I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be pres-uh-dent…
Via Washington Times:
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Thursday granting illegal immigrants driver’s licenses, in a decision immigrant rights groups hailed as a major step forward for their movement.
The country’s largest state becomes the latest to reverse course and grant legal driving privileges to illegal immigrants.
Mr. Brown, a Democrat, still has several other major immigration bills pending on his desk that he must sign or reject by Oct. 13, including one that would require localities to turn over violent criminal immigrants that federal authorities want to deport.
The new California licenses will have special markings that show they aren’t supposed to be used as identification for federal purposes, but they will allow illegal immigrants to drive legally and, advocates said, to own cars.
