Proving once again that there is no idea too liberal, too PC, too insanely stupid for Massachusetts, a representative has filed a bill to grant drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants.
Representative Timothy Toomey (D-The People’s Democratic Republic of Cambridge — now there’s a shocker) introduced the measure, saying it would “help public safety.”
Naturally, there’s the sympathetic quote from an illegal alien. This time, it’s a 30-year-old construction worker from Ireland. “It’s just been unfortunate that after 9/11, we’re basically lumped in with people who have come here to destroy the country.”
Hey, sorry, Paddy. But here’s a thought: if you don’t want to be treated like a criminal, maybe you shouldn’t BREAK OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS?
The bill looks like it’s in trouble — both the governor, Mitt Romney, and the Attorney General, Tom O’Reilly, oppose it. And they are the highest-elected Republican and Democrat respectively in Massachusetts. But I have faith in my neighbors to the south. They’ll find some way, some compromise, some chicanery and get this through.
However, I sincerely look forward to eating my words.
Please, Massachusetts. Prove me wrong for presuming the worst about you just this once?
