Ric Oberlink referred to SB976, implemented in 1993, and observed that Sen. Alquist and others in the legislature at that time recognized that California had a problem with illegal aliens and we should not be facilitating it with driver licenses. At the end of his testimony, Chairperson [Jenny Oropeza (D-Long Beach)] interrupted to clarify that Mr. Oberlink was referring to Sen. Al Alquist, and not the current Senator Elaine Alquist. Oropoza explained that she didn’t want the current Senator to take the "blame" for the 1993 law...Someone really needs to ask Cedillo which country he thinks he represents.
Assemblyman Simon Salinas, D-Salinas commented, "Superman was an illegal alien, and we made him a hero."
Dennis Mountjoy R-Monrovia asked Sen. Cedillo directly, "Is it your intent to issue driver’s licenses to those who are in this country illegally?" Cedillo never directly answered the question.
