Hillary Clinton backs NY Driver’s License for illegal aliens

After getting caught in a moment of doublespeak in last night’s Democrat debate, HRC today made a political calculation to fully endorse New York’s controversial proposal to issue Driver’s Licenses to illegal immigrants, handing the GOP a front-burner general election issue.

“Senator Clinton supports governors like Governor Spitzer who believe they need such a measure to deal with the crisis caused by this administration’s failure to pass comprehensive immigration reform,’” her campaign said.

Mrs. Clinton’s aides said her statement was intended to signal that she broadly supported Mr. Spitzer’s goal of awarding driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. source

The issue of border security has galvanized conservatives, and is a hot-button issue in the Republican campaign. Just ask John McCain. For HRC to attach herself to amnesty for illegal immigrants, an issue that is favored by just 22% of voters, seems to me to be political suicide. Perhaps she figures she would rather take away the “double-speak” accusations from her Primary opponents, calculating that she can move back to the center in time for November 2008. If so, it is a risky strategy, and one that may prove to be more costly than she reckons.

Henh…in order for her to make risky moves, the LSM has to hold her feet to the fire, and we all know that ain’t gonna happen.
The one thing she can’t control or spin, like she has been able to do so far, is if she becomes the donks choice, she will have to do more serious in-depth interviews, and debate the GOP candidate several times, publicly and nationally. That’s what I’m waiting for, that’s when it gets really interesting for me.
She’s not gonna make the donks happy when that happens.

First we freely allow them to jump the border with no recourse and what does it lead to. None. What laws are typically broken.

1. Well, border jumping
2. Social Security Fraud
3. Theft of services such as medical and education.
4. Failure to register with the Selective Service. Yes, even illegal aliens are required to register.
5. Tax evasion
6. Driving without insurance. In most states it is required and is against the law to do so.

Not to mention “in state” tuition breaks even though they are here illegally.

Sure, give them a fricken license. Maybe Hill wants them to be able to drive to the voting both legally. Well, without insurance that is.
