Oklahoma Lawmakers Block Plan to Offer Chauffeur’s Licenses to Illegal Aliens

A strategy to offer driver’s licenses to illegal aliens stopped working to lose consciousness of committee in the Oklahoma state House, with lawmakers overwhelmingly turning down the measure.

Today, Oklahoma legislators on the Home Public Security Committee voted 11 -1 to reject a plan that would have supplied eligible unlawful aliens with state-issued motorist’s licenses. Under the plan, illegal aliens residing in Oklahoma would have been eligible for a driver’s license if they showed their identity and age.

Protecting motorist’s licenses for prohibited aliens has actually been an across the country effort by the open borders lobby as part of an effort to prevent large populations of illegal aliens from ever being committed federal immigration authorities and thus avoiding deportation from the United States.

In New York City, the current state to give driver’s licenses to prohibited aliens, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has needed to block New york city residents from utilizing fast-track travel programs like International Entry, which expedites entry into the U.S. from worldwide airports.

The law makes it efficiently difficult for federal migration authorities to rapidly examine the immigration status of anybody they can be found in contact with, indicating representatives have no other way to confirm the credibility of New York state-issued IDs.

Presently, in Massachusetts, state lawmakers are moving forward with a strategy comparable to New york city’s that would provide driver’s licenses to all homeowners, regardless of whether they are illegally residing in the U.S.

There are anywhere in between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens residing in the U.S. at any given time. The number has continued to grow as hundreds of countless foreign nationals overstay their visas every year and about half of all illegal border crossers effectively make it into the country, undetected by Border Patrol representatives.
