States Should Not Be Allowed to License Illegals (Sen. Trent Lott)

When immigrants illegally cross the border they show disregard for our country and our laws. Rewarding them with drivers’ licenses or any form of state identification not only undermines our laws, but more disturbingly, our national security. As a nation, we must come to terms that immigration is a critical issue for our entire country – not just border states. It cannot be dealt with in an ill-advised, piecemeal fashion that will allow illegal aliens from New York any form of identification that would disguise their illegal status in other states like Mississippi.
