Poll: Nearly 6-in-10 Floridians Oppose Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Aliens

People wait in line to get into a California Department of Motor Vehicles office in Los Angeles in February 2009. The DMV is training 900 newly hired employees in anticipation of a crush of applications this January, when immigrants without legal status may begin applying for a special driver's license …

Almost six-in-ten voters in Florida say they oppose giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens in the state, a new poll finds.

About 59 percent of all voters in Florida said they oppose the latest push by the open borders lobby to provide driver’s licenses to all eligible illegal aliens of the state’s nearly 800,000 illegal population, according to a University of North Florida survey.

Meanwhile, less than 40 percent of Floridians said they supported giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. Half of all swing voters said they oppose driver’s licenses for illegal aliens, while a minority of 42 percent of swing voters support such a policy.

Nearly 90 percent of Republican voters in Florida oppose the policy. Across the upper middle class and working class Floridians, driver’s licenses for illegal aliens is unpopular with a majority.

For example, those with a college degree said by a 56 percent majority that they do not want to provide driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. Another 59 percent of Floridians with no college degree said they too oppose driver’s licenses for illegal aliens.

Already, sanctuary states like California and New York have implemented statewide policies that allows all eligible illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses.

In California, where illegal aliens are allowed to obtain driver’s licenses as well, voter fraud has become common across the state. Last year, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) admitted that it had registered 1,500 non-eligible voters, including noncitizens, over the course of just six months.
