The headline “License To Thrive” on March 27 was sensational and tugged at ones heartstrings because of the plight of the protesters.

The federal law restricting driver licenses for undocumented residents seems responsible and reasonable. The flood of undocumented people into this country, and the subsequent high cost of social services, limit the chances for even a modest sustainable economy and environment.

If there is a question of residency status, then those persons should follow the standard legal avenues to resolve the issues, like everyone else.

It’s selfish to demand certain favors from the governor.
