Illegal Immigrants should receive Driver’s Licenses

illegal-drivers-licenseIn the United States, driver’s licenses are issued by each individual state and the territories, rather than the federal government because of the political concept of federalism. Drivers are normally required to obtain a license from their state of residence and all states recognize each other’s licenses for temporary visitors subject to normal age requirements. A state may also suspend an individual’s driving privilege within its borders for traffic violations. Many states share a common system of license classes, with some exceptions, and commercial license classes are standardized by federal regulation at 49 CFR part 383

    Illegal immigrants should not be allowed to receive drivers licenses because they are illegal. They are breaking the law just being in the country. The government should not formally condone their law breaking habits by making allowances for them to drive. Its unfortunate that they get in accidents while trespassing into the country but if the government enforced the laws already made, this wouldn’t be an issue. Yes some people may sneak by but if the government cant enforce the laws already made, why make up new laws just to make up the slack on those?

    Driving license in United States is a kind of identification. If the government permit them to have driving license, it just like the government admit their existence in United States .But according to the law, their existence is illegal, and they should not stay in the country, the government would not admit them. This contradiction shows that Illegal immigrant should not receive driving license unless the government slap their own faces.

    Illegal immigrants should have the right to get a drivers licenses since that will make the road safer and enable government to have them on file. In reality, there are a considerable amount of illegal immigrants driving on the road, but some of them are unskilled drivers, even underage drivers, which brings a hidden danger on the road. Giving them an opportunity to get a drivers licensees can get them through the drivers training and also allow them to get a car insurance, which also protects other American citizens. Because they will not escape if they get in a car accident.

    Illegal immigrants should not be able to have drivers licenses because it is the law. Someone who is here illegally should not have the same benefits as someone who is here legally. It is the current law and I believe it should stay that way. People who break the law should not be rewarded.
