HB 2015A allows undocumented resident drivers license

VOTE:NO – Governor Brown Signed into Law

Status (overview) of bill:https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2019R1/Measures/Overview/HB2015

This bill allows undocumented resident to receive drivers license without proof of citizenship and requires ODOT to do education for use of the license, and rules to update voter requirements to comply with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. Does not apply to Real ID, commercial drivers license or commercial drivers permit.

Personal Choice and Responsibility
Allows a person when not providing a Social Security number to provide a written statement that the person has not been assigned a Social Security number to obtain a drivers license, but provides no requirement for the written statement. It doesn’t even need to be in English and English isn’t a requirement for the drivers license so how can they be expected to follow driving laws.

Fiscal Responsibility
For the administration of driver and motor vehicle services, funding is increased by $4,264,589.

Limited Government
A driver license, driver permit or identification card that is not a Real ID may not be used as evidence of the holder’s citizenship or immigration status for any purpose. A person may not discriminate against an individual because the individual holds or presents a form of government issued identification other than a Real ID. HB 2015A requires ODOT to do outreach in multiple languages to educate on the use of the new license. Repeals Department of Transportation ombudsman services.

HB 2015A – I STRONGLY OPPOSE

Dear Senator

This bill allows undocumented resident to receive driver’s license without proof of citizenship. This bill defies the vote of Oregonians.

All an unlawful resident needs to do to obtain a driver’s license is to write a statement that the person has not been assigned a Social Security number. There are no requirements for the written statement. So, they can write anything, and it isn’t required to be in English.

Being English literate isn’t required for the drivers license so how can we expect them to follow driving laws. This bill puts citizens at risk on the roads.

The license gives the person the ability to obtain citizen’s rights that they aren’t entitled too. Protect citizens and vote no.

    Voters overturned this in a 2014 referendum by a wide margin. If there’s an emergency designation attached, we will not get another opportunity to vote. Do not ignore the will of the electorate, even if trucking companies and others push for it. The safety of Oregonians is paramount.

  2. Brian K Calderon says:

    Why would we do this ? If they are ILEAGAL then deport them…

  3. Marie Pokorny says:

    What part of illegal alien are they not comprehending! Voters already said no. This also violates our voting rights. Allowing a foreign entity to influence an election! Illegal aliens have no constitutional rights only human rights. They are NOT allowed to VOTE PERIOD!

  4. CraigBruce says:

    We the people voted this down twice. I THOUGHT YOU WERE VOTED IN TO DO QHAT THE VOTERS WANTED. BUT INSTEAD YOU ARE DOING YOUR OWN THING. Time to start the recall process. Unless you want to move to Mexico, were you can represent illegal immigrants

  5. Marie Pokorny says:

    Yes we did! Their master plan entails allowing illegal aliens to vote. You could see it coming when they passed the law that registers you to vote when obtaining a license. This is colluding with a foreign entity allowing an illegal alien to vote. Recall them ALL! Commie Kate and her comrades should be imprisoned!

  6. Shelly L Mahar says:

    On September 5, 2018 in a unanimous opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld Measure 88, holding the voters of Oregon could keep their state from issuing drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens.

    • Nancy Ferguson says:

      This is a matter that was decided by the people and should never be allowed to override that vote! To allow illegals to receive an Or. DL would be a safety problem as Oregonians lives are at stake! Illegals drive w/o insurance!
      They should not be given permission to vote as they are not citizens of this nation and should never be allowed to vote until real citizenship is earned by immigrating LEGALLY!
      DON’T GIVE OUR COUNTRY TO PERSONS THAT ARE BREAKING OUR LAWS ALREADY!
      THE PEOPLE SAID NO!!!! WE MEAN NO!!!!!!!!

  7. Pat McMahon says:

    Illegal aliens are NOT privileged with the rights of Oregonians, or Americans. Stop giving these criminals the rights of citizens, as they’re NOT citizens THEY’RE NOT your constituency. Represent YOUR constituency, Oregonians…legal citizens of Oregon.

  8. Donald Reynolds says:

    This is obviously a plan to drum up more votes for the socialists. We can thank mostly Multnomah county/Portland for the super majority and this bill and the plethora of anti gun bills. I continue to say, make insane legislation, finance it and then implement ! Easier said than done. The further away from urban areas the less likely it will be to carry out these monstrosities and we all know, illegal aliens tend to migrate to urban areas as that is where the $, and temperment to accept these people being here. Not so much in rural Oregon. Since this has become an Us vs Them, urban vs rural situation and the only real power I have to thwart govt overreach is at the ballot box, seems like they have fixed that “loophole” with this bill…

  9. Judy A. Fralia-Mantello says:

    Kate and our Lawmakers think they are going to “TRY” to go over the VOTERS HEAD’S WHEN WE SAID “NO” to giving ILLEGALS drivers licenses?

    #KorruptKate is doing everything she can to get votes for her Socialist Party! She wants 16-year-old children to vote? What so their parents fill out their ballots for them? THAT IS VOTER FRAUD KATE! But Kate doesn’t care and neither do our Lawmakers that have been drinking Kates Koolaid!

    Then she wants to put a ‘stamp’ on the return envelopes! We all know how the ballots are being taken out of mailboxes this last election! Let’s just help on more VOTER FRAUD, right Kate!

    THEN…Kate made sure that when you get your Drivers Licenses, you are AUTOMATICALLY SIGNED UP TO VOTE! No matter if you want a ballot, you will get one, so throw it away and maybe someone else will fill it out for you!

    • Donald Reynolds says:

      Just like Ca’s “motor voter” law. Who is running this state, California immigrants or Oregon’s voters ? Are there NO checks and balances on the super majority and the governor, or do we have to watch as our state goes down in flames ? Moved her in 1972, and this is such a horrible turn of events due exactly to actions of “progressives.”

  10. Jerry J Cumiford says:

    We Oregonians voted overwhelmingly no, 70% no, this should not be a consideration! When elected officials ignore and disregard the will of the people, as we are watching happen in Oregon now, we no longer have a democracy…we have a dictatorship!

  11. Debra Anderson says:

    No! How can anyone think that rewarding someone that is here illegally is ok?

    I sent the email, I hope everyone does….just had one blip the commas on the email addresses should be taken out…not a big deal but a pain…

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop…

    HB 2015 – STRONGLY OPPOSE

    Dear Co-Chairs Betsy Johnson, Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, and Dan Rayfield and Members of the Ways and Means Committee.

    This bill allows unlawful resident to receive driver’s license without proof of citizenship and then would go into the automatic voter registration. This bill defies the vote of Oregonians.

    All an unlawful resident needs to do to obtain a driver’s license is to write a statement that the person has not been assigned a Social Security number. There are no requirements for the written statement.

    The license gives the person the ability to obtain citizen’s rights that they aren’t entitled too. Protect citizens and let this bill die, vote no.

    This is a matter that was decided by the people , and the legislature should not override that vote!

    To allow undocumented individuals to receive an Oregon Driver License could be a safety issue as undocumented aliens often drive without insurance.

    They should not be given permission to vote as they are not citizens of this nation and should never be allowed to vote until real citizenship is earned by immigrating LEGALLY.

    THE PEOPLE SAID NO!!!! WE MEAN NO!!!!!!!!

      Stephen, did you send your comments to the emails in the link?

  15. Diane McMillan says:

    We need to vote the legislators out of office who vote to give driver’s licenses to illegal aliens!!

  16. Mary Gemmell says:

    Let’s be honest. Dems have passed this bill to harvest votes. It has nothing to do with public safety, or anything else. Prove me wrong- Repeal the Motor Voter legislation
