Legal Illegals Are Still Lethal

New York State's Gov. Spitzer is aiming to improve the driving conditions for the residents there by enabling illegal immigrants (or aliens, whichever you prefer) to present passports and insurance verification in exchange for a free pass from jail (or exportation). Gov. Spitzer, you might want to reconsider if you would just look at this picture and read the story that accompanies it.
Suspects Sought After Vehicle Strikes Building

Sapulpa Police are looking for the occupants of a pickup truck that sped off an Interstate highway exit ramp overnight and hit a building. The accident happened at I-44 at West 55th Place.

Witnesses told Sapulpa Police, two Hispanic males got out of the pickup truck and jumped into an SUV and fled the scene. The pickup truck has a Tri-State Gunite Company logo on a door panel and New York license plates.

Sapulpa Police say this is the second time this year a vehicle has overshot the exit ramp and struck the same building.
(emphasis mine)
Of course, the legal status of the two Hispanics is unknown, but based on the fact that they fled from the scene it surely raises the question regarding how legal they were.

Let's just imagine that they were holding a valid New York license, Gov. Spitzer. Then, at least, the property owner might be able to recoup some of the damage done to his property. But (and this is a BIG BUT), Gov. Spitzer what would become of these two IF they were illegal immigrants driving under a valid New York license? Local law enforcement officials (Oklahoma has passed tough laws against illegal aliens) would be faced with a deportation problem - that being, do they deport them back to you and the relatively safe haven of New York State or just boot them out of the country (which is what you should be doing in the first place)?It's just a thought Governor, but you might want to consider your political popularity if you allow drivers like this a legal right to endanger the lives of your citizens.

Just think of the repercussions, Governor. Here in Oklahoma, we may have to pass further legislation to deal locally with your lack of foresight. Like sending you and your state a bill each time we have to deal with a mess your lack of wisdom creates for us.

In the meantime, New York State has an estimated 500,000 illegal aliens, while in Oklahoma because of our ability to see illegals for what they really are - here illegally - they are leaving in droves. Maybe they are headed to Canada under the false impression that it's safe there for them or it could be that they are headed your way.
