Illegal Immigrants Don't Deserve Preferential Treatment

If liberals get their way, it will be easier for an illegal immigrant to obtain a California drivers license than it will be for an American-born citizen who’s obeyed the law all along. Why? Citizens must present birth certificates and other identification, as well as proof of residence in the form of a utility bill or other official mail, before they are issued a license. Illegals, of course, rarely have birth certificates, and usually do not have any other identification or proof of residence.

By issuing an official state identification card or license to illegals, we would be granting them a measure of official legitimacy, and we will be doing so in an unfair, discriminatory way that advantages them for their illegality.

How on Earth could anyone think it’s fair for trespassers to have easier requirements for obtaining IDs and licenses than citizens?
