Stop House Bill 328 Granting Drivers Licenses to Illegals
From our friends at NCFIRE:
As you may or may not know, the NC House Finance Committee passed H328 (Licenses for Illegals) bill on Tuesday morning. The next step is for a full vote on the House floor UNLESS we use our influence on House Speaker Tim Moore.
The House floor vote could come at any time; tomorrow, in two days or next week- with very little notice!
We have one more chance to stop this bad bill before it is approved and sent to the NC Senate.
Please take two minutes and contact Speaker Moore using the talking points below (or your own message) at Tim.Moore@ncleg.net
Rather than provide licenses to illegal aliens, we need to substantially increase penalties for driving without a license and enforce the law.
Please use your position and influence to stop H328 on the House Floor.
The NC Civitas May, 2015 poll shows 76% of all North Carolina voters oppose driving privileges for illegal immigrants.
Granting Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Aliens Poses National Security Risks. Unlike legal immigrants, illegal aliens are not subject to any background checks or face-to-face interviews to determine the existence of any national security threat that they might pose. HB 328 helps these national security threats to assimilate into our communities.
Granting Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Aliens Encourages More Illegal Immigration. A driver’s license is a state benefit. Providing public benefits to illegal aliens only rewards illegal behavior and invites further illegal immigration. Illegal immigration results in higher costs of living, reduced job availability, lower wages, higher crime rates, fiscal hardship on hospitals and substandard quality of care for residents. It also adds burdens on public services increasing their costs and diminishing their availability.
Granting Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Aliens Does Not Mean Safer Roads or More Insured Drivers. Granting driver’s licenses to illegal aliens in no way guarantees safer roads or that illegal aliens will purchase auto insurance. New Mexico, who grants driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, is also home to the nation’s second highest percentage of uninsured drivers. There is no reason to think that illegal aliens, having disregarded so many other laws, would obey this one, nor have the cash available or incentive to acquire auto insurance.
