Civil Wrongs

Gray "Red" Davis is going to sign a law allowing illegal aliens to receive drivers licenses.

Whether the sponsors say it or not, the law is designed expressly to allow illegals to vote -- and yes, they'll vote Democrat -- and Davis will sign it this time. He knows his goose is cooked, recall-wise, and he seems determined to go down in flames, doing as much damage as he can on the way out, in a Gotterdammerung-esque act of scorched-earth spite.

Now, if I were a Californian, I would immediately talk to a lawyer and go to Federal Court to block this law.

The grounds for a Federal claim? OK, I'm not a lawyer, but consider:

  • in California it is either de facto or de jure against the law to ask for proof of elegibility to vote
  • "Motor voter" gives any driver license applicant the opportunity to register to vote
  • Illegals with drivers licenses will certainly be voting, though they have no right to do so.
Dilution of the value my vote and that of my fellow citizens - in short, an equal protection or voting rights claim - would be a Federal matter. It's soon going to be time for the Feds to step in.

I'd rather they get around to doing something about the actual problem: illegal immigration. But don't hold your breath - I won't.
