Thank God that illegals can get licenses and insurance now. Will sure cut down on these "driving without a license" arrests.
MK February 15, 2013 at 02:27 PM
I thought they dropped the tinted window laws in Illinois ?
Ken February 15, 2013 at 06:31 PM
True. Illegals will then will be able to join the ranks of legals who drive without insurance.

Thank God illegals get licenses? So they can come illegally into the country and then do whatever they want? What about all the immigrants that came to this country legally, worked hard to get the American dream. Why can't the illegals do that. Next, I guess we should give them all Social Security Checks, because we all know that SS will be around for ever. While we are at it, lets leave all of our doors and windows unlocked so the Burglars can take what they want. Who cares about the law. Have you noticed that no where in the patch stories does it mention any of the burglaries the alarms were activated. So, if that is the case, it would seem logical to get an alarm. How much is your property worth to you? Guess this was a ramble, sorry

Leo, you started you rant by saying Thank God, you know they outlawed that saying around the same time they gave the illegals a licenses.
