Recently I've gotten the urge to post a debate, and the controversial topic of allowing illegal immigrants to gain driver licenses is one of America's most debatable topics in recent years. Additionally, it is one of the few I care about.
To begin I'll give a brief sample of my stance on the topic;
I do not support illegal immigration and I believe each state needs to do their part in stopping it. However, with such an overwhelming population of illegal immigrants residing in our country, we all know their not all gonna be found and apprehended any time soon.
Meanwhile, the state government has a duty to protect it's public against illegal immigrant misdeeds. Ironically, one effective way in doing this is through giving illegal immigrants access to driver licenses. Although it may upset and alienate many Americans, this policy offers many safety benefits to the American public. For one, they'll know how to actually drive, keeping us from unneeded car accidents. And two, they'll finally be in the system, making it easier for our law enforcement to seek and follow suspects who happen to be illegal immigrants, lowering the rate of repeated crimes.
The way I see it, the benefits from granting illegal immigrants the opportunity to gain Driver licenses outweigh any sort nationalistic concern, citizens may have.
