Giving illegal aliens driver’s licenses is like giving a gun along with the keys to the front door of a bank to a habitual bank robber. What will happen? He’ll keep coming back to rob the bank. Who pays? Not the president of the bank! You do! You pay in higher interest rates or whatever it takes to cover the cost of the robberies.
Bakit natin bigyan ng Driver License ang mga illegal samantalang wala silang permanent address.Kung nabanga ka ng mga iyan at wala silang insurance papano sila hahabulin at saka ano ang financial capabilities nila na magbayad.Idemanda mo nga sila kahit manalo pa sa kaso ano ang magagawa mo kapag wala silang maibayad.Nasubukan ko ng nabanga ng driver na walang lisensya at ako ang naperwesio dahil wala siyang insurance.
Undocumented alien are demanding that the U.S. government halt immigration raids and that Congress pass laws to legalize them. Hundreds of thousands of rowdy illegal aliens flooded the streets of major cities last year demanding amnesty and other rights, while threatening to shut down streets and launch economic boycotts. They burned U.S. flags and wielded racist, anti-American signs.
Americans are sick of illegal immigration–their crimes against Americans and their Mexico-loving anchor babies as well the billions these foreigners steal from hard-working Americans.
Overpopulation, congestion, urban sprawl, crumbling infrastructure, overcrowded schools, inadequate healthcare, crime, pollution, vanishing farm land and green space, diminishing resources, lack of affordable housing, depressed wages, increased tax burdens, the balkanization of our communities and the overall decline in our quality of life are all the result of unconstrained illegal immigration.
Any scheme to give legal status or amnesty to 15-30 million illegal aliens would pour gasoline on a blazing fire and destroy this nation. American citizens are not going to watch their citizenship, sovereignty, and rule of law go down the drain because of the efforts of crazed anti-American, pro-illegal aliens, and “cheap labor” fanatics.
Our Constitution starts out with, ‘We The People.’ It does not say, ‘we the politicians’ or ‘we the special interests’ or ‘we the illegal aliens.’ … That means that this country belongs to us and nobody else. We The People will not be intimidated into surrender. Americans have spoken…NO Amnesty! NO Guestworkers!! Illegals Go Home!!
Consider the fact that giving illegal aliens a driver’s license will allow them to integrate into society and get jobs. And that’s different from reality , Illegal immigrants are already driving on our roads to their jobs, to stores, to church, etc.by letting them drive, you make them available to get any job that requires them to drive. And there are plenty of employers who hire illegals to drive even if they don’t have a driver’s license. That will allow them to take jobs American citizens and legal aliens should have.
12 million illegal immigrants are taking jobs from Americans by giving them a driver’s license, you make the criminal element among them mobile. So if they don’t have licenses they’re just going to stay hidden inside the houses, apartments and trailers that they live in.
Hindi ako tutol diyan sa immigration dahil immigrant din ako,kaya lang dapat ay dumaan sila sa tamang proseso.Kung papayagan ang illegal immigration na iyan ay magkakagulo na talaga dito sa America.Kaya sila nagpupunta dito ay sa dahilang makapagtrabaho wala akong tutol diyan dahil lahat talaga ang hinahanap ay trabaho.Ang masama nga lang itong mga TNT ang sanhi kung bakit nagiging mababa na ang mga pasahod ng mga employer dahil binabargain nila sa cheap labor.Syempre ang kukunin nila ay kung saan sila makatipid kaya karamihan mas nauuna pang nakakakuha ng trabaho ang mga TNT kesa sa legal immigrant.
Pero kung bigyan mo ng mga driver license iyan,papano na kung nakabanga sila,kawawa naman ang mabanga nila dahil kapag medyo na may kasong reckless imprudence ay tatakbo na ang mga iyan at saan sila hahanapin? Anong ari-arian nila ang pweding habulin?
Filipinos indicted for forced labor, visa fraud.
LOS ANGELES — Four Filipinos have been indicted here last week with conspiracy to commit federal forced labor and human trafficking violations. The charge carries a penalty of up to 10 years in federal prison. Three of the defendants – Evelyn Pelayo, 51, Rodolfo Demafeliz, 39, and Rolleta Riazon, 28 – were arrested and charged last April in connection with an alleged scheme involving the recruitment of workers in the Philippines to work in two residential elder care facilities in Long Beach in exchange for payment of the recruits’ travel expenses and continued stay in the U.S.
Darwin Padolina, 56, Pelayo’s husband, was named defendant in the superseding indictment issued by a federal grand jury on June 5, Thursday. Pelayo, a resident of Long Beach, owns the two elder care facilities where the victims allegedly were forced to work. Demafeliz, with Riazon assisting him, arranged for aliens to enter the United States fraudulently, often under the pretense of participating in martial arts events. Demafeliz and Riazon are residents of the Philippines.
The three remain in custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles. Padolina is expected to surrender to federal authorities this week.Demafeliz is charged with two counts of bringing in an alien for financial gain, while Riazon is charged with aiding and abetting him; both defendants face a mandatory three-year sentence. Pelayo is charged with two counts of harboring illegal aliens, two counts of forced labor, two counts of seizing passports and two counts of human trafficking. If convicted of all the charges, Pelayo faces a statutory maximum sentence of 140 years in federal prison.
According to court documents filed in this case, victims were recruited from the Philippines with promises of employment in the U.S. But, upon arrival, they were forced to work 24 hours a day to “repay” the defendants for bringing them into the country.
During the course of the investigation, agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) identified three victims who were working at the two elder care facilities; an additional three victims were found when the facilities were shut down. According to the indictment, the victims were forced to work 24 hours a day, everyday, with about half of their meager wages being retained by Pelayo to pay off their smuggling fees.
Pelayo recruited potential workers in the Philippines with the promise of legitimate work in her facilities, according to the court documents. Once the victims agreed, Pelayo contacted Demafeliz, who is a Taekwondo martial arts instructor. After giving some training, Demafeliz would enter “students” into American Taekwondo tournaments as a ruse to obtain visas so they could enter the United States. Once in the U.S., according to the indictment, the victims were brought to Pelayo’s facilities, where Pelayo took away their passports and gave them strict instructions to not speak to family members of the elderly patients and not to fraternize with their co-workers.
Pelayo allegedly threatened victims by vowing to falsely accuse them of crimes should they try to leave, and threatened to contact police and immigration officials who she said would deport the victims.
Salvador Hernandez, assistant director in charge of the FBI in Los Angeles, said in a statement: “The defendants named in the indictment are alleged to have lured foreign nationals to the U.S. with promises of employment and a better quality of life, then turned a profit by overworking and threatening victims repeatedly. Members of the Los Angeles Human Trafficking Task Force will continue to investigate groups that engage in the buying and selling of people, and to educate our communities in how to recognize and report this deplorable crime.”
In another development, a former office manager for a leading accounting firm here has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for visa fraud. Her alleged accomplice, a recruiter at an employment agency, was also indicted in connection with the scheme.
Illuminada “Nida” Quenga, 52, former office manager of Simpson and Simpson, was sentenced last week in Santa Ana by U.S. District Court Judge James Selna for attempting to obtain employment visas for more than 120 Filipino aliens whom she falsely claimed were coming to the United States to work for the firm.
Quenga was indicted in August 2007 on five counts of visa fraud following an investigation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Document and Benefit Fraud Task Force in Los Angeles, with assistance provided by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the U.S. Department of Labor-Office of Inspector General, and the California Employment Development Department.
Quenga’s alleged accomplice, Dory Ocampo, 36, of BRJ Professional Service, prepared the fraudulent visa petitions and collected the fees from the prospective alien workers, according to investigators. Ocampo fled the country shortly following her indictment and is believed to be hiding in the Philippines.
According to court documents, for three years beginning in January 2000, Quenga signed off on employment visa petitions for the Filipino nationals, purportedly for employment at Simpson and Simpson. Owners of the accounting firm subsequently told investigators none of the positions existed, none of the aliens were ever employed, and Quenga had no authority to petition for alien workers on the company’s behalf.
The USCIS’s California Service Center (CSC) first detected improprieties with petitions involving Simpson and Simpson in 2003. The cases were referred to officers with the Center Fraud Detection Operations who reviewed the fraudulent filings, which spanned a two-year period. The Center’s officers worked closely with ICE agents to prepare the case for prosecution.During the course of the probe, the women’s alien “clients” told agents they paid from $4,000 to $7,000 to receive approved employment visas. The aliens said it was made clear the money was to secure a fraudulent visa enabling them to stay in the U.S.
As for the Ocampo and Quenga’s “clients,” USCIS moved to revoke any visas granted to aliens who were complicit in the scheme and denied those fraudulent visa petitions that had not yet been adjudicated.“Quite simply, America’s immigration system is not for sale,” Robert Schoch, special agent in charge for the ICE office of investigations in Los Angeles, said in a statement. “ICE is working closely with its federal and state partners to ensure that those who seek to enrich themselves by compromising the integrity of the visa process pay the price for their crimes.”
Issuing driver license to illegal aliens which do not designate the holder’s legal residency status is profoundly bad policy and worse politics. government should not deliberately and willfully assist people in committing fraud. Anyone who does not understand the many ways in which possession of a valid DL assists in many forms of fraud is not bright enough to be President.
Definitely a big NO! See, Barack has no sense of what is not acceptable, right or wrong for the publics.
Hindi ako nang-aapi, e karamihan nga sa aliens (mostly Latinos) na nakikita ko ay hindi makaintindi ng Inglis. Paano, ang driving nila, dun na lang ba sa red and green signals ang kanilang aantabayanan. Alangan naman na pati road, streets and highways information ay i-translate para sa kanila. Ang buhay ng iba at buhay mismo ng mga aliens ay nasa bingit ng kamatayan palagi pag ganyan.
Idiot promise/proposal of an elite black trying hard to get the Latino votes.
The on-going imbroglio on illegal immigrants will be a big issue in the ensuing presidential campaign. We will see how McCain and Obama will tackle this thorny issue. For one, McCain has already voted to legalize immigrants as pursued and recommended by a Congressional Committee but Obama said no on it.
Cocoy, meron akong New York DL, pero maniniwala ka bang bumagsak ako sa Pasay LTO? Bigyan ka ba naman ng test na black and white yung printer na ginamit. 28 out of 40 ang score ko halos zero sa road signs. Hindi kasi ako nag-abot sa proctor. 30 ang passing score.
Pero yung deputang mukhang walang pinag-aralan na katabi ko, P1200 ang inilagay sa drawer nung proctor, perfect ang score. Pinabalik-balik ako sa result, suma total mahigit isang libo din ang nagastos ko.
Yung eye exam 20/20 daw ako e 425 grado nung reading glass na suot ko. May bayad kasing P50. Yung drug test, ni hindi pa nahihipo yung bote ng jingle ko, may result na, P150 ang bayad dun.
Mahirap na usapan ito. Kahit na hindi bigyan ng driver license and mga illegal, nagmamaneho din sila at marami dito ang mga kriminal. Kung may license, kahit papaano’y mahahanap sila kung magkasala. Ako kahit kailan hindi kailangan ng driver license dahil palagi akong may driver. Apat ang driver ko sa bahay na may kanya-kanyang shift.
Sa Pinas ay talagang bagsak ka sa DL exam kung hindi ka magpadulas.Isipin na lang ninyo pati bulag doon ay may driver license.Pati hindi marunong magmaneho ng tractor trailer truck ay may commercial driver license.Sa totoo lang mayroon din akong pulang lisensya sa Pinas doon na hindi ako nagpunta sa LTO,ipinadala ko na lang ang litrato ko at syempre pang kape.
Dito sa America ay maraming gago sa daan at babangain ka,okey lang naman kapag mabanga ka dahil mayroon tinatawag na Peraphy lalo na kapag malaki ang insurance ng bumanga sa iyo.Ang mahirap at hindi icover ng insurance kung ang bumanga sa iyo ay walang lisensya at insurance lalo na kapag wala kang uninsured motorist sa policy ng insurance mo ay kawawa ka talaga.
Dito kung sino ang bumanga ay iyun ang may kasalanan kahit na tatanga tanga ang binanga mo at kinut ka sa daan,Ang titinignana kung may damage ka sa harapan ng kotse,kung sa likod o kaya’y sa side ang binanga ay hindi mo kasalanan.
