Illegal Drivers Licenses

Or yet another write-a-letter post.

Colorado is currently considering legislation that would create a special drivers license for illegal aliens. No word as to weather this will have some special marking to distinguish it. Colorado being something of a sanctuary state, it's unlikely that anything like this will be included.

It's up before the Senate Judiciary committee today where I'm sure it will pass on a party-line vote like everything else this year. So write the Senator and ask the questions:
Dear Sen. Newell:

I have some questions about the proposed drivers licenses to be created for illegal aliens.
1. Can a student from Kansas apply for such a license and thus be eligible for in-state tuition at the University of Colorado? The financial incentives would be considerable.
2. Will the Colorado motor-voter program remain in full effect at the granting of these licenses? The future of one-party rule in this state depends on it.
3. Will this document be sufficient identification at a polling place or will identification remain not required?

Thank you for your consideration on this matter.

I don't expect an answer.

UPDATE!: I have to say I'm impressed. Same day service no less.

Hi Billll
Thank you for your writing in about these questions. I spoke with the bill drafter of SB 251, and he says the following: This bill does not affect the first couple questions. As for your third question, the bill does not change this situation so yes, identification will remain not required.
Hopefully this helps! If you would like further clarification on the specifics of the bill, please contact the bill sponsor as they will be able to get you the answers.

I'm surprised you didn't ask whether or not this license makes illegal Mexicans eligible to buy a gun.

I knew I forgot something. Still since you cannot buy a gun in Colorado from an FFL unless you're a state resident, and the licenses are marked "Non-Resident" I presumed that you could not.

For the hard cases, the gang-bangers are still reduced to buying from the burglars.

"the licenses are marked "Non-Resident""

The story doesn't mention that. It says the license will be marked "NOT REAL I.D. COMPLIANT". It doesn't say anything about the license being marked "non-resident".

Also, you do not need to be a resident of a state to buy a rifle or shotgun in that state, only a handgun.
