How big is the scale of the invasion? We just have small pieces of data. Like the six blind Indian gurus touching an elephant, we see pieces of the problems and know that it’s only the tip of the iceberg.
What’s the number of illegal alien invaders inside the United States? Here’s another data point from Massachusetts that, in keeping with the leftist open borders agenda, is allowing illegals to get licenses.
The Registry of Motor Vehicles has hired 52 employees since the start of the month when a new law took effect allowing people without lawful proof of presence in the United States to seek out standard driver’s licenses.
New hires have been placed at service center locations across the state just as roughly 100,000 requests for learner’s permits appointments have come in since July 1, an agency spokesperson said this week.
Officials at the registry said they expected some 280,000 people to apply for a driver’s license within the first four years of the law, with the biggest demand in the first six months. The Healey administration set aside $28 million to pay for the implementation of the law.
I suspect demand will top the estimated quarter of a million well before then.
The estimate however is revealing. Previous estimates pegged the number of illegals in MA as being below that number. The new Democrat regime either knows something they don’t or expects the flood of open-border illegal invaders to substantially transform the state.
While illegal alien road fatalities are a major problem, licenses, and tests aren’t likely to solve them. These are cultural issues. Different countries have different expectations of what safe driving looks like. And dismantling the legal system in order to empower illegals is not likely to make them respect our laws.
