Dayton Wants Driver’s Licenses For Illegal Immigrants

Despite being a “strong advocate” for fixing Minnesota driver’s licenses in 2015, Governor Dayton is adding another hurdle to passage of the Real ID bill: driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants.

I always thought if someone broke the law, there would be consequences, not accommodation.

Driving is a privilege, not a constitutional right. Even when it comes to legal citizens. In the Minnesota Driver’s Manual, Public Safety Commissioner Ramona Dohman says driving is a “privilege,” and there are “state laws, rules, and techniques to follow in order to drive safely and legally in Minnesota.”

According to Dayton, unlicensed immigrants are driving on the roads “without training or insurance,” and this creates a public safety problem. But Dohman, appointed by the Governor, says safety and legality go hand-in-hand.

The Minnesota Driver’s Manual continues, “You can lose your driving privileges if you break certain laws or fail to meet certain requirements.”

So when citizens break certain laws, they could lose their driver’s license. But when illegal immigrants who already broke the law continue to break the law, they should gain access to a driver’s license?

Changing laws to accommodate those who already break them is a slippery slope.
