The Donks are Pandering to ILLEGALS and Pissing Off the Base

Last year the Republicans in the Senate supported the Shamnesty Bill, and in the process pissed of their conservative base. Well this year the Donks are supporting drivers licenses for ILLEGALS and they are pissing off their base.
Democratic House members can't understand why their party's national leaders are embracing driver's licenses for illegal aliens, and say their constituents see it as a "de facto amnesty."

Rep. Nancy Boyda, Kansas Democrat, said the stance taken by her party's presidential candidates is very unpopular in her district.

"What I tell people back home is, 'It is not my day to watch them,' " said Mrs. Boyda, adding that her reputation as a political maverick and staunch opponent of illegal entry distinguishes her from the folly at the top of the ticket.

"It is ultimately about the rule of law," she said. "We don't give driver's licenses to people who are here illegally. We do something about the fact that they are here illegally."

Rep. Artur Davis, Alabama Democrat, said voters in his state "get that a driver's license is a form of legal status" because it can be used to board a plane, enter most government buildings and conduct most financial transactions.

"The American people don't want conferring driver's licenses to become a de facto amnesty," he said.

If there is one thing that all Americans agree upon, that is, they don't want amnesty for ILLEGALS. The polls have shown that regardless of political party, the people are not agreeing with their politicians about amnesty, they don't want it, and yet the politicians ignore them.

This one issue will have a big impact on next year's election, just wait and see.

Mr Minority
