LAPD Chief Charlie Beck: Give Driver’s Licenses To Illegal Immigrants

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck says the state of California should issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.

The licenses don’t have to be identical to those issued to citizens and can be a provisional license or a nonresident license, Beck told a group of Los Angeles Times’ reporters and editorial writers.

“The reality is that all the things that we’ve done – ‘we’ being the state of California – over the last 14, 16 years have not reduced the problem on iota, haven’t reduced undocumented aliens driving without licenses. So we have to look at what we’re doing,” Beck told the group. “When something doesn’t work over and over and over again, my view is that you should reexamine it to see if there is another way that makes more sense.”

Beck believes issuing licenses to illegal immigrants would improve safety on California roads and would, for example, reduce the number of hit-and-run accidents because illegal immigrant drivers would not have fear being caught without a license at accidents, according to the Times.

Beck has in recent months pushed to make a controversial change to the LAPD’s vehicle impound rules for unlicensed drivers. The policy now calls for the car of an unlicensed driver to be impounded, but Beck wants unlicensed drivers with a clean record to be able to call another driver with a license, who would then be allowed to drive the car away.

The impound policy as it currently stands and the resulting fees and fines are an unfair burden on illegal immigrants, Beck has said.

The proposed policy change has been under increasing fire in the wake of at least two fatal accidents involving unlicensed drivers.

In February, three women died after the sport utility vehicle they were in slammed into a tree in South LA. The driver, Tenina M. Calhoun of Moreno Valley, was cited just a month prior by the California Highway Patrol for driving without a license, but her vehicle was not impounded.

Another woman was killed last month in a hit-and-run crash in Boyle Heights. Police said the driver, who had a warrant out for his arrest, was unlicensed.

    I know this won’t get posted but Police Chief Charlie Beck sounds psychotic.

    1. Ace says:

      And how do you think you sound?

      1. Christina39 says:

        Trust me on this. I don’t want to give illegal aliens drivers’ licenses, let the DMV judge how I sound. And the coroner.

      2. Cherie says:

        Well Christina, I sound like I am med up. I am fourth generation Californians and I am sick of them sucking off of our state. They are illegal, no respect for the law and him. He is an activist.

      3. Cherie says:

        he is on overload and needs to quit Lets help him He is fired!

      4. Lion says:

        Cali is going down first. Look at how incredibly stupid this is. Look at the state of the economy in California, flooded with illegal immigrants who have no prospects or desire to really be American, really learn English and really move up in society.

        We can’t find jobs, we have over 8% unemployment and we allow these third world midget filthy uncultured violent animals run rampant. They disrespect our laws so we erase or ignore our laws to accommodate them.

        Our immigration policy should be the same as Mexico’s, look at what the Mexicans do to the Nicaraguans. The beat, tortured, killed, jailed and deported. And then you liberal morons want to invite everyone with open arm when there isn’t even enough pie left to go around for Americans.

        An economic collapse is going to happen very soon and then we’ll get back to common sense laws. Vigilante justice. My $0.02.

    2. k hurn says:

      The state will not know how many of the licenses will go to illegal immigrants because it does not ask the immigration status of license applicants
      no wander ca is a mexican magnet . with ones like beck , wanting to change laws rules for them . only drivers license they should get is a one day pass back to mexico , one way only .
      need laws like arizona here .

      1. Mary Davenport says:

        You know for people like you this country is on decline . just look at those states that have anti-immigrant stuped laws. how they are. be smart! think!!

    3. dianr says:

      I thought illegals were supposed to be arrested. Since companies are not supposed to hire illegals, where do they get the money for a car and insurance? This isea is ridiculous.

      1. no amnesty no drivers license says:

        dinar hi they steal them ,Eight of the top 10 “hot spots” for vehicle thefts were located in California, 200,000 a year end up in Mexico where they change the VIN number etc . quess beck wants to give them drivers license so they can legally [drive ] there stolen cars lol

      HOW COME OBAMA AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ARE NOT COMPLAINING ?? WHEN ARIZONA TRIED TO ENFORCE THE IMMIGRATION LAWS, OBAMA WAS ON THEIR BACKS …..IS GOING TO BE UP TO AMERICANS TO SECURE THE MEXICO BORDER….OUR GOVERNMENT IS NOT DOING THE JOB….ME ? IF I WAS A RESIDENT OF CALIFORNIA ? I WOULD GET THE HELL OUT…TAX PAYERS ARE PAYING BIG TIME TO SUPPORT THE ILLEGALS….GET OUT BEFORE PROPERTY VALUES GO DOWN MORE.

    10. Christina39 says:

      Lion. I don’t understand it either, but the other states can’t wait to follow California in their love of illegals and it goes belong cheap labor. They give them everything while in the western states, unemployment for Americans is rampant. Try 18% in Las Vegas while not one Mexican or illegal Mexican is unemployed, just Americans. I really don’t know what this is all about.

    11. MIKE says:

  2. KOBE says:

    This is a scam. Someone stands to make money off this. Beck’s friends or relatives or a special interest (Business partner) are doing this to put extra money in their pocket.

    John & Kent we need you on this one.

    1. Jose Dejesus says:

      KOBE, THE LA MAYOR IS MEXICAN, I BET YOU IT WAS HIS IDEA…THE POLICE CHIEF ARE NOT GOING TO DISAGREE WITH HIM…

  3. Clint says:

    “The impound policy as it currently stands and the resulting fees and fines are an unfair burden on illegal immigrants, Beck has said.”

    Does this article and statement sound absurd to anyone else? The PC BS is out of control in this state. Way to protect and serve gentleman (sarcasm).

    1. Christina39 says:

      It sounds like a Joke!!! A joke that someone would make up, just to be “over the top”

  4. jmz says:

    no DL for illegals..beck you and your traitorous cronies have done NOTHING to stop illegals. how dare you run a sanctuary city and look the other way while citizens are harmed and then shrug like you are doing something. Illegals have no place here, i dont care how nice they are (and yes i do know some) They need to come here correctly and make AMERICA their home, not use us. Illegals run the show and beck looks the other way because he is a traitor in the pockets. how many Americans must die before beck is delt with. i hope and pray that the next person an illegal immigrant kills or harms is a member of becks family so he can know the pain he causes. because he is incompotent

    1. Ace says:

      Why is it whenever someone doesnt have our view , you see him as a traitor?

      1. Cherie says:

        Thank You for standing for California please dont ever give up!

      2. Unbelievable says:

        “Our view”? What’s your view Ace? Handouts and get out of free jail cards? Just because they are given DL’s doesn’t mean they will be better, safer drivers. Just means they will be allowed to drive around in a loaded weapon!

        How are there no repercussions for breaking the law? Being here illegally is breaking the law and they get let off scott-free!!

        This State is disgusting and embarrassing!

      3. Jose Dejesus says:

        CALIFORNIA IS IN DEBT , BUT THEY CONTINUE TO GIVE ILLEGALS FREE SERVICES, WHY ?? ILLEGALS ARE CRIMINALS…

  5. Doug says:

    Is Beck crazy? We’re drowning in debt because of illegals and he wants to make it easier for them to drive us into bankruptcy??? This guy has to go!

    1. lila says:

      they will pay for their own DL and their insurance that if they hit your car right now they don’t have

      1. Christina39 says:

        I am assuming that what you’re sarying is that they will be paying the fee for their drivers’ licenses and they will be payng for liability insurance if they cause an accident. That is nice but there is a double standard. Right now, if an American citizen is caught without insurance he is arrested. So there is some kind of weird double standard. Am I supposed to be happy that they have been driving around without insurance all this time?

      2. randy says:

        Christina, name me one person who was arrested for not having car insurance. Cited, yes, arrested?

      3. Christina39 says:

        to Randy:

        His name is John Miller and he lives at 123 Willowbrook lane.

        you mean the ones with our good jobs that stole the ss#? to get the job? No Thanks send them packen

      IMAGINE 210 ETC ETC WITH MILLION NEW MORE DRIVERS ON ROAD . WILL TAKE 2 HOURS TO GO 15 MILES .

      1. Christina39 says:

        Imagine the 405 direct route. it’s already a dangerous freeway. Imagine what it will become.

      2. jtd says:

        They are already on our freeways, since it it legal in LA to drive without a license.

    3. Jose Dejesus says:

      BLAME THE MAYOR, NOT BECK..BECK IS ONLY TRYING TO KEEP HIS JOB.

    4. Mary Davenport says:

      do you have a proof, evidence for what you are saing?

  6. Lee S says:

    As long as the government of LA keeps people like Beck in office, the problem will never be solved. There is an old saying that “if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem” and Beck certainly fits that bill as part of the problem. If illegals want a drivers license here, let them apply for an international drivers license in Mexico.

    1. liz says:

      its funny funny how, when people think of illegals the first thing that pops in their head is a ‘mexican’ there are all types of illegals here, from europe, south america, mexico, middle eastern, indians, asians. not all illegals are mexicans. you guys need to get over yourselfs. grow up

    2. Cherie says:

      THEY ALL NEED TO BE VOTED OUT AND START OVER AND GO BY THE LAW OF THE LAND E VERIFY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Rancherswifecw says:

    what an idiot, doesnt he know they probably never even drove a car in there country! They have disrespected us over and over using SS# get women with child so they have a place to live, get drunk and drive, use up all our natural resouces to the point we dont have or have not had it full ANY OF THEM IN YEARS! and this idiot is our chief of police> Who elected him Mayor Verigosa, the idiot that turned LA into a TJ pit from hell!
    I hope some fine day a good man will come and take over as major and stop this madness!

    1. proudy says:

      Yes for you inf, if they decide to provide the driver license for poeple not legal in this country, they qould have to probe that they know how to drive! They now what they’re doing…what is your concern? probable they would be more smart than you are!!

      1. Christina39 says:

        One of my concerns is the written test and also understanding the signs we must read and understand while driving.

      2. Cherie says:

        lol, and we educate you and yours? Shame on the stupid Americans that are so kind

    1. Cherie says:

      by the way lil Chistina they are not arrested in Pomona, nope, the Pomona PD has been ordered by the City Councel not to, bad for the poor illegals. So ONLY TAKE THERE CAR. They should be deported asap

  8. Gerald Inglis says:

    By Chief Beck’s logic then, we ought to stop the war on drugs because we’ve been doing it way longer than the 16 yrs mentioned in this article. Nothing has changed. There has not been a reduction in drug use. Maybe it’s time Chief Beck comes up with a new solution to that problem, too.

    1. Mary Davenport says:

      I think the solution is Americans need to stopusing drugs, don’t you think?

  9. Christina39 says:

    Beck believes issuing licenses to illegal immigrants would improve safety on California roads and would, for example, reduce the number of hit-and-run accidents because illegal immigrant drivers would not have fear being caught without a license at accidents, according to the Times.

    How would reducting the amount of Hit and Run accidents improve safetly So now it will be just a Hit accident. How about learning to drive and NO ACCIDENTS.

  10. Marty says:

    It won’t be long before it will be “illegal” to be an American citizen in the city of LA.

    1. ginny says:

      Amen to that Marty. It’s getting closer to that by the day. But it isn’t just the City of LA, it’s all of the USA.

      1. Christina39 says:

        It is true where I live. More rights, special treatment and privileges every day.

    2. Cherie says:

      ONLY IF YOU DONT FIGHT BACK

  11. William Chinn says:

    If we haven’t been able to stop xxx, we should legalize it. Not the attitude we should have for wife beating, drugs, illegals, and pedophiles.

  12. Christina39 says:

    The licenses don’t have to be identical to those issued to citizens and can be a provisional license or a nonresident license, Beck told a group of Los Angeles Times’ reporters and editorial writers.

    I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT A DRIVER’S LICENSE FROM THE DMV WAS A PRIVILEGE TO OPERATE OR DRIVE A MOTOR VEHICLE. The licenses don’t HAVE TO BE IDENTICAL. Are the QUALIFICATIONS according to the DMV identical? A provisional right to drive an automobile. What does that mean? Actually sorry, but the requirements to drive would have to be identifcal.

  13. Bewford says:

    Beck must be looking to run for public office in the near future. While the politicians continue to pander to illegals, this once great state will fall to bankruptcy. First thing illegals do after they arrive here is have baby after baby after baby raised and educated on taxpayer dollars. Then they have their side cash business, food venders all over the streets, sending our cash south of the border. Freeways and streets are always clogged, you’re stopping at every cross walk and now here he goes again pushing for driver licenses for illegals. Continue to ‘welcome’ the illegals and all of their American born children and driving down the price of homes in what once was a middle class neighborhood.

    Thank you?

    1. Christina39 says:

      And driving down the standard of living.

  14. Dexter Morgan says:

    How is a license going to keep you from a hit and run ?

    1. lila says:

      the reason why they run is because they dont have DL or insurance to show so they rather leave the scene

      1. Christina39 says:

        He didn’t ask you why they run, He asked you how is this going to stop a hit and run. Many with licenses still engage in hit and runs. How about learning how to drive. You sould like an 11 year old. Hit and run or just hit, is still an injury.

      2. Ace says:

        Christina its people like you that cause the most accidents ! Just that you have a DL so it doesnt become news!!! Go see the facts!

      3. Christina39 says:

        Ace Really goofball. I have been driving a long long time and never had an accident and two tickets in 40 years. So it’s people like me. Really!!!

  15. lila says:

    I rather get hit by someone with a license and car insurance than a hit and run,this is a great idea that will save a lot of lives and will force people to pass a driving test and carry insurance

    1. Christina39 says:

      So if I get hit by an illegal with this bogus license and car insurance, instead of by a person with a valid license and real insurance, my injuries will be less life threatening. OK if you say so. How is this going to save lives. I am curious from a medical standpoint.Are sit and run victims, just left in the road to die?

    2. Mary Davenport says:

      well I rather don’t ghet hit from no body,

    3. liz says:

      I agree with you lila. who cares what others have to say.

  16. robert greeley says:

    They didn’t impound the woman’s car who killed 3 people. So she has a friend drive it home and she drives again. The man who drove without a license would still have killed someone if he had a license. Is Beck brain-dead? He’s the Chief. God help us. Also they’re illegal ALIENS. How about taking them to the border and kicking them out instantly.

  17. Tyler says:

    What a bunch of BS. Get rid of this puppet.

    1. Jose Dejesus says:

      TYLER, I AGREE, AGAIN I’M SURE THE MEXICAN LA MAYOR HAD A LOT TO DO WITH THAT. I BET YOU ?

  18. Doug says:

    Now you know why California is called the looney tune capital of the world.

  19. Jeffrey Hastings says:

    ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL. NO privelages of ANY sort for ILLEGAL immigrants. Everything you give them just encourages more of them to come. Stop the magnets that bring them here; this is just another one. If they think they have cover, they’ll just keep coming in the same or bigger numbers than they already are.

  20. J says:

    Beck is working very hard to get as many American citizens killed as possible.

  21. Marty says:

    If Beck is able to get this thing passed the illegal alien population will double within a year which means more anchor babies, more welfare checks every month.
    Guess who picks up the tab for that.

  22. randy says:

    Why not give them licenses? No one wants to do anything substantive about illegal immigration, so make them pass the test, pay the fees, etc., and have registered and insured cars. Then enforce the unlicensed driver laws across the board. As for a police chief making money from people in CA getting driver’s licenses, I’d like to see an explanation how that would be.

    1. Christina39 says:

      I know something substantive, deport them.

  23. Dave Francis says:

    There is so much corruption in Washington and the state level, which is why illegal entry is not a felony. Doesn’t this to all of us, that Washington DC has no intention of approving any real immigration enforcement? That we must keep paying for everybody who flies in from anywhere, or climbs the fence or just parts simple barbed rusty wire?

    There is only one cure for the corruption in federal agencies and that is joining the TEA PARTY. Thousands of fraudulent programs will be exposed and billions of dollars will be saved. This confronts the rot that has entered the Democratic and the Republican parties, and the astronomical deficit that America is suffering from. Read some unrevealed evidence at Judicial Watch, that is a legal non-profit website. Judicial Watch is the opposite of the Communist backed ACLU; a panderer to the illegal alien invaders. In addition, NumbersUSA gives you in depth analysis of costs to taxpayers and insider news from Congress. Lastly, the positive controversial website of “American Patrol” gives you one-click bridging news editions to the nationwide media, where the truth prevails in articles suppressed by the overwhelming Liberal press. It is only new TEA PARTY leaders will reveal the corrupt in Congress and return us to a small efficient government, with no free crony handouts to wealthy donors.

    Why doesn’t Congress revise the original E-Verify plus bill introduced by Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Homeland Security Chairman Peter King(R-NY) in 2005? The Border Protection, Anti-terrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act (H.R. 4437) had all the stringent enforcement needed? It required the use of E-verify and made it a felony to be in the USA illegally. It also increased penalties for employing illegal workers to $7,500 for first time offenses, $15,000 for second offenses, and $40,000 for all subsequent offenses. It also, caused the housing of removed aliens to become a felony crime. It passed in the House by a vote of 239 to 182, but questionably it didn’t find passage in the Senate?

    The usual stomach churning zealots complained, so REAL IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT never took center stage, with the combined efforts of a variety of migrant, humanitarian, and religious organizations, and other radical groups. Policies that providing federal or state welfare as UNFUNDED MANDATES forced on all the American population by court order and extorted from your taxes. By neither political party voting for the new mandated version of E-Verify or the Birthright Citizenship bill, millions still attracted by jobs and a free reservoir of welfare programs, will still buy a seat on a international flight as a tourist or just cross that border. If Governor Brown doesn’t veto it, every illegal alien who applies at the DMV should be reported to ICE; better still have an ICE agent standing by the DMV clerk.

    ISSUING DRIVERS LICENSE TO ILLEGAL ALIENS WILL JUST ENCOURAGE MORE TO SQUAT IN CALIFORNIA. STATES THAT HAVE ENFORCED IMMIGRATION POLICING LAWS AS ARIZONA, ALABAMA, GEORGIA, UTAH, INDIANA AND SOUTH CAROLINA ARE FLEEING THOSE STATES AND CERTAINLY HEAD FOR THE WEST COAST IF THE DMV IS SUPPLYING LICENSES?

    To some extent revitalized E-Verify, “the Legal Workforce Act (H.R.2885) will heavily penalize businesses for hiring illegal aliens, who are stealing jobs from the majority of low income workers. Second in line of Merit is the “Birthright Citizenship Bill (H.R.140) that by Amendment, will prevent the welfare abundance of public welfare check assistance to the illegal parent of a child smuggled or already here, if neither parent is a U.S. Citizen.

    The E-Verify system can identify illegal migrants and immigrants after hiring and unless they can further substantiate their immigration status, they will be dismissed. This is an easy, none evasive and simple way to qualify an applicant, by inputting the personal data in a company terminal. Then to resolve any discrepancy you travel to nearest Social Security office. Mitt Romney has spelled E-Verify out, as “ATTRITION THROUGH ENFORCEMENT—or Self Deportation.

    Join your chapter of your local TEA PARTY. Only the TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP has the backbone to shred the current tax code and provide a fair and equitable tax system, without any loopholes for anybody. Every possible means available currently and in the future will be utilized to secure our borders, to halt Sanctuary Cities, Chain Migration, but adopt a regulated Guest Worker program, without a path to citizenship. It is solely the obligation of every American voter to check for non citizens registering for all future elections. That every person voting must display official Picture ID, as there has been progressive voting by non citizens. The laws of the 1986 Immigration Reform & Control Act (IRCA) will be reanimated as original was to work. Sanctuary Cities will be banned and official who subscribe to any ordinance protecting illegal aliens will be sanctioned every possible means will be used to remove illegal aliens from this country and benefits stopped. Illegal aliens will not be prosecuted for using stolen ID, including Social Security numbers and birth certificates.

    Everybody is complaining about both parties in Washington, but cannot find a few minutes to contact their Senators or Congress persons at 202-224-3121 and demand the vote for both federal mandatory E-Verify or amend the ‘Birthright Citizenship’ Bill. Once enacted into law a massive exodus will commence, as illegal aliens and family members will return to their country of origin.

      It’s amazing to me that there are many people who think The US owes them at the cost of the American citizens.

  24. dont break the law folks says:

    I think Beck needs to be a police chief and not a political butt kisser. His job is to enforce the laws that are on the books. not try to change them to fit one groups needs. Driving in CA is a privlage, not a right. STOP KISSING THE @$$ES OF THE ILLEGALS!! What about those that play by abide by the law, start taking care of them……if you cant do your job Beck, step down.

  25. Jessica 216 says:

    I say No! hell No! illegals are ruining california trying to turn it into the new mexico… Why is it ok with this guy that they are breaking our laws? instead of trying to help them he needs to help to GET THEM OUT!!!!

    1. liz says:

      i think we all break the laws hunny.

  26. mike says:

    I can’t even get a job.That’s because that aS$hole lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a bitter aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours], [Mike in San Diego], [Mike in Upland], [1stman] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection. I’m such a puS$y dumbf**k with nothing to say I post to myself.

    I’ll use your screen name next, puS$y d!cklips

  27. js says:

    In 45 years America will be majority Hispanic. Different voters, different politicians elected to office, different laws. You had a good run, America.

  28. BG says:

    The comments on here shock me.

    How do you think an immigrant becomes a U.S. citizen and a tax payer? They need to learn English to take the test, pass their interview, etc. You want to run everyone out of the country instead of just providing them with easy training to become tax payers? So many illegal immigrants are scared to death of being deported back to the horrible poverty and crime in their original countries. The majority of them would jump on the opportunity to become real US citizens, even if they have to deal with taxes, licenses, insurance, etc.

    Give them a chance and you can make your buck off them.

    1. Christina39 says:

      I really don’t know or care, but my ancesters came here legally and I know how I felt when I couldn’t get a job because no hablo espanol and I am a citizen and my father fought in two wars and I was in the military. I think this whole thing is a shame.

    2. Christina39 says:

      If the training is so easy why don’t they LEARN ENGLISH. THEY ARE SURROUNDED BY THE LANGUAGE. MUCH EASIER TO LEARN A LANGUAGE BY IMMERSION THAN GOING TO SCHOOL. YET THEY DON’T

    3. Cherie says:

      what part of illegal did you miss? By the way in Ca the testing is so sideways they cant speak or understand they have no idea what made our country great. They only is want in PEROD. I have seen this often and reported it.
      iT IS A HONOR to be an American and if they only want the title, they should go home. If they came here illegally, they should go home, babies in tow.
      We should let the people in around the world waiting in line for years to join the family that is here, that came legally.
      I hope you understand that braking the law of the land is the beginning of the problem.

      Did you miss the part where we stole California from them. If we stole California from them. They did a wonderful job of developing the land. building freeways, high rise buildings, reservoirs, and on and on and some iilegals really think all this is theirs to reclaim. If we stole it from them, why doesn’t it look like Tijuana. If we give it back we should demolish the city first and give them back the land. Everybody wants to reclaim something after the land is DEVELOPED. See how long they can maintain it.

        didnt you learn from history, half of california was SOLD to america not stolen. go over us history. please calm down seems like your about to have a heart attack. lol

    5. Mary Davenport says:

      BG , you are right about that, but iligals pay taxes too and they never get a tax return because they can’t.. last week I hear on the news that there is lost of unclime money. from tax return.

      1. Christina39 says:

        I think you would be a great driver with your command of the English language. Signs like “No passing when broken yellow line is in your lane” and “Left turn May yield”, “Proceed with Caution”. Do you even know what “Stop” means? Do you know what “Go Home” means? Have your husband help you with the posts.

  29. Nicole Caruso says:

    Is he nuts. How many illegals would give accurate information. The word
    illegal is the key. Impounding thier cars is as undue hardship!! What about
    citizens who’s families fought and lost their lives for our freedom and now we
    as citizens have to learn Spanish to get a job!!. American born citizens better wake up and smell the coffee. We are being set-up for a fall and I for
    one don’t want to be a second class citizen in MY COUNTRY. As for the idiot
    that says “give them a chance”,,,we do, they can apply and wait their turn to
    become an American Citizen, Learn English and quit being a burden on our
    school systems and tax payers. Why do you think this country is on the verge of bankruptcy? To many giveaways to illegals but the Citizens, who are the backbone of our country, PAY, PAY, PAY, and then become unemployed. If we allow illegals to get a D.L.’a it will never stop! We must stick together or we will have no one to blame but US!!! Tell are leaders NO NO NO. Enough is Enought.

    1. Christina39 says:

      I am going to keep this brief so it gets posted. I had to live my home town (Los Angeles) because I didn’t speak Spanish and now it is happening in California’s neighboring state as well. Soon we will all have to leave here.

  30. Jose Dejesus says:

    HOW DO ILLEGALS GET A JOB ??? THEY STEAL AMERICANS SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS–OR FAKE I.D.’S WHICH MAKES THEM CRIMINALS. WHY ARE WE REWARDING CRIMINALS ?? MANY OF THEM ARE MEMBERS OF THE MEXICAN DRUG CARTELS……AMERICA IS DOOMED.

  31. Sally Brown says:

    What a stupid suggestion. Let’s reward somebody who is in our country illegally and give them a drivers license. Too much pandering to ANY foreign person from whatever country. A drivers license is not a right, it is a priviledge.

    1. Cherie says:

      please call his office and county super. we must take a stand. I am sick of this too.

  32. hebgb says:

    If God were given a choice of where to stick an enema nto Cali, He would have a very difficult time deciding between San Fran and LA.

  33. John says:

    Charlie Beck is delusional, it’s time for him to resign and a new chief of the LAPD to be selected, one who is in touch and with a shred of sanity.

  34. Anthony G says:

    Hey, Cheif Charlie, it’s an inconvenience for THOSE, LEGAL CITIZENS, of California, to pay ALL the DMV costs/fees, AND insurance, which, by the way is expensive due to ALL THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS currently driving without, precisely what EVERY legal resident MUST pay for! Because they are here ILLEGALLY, receiving BENEFITS which drives up our (already the Highest state tax in the NATION) taxes.
    I was stopped, at a red light and was rear ended by an illegal alien, who could not speak English, only “please no police, no police…”; obviously no drivers license, no insurance. I told the guy to get lost, and am driving around with a ding on my rear bumper.
    THANK YOU, MAYOR VILLA…, CHIEF BECK!
    ENFORCE THE LAWS, PERIOD. THAT’S WHAT YOU WERE ELECTED INTO YOUR POSITIONS TO DO, TO PERFORM. Sometimes, choices are not pleasant, but if we don’t follow/enforce the Law, we have CHAOS!
    BTW, I am a second generation American Citizen, here LEGALLY! My grandparents and father came here LEGALLY, DID NOT take any government assistance, WORKED DILIGENTLY, PERSEVERED and were successful!
    (And they learned English!)

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

    1. Christina39 says:

      To naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews. Some people who are not Jews will say that and I guess some Jews will say that. I agree with you. People have a right to their own country. Look at Israel. I agree TOTALLY with their immigration policies or lack of them. Why is the United States and Europe always made out to be the bad guy if we don’t want a trillion thrid world people bringing their culture here.

    2. Christina39 says:

      Why is there a race problem????? All the third worlders want to move to the US, Europe, Israel, and remember Israel is the size of Nevada and make their new country like the third world country. I don’t want to move to a third world country and change it. If they are so enamored of these progressive countries, instead of ruining them why not change their own country.

  36. John says:

    5) Japan is 98.5% Japanese. Japan does not let foreigners vote and kicks them out all the time. Japan is RICH and has a horrendous colonial history. Yet no one is Demanding the Japanese in Japan, be replaced with a Blended humanity to end “racism”. They only Demand this of White countries.

    This is the common ground on which anti-Whites say we must all agree:
    What is non-White belongs to non-Whites. What is White also belongs to non-Whites.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

  37. Mike says:

    Africa for the Africans

    Asia for the Asians

    White countries for everybody

    If you disagree with this your a evilnaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews

  38. GusVincent says:

    How can it not be a matter of extreme urgency that a free public discussion take place about the global white genocide agenda of force-blending only white countries out of existence?

    It would be if a non-white people or race were being targeted the same way

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

  40. Bob Higgins says:

    The only people who should decide if the “ILLEGAL” citizens of CA should have driver’s licenses are the legitimate citizens (VOTERS) of CALIFORNIA! Let the VOTERS decide if they want the illegal citizens (those here “illegally aka “Breaking the law”) to have driver’s licenses! In other words, respect the laws of our state! if individuals are here ‘illegally” ARREST THEM AND TAKE THEM BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY! Americans are tired of supporting these lawbreakers (and terrorists). They drain our economy, don’t pay taxes, contribute to the gang problem, and continue to ruin California by changing it into a third world-type area! WHY are we letting this happen?!?!? When will the citizens of California wake up and do something about this very serious problem?!?!

  41. e leon says:

    I say deport all illegal immigrants so OUR American Kids can go back and get jobs like..cleaning toilets, flipping burgers, house keeping, gardening, picking fruits…that is going to help our economy. GET REAL PEOPLE. There are jobs in America that need to be filled but we are not prepared for them. Look at the real problem, our kids are under educated, the future of this country is in jeopardy and not because of illegal immigrants, our education system sucks, soon we will have to import our professionals, so yeah, lets get rid of the illegals so our kids can get their jobs and work for our future imported professional foreigners. Also, why don’t we get rid of the public bus system so illegals can’t get to those jobs that we want to get back; we should have immigration question everyone walking on the side walks.

    1. Rancherswifecw says:

      no, they broke the law and are here illegally cant you read?

    2. Christina39 says:

      You are kidding yourself if you think the anchor babies are cleaning toilets, flipping burgers, house keeping, gardening, picking fruits. We do. They have all the jobs working in the banks as tellers, doctors’ offices, government jobs, contructions workers, Caltran……….. Where have you been?

  42. popijc says:

    How does the police chief have the authority to say they will not follow a law?????? What is this country coming to? THEY ARE ILLEGAL SO WHY SHOULD THEY GET ANYTHING???????????? Why not let the prisoners out of jail since they done something illegal, but apparently that does not matter. So I guess anyone can walk into any store and take what they want without paying or not pay for the high priced gas????
