No Driver Cards for Illegal Aliens. Vote NO on 88. by host

 

You might remember that last year, the Oregon Legislature passed a bill which would grant official driver cards to persons who cannot prove legal presence in the U.S. Oregonians for Immigration Reform got out the clipboards and was successful in gathering enough signatures to put the bill before voters for a Yes or No vote in the November 2014 general election. Caution

 

Citizens will have the opportunity to overturn SB 833 by voting NO on Ballot Measure 88, and the result will be that illegal aliens will not be accommodated with official driver cards.

Opponents claim that if illegal aliens could get official driver cards they could buy auto insurance, reducing the number of uninsured drivers that leave their victims with costly repair or medical bills. Illegal aliens can buy insurance now - but, most often choose not to. If driver card holders had to buy insurance, don't you think the insurance companies would be all over this campaign as endorsers and financial supporters? They're not. New Mexico, which grants driver licenses to illegal aliens, continues to rank near the top of the list of states with the most uninsured drivers.

There is no way the DMV can accurately certify the identity of the thousands of illegal aliens who will apply for driver cards. Supporters of driver cards claim to have the support of Law Enforcement. But, the Sheriffs of Oregon and many others from several branches of law enforcement, including Border Patrol, have endorsed efforts to overturn this bad law and have thrown their full support behind the NO on 88 coalition. This law makes Oregon less safe.

It is more important now, than ever before, to require proof of citizenship or legal status with recent terrorist threats and the increase of illegal drug activity led by deadly Mexican drug cartels now operating in Oregon. Also illegal immigrants consistently constitute a high percentage of the criminal aliens in Oregon prisons.

Why is a no vote on Ballot Measure 88 important? Illegal immigration is a serious problem in the U.S. Neglect of enforcement of the immigration laws, over the past several decades as well as currently, has resulted in millions of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. without inspection, a dangerous situation from the standpoint of national security and public health. For example, the 19 September 11 terrorists carried among them over 30 state driver's licenses and identification cards using over 300 aliases. These documents allowed them to obtain housing, transportation and other accommodations without raising suspicion while they planned and executed their deadly conspiracy that fateful day.

Accommodating illegal aliens invites more to come. Recent history clearly shows this.

Illegal immigration inflates the population, further burdening our already-stressed natural environment. It adversely affects the labor market and swamps our overburdened entitlement programs. Citizens are forced to compete with illegal aliens for jobs, causing significant unemployment and wage depression. Loss of respect for the rule of law grows as a consequence of such legislation. Observance of the rule of law is essential for a successful economy and a civil society.

Republican Governor Victor Atiyeh Remembered by host

The Oregon Republican Party mourns the loss of Oregon’s great Republican governor, Victor Atiyeh. Throughout more than 30 years in Oregon politics, Vic made us proud to be a Republican.

Governor Vic Atiyeh

As governor in the 1980s, Vic opened up international trade for Oregon, and managed the state through one of Oregon’s worst economic downturns with skill and adherence to Republican principles.
 
Throughout his career, Vic worked to assist Republicans across Oregon at all levels of government. The Oregon Republican Party expresses its condolences to his wife Dolores and the entire Atiyeh family.
 
Vic Atiyeh will be remembered in Oregon history as one of the greatest governors of Oregon.

A public memorial service for Governor Atiyeh will be held at the Oregon State Capitol on Wednesday, September 3rd at 10:00 AM We will update as additional details become available.
