#ncga: Spanish language web site says GOP rep. STILL on board for driver licenses for illegals

speedyIt’s not just Barack Obama that’s itching to trash the sanctity of US citizenship.  There are an awful lot of Republicans ready to follow his lead.  At the national level, you have Jeb Bush.  One of the better examples here in North Carolina is state Rep. Harry Warren (R-Salisbury).

In late February, Warren tried to fly under the radar while reassuring the amnesty crowd.  He granted an interview to a Charlotte-area Spanish language web site.

Thanks to the magic of The Internet, we found it and worked out a passable translation for you:

Raleigh- Rep Harry Warren has not ruled introduce a bill that includes granting permits for restricted driving undocumented immigrants in North Carolina, although this will depend largely on what happens in the courts with the Executive Action Immigration announced in November by President Barack Obama.
“In consideration of the mandate yesterday (Tuesday 17) against DAPA by the Texas court, I’m reconsidering the exclusion of the provision of driving licenses,” said Warren to What Happens in reference to draft new bill who is preparing.
Warren made this statement after meeting last week with various leaders and representatives of the immigrant community, who had conveyed his intention not to include permissions management in the bill, considering that the new programs announced Deferred Action Obama, we would be left support for his proposal, as he told What Happens in early January.
At that meeting, the director of Jesus Ministry, Maudia Meléndez and other local leaders as John Herrera, lobbyist organization Self Help, and Mauricio Castro, of the Conference of Latino Organizations of North Carolina; Warren was warned that the community would not accept ID cards instead of permits management.
Warren, they said several people at the meeting, then decided to go back on his idea and promised to talk with colleagues in the Legislature to seek support for a project that includes the provision of management permits.
“I’m in the process of consulting my colleagues in the House of Representatives to determine whether the bill would have a chance of being approved if it is introduced with permissions management,” said Warren to Que Pasa last Tuesday.
The legislature also indicated assess whether their colleagues in the Senate could support the project.
“Based on my findings, I will take a decision. This should take between 2 and 3 weeks, “Warren said.
Before the court ruling that suspended the executive and meeting with local leaders share, Warren thought that exclude the provision of permits handling of your bill due to the extension of the federal program of deferred action would cause a large number undocumented persons are eligible for a driver’s license in North Carolina .
In addition, the legislator anticipated that a draft law permits the provision of management; it would be vetoed by Gov. Pat McCrory who opposes any benefits to illegal immigrants.
“Demand Governor McCrory, questioning the legality of President Obama’s executive order expanding DACA, is a strong indication that he would veto any bill that seems to expand the rights of those unlawfully present, as he did with the HB 786 in last session, “said Warren before changing his mind.
The legislator said then that the draft of the new proposal was based on the original HB 786 project, raised in the previous legislative session and the report of the Department of Public Safety (DPS), which was very favorable relative to give permissions management to immigrants.
Warren said then that the new bill being developed is called “Law on Public Safety and Enforcement Act 2015” and thought present in late February or early March.

(“Permissions management” appears to be the literal translation for what we know as “driver licenses.”)  Basically, Warren told the amnesty crowd that he was interested in building on last session’s HB 786 — which set up a procedure for temporary driving permits for illegal aliens.  The Rowan County Republican says his next moves will be dictated by what happens in the courts — if anything — over Obama’s amnesty decree.  


According to the Spanish language site, Warren is being cheered on by his Latino amnesty allies to push for full-blown driver licenses — as opposed to the temporary permits in last year’s legislation.

Keep it up, guys.  Between this kind of stuff, corporate welfare, and trying to raise the gas tax, you guys are determined to send the GOP the way of the dinosaurs.

  1. Of course they want drivers licenses – because the point of all this is to be able to vote, and as soon as possible!

    Why doesn’t DMV issue voter registration forms only AFTER an applicant attests in writing to being a citizen?

  2. Harry Warren is an undocumented Democrat. He needs to be primaried and booted out of office. Amnesty Amigos like him are destroying the Republican brand.

    In fact, there needs to be a two pronged effort to take out Warren. The principle challenge would be a conservative in the primary, and if that fails, an independent conservative in the general election. Whatever it takes, get this guy G-O-N-E.

  3. According to all the calls on this site for primary opponents for current officeholders, by my calculations there are not enough legal residents of North Carolina to file for all these seats. I’m thinking we are going to have to bring in some undocumented candidates to run against the current crop.

    Where were the primary challengers this past election cycle? That is the question.

  4. You might look through the Arabic language websites too, as Muslim immigration into the US has soared under Obama:


    I am sure ISIL appreciates the efforts of people like Harry Warren, Mitch McConnell, and Barack Hussein Obama. It will make attacking targets in the US so much easier for them. And yes, it makes it easier to make sure you get your car bomb in place when you don’t have to worry about being pulled over in a license check.

  5. These people are here, at least in part because Americans are offering them jobs and money which they cannot get in their country. We talk about sending them back but we only have a budget to do that for about 4% of that population. Therefore they are on our roads. We should at least get them certified to be on our roads so that everyone is safer.

    1. – The “why” they come illegally doesnt really matter, and those Americans who hire them are rule-breaking too – cheating crooks that warp those markets. There’s a lot of room for making that kind of thing less attractive and harder to engage in too.

      – We dont need to engage in any grand, expensive deporting campaign. Just actually detain and deport those we “do” come across, and impose increasing penalties against repeat offenders. Right now there are essentially zero consequences to being here illegally, but there should be.

      If there needs to be a budget-item increase to handle this “actual” federal government responsibility, that’s fine. There’s plenty of wasted money in the budget now we can easily divert to a true priority.

      – “Therefore they are on our roads. We should at least get them certified to be on our roads so that everyone is safer.”

      – The state’s “certification” doesnt make us actually safer. Illegal aliens who are bad drivers are still going to be on the roads, license or not… authorizations from the state dont seem to be much of a priority for them.

      Legitimizing illegal aliens with licenses is simply enabling and assisting in their poor behavior – there’s no reason I can see for them to receive any special consideration for being here illegally. They have a legal situation that needs resolution – not made easier or more comfortable. It’s a bad basis for policy and does nothing to remedy the actual problem.

    2. That is like saying a bank robber has already robbed the bank, so why not let him keep the money he already has and give him amnesty for the actual bank robbery. Of course if we did that, it would encourage a lot more bank robbery.

      The same is true with illegal entry into the US. As long as we coddle illegal aliens, give them amnesty and let them get the goodies, we are just encouraging more to pour in. The issue is discouraging this behavior from those still in Mexico, or wherever, as it is punishing those who have already broken the law. If we send the signal that there is no penalty for breaking and entering into the US, then we get a lot more of it. If we get tough as nails, then we discourage it.

      As to costs for illegal aliens, it will cost a heck of a lot less to round ’em up and move ’em out than it will to provide them with education, food stamps, public housing, medical care, refundable tax credits etc. like we do now.

      1. No, it is like the banker inviting George to come into his bank and take money not belonging to him.
        Then the bank customer asking the police to arrest George and not the banker.
        Finally, the police are so strapped for funds, they don’t have the budget to go do the law enforcement.
        Your comment on how much it costs to round them up and send them away neglects to consider the return, again and again, of many of this population.

        1. Using that analogy, I’d think giving out drivers licenses would be more akin to the bank’s board of directors stepping in to decide that since their banker and George are going to have this arrangement – where George steals and the banker lets him – how about they just go ahead and give George his own set of keys to the front door and the vault?

          They’ll save money on security, and their security guard can focus his attention on more important matters like keeping the lobby plants watered, saying “Good morning!” to every customer, and making sure the pens stay attached to those little chains.

          Meanwhile, they’ll tell all their other bank customers that they’re pretty sure George is a really nice guy, he probably wont take too much, and really… only meanie jerks dont like George. 🙂

        2. In your scenario, the banker would be colluding in bank fraud, and both should be arrested. It is the same with illegal aliens. Both the illegals and those who assist them should be arrested and punished. Just as in a bank robbery the victims would be bank shareholders and depositors. In ilegal immigration, it is the American citizens who are the victims.

          The US, as a country has NEVER invited the illegals in. Our laws speak for themselves on that.

    1. Harry Warren was at a meeting of the state Republican Executive Committee last year when one of the members tried to introduce a resolution opposing amnesty for illegal aliens. As this did not have enough advance notice, it required a supermajority to be considered. Harry Warren was one of those doing all he could to keep this resolution from being voted on.

      From that it is clear that Harry Warren is an all-out amigo of illegal aliens and amnesty. I hope NCFIRE is working on getting a primary opponent and doing some advertising to cut the cancer named Harry Warren out of the legislature in the next primary.

  6. Have you noticed over the years your insurance premiums increase to accommodate uninsured and underinsured drivers? In 1997 my car sustained damage due to an undocumented (illegal alien) who lost control of the car he was illegally driving. I was out $500 so my car could be repaired. I get riled up everyday knowing if I don’t pay I can go to jail but they get off scott free.

  7. Viva los GOP the new freight train to citizenship!!! Arriva Arrriva!!! Spread the word. If we don’t allow amnesty how can I, or the GOP stay in the majority. Come on think big tent with no borders. It’s the best thing (for me, for you, not so much, but we really don’t care about you.) Arriva!!! Arrriva!!!!.
