NY drops illegal driver license program

The firestorm over granting licenses and ID cards to illegal aliens in New York that lasted for seven weeks has finally blown over with the announcement that the idea is ‘kaput’.  Not dead though, according to some political reactions, just on the shelf for a while.

Case in point:
Rep. Charles Rangel [D-Manhatten], praised Governor Eliot Spitzer for at least trying to push the legislation through, saying “I congratulate you, governor, for the attempt.  The idea was right, the timing was wrong”.

That quote makes one wonder why the idea of rewarding those who circumvent our laws is the ‘right’ thing to do, and if only the ‘timing’ was wrong, when will ‘it’ be right?  Next year?  The year after that?
