Drivers Licenses For Illegals

By Greg L | 3 September 2008 | Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics, Crime | 24 Comments

The Associated Press is reporting on the guilty plea of a Harrisonburg resident who was taking illegal aliens to Ohio, where the DMV offices are run by corruptible contractors, in order to obtain Ohio drivers licenses for them.  That seems like a lot of work to do when it’s still possible for illegal aliens to obtain Maryland drivers licenses.  While it might be relatively easy to bribe contractors in Ohio to provide fraudulent licenses, such bribery simply isn’t necessary in Maryland, and the licenses are valid.

Yesterday I got a news item forwarded to me about the city of Richmond, California where local police have been setting up license checkpoints within the city in order to nab unlicensed drivers, and apparently they’re finding plenty of them.  Since unlicensed and untrained drivers who often can’t understand road signs are demonstrably dangerous hazards on our roads, you’d think something like this would occasionally be done in just about every locality in America, but alas, it is not.  It’s far easier to pretend that the unlicensed and fraudulent drivers who clog traffic court simply don’t exist, and relieve the pressure on the docket by simply not trying to enforce these laws.

They’re simply on their way to pick lettuce, and we don’t want to have to pay $50 a head for lettuce now, do we?

I’m hearing that in about half of the cases or more when ICE does a workplace enforcement raid, the illegal aliens either have fraudulent or stolen identities.  Fraudulently registered illegal aliens in some cases may be changing the outcomes in some local and state elections, and instead of seeking out and punishing voter fraud, we print ballots and voting information sheets in other languages, and allow “translators” to “assist” non-english speaking voters in our local elections.  Enforcement of the law can be so inconvenient, sometimes.

At least they got and are prosecuting the folks selling fraudulent Ohio drivers licenses to illegal aliens in Harrisonburg.  Eight down, thousands more to go, if not more, who have been encouraged by our unwillingness to enforce the law and emboldened to establish a culture of lawlessness that puts our nation at risk.

    There’s only one workable solution. Export the jobs that are attracting the labor. Until suggesting as much isn’t political suicide, there will not be a workable solution.

    If illegal aliens are willing to do work Americans won’t, can we put them to work enforcing immigration laws? Immigration reform? Securing the wall?

    Seriously, though, I really DON’T want to have to pay $50 for lettuce.

    Let me ask you this. At what price for a head of lettuce would you think it worthwhile to grow and pick it yourself, either for your own consumption or to sell to others?

    I suspect that level would be reached well before anyone was paying $10 for a head of lettuce, let alone $50.

    Tom Ridge, your outside-the-box thinking is worthy of special note. We should make it mandatory that some portion of those who have crossed the border illegally be made to help build the wall before their deportatoin is carried out. The sad reality is that those without valid licences have no valid insurance, and are thus are operating on our highways with potentially lethal weapons.

    The more I look into things, this makes me question what is the solution. If our government is doing nothing about it that people would advocate check points as the alternative, I mean when it starts, how much is NOT enough?

    Haven’t you heard the argument, “Our roads will be safer if you give illegals driver licenses”? And as always Americans should turn a blind eye to illegal law breakers. Americans should feel sorry for illegals not being able to get licenses, they just need to feed their families. Don’t enforce the laws against illegals because they are a special class of people and you shouldn’t “pick” on them.

    Don’t you know that Americans should obey the laws blindly. Americans should not ask those in authority to enforce the laws equally because it hurts the illegals feelings and it splits their families up.

    It’s okay if an illegal murders, because they only came here to work and of course feed their family. We should excuse all violations of law that illegal commit because Americans are insensitive nativists, and illegals only want to feed their families.

    I need to start collecting a dime for every time I see or hear that phrase. I’d be able to retire in six months.

    Give every illegal citizenship and all of America’s problems are solved.

    While the report indicates the individual could receive up to 10 years for helping 3 illegal’s, I doubt very much he will get anything but a suspended sentence.

    Recently a DMV employee was convicted of assisting over 200 get illegal drivers’ licenses, and her sentence? Three years. Less than 5 days per offence.

    One can only guess at the true cost to the taxpaying American these people are responsible for.

    Anyone convicted and doing 5 or more years for armed robbery, which probably got them less than $400.00, is kicking themselves right now for their poor choice in criminal careers.

    Shipley president says business will comply with immigration laws
    By MARY FLOOD Sept. 5, 2008, 5:20PM Houston Chronicle

    After pleading guilty to conspiring to harbor illegal immigrants on behalf of the company his grandfather founded, Lawrence Shipley III promised Friday that his family doughnut company will continue to evolve.

    Shipley, the current president of Houston-based regional baker Shipley Do-Nuts, pleaded guilty last week to his own similar criminal charge and Friday to the separate charge against the corporation.

    “This 72-year-old company is absolutely committed to immigration compliance in its hiring practices,” Shipley said. Though he said he didn’t hire the two dozen undocumented workers the government found at a Shipley Do-Nut plant in an April raid, his father did and he kept the status quo. “I’ve been accountable since 2005.”

    Shipley said that if his late father, who he credited with housing and taking care of his workers, were alive to see this prosecution,”I’m sure he’d just say ‘That’s life in the big city.’”

    Shipley personally pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanor charge of employing undocumented workers and was put on six months probation and ordered to pay a $6,000 fine.

    On Friday, Jimmy Rivera, a former Shipley Do-Nuts warehouse manager; Julian Garcia, the current warehouse manager; and Christopher Halsey, the current warehouse supervisor, all pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of hiring illegal immigrants. Each man was sentenced to six months probation and fined between $1,000 and $2,000.

    Dennis Cain, Shipley’s attorney, said it’s true that for the last half century many businesses and individuals in Texas and other border states have benefited from the labors of workers here illegally. And, he said, this prosecution happened to Shipley Do-Nuts “because it’s the law” and because Shipley Do-Nuts was targeted by immigration officials after the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission began investigating allegations of discrimination and harassment of workers at Shipley Do-Nuts. The commission sued Shipley Do-Nuts and settled that case.

    The company is scheduled to be sentenced on the criminal charge in December by U.S. District Judge Ewing Werlein Jr. It faces a maximum fine of $500,000 and up to five years probation.

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan McConnell told the judge Friday that in its plea deal with the government, the company agreed to improve its immigration compliance and to pay $1.3 million to the government in lieu of forfeiting company-owned homes where undocumented workers lived.

    U.S. Attorney Donald DeGabrielle has promised a continued crackdown on businesses that provide a magnet for immigrants to enter the country illegally. unquote

    Consider the risk employers much better to use E-Verify
    Hire 24 illegals and total cost = 5 years probation & $508,000
    and drumroll 1.3 million dollars (in leiu of company houses where the illegals
    resided)…… priceless

    It’s nice to put up a encouraging story once in a while
    Bravo Attorney Donald DeGabrielle they finally spit it out correctly. It is against the law. Frame their statements. Everyone was on the same page stating it was illegal to hire illegal aliens. The prosecuter U.S. attorney, the defense attorney and the assistant attorney. It’s a miracle.
    Pass this to any stubborn employer and tell them the winds of change are here and They will pay big if they are caught.
    After the discrimination suit was settled they went after him on criminal charges.Employers Still want to hire illegals ? You could lose everything.
