TWO Shocking Stories in one- Republicans Supporting Illegals Aliens and a Reporter With Guts!
Wow! Republicans jumping off the republican platform to grant illegals drivers licenses and a journalist with some guts! I’m not sure which is more shocking..
I don’t know who this reporter is, but I will find out.
He takes on Illinois Governor Jim Edgar who joined other Republicans for a press conference to support a bill that would permit 250 thousand ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS to receive state driver’s licenses.
The Governor keeps calling them undocumented.. rather than illegal.. go figure..
Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington), Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogo (R-Lemont), House Minority Leader Tom Cross (R-Oswego), Illinois comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, and former Gov. Jim Edgar were in attendance.
The press conference question and answer period with reporters was quickly shut-down after media grilled Illinois lawmaker’s about the bill’s specific provisions and whether, given Illinois’ history of corruption on driver’s licenses, lawmakers could be trusted to administer such a program.
The upshot: Illinois lawmakers admitted during the news conference there were “no guarantee” illegal immigrants would be insured to drive, which was the stated basis of the legislation.
Watch this reporter nail the governor on his own talking points..
This is the best tv I’ve seen in a long time!
