Easy License and ID for Illegals in Washington State Means Residents, Other States, Pay the Price

The reason for this didn’t immediately strike me, but when I thought about it, I remembered my state’s warped illegal immigrant policies. When I told him Washington’s policy allows illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses and IDs, he told me it all made sense now. I told him that it makes sense but in an unsettling way—you know, the if you had a bunch of suspicious people hanging around your house but you intentionally left your doors and windows unlocked anyway kind of unsettling. He said many of them told him they’d specifically gone to Washington just to get a license.
