Dear Editor:
There's great politicking about giving illegal immigrants driver license particularly on recent Democratic Presidential candidates debate. A driver license is a license to drive safely according to traffic laws for the holder, it's not a license to work. Denying a license will certainly make many illegal immigrants life more difficult but it won't stop them driving on the roads. The American public will loose on unsafe roads with uninsured drivers. It's time for us to decide whether we want to recoqnize these illegal immigrants' positive contribution by giving them opportunity for legal status or make their life more miserable but it still won't serve our objective to secure our roads and nation. And please always keep in mind that terrorists can be US citizens or foreigners with legal statuses, remember Columbine, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech and others tragedies. It's sad and foolish to think that only illegals can be the bad guys here. Americans will face more invasion of privacy, big brother government and surveillance society, "show me your papers" police state. Global peace can only be achieved by dialogues and good will from us and others to achieve a free and civilized global society and most importantly we must end our "political correctness" about Islamic regimes who always use religion to promote and incite intolerance, hatred, persecution and discrimination on the minorities which in turn create conflicts and wars. It's sad that many use faiths to justify hate not love, tolerance and understanding. Say no to Big Brotherism, say yes to peace, equal rights and freedom.
