ILLEGALS WITH DRIVER’S
By Chuck Wells
The Department of Motor
Vehicles is going through their 10 million records of driver’s
licenses to see if our information is the same as is recorded
with the Social Security Administration. 112,000 records did not
match so far and that has the immigrant do-gooder people upset.
The immigrant rights people staged a demonstration in Albany
whining that “Suddenly we’re criminalizing immigrants regardless
of their status” says Gouri Sadhwani, executive director of the
New York Civic Participation Project. So checking someone’s date
of birth, driver’s license number, and Social Security number is
now criminalizing someone? If you have nothing to hide, what is
According to an Associated Press article, Ricardo (no last
name), an undocumented truck driver, said he got his driver’s
license with a fake Social Security number. Now he is worried
that he will be caught and lose his license. He says he needs
money for the house he just bought and to send money back to
Ecuador for his wife and child. I’m not sure why he bought a
house here when he has a wife and child in another country but I
guess that is another story. I don’t care what he needs the
money for. He should be deported.
Gouri Sadhwani says: “ We’re forcing people underground.” By
finding illegals, I guess we are violating some kind of human
right according to Sadhwani. I was curious as to who this
Sadhwani is and what her organization, New York Civic
Participation Project, really is about. According to their
website, Sadhwani works for labor unions. These labor unions
probably want to beef up their membership by enlisting illegals.
Sadhwani is also an immigrant from India where poverty is
rampant. I guess she figured we need more help than her own
Dr. Donald Huddle, a Rice University economics professor, did a
study in 1996 about the costs/benefits of using illegal
immigrants. His study showed that illegal immigrants paid about
$12 million to us in taxes from their income earned. The costs
to us, however, for their education, food stamps, Medicaid,
criminal justice and corrections, etc. amounted to $32 billion.
It is evident that they cost us far more than they contribute.
The cost of incarceration of illegal aliens in state prisons has
also increased 45% from 1999 to 2002. We now pay for over
100,000 illegals to be jailed because they are committing crimes
against us. This does not include the costs of trial
proceedings, lawyers, and even paying for interpreters so they
can understand their rights.
Illegals can also sue you after a car accident and if they are
injured on the job in New York (even though they are working
illegally), the can collect worker’s compensation insurance
BURGLAR BUNGLES CAPER
Troy Nunes decided to break into a Hollywood Video store in
Quincy, Mass. by tossing a brick through a window. The window
broke but a shard of glass remained. As Nunes exited the
building, he cut his femoral artery and bled to death down the
street. No word yet as to whether or not his relatives will sue
the video store but that should not be surprising.
