    a question for legislators: Please explain what will happen when an illegal alien that you grant these driver cards will do when there is a traffic warning ahead that says “Hazard! slow down do to accident ahead” in english and that illegal alien doesn’t read or understand english?…. and then plows their vehicle into the location of the hazard? Answer: try more dead people. Texas or any state legislators, if that is the case, may those dead be one or more of your own. not mine.

    Greg Abbott needs to veto this bill if it makes it to his desk. It undercuts their rational for fighting Obama’s amnesty in court, citing the expense to the stat of having to produce all these drivers licenses for the illegals. Not a smart move by Texas.

      You;re right there. How do you sue to stop his amnesty and then you’re going to reward illegals with licenses?

    They Hand Out Drivers Licenses to Non-citizens Like They Were Candy

    Then cover-up the driving without insurance, the DUI surges and other related crimes.

    We need to make sure this doesn’t happen.
    Texas will soon be just like Illinois.
    We have a crap load of people who call themselves Republicans in Austin and you’d never know it.

    If they were deported lke they should have been there would not be a problem. If they broke our laws to get here, why would they obey any laws now? Lets all give them what they need to take over. We are the nice guys and nice guys finish last. Wake up, wise up.

    Make roads safer? Don’t illegals who drive actually drive safer because they don’t have a license and are going to do everything they can not to be stopped? But then, when it comes to pandering to the Latino community for votes, common sense goes out the window.

      Does this mean they will have to have insurance to drive? Does citizenship mean nothing anymore?
