Repeal driving bill

Mail Tribune, Medford OR

In an attempt to bolster his standing with Hispanics in the last election, President Barack Obama issued an executive form of the Dream Act. He did it by fiat, and this unwise act will remain in effect until a federal court overturns it.

In Oregon, the president's political idiocy was compounded by Gov. John Kitzhaber. Kitzhaber boarded the president's bandwagon and began an effort to grant driving privileges to beneficiaries of Obama's questionable dream act. Then the Oregon Legislature passed a bill, SB 833, the governor signed it and the process of putting illegal aliens dangerously behind the wheel in Oregon began in earnest.

Fortunately for legal residents of Oregon, a group has come forward to restore a sense of legality to the state's streets and highways. Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR) has begun to circulate a petition to get a referendum on the November ballot to put an end to all of this legislative nonsense. They need your help. Straight thinking Oregonians, urge voters to save themselves from misguided public officials and get behind OFIR. Urge friends and neighbors to sign petitions. Support this effort to restore sanity to Oregon's highways. Stand with OFIR. See
