Senator Marsha Blackburn has decided to be the one who finally puts a foot down on the issue of illegal immigrants receiving driver’s licenses. The Republican from Tennessee announced Wednesday she was going to be proposing a bill soon that will ban funding from states that issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.
In 13 states, as well as D.C., those who are in the country illegally can obtain a driver’s license. Virginia, among all their latest unconstitutional measures being put forward, is the latest state to be soon allowing illegal aliens to not only stay in the country, but make it their home without proper documentation
“When I look at the situation we have with immigration here in our country, I say let’s leave the system in better shape than we found it, because it’s a broken system.” said Blackburn.
Senator Blackburn is hoping that by yanking the federal funding, states will be incentivized to follow the U.S. Constitution. The reality is that sanctuary states and those that are handing out driver’s licenses are actually costing the rest of the American taxpayers money.
Attorney General William Barr announced Monday that the Trump administration will be cracking down on states undermining federal authorities in regards to illegal immigration. And states that give illegal aliens driver’s licenses are in the same boat.
“When we are talking about sanctuary cities, we are talking about policies that are designed to allow criminal aliens to escape. These policies are not about people who came to our country illegally but have otherwise been peaceful and productive members of society. Their express purpose is to shelter aliens whom local law enforcement has already arrested for other crimes. This is neither lawful nor sensible.” said Barr.
The Trump administration has had to fight radical liberal policy proposals popping up all over the U.S. that are putting Americans lives and tax dollars at risk. Those who are in the country ILLEGALLY should not be given a form of federal ID. They should be sent home instead- if you agree, sign up for Americans United for Values today!
