As snow fell on the state of Minnesota causing hazardous road conditions, Minnesota Democrats' top "road safety" priority was granting state-issued driver's licenses to illegal aliens. Senate Democrats passed HF 4 early in the morning after an extremely long floor debate.
The bill creates a driver's license that is void of an identifier about the recipient's legal status in an effort to avoid the stigma. With same-day registration in Minnesota elections, this new bill will undoubtedly lead to more voter fraud.
Republicans offered several amendments to the bill, all of them were rejected by the slim Democrat majority in the chamber. Among these rejected amendments were provisions to exclude:
- Gang members
- Sex offenders
- Those ineligible to drive
Of course, Democrats need to protect their base of supporters.
