Invasion at the DMV: Illegals Drive!

Massachusetts has just rolled out a brazen new law that lets illegal aliens into a Department of Motor Vehicles office and walk out with a U.S. driver’s license. Since its inception on July 1, over 100,000 illegal immigrants have availed of this inexplicable privilege, as per reports from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles, a branch of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. According to state projections, the count will surpass 300,000 by year-end, costing taxpayers an eye-popping $28 million.

As Breitbart outlines, Massachusetts is now the 17th state to usher in such a policy that practically gifts U.S. driver’s licenses to illegals. They now share the honor with liberal havens like California, New York, Colorado, and Connecticut. It is estimated that Massachusetts currently harbors about 316,000 illegal aliens.

This law was approved through a ballot initiative during the 2022 midterm elections with 54% of Massachusetts voters showing their support. Former Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, vetoed this bill in May 2022, but the Democrat-controlled Massachusetts General Court nimbly sidestepped his veto, paving the way for this legislation to become law.

As Breitbart notes, “the open borders lobby, aided by elected Democrats, has made securing driver’s licenses for illegal aliens a cornerstone of their agenda to dismantle privileges intended exclusively for American citizens and legal immigrants.” Driver’s licenses for illegal aliens are critical to this open borders agenda. When illegals are stopped by local police, driving without a license is often the initial criminal charge leading them into the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement for arrest and deportation.

While various states allow illegals to apply for driver’s licenses, Illinois has taken a more audacious leap by permitting them to join the police force. Conservative writer Selwyn Duke has laid bare the potential ramifications of the Prairie State’s audacious House Bill (HB) 3751 in an article for the New American magazine. This bill enables anyone who isn’t a U.S. citizen but can legally work under federal law, including those under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, to apply for roles as police officers or sheriff’s deputies.

The bill was approved by both houses of the Illinois General Assembly and has landed on the desk of Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker. Duke warns that “even if the governor chooses to veto the bill, the Democratic super-majority in the legislative chambers can override his decision – potentially turning it into a law without his support.”

This proposal has been widely criticized, with the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police expressing its concern, saying: “What message does this legislation send when it allows people who do not have legal status to become the enforcers of our laws? This is a potential crisis of confidence in law enforcement at a time when our officers need all the public confidence they can get.”

The potential impact of this decision is sparking vehement reactions on both sides of the immigration debate. As law enforcement continues to bear the brunt of criticisms, often unjust, and officers’ morale declines, Duke poses the question: “Is filling the ranks with foreigners wise? After all, do you really want to be arrested by someone with a badge, a gun – and a foreign accent?”
