Illegal immigrant licenses won't make us safer

March 29, 2013

Exactly what makes Del. Jolene Ivey believe that issuing a license to illegal immigrants in Maryland will guarantee that "they have car insurance" or that "they know not to flee when they're getting pulled over or in an accident?" ("Senate approves two-tier licenses," March 26).

Certainly it won't. They don't even have to be able to read, speak or write English. The state must provide an interpreter to enable them to pass the license test. Is that interpreter going to ride with them forever to interpret signs or a law enforcement officer's direction?

Of course not. This is just another benefit offered to illegals here in the sanctuary state of Maryland.
