Editor:

I believe that it is asinine and insane of our state legislators on Beacon Hill to move forward with legislation (House Bill 3012 and Senate Bill 2061) allowing driver’s licenses to be issued to illegal immigrants by the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV).

Issuing licenses or ID cards to illegal aliens is laden with risks and perils. It greatly expands the probability of fraudulent activity connected with public assistance programs as well as identity theft.

It can also lead to voter fraud as voter registration is allowed at the RMV.

The Registry of Motor Vehicles can't keep track of licenses now, let alone issuing licenses to illegals!

Illegal aliens should not be in our country let alone driving on our roads!

Illegals are murdering us with vehicles through DUI's, running red lights, drag racing, road rage, and plowing us down in our streets and on our highways. Giving them licenses does nothing to mitigate this problem.

It is outrageous that these foreign invaders are being given OUR rights and our privileges.

We must not reward the illicit actions of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens by giving them driver’s licenses.
