An Idaho state senator wants his state’s government to allow illegal immigrants to earn driver’s licenses, although the cards would not work for purchasing alcohol or voting.

Jim Guthrie, a Republican, plans to introduce such legislation this month or in February with the blessing of the Idaho Dairymen’s Association, according to Townhall.com.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We have undocumented aliens in the country, and that’s a given,” Guthrie told the Idaho State Journal. “Until the federal government decides to address the illegal alien situation, (the proposed legislation) gives us the opportunity to maximize that workforce while they’re here, because they’re here anyway and driving anyway.”

The report states that Guthrie is making the proposal in part because of a shortage of farmworkers and truck drivers.

    Soooo…. Let’s give people who are known to have violated the law the very second they came into the country the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a SEMI hauling TONS of goods down the highway. No background checks…no references…

    At the SAME TIME taking jobs away from the locals and probably paying substandard wages to boot.

    The problem is the drivers license is the single most used for of identification. I suspect it is also used for voting purposes in many states.
    The question seems to be: Why do we allow people who are here illegally to obtain a drivers license? I doubt there are many country’s in this world where I could walk into a country, much less get a drivers license.
