Permit someone, no matter their immigration status, to obtain a drivers license? Are you serious? If you are in "our country" illegally, you should not have the same rights and privileges a "legal" citizen has. If you want to live here, that is fine, but do it legally and stop complaining about what you can't do because you broke the law.

I find it insulting that lawmakers would even suggest that allowing illegal immigrants to obtain a drivers license would make our roads safer. They need to be arrested for driving illegally just like the rest of us. Is this just another way to generate a few more dollars, and get a few more votes? You insult our intelligence, gentlemen!

No. Keeping the prison running means there are fewer people out there who want to harm Americans and our allies.
What's the wait? Pres. Bush announced he wanted to close it. Obama campaigned on the issue. Why hasn't it happened yet?
I don't know. All of these choices are black and white and don't represent how I feel.
