HOUSE COMMITTEE ON TRANSPORTATION
The following are excerpts from a hearing held on HB 2608 which would require proof of citizenship to get an Oregon drivers license.
[Officer] John Scruggs
Police Officer, Washington County. Testifies in support of HB 2608. Argues that the bill is not anti-immigrant. Explains that it is important for a person to prove legal residency to be issued a driver license.
Rep. Hunt (D) - Mexico
Asks if HB 2608 would create a larger pool of unlicensed drivers.
Answers that the problem of unlicensed drivers would not change as many [illegal aliens] drive without insurance anyway.
Rep. Boone (D) - Mexico
Asks how a person could get two licenses with the same photo but different information.
Answers that a person would obtain two consular matriculars with two different names.
The testimony goes on for a while longer with notable stars such as Ruth Bendl and Jim Ludwick and notorious criminal apologist Ramon Ramierez all having a moment to speak.
I just thought it was interesting to point out what law enforcement sees every day. Illegal aliens drive with no insurance and illegal aliens get multiple ID's. That's first hand knowledge from a man on the street.
