Letter body: 

I just read the story about issuing driver’s licenses to non-U.S. citizens.

I think if immigrants not in the United States legally need a driver’s license so badly, they should become a citizen first, then apply for a license. I don’t understand how it would create safer roads if they get their license. Does having that license in their pocket automatically make them drive better?

What kind of training are they going to get? You can be sure it will be paid for by legal citizens.

Immigration laws need to be enforced first. Then, as immigrants become citizens, they can apply for a driver’s license legally.
