Illegals Are At Risk Of Driving While Illegal Or Somethibg

This is something that has the NY Times Very Concerned

Heading to church one evening in late March, a farmworker and her sister were stopped for speeding in the village of Geneseo, N.Y. They were driving with their five children in the back of the minivan. Two were not in car seats, as required.

The police officer, trying to cite the driver for the infractions, discovered she had no driver’s license, so he called Border Patrol to review her Guatemalan passport. Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation.

As it should be.

Under a Trump administration that has taken an aggressive stance on illegal immigration, the moving car has become an easy target. A broken headlight, a seatbelt not worn, a child not in a car seat may be minor traffic violations, but for unauthorized immigrants, they can have life-altering consequences.

Just minor things, like putting a child in danger, often not having insurance, oh, and being unlawfully in the United Stated.

“If there was a valid licensed driver driving the vehicle,” the Geneseo police chief, Eric Osganian, said in a statement after the two sisters were pulled over, “there would have been no need to call Border Patrol to confirm the ID of the driver.”

As many as 12 states, along with the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, offer driver’s licenses for unauthorized immigrants, up from three in 2010. New York, which has the third-largest immigrant population in the country, is not one of them.

And that’s the point of the article, pushing licenses for illegals. There is a bit of back and forth, but, reading between the lines, it is a bit of activism meant to get the supporters of illegals to go out there and push this.

Better idea: get them out of the country. If the want to be here, they can do it the legal way.
