North Carolina slammed for branding illegal
immigrants with ´second-class´ driver´s

North Carolina will soon start issuing driver´s licenses to some illegal immigrants, but the design of the new cards has sparked outrage among civil libertarians. The licenses have a tell-tale bright pink stripe across the top along with the words ´NO LAWFUL STATUS´ written in bold, which have raised concerns that they will encourage discrimination against those who show it. The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles announced last week they would begin issuing the licenses on March 25 following a lengthy legal review. The Obama administration´s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program grants valid federal work permits to qualified

Nothing wrong with this law. There´s a new liberal movement to push policies that before you get a driver´s license you have to attend a seminar on organ donations.That´s a lot worse to me than this law.

There´s another firestorm brewing in SC that would restrict food stamp recipients from buying "unhealthy" foods.This will get them riled up.Sounds like something Bloomberg would do but he wouldn´t want to alienate his base.

There is no discrimination here. The fact is they have "No lawful status".

In Michigan, the requirements and process for obtaining a driver´s license can take a year for legal citizens. Rather than a pink striped license, I´d prefer a pink uniform from Sheriff Arpaio.

OK, instead, we just won´t issue any license at all.

Excellent idea from North Carolina. This should be a national requirement. ´No Lawful Status´, I like the sound of that. It should be quoted more often in other areas when referring to illegal migrants.

This is fine as a temporary measure. But it accomplishes nothing except getting a few licensing dollars into the NC treasury because if someone is willing to illegally breach any country´s borders, I suspect they´d have no problem illegally operating a motor vehicle. I´d rather see a Berlin-type wall on our southern border with one door where those who want to seek legal status can be welcomed through. Oh, and like Berlin, MEXICO should put the wall up.

What a great idea. Would be nice if many other states adopted such a mechanism. To me, it helps flag officers during a stop that they´r dealing with someone who has already committed a federal office (& therefore, for that specific reason, may be more likely to present greater risk to the officer than others). Hint. View this as a legitimate safety reason for officers during legitimate reasons to ask for approved identification.

So how about it, state legislators? Got the intestinal fortitude to put such a mechanism in place? It´s a safety issue.

This is clearly intended to prevent illegal aliens from using their state-issued driver´s license as photo ID in order to vote illegally.
Those "slamming" NC just want to let illegals vote (reliably Dem). That should be the story, not NC´s crass insensitivity in daring to call an illegal "Not Lawful."

Unfortunately #15, NC doesn´t have a Voter ID law so illegals and felons can continue voting for democrats. I guess if they are going to let me drive, they might as well have this status displayed. Of course, I was almost killed in 2005 by a drunk driving illegal alien so I´m pretty intolerant...

Cockroaches show up when you leave free food out in your house, or your neighbor does in an apartment building. As long as the welfare state continues the cockroaches will continue to show up. Want to get rid of them? Then no welfare, close the border and fumigate the nation.

The article includes a statement from the ACLU regarding "...aspiring citizens...". Excuse me, aspiring citizens do not sneak into this country, do not steal jobs from citizens, do not steal services from our government, and do not overburden our social services with their anchor babies and visits to the ER. We must begin to pick and parse the statements from the Left and loudly point out the false nature of their premise and their claims. "Aspiring citizens" my aunt Fanny. These people shouldn´t be getting licenses at all, only deportation notices.

University of East London bans segregated
Muslim event from its premises

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist.

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
