New Deterrent Program Want’s To Stop Giving This Key Privilege To Children Of Illegals.
President Obama has long been an advocate of giving illegal immigrants and their children privileges and rights in America. But lawmakers in Georgia are working to push back against one 'key' privilege that children of illegal immigrants are taking advantage of: receiving driver's license.
Under Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program, children who were brought to America before the age of 16 or prior to 2007 can receive a slew of benefits including drivers licenses, the ability to get permits to work, and, biggest of all, the ability to evade deportation.
However, Josh McKoon, a Republican state senator in Georgia, is pushing back against giving illegals the privilege to drive as well as other privileges. Though many illegals are pushing back against the measure, his deterrent program is backed by solid reasoning.
President Obama has been implementing many programs aiming to give illegals rights and privileges, but McKoon's reasoning hinges on the fact that states are the ones who are dealing with the issues so they should be able to set laws and precedents for people living within their boundaries.
Additionally, the recent news that an illegal immigrant who had been deported several times before viciously murdered a woman in San Francisco has given even more strength to the arguments against illegals.
Why should taxpayer dollars be spent giving illegal immigrants drivers licenses and policing their conduct on the road if illegals are turning around and murdering American citizens?
It's true that most illegal immigrants don't have a police record or the long list of offences that the San Francisco murderer did, but opening the door for all illegals to have privileges means that the scum will come into our country as well as the good people.
Immigration reform is needed. We need to know who is coming into our country so we can send back the immigrants who don't belong. And until then, let's stop giving privileges like drivers licenses.
