The most absurd (and comic masterpiece) episode regarding licenses was the exchange between Inspector Clouseau and the blind accordian player over his “minkey”. That is until New York State started to allow illegal aliens the right to a drivers license yesterday.
It is an outlandish error from unprincipled politicians. Emergency medical care? ok. A privilege like a license? No.
People should not be able to flout certain laws of a country and then benefit from its privileges. Providing licenes encourages illegal immigration and rewards it. There is no credible benefit to New York in doing this, and significant problems in doing so (not the least of which is encouraging illegal immigration. A driver’s license is not a human right. It is not humanitarian intervention. Extending it to illegal aliens is complicity in violating immigration laws.
