THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Thousands of Illegal Aliens Get California Driver's Licenses

The DMV line for your drive's license starts at the border.

Bend Over California
More than 11,070 illegal aliens were issued California 
driver's licenses during the first full week.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles is checking up on immigrants in the country illegally who are applying for driver's licenses to see if they had older licenses under different identities. But officials said Tuesday that they won't penalize applicants whose records are otherwise clean.

Undocumented immigrants living in California are now eligible for driver's licenses under a program that started on Jan. 2. Immigrant advocates say some applicants who previously held licenses under Social Security numbers that were not their own have been told they will need to meet with a DMV investigator.

Armando Botello, a spokesman for the state's Department of Motor Vehicles, said those applications are being checked against the agency's databases to prevent duplication and ensure drivers don't have outstanding traffic tickets reports KCRA News.

"The person shouldn't worry about documents, shouldn't worry about a previous record if the record is clean and if the license has not been used (...) to commit a major crime" such as identity theft, Botello told the Associated Press after a news conference about the licenses in Sacramento.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in 2013 to allow immigrants to drive in a program designed to improve road safety and make immigrants' lives easier.

The state expects to field 1.4 million applications for the licenses over the next three years. About 46,000 immigrants started applying in the first three days of the program.

Immigrant advocates have urged applicants who previously used someone else's Social Security number to obtain a driver's license to check with a lawyer before applying.
