“I would say yes, I would want them to have driver’s licenses. It could help out the economy in a lot of ways, lower insurance costs—it would help all around.”

“I personally don’t think so because I have been in almost seven car accidents already, which wasn’t my fault because they don’t know the rules.”

“Yes, because either way they are going to be driving, so it’s better that they learn the right way than any wrongs on the streets.”

“I think they should be able to get their driver’s license because they would be able to get to work, there’d be fewer hit and runs since we’d have more people documented, and I think they are putting money into the economy either way, and we can’t stop illegal immigration. We might as well teach them how to drive.”
