When President Barack Obama illegally bypassed Congress and signed his executive order Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Process, he took another step toward weakening America’s national security.
His order allowed nearly 1 million illegal immigrants to remain in the United States AND to apply for work permits and other benefits, some of which are reserved for U.S. citizens. Among those benefits or privileges is the obtaining of valid state driver’s licenses.
Some states like Arizona, Mississippi and Nebraska have taken measures to block the illegals covered by Obama’s order from getting valid state driver’s licenses. They understand that having a driver’s license can open the doors to many other benefits including registering to vote and purchasing firearms.
Other states like California are about to allow hundreds of thousands of illegals to obtain state driver’s licenses and one person there is quite concerned about it. Former State Department Foreign Service office Jessica Vaughan says that allowing illegals to obtain driver’s licenses could pose a threat to public safety concerns and national security. Vaughan, who is the current director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies commented:
“There’s never been a deferred action program like this where hundreds of thousands of people in the state of California are going to qualify.
