White House sides with bill to bar illegal immigrants from using driver's licenses to board planes or enter federal facilities.
WASHINGTON The Bush administration today gave a boost to a Republican-backed measure being debated on the House floor this week that would bar illegal immigrants from using driver's licenses to board airplanes or enter federal facilities.
All five GOP House members from Orange County have co-sponsored the measure.
"The administration strongly supports House passage of HR418, to strengthen the ability of the United States to protect against terrorist entry into and activities within the United States," said a policy statement issued today.
This is the first such sweeping support of the bill by President George W. Bush. How members vote on this measure could be the first indication of where lawmakers stand on the broader, more controversial issue of immigration reform.

HR418 mandates that American citizens go stand in long lines in large cities to get a National ID card *prior* to applying for any new job.
No National ID Card, no new job for any American.
I thought Bush just wanted unfettered illegals running around.
Come on, President Bush. Join us in fighting ILLEGAL immigration. You know you want to.
How about coming across the border, illegally? Or staying here, illegally? Or getting SSI payments, illegally? Or... Or... Or...
I could go on and on.
Homeland security my A$$.
OMG, what will the Bush-Bashers complain about NOW???
he wants to in his heart.......LOL.......just not at the ballot box where Hispanics vote
You're an insenstive, conservative, bigoted pig. Aren't you, Southack? Hmmmmm? :) hehehe!
That's why they can get drivers licenses.
Flexible, isn't he?
What drivers licenses do "Illegal" aliens have?
And if they do have them... isn't that "illegal"?
How about no driver's licenses to get bank accounts, jobs or any social benefits unless they do the immigration route legally.
THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE.
How do you know they're illegal, will it say so on their DL ?
the policy in 1996 at B of A was they only needed a utility bill to open an account. I don't know if that is changed now, but I doubt it.
Did you read the bill?
Obviously we need to put a Democrat in office then if that's what you're looking for. I'm sure this bill was probably submitted by one of them....
bump for later
They neglected to prevent illegals from using licenses to vote.
