    Drivers licenses? Free in state tuition? Free dental care? WTF?


    Roadblocks thrown up for licenses-for-illegals plan

    A Patrick administration pitch to grant illegal immigrants driver’s licenses has some on Beacon Hill already slamming the brakes on the proposal saying it’s a public safety wreck in the making.

    -------------------------

    Patrick said he would wait and see what his Cabinet comes back with before throwing his support behind the idea of a license for illegal immigrants.

    The report was unveiled at a State House Thanksgiving luncheon sponsored by the Massachusetts Immigration and Refugee Advocacy Coalition.

    Other recommendations highlighted in the report include:


    â– Allowing illegal immigrants to access state financial aid programs to pay college tuition.
    â– Require state agencies to provide information about basic services in multiple languages.
    â– Support basic adult dental services coverage by MassHealth.
    â– Improve access to capital for immigrant-run businesses.

    The United States does not provide aid to ILLEGAL immigrants. So what the hell are these proposals to give our tax dollars to support illegals?

    Get legal or get out....:mad:

    America is for Americans....wow, what a concept!

    We urgently need to stop spending American citizens' tax dollars on people who have no right to be here.

    Gov. Patrick needs votes why else? The one bullet point that you left out is; once you pass something like this you have basically put out a beacon for every illegal from here to kindom come! Not to mention the effect it has on surrounding states. If Mass were to pass this it would trickle over into staes like NH and Vermont and so on.

    2010 = election year. No other valid reason behind the push now than that fact.

    This time next year he will be a lame duck.

    As long as old Chinese ladies can't get a licence.

    And I think dental care for should be allowed- especially for the British illegals.

    If Patrick get's his way Massachusetts will become even more of a magnet
    for illegals.

    I cannot believe he thinks he is going to win votes by pushing illegals
    down our throat.

    Even in Massachusetts.

    He is counting on their votes...which getting the licenses and IDs opens the door for especially in places like Cambridge and Chelsea :rolleyes:
