Illegal immigrants should not be able to get a driver's license in America. Think of all those teenagers who just turned 16 and went through classes, driving hours and logging them, to find out an immigrant can possibly get it before them.

Parents worrying about their children getting in an accident with someone who came across the border illegally. Those immigrants could not have insurance; they create a danger to those on the road. It’s unsafe to all drivers in this country.

They might have gotten their license from Illinois, but it’s a danger to all American citizens.

I believe immigrants should become a citizen and take the same steps as a new driver.
