This is not an injustice being visited upon a certain demographic, rather, they are imposing their lack of compliance (and the ultimate consequences) upon others. Personally, I can't thank the EPD enough for their diligence. If careless drivers have the impression that "anything goes" and the welcome mat is being rolled out to receive them, I pity the compliant who may be harmed by the impaired or uninsured.

It's a good thing we get these illegals off the streets. I don't see why people are complaining. If an illegal got in an accident and injured somebody, who would pay for the damages and injuries? Not the illegal. They don't deserve to be in this country let alone on our roads, great job EPD!

You're living in a fool's paradise if you think illegals will get auto insurance. They need proof of insurance to get their licenses but most will cancel immediately after receiving them. Most drive beaters and will walk away from any obligations if they have an accident (unless it's your fault---then they'll sue you). If it is a serious accident that they caused they will simply change their ID (again) or go back to their native country till the heat dies down.

There is a problem that the EPD faces if it tickets too many minorities. The police have to list the race of all they give tickets to. Some organization like LA RAZA will take them to court for racial profiling if they stop too many Latinos. That is why a lot of police officers look the other way when they reach a point of how many minorities they stopped and ticketed.

How about 30-60 million 3rd world illegal immigrants in this country that your congress critter and us senator is about to give amnesty to. These people are here illegally, and they use police services medical services, our roads, etc all for free, they steal your jobs, increase the payload on sewage, waste, and over crowd your schools with illiteracy, they breed like rats, and will ensure that the future of America looks like a 3rd world dung heap like Bangladesh or India, or China. People need to join Numbers.org and say No more.
