John Gallant: Simple question

February 26, 2013 

Simple question

I do not understand the uproar over the new proposed driver’s licenses. What legal status beyond “illegal” is accurate? This a simple yes or no question: Are you a legal citizen or not?

If there is any injustice involved, it surely rests squarely on the parents who broke federal laws and brought these innocent children into this country as well as any reluctance to prosecute by any level of government, which chose to not enforce the letter of the law.
