Young illegal immigrants in California may get driver's licenses

Whatever you do, don't blame us!  Blame your dad.  He's the idiot that brought you here and made you endure that terrible inconvenience!
Most Californians her age can drive. But Esquivel, a college freshman, was brought illegally to the United States from Mexico when she was 7. And California has denied driving privileges to immigrants lacking legal status since 1993.

Without a license ... I have to depend on others to do the basic things," said Esquivel, who lives in rural Parlier, Calif., has classes at the college four times a week in Fresno. "It's a big inconvenience."

But Esquivel soon could get driving privileges: She is one of an estimated million eligible for a new federal program that gives a deportation reprieve and grants work permits to people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. California has the largest number of potential applicants.

I predict that more people will leave the USA.  Why?  Because they will want to belong to a country that belongs to THEM.  America is slowly becoming a country that belongs to everyone - which is the same as belonging to no one.

And anyway, why not? If you jet and go become a citizen of Singapore and decide you want to live in the USA for a year or two, who's to stop you?? Certainly no border patrol or ICE agents!  They'll welcome you back with open arms!
