The federal government isn’t going to pass immigration reform, so as Texans let’s identify and tax immigrants. We need the people driving our streets to have identification.
If undocumented people could get a driver’s license and authorization to work, employers with e-verify would jump on it. The only way to fix it is federal legislation, or a sensible system in Texas.
There is very little we can do in Washington to make sensible reform happen. Even if the president wants I do it, it still has pass the House and Senate. I don’t think its going to happen. We have to develop a sensible system here.
