To a state near you, courtesy of the Democratic Party’s “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” that enough Republicans will support to get it to pass.
Some 40 asylum-seekers refused to leave the bus when they arrived at their destination in rural northern Sweden, demanding that they be taken back to Malmö or “some big city”.
When the transport arrived at a housing centre in Grytan south of Östersund the asylum-seekers didn’t like the look of what they saw.
“I am 75-years-old and come from the Middle East. Then I get sent to a place that looks like this,” said a man from Syria to the local Östersunds-Posten daily, pointing to the icy road.
“It is dangerous for me to be here,” he said.
The asylum-seekers, who originate from several countries, refused to leave the bus when it arrived at the small Swedish town. The police were called to assist at the scene but declined to help in escorting the group from the bus.
The group is demanding that they be returned to Malmö or some other bigger city.
How can I be even just a little bit sure of this?
State officials hope a new law that offers California driver’s licenses to immigrants in the country illegally will also spur them to buy insurance.
To encourage the practice, the California Department of Insurance is aggressively marketing its Low Cost Auto Insurance program to the large pool of immigrants projected to seek licenses under the AB 60 law taking effect Jan. 1.
“It would be a tragedy if after all this effort, the 1.4 million people who are getting driver’s licenses for the first time don’t have auto insurance,” said Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones.
Jones and others recognized that the cost of getting licensed — $33 — is a lot cheaper than buying insurance for hundreds of dollars a year. So, Jones, working with Senator Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, got the state Legislature to open up the low-cost insurance program to the new category of immigrant drivers.
“The price will be less than $450 a year, which is less than $38 a month,” Jones said. He said that’s about a third of what it costs to get private auto insurance in many markets across California.
I wonder if they also ran the numbers to see how much more it would have cost the state to just be the insurance agents for illegal immigrants?
