Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

California immigration politics

Matt Welch writes in the Los Angeles Daily News that whether or not illegal aliens should receive a California drivers license may become an issue during the recall election. Davis said in July that he would support it (after having vetoed it last year). Also see this LA Times op-ed by Ed Erler and Scot Zentner of a few days ago; they claim that this is a veiled bid for amnesty. Also note that Arnold supported Proposition 187 in 1994. It would have prevented illegals from receiving some social services, including education, but it was overturned by a court. The Davis supporters, and Democrats in California will make an issue of this, especially since former Governor Pete Wilson is a close advisor to Arnold.
