I have been boiling up about this all week.
I was not allowed to renew my driving license by mail because the DMV "does not have a social security number on file for me" and they don't issue new licenses without proof of legal residence. So I had to go down there in person and join the queue.
This is ridiculous and stupid on just so many levels, that I do not know where to start.
But I will start.
First, it is ridiculous that social security numbers are used for things they are not supposed to be. Credit checks, utilities and now this. We should all refuse to give these numbers except for things they are meant to be given for.
Secondly, refusing to issue new driving licenses to illegals is dumb. It is dumb because the alternative is for them to drive without a license and without insurance. And then what happens when they hit someone? Jail, yes. But no insurance payout for the injured either. Stupid.
Thirdly, they do renew licenses for illegals that already have one. Except if you can't provide a social, they print something on your DL saying as such and that it is not "valid for Federal purposes". What the heck does that mean? Stupid.
Finally, why are there such crazy queues at the DMV? Taxpayers should pay so that the service can be made larger and more efficient like in Europe.
Immigration is a mess in this country. Either allow illegals to stay or don't and stop messing about and making people's lives difficult.
