Why Not Get It Right The First Time?
F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. (R-Wis.), the House Judiciary chairman, was absolutely right to put up a stink about driver's licenses being given to illegal 'immigrunts'. While some reform is needed in the handling and sharing of intelligence by the many government agencies that collect, analyze, and use it, the driver's license is indispensable to someone who wants to move about this country. The nineteen 9/11 hijackers had 63 licenses between them. I don't understand why the families of the 9/11 victims pushing so hard for this bill don't demand driver's license reform as well. Let's hope that the bill, if it passes without addressing this problem, does more than just create another giant bureaucratic mess.
