NO. Extends the time period for a valid NV Drivers Authorization Card (issued to illegal aliens so they can drive) to the same as regular drivers’ licenses, which is 4 years. This perpetuates the abuse of our systems by illegals, specifically the health care system ($183M), the educational system ($830M), justice and law enforcement ($152M), and public assistance and general government services ($27M). Yet, illegals yield a whopping $63M in collected tax revenue. Not exactly a fair swap. If we weren’t such a good and generous nation, we would not have all these systems in place and available to illegals. If they weren’t illegal, they would be rightfully entitled to all those systems without exception. But the world is not built on “ifs” and we are spending ourselves into oblivion with free everything for people who are not even citizens of our country. Extending the Drivers Authorization Card just helps them continue to use and abuse our systems. All statistics are from: http://www.fairus.org/DocServer/state_infographics/Nevada2015.pdf
I support legal immigration. I oppose illegal migration and I oppose AB322, extending the time on Drivers Authorization Cards from 1 year to 4-8 years. This is irresponsible. This encourages people, who do not belong in Nevada, to stay and encourages others to come in mass and have easier access to social services that are need for Nevada citizens. According to fairus.org, illegal aliens costs the US tax payers about $113 billion a year at the federal, state and local levels. Education of the children of illegal aliens is the biggest cost which is around $52 billion. Nearly of all those costs are absorbed by state and local governments. Also, at the state and local level, an average of less then 5% of the public costs associated with illegal aliens is recouped through taxes collected from them. This is wrong. Support of illegal aliens is a huge burden on Nevada tax payers, who are already burdened by higher taxes at all levels.
Vote NO on AB332 Extending the time on Drivers Authorization Cards from 1 year to 4-8 years. This is irresponsible. The people taking advantage of Drivers Authorization Cards are here illegally. This makes it easier for them to exploit the resources of Nevada costing taxpayers millions of dollars.
Driver’s Authorization Cards are Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Immigrants. In order to receive one from DMV: They need proof that they have lived in Nevada for 30 days. Other requirements include: a driver authorization card issued by another state, the District of Columbia, or any other territory of the United States, a passport issued by a foreign government, a birth certificate issued by a foreign government, a consular identification card issued by a Mexican Consulate, any document issued by a foreign government that the Department determines is substantially similar to a consular identification card. http://www.dmvnv.com/dac.htm In 2014 75% of those applying for the DAC failed the driving test.
What are consular Identification cards? From Wikipedia: “A report prepared for the United States Congress by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) acknowledges the controversy over the use of CID cards. It states that supporters of consular identification cards argue that they are important in a post 9/11 America to improve security and bring transactions out into the open where they can be monitored more as well as improve bilateral relations by notifying consulates when foreign nationals are detained. While others say CID cards are only needed “by aliens who are illegally present in the United States and serve to undermine U.S. immigration policy” and that at best better regulation is needed of these cards to “reinforce immigration policy and to defend against terrorism.” Foreign governments are accused of “issuing consular identification cards in the United States for purposes other than those intended by the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, namely to circumvent U.S. immigration law, and that the issuance of the cards should be subject to U.S. regulation.”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consular_identification_card.
The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers (2013)
This report estimates the annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level to be about $113 billion; nearly $29 billion at the federal level and $84 billion at the state and local level. The study also estimates tax collections from illegal alien workers, both those in the above-ground economy and those in the underground economy. Those receipts do not come close to the level of expenditures and, in any case, are misleading as an offset because over time unemployed and underemployed U.S. workers would replace illegal alien workers.
Illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers about $113 billion a year at the federal, state and local level. The bulk of the costs – some $84 billion – are absorbed by state and local governments.
The annual outlay that illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers is an average amount per native-headed household of $1,117. The fiscal impact per household varies considerably because the greatest share of the burden falls on state and local taxpayers whose burden depends on the size of the illegal alien population in that locality
Education for the children of illegal aliens constitutes the single largest cost to taxpayers, at an annual price tag of nearly $52 billion. Nearly all of those costs are absorbed by state and local governments.
At the federal level, about one-third of outlays are matched by tax collections from illegal aliens. At the state and local level, an average of less than 5 percent of the public costs associated with illegal immigration is recouped through taxes collected from illegal aliens.
Most illegal aliens do not pay income taxes. Among those who do, much of the revenues collected are refunded to the illegal aliens when they file tax returns. Many are also claiming tax credits resulting in payments from the U.S. Treasury.
With many state budgets in deficit, policymakers have an obligation to look for ways to reduce the fiscal burden of illegal migration. California, facing a budget deficit of $14.4 billion in 2010-2011, is hit with an estimated $21.8 billion in annual expenditures on illegal aliens. New York’s $6.8 billion deficit is smaller than its $9.5 billion in yearly illegal alien costs.
The report examines the likely consequences if an amnesty for the illegal alien population were adopted similar to the one adopted in 1986. The report notes that while tax collections from the illegal alien population would likely increase only marginally, the new legal status would make them eligible for receiving Social Security retirement benefits that would further jeopardize the future of the already shaky system. An amnesty would also result in this large population of illegal aliens becoming eligible for numerous social assistance programs available for low-income populations for which they are not now eligible. The overall result would, therefore, be an accentuation of the already enormous fiscal burden.

Nevada is a Sanctuary State. There is no vetting of the 37,000 illegal aliens have received Drivers Authorization Cards which are Driver’s Licenses for Illegals. The Legislature, Dept of Motor Vehicles and Police are complicit in helping Illegals by knowingly giving them Drivers Authorization Cards, allowing them to “legally” drive in Nevada. The DMV and police were in the hearing on AB322 supporting the extension of the DAC renewal time from the 1 year renewal currently to 4 to 8 years just like citizen’s driver’s licenses. Nevada law allows Illegals to get a DAC with a passport or a birth certificate from a foreign country, or a consular identification card issued by the Government of Mexico or other foreign country. In other words they are here ILLEGALLY.
Definition of Sanctuary City From Wikipedia ” In the United States a sanctuary city is a city (or State) which permits residence by undocumented immigrants to help them avoid deportation. Leaders of sanctuary cities want undocumented immigrants to have less fear of deportation, so they will be more willing to report crimes, use health services or social welfare benefits and enroll their children in school. Municipal policies include prohibiting police or city employees from questioning people about their immigration status and not cooperating with the national government to enforce immigration law. Such policies can be set expressly in law (de jure) or observed in practice (de facto)…Approximately 300 U.S. jurisdictions, including cities, counties and states, reportedly have adopted sanctuary policies.”
75% of illegals taking the driving test fail. That means there are another 148,000 Illegals who go to DMV, are identified as illegal by the documents they show, who then fail the driving test. So that’s a total of 151,700 Illegals showing up at the DMV. A DAC costs $24.00 plus $26 for taking the test. This means that instead of bringing in $888,000 (37,000 x $24) in revenue every year the DMV will only get that over a 4 or 8 year period.
Why are we helping Illegal Immigrants? Illegals cost taxpayers millions of dollars a year. Taxpayers pay for schools for their children, welfare, food stamps, Medicaid and on and on. (see stats below)
Extends the time period from 1 year to 4-8 years for Illegal Aliens Drivers Authorization Cards
AB322 extends the time period for a valid Nevada Drivers Authorization Card (which is issued to an Illegal Alien so they can drive) to the same period adopted by the Dept of Motor Vehicles for regular citizen Driver’s Licenses which is either 4 or 8 years. This is outrageous and facilitates the continued exploitation of Nevada’s resources by Illegals. It encourages more illegals to come to Nevada because they can get a DAC which looks exactly like a driver’s license. There is no vetting. For all we know they are criminals or terrorists.
Vote NO on AB322 Extending the time for Drivers Authorization Cards for Illegal Aliens. Nevada has become a sanctuary state. This is irresponsible. Illegal aliens cost the taxpayer millions of dollars in schools, welfare, and Medicaid.
