just didnt vote on the bill. Thats as bad as a yes vote.
Next time these 12 Republicans are up for reelection maybe theyll be able to find some undocumented immigrants to volunteer on their campaigns. Hard to imagine any law abiding Republican would ever lift a finger for one of these goofs.
These lawmakers should also maybe call up former Democrat State Representative Derrick Smith and apologize. Smith was expelled from the Illinois House earlier this year after being indicted on federal charges. He has not yet gone to trial.
Sorry Derrick, if only you had originated from a different country and flagrantly violated a different federal law. Maybe instead of being disgraced, maybe your colleagues would hand you a reward too.
The bill now heads to the House where it has the strong support of House Minority Leader Tom Cross.
This is going to be the norm. They’ve given up and will do as the socialists tell them. They want votes and continued power. Illegals are thier future.
I’m done trying to fight back. I say we let the dam break and swim our way back to liberty’s shores.
Every fight we wage against this winds up as an incremental, almost miniscule change to our way of life. We hem and haw about something, they pare it back but keep the most nefarious aspects of it and pass it as law. They’ve become experts at it. They propose ideas so full of fluff knowing that it will ruffle many feathers. They pare back a majority of the visibly negative parts, leaving what appears to be a “fair” piece of legislation, pass it and then repeat it all again until everything in the original piece of legislation is enacted.
Death by 1,000 cuts.
Let them slit their own throats, bleed out, and we can try to pick up the pieces after the fall.
Words escape me on this issue. In a normal and just world, would anyone believe our lawmakers would enact legislation to provide anything to the invaders of our Country? Are our politicians corrupt to the core or are they functioning illiterates? How is this legislation not a complete violation of their oath of office?
Not Chicago's Matt "Guitar" Murphy?!?
Aretha was right, he *is* a dang fool who doesn't seem to think about the consequences of his actions.
The Republican Party, the MSM, and all those who voted for the Odinga Regime, have earned that phrase again:
"Vous êtes un collaborateur!"
I agree. I like your famous tag line as well.
Ditto. There are way too many powerful forces at work on a variety of fronts to fight effectively. This nation will not survive as is.
People are ‘selling out’ all over the place for ‘political’ gain... and the ‘currency’ in capital right now are ‘non US citizens’ and those who hate our founding principles. Our pot is being diluted by traitors and foreigners combined..... to overtake and control us.
Getting the votes and the I.D.’s, especially in Florida where one must present an i.d. to vote. Nauseating.
If we allow the system to collapse on itself, we can pick up the pieces after everything’s in shambles. The Left relies on us to fight back, in a way, to provide a straw man. If we remove ourselves from the issues, it becomes a two-legged barstool that will collapse. Let them enact what they way under the guise of fairness, equality, whatever. The cities will fall first, I think we all agree on that.
I find it hilarious that a number on Free Republic are wanting to give up the fight when they’ve never lifted a finger for it in the first place.
Or maybe they’re just provocateuring for the Democrats, or possibly the third-party Ron Paulshiveks.
It’s time to man the barricades and instead they’re crawling in holes everywhere. The conservatives and Tea folk need to wield the ultimate GOP death sentence across the land Jan 2d. Don’t vote for them for Speaker, Pro Tem, Leader whatever the position is in every legislature there is. Kill the GOP in 4 weeks and let us just start all over. They’re totally useless as they now are.
Illegal immigrants are allowed driving licenses?????
That is so insande it beggars belief.
Why are they not being thrown back to where they came from?
Why can’t a nation with a military budget and size of the US end this once and for all by securing its borders? The economic cost, would surely be massively outweighed by the economic benefits of the influx of jobs (lets face it, most immigrants aren’t lazy bums), reduced criminal activity, and drain on public services?
It is pretty much too late.
I’ve already accepted my own countries fate, we have all been sold out by so many for so long. It is tragic.
I completely agree. While increasing numbers of Americans scrap loyalty to country in favor of grabbing a piece of the pie for themselves, the politicians who ostensibly "represent" them are in the process of jumping straight into pander mode. For both, it's all for the short term, because the future doesn't hold promise for America.
Our pot is being diluted by traitors and foreigners combined..... to overtake and control us.
Very successfully, too. We are not a nation anymore. If it could be equated to an airplane in flight, America is now comprised of 50 loosely connected and disintegrating parts flying in close formation. This is not going to end well.
so where is chicagolady when we need her most?
Senators Matt Murphy and Kirk Dillard can run for re-election in 2014. I hope that they’ll lose their primaries to conservatives.
I am afraid that I am coming around to this view, also. We are fighting on a thousand fronts. Young people, the up and coming voters, favor Obama heavily. We talk about changing the MSM and the education system, but that is a multigenerational effort and there is no sign of even a change in direction. Perhaps is is apocalyptic, but maybe we should take the whole rotten edifice down. Let the fiscal cliff happen and don't extend the debt limit, either. Let's see if we can rebuild after the real collapse.
It is truly the path of least resistance, I fear, and while our Founders would be disappointed in us for doing so, the end result requires more fighting and bloodshed under which we would be more likely to triumph than going about it through the corrupt political process.
HE IS DEAD TO ME KNOW.
What these RINOcrats don't realize is that even if they kiss every Hispanic A$$ in the state, all they're going to get for it is the taste of used refried beans in their mouths.
New World Order pukes...
Apparently, Republican Party donor money wants to pay lower wages.
Yes, they are lovers of themselves and not America. "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, ......" 2 Tim 3
They probably found reasons not to vote for Romney too.
Ditto. I also worked hard to help Murphy win the primary over RINO Palentine Mayor Rita Mullins during his first State Senate campaign. He's been dead to for a while now, the last straw for me was when he teamed up with Andy McKombine to be McKombine's running mate in 2010. The ironic thing is this guy started off with the most conservative record in the State Senate, and very quickly became a combine butt-kisser. I knew it was bad news when he immediately endorsed Mark Kirk in the U.S. Senate primary, given that Kirk was considerably to the left of the "unacceptable" Rita Mullins.

Lots of disappointments here, I'm sorry to see Bill Brady, Carole Pankau, John Millner, and Suzi Schmidt lend their support to this bill, though others like Dillard and Radogno don't surprise me. The one that bothers me the most is Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran was pimping for this bill, I had always figured him to be a solid conservative but it seems he still has some of the old tendencies he had when he was in the RAT party. I'm unlikely to ever back him for higher office now.
The funny thing is Ray LaThug's son Darin has been "with us" on all these bills, but I still don't trust the spawn of LaThug one bit. I think he's just "playing conservative" like daddy until Aaron Schock runs for higher office and he can get Schock's house seat (daddy's old job).
This state sucks. :-(
I fail to see how, if you are in someone else’s country illegally, you can legally apply for a drivers licence and drive in said country.
By this definition, I can slip in North Korea, the democrat’s poster child, and apply for a driver’s licence, once i am there?
This ought to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. TIME to do something.
The Land of Lincoln Shrugged?
You can only save those who wish to be saved.
Prepare for civil war.. it’s inevitable. Our ‘leaders’ seek it to further consolidate their power.
Prove me wrong, Please!
This is unamerican!!!!
YOu cannot get a drivers license anywhere in the world unless you have, at a minimum, a work or travel visa.
They giving “a privilege” to Non-Americans.
Seems to me it is now “A Right” and one can certainly make that case if their license were to be revoked.
I’d make it. Then again, I’d drive without it.
I pay more in taxes each year than many people earn, so those roads are just as much mine as anyone else...
Why have the laws if they are not going to be enforced?
We have a leader with false documents so why not.
Will the license clearly state UNDOCUMENTED ALIEN on it?
Well they might as well include free auto insurance because when they hit you they will have none!
Which Republican should oppose Sen. Murphy, in the 2014 primary? I hope that Kevin O’Connell will run.
Ahh, with “friends” like these, who needs Democrats?
Spineless f***ing weasel traitors.
lets face it, many northern states now are gone, IL, ME, CT, etc are all lefty socialist idiots in power regardless of the letter after their name.
It’s time for all conservatives, millions of them to move south ut of those northern liberal states and I’;ll add the west coast too.
Let all conservatives move to states like FL, VA,NC, CO, NM and make those solid red states.
That is the only way now to win these elections for the future and stop giving our money to the socialists in those states
we conservatives need to move out of the liberal states, thus giving them none of our money, watch their electoral count go down and lose money plus we make swing states like FL, VA, NC, CO, and even NM red states.
Without FL, VA, NC, CO the left can never win.
Imagine millions of conservatives moving out of the north east and the west coast and moving to states like CO, FL, VA, NM, NC, ?
Staying in liberal socialist states today is only giving our money to the left and helping the left to win more elections.
Plus our votes now count unlike in those liberal socialist places
There is a slight bit of hope in your scenario. I`m already in VA, so hopefully, thousands of conservatives will join me.
Yes, they are lovers of themselves and not America. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, ......” 2 Tim 3
Exactly right, straight from our God and Creator’s Word...
Mmay people wake up and realize that there really is a God in heaven and He really did send His Son to die on our behalf so that we might have eternal life...so that we might be delivered from this world (kingdom) of darkness and brought into the kingdom of light.
The future of mankind—both believers and unbelievers—is all laid out in His Book, if anyone cares to read/study it.
Communist Amerika File.
It’s best if we let the whole shebang collapse. The U.S. as a constitutional republic is over. Our “representatives” have f****d us and have surrendered to an invasion force that has won without a shot being fired.
Treasonous bastards and bastardettes!
I want to know what laws I can break, that by breaking, not only will I NOT be punished for breaking, but will be REWARDED for breaking!
There is no rescue for Illinois.
Write them off like Kalipornia
Regrettably, I can't.
