Hispanic Groups Oppose "Driving Card" In UtahTopics: National News
I use to live in Park City, Utah so this post caught my eye. But as to the drivers license issue if you aren't in our country legally, then you are here i-l-l-e-g-a-l-l-y, ergo - you aren't entitled to anything, much less a drivers license.

The main argument for driver's licenses for illegal aliens by open borders groups like MALDEF and La Raza are so that our roads will be safer. They deny that they would be used for opening bank accounts, booking airline tickets, receiving government services or illegal voting. However a proposal for a "driving privileges card" for illegal aliens in Utah -- one that would prove the driver is able to drive yet not able to be used for identification purposes beyond that -- has been viciously opposed by Hispanic groups.
Their reason for opposing the proposal? They say the cards could be used for racial profiling because they don't look identical to a regular driver's license.
The "driving card" is also opposed by other groups who oppose illegal aliens receiving driver's licenses at all. The bill was initially proposed because Utah has become a haven for illegal aliens to receive driver's licenses and there has been evidence of illegal aliens having voted.
The Hispanic groups arguments are all moot anyway as anyone here legally in the United States can get an actual honest to goodness drivers license, not some knockoff driving card!
Bramble released his bill last week in response to an Office of the Legislative Auditor General audit that found Utah is being used as a "portal for undocumented aliens living out of state to obtain driver licenses." It also found 383 people who "appear to be undocumented aliens" had registered to vote.
