Why does Mrs. Clinton want driver's licenses for illegal aliens?
Sen. Hillary Clinton was asked during a debate this week if she supported New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's plan to give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. At first she seemed to endorse the idea, then claimed, "I did not say that it should be done, but I certainly recognize why Governor Spitzer is trying to do it."
The next day she took a firmer stand (sort of) by offering general support for Gov. Spitzer's approach, but adding that she hadn't studied his specific plan. She should, and so should the rest of us. It stops just short of being an engraved invitation for people to commit voter fraud.
The background here is the National Voter Registration Act, commonly known as "Motor Voter," that President Bill Clinton signed into law in 1993. It required all states to offer voter registration to anyone getting a driver's license. One simply fills out a form and checks a box stating he is a citizen; he is then registered and in most states does not have to show any ID to vote.
But no one checks if the person registering to vote is indeed a citizen. That greatly concerns New York election officials, who processed 245,000 voter registrations at DMV offices last year. "It would be [tough to catch] if someone wanted to . . . get a number of people registered who aren't citizens and went ahead and got them drivers' licenses," says Lee Daghlian, spokesman for New York's Board of Elections.

Thank you, John Fund!! It;s what I’ve been saying for 3 days. It’s ALL about VOTE FRAUD!!!!!!!!!
I wonder where all the third world cabbies in NYC get their drivers license and cab medallion??
All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others...
So do we, beach!
For the same reason your husband did it: to make getting re-elected that much easier.
Measures that curb voter fraud on the one hand and encourage it on the other will be central to the 2008 election. The Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of Indiana’s photo ID law next spring, while lawsuits challenging Gov. Spitzer’s moves will be in New York state courts.
Despite her muddled comments this week, there’s no doubt where Mrs. Clinton stands on ballot integrity. She opposes photo ID laws, even though they enjoy over 80% support in the polls. She has also introduced a bill to force every state to offer no-excuse absentee voting as well as Election Day registration—easy avenues for election chicanery. The bill requires that every state restore voting rights to all criminals who have completed their prison terms, parole or probation.
There is an easy way to fix on site voter fraud IMO. As people come in, have people of all colors declare their citizenship at the border patrol check point station. Next step is the LE station for a thumb print to determine is you are a citizen that can legally vote , are dead, and are not voting “again” After that proceed at business as usual.
“After 9/11, the Justice Department found that eight of the 19 hijackers were registered to vote.”
Did anyone EVER hear this before???????
And further in the article it states that libs in certain states, including Iowa, have sued to get the checkbox REMOVED completely.
The 2008 election cycle will be the biggest voter fraud this Country has ever experienced. Is there any doubt?

This information needs to be spread.
How quickly we forget that the 9/11 Commission found that as many as 15 of the 19 hijackers were, in their words, potentially vulnerable to interception by border authorities. So why does this bill not address the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation for a secure identification system? The 19 9/11 hijackers had 63 validly issued U.S. driver’s licenses between them. What were they using that many for? They were moving around the country undetected and plotting and planning. In fact, as many as eight of them were even registered to vote. They then used those bogus licenses to board U.S. planes.
“They had 63 of these driver’s licenses between them, for the 19 of them. And these identification documents gave these hijackers unfettered access to nearly everything they needed to plan and carry out their attacks on Washington, D.C. and on New York City. And the identification cards also allowed them to remain in the country with the appearance of legitimacy long after their visas had expired and their presence in the United States became illegal.”

We're beginning to resemble some squalid third world country in this regard.
Last night the toughest immigration law in the Nation was passed in Oklahoma:
(1) gives full enforcement powers to police officers, firemen,
(2) instructs all schools to perform complete background checks on all students,
(3) any landlord caught harboring an illegal immigrant faces FELONY charges.
Way to go Oklahoma.
It is indeed. Yet for some strange reason both the RNC and most GOP politicians (including the President) are dead silent about the isssue. ...even though the fraud helps Democrats exclusively. Kind of like the GOP establishment pushing amnesty even though the vast majority of the new citizens would vote Donkey. "The Stupid Party" is in full bloom these days.
