Here's a radio interview with CA state Senator Gil Cedillo. He's the author of a bill that would give driver's licenses to illegal aliens. The interview took place on a Spanish-language radio station and was translated by KFI:
Radio host: Respect the Sombrero, the huaraches (leather sandals). But, they don't want to respect us, senator, they don't want to give us licenses. How is this bill coming along, the driver's license bill?
Senator Cedillo: As far as the governor is concerned, everything is all right. We are working hard together. We have an agreement with the governor. There are three important points [that make up this] agreement. One, the governor and I want to give a driver's license to all the immigrants that live in California [and] work here, undocumented people, those who are in the process of legalizing their status. Everyone.
Radio host: Everyone?
Senator Cedillo: Undocumented people, those who are in the process [of legalizing their status]-everyone. That is the first point. Second, we want to give the same license that everyone has.
Radio host: So, no marks? It won't be marked?
Senator Cedillo: That's right. It won't have a different color, no different numbers or letters...
Radio host: So, the governor's office is in agreement with not marking the licenses?
Senator Cedillo: Yes, because he says, "Gil, I am an immigrant."
Radio host: Oh, that's great. He should not forget that.
Senator Cedillo: And the third point is we want to give it as quickly as possible. Why? Because outside of the Capitol, there are politicians, radio hosts on the AM dial...
Radio host: John and Ken.
Senator Cedillo: Yes, exactly. Juan y Ken, Juanito y Ken, who attack our community daily.
Radio host: They say they are ready to pressure Arnold Schwarzenegger so he won't approve your plans and thereby spoil both of your [efforts] to give licenses. Do you think they will be able to do that, senator?
Senator Cedillo: There are more than 70% of voters who today don't want to give any rights, privileges, or responsibilities...
Radio host: How are we going to convince them? How are we going to convince the voters that they need to do it?
Senator Cedillo: I think that, I believe that with this new proposal, [which includes] verification, insurance, Schwarzenegger's strong support [and], possibly, the White House's support, we will be able to present a new law that will be acceptable for all Californians.
Maybe this is all Cedillo's imagination, or some kind of a ploy on his part.
But, if Schwarzenegger is indeed working to give driver's license to illegal aliens, he needs to either stop it or be recalled.
Please contact Schwarzenegger and politely let him know what you think:
I called Schwarzenegger's office recently, and I was given information that I don't entirely trust. I tend to think Cedillo's comments are more in line with what's actually happening.
