Advocates of a push to grant driver’s licenses to people living in the country illegally packed a Minnesota House hearing Wednesday, at times breaking into tears as supporters explained how the change would affect them.
The move has support from a broad coalition of businesses, religious leaders and law enforcement officials who say it will make roads safer as more people take driver’s safety tests and buy car insurance. But some argue giving licenses to those without legal resident status will make it easier for them to commit voter fraud.
Ana Serrano told the House Transportation Policy and Finance Committee that the move would help her parents, who immigrated from Mexico years ago. They rely on her older brother to drive them around Willmar because they can’t legally obtain driver’s licenses.
State Rep. Rod Hamilton, who’s carrying a bill to make the change, said he initially was skeptical of the idea. But the Mountain Lake Republican said the he since has realized the effect on public safety the move would have.
Public safety officials also think no one should own guns, fence in their yards, and that they should be able to listen to phone calls and read emails with out a warrant….
I can’t begin to describe how maddening it is that any Republicans are supporting this red carpet for voter fraud and amnesty. . .
