Too Little, Too Late: Michigan’s Phony Atty. Gen. Postures on Illegal Aliens; Allowed Them to Get Michigan Driver’s Licenses for FIVE Years!
By Debbie Schlussel
As I’ve previously noted on this site, Michigan is one of the few states where illegal aliens can freely get a driver’s license, no questions asked. They just have to provide a utility bill showing residence, or sign a document stating they don’t have a social security number. It’s that easy, and that’s why illegal alien criminals come to Michigan from all over America to get driver’s licenses. Innocent people have died because of these illegal alien driver’s licenses.
And yet, Michigan’s Republican Secretary of State Terry Lynn Land and Republican Attorney General Mike Cox did nothing about it. Despite complaints, she insisted on continuing to issue them and even introduced an Elliot Spitzer-style set of different driver’s licenses for the aliens. Cox just ignored the issue. Both of them actively looked the other way for FIVE YEARS.
But now, after five years in office for both of them in their current respective statewide offices, both Land and Cox are term-limited. And both are running for Governor of Michigan. So, five years too late, Cox has decided to finally do something, so he can distinguish himself from Land, once the gubernatorial race is in full-force in a year or so. But it is too little too late.
Today, both Detroit papers feature stories about Cox’s opportunistic and long overdue Attorney General’s opinion that illegal aliens are not entitled to Michigan Driver’s Licenses. Where was he the previous five years?
Oh, he was busy with more important things, like jailing a bankrupt former NFL player and keeping him from his kids, despite the protests of the mothers of all of the kids. Cox has made a name for himself going after “deadbeat dads”–that’s what he calls them, whereas I prefer the more accurate, “deadbeat parents.”
And he was busy not prosecuting Muslim illegal alien women who defrauded Medicaid to have their kids here, while he went on “O’Reilly Factor,” claiming he actually did something. (And he lied to O’Reilly, claiming the persons who exposed the scam were Arabs; They were NOT.) He did not and allowed it to continue for at least five years, and continues to allow it. (He waited until the women fled the country and were untouchable, before he prosecuted them.)
And then, there’s Cox’s multiple visits to extremist Arab and Muslim organizations, such as “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad’s ADC-Michigan office and the pro-Hezbollah/HAMAS Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan banquet.
Oh, and I almost forgot, there are Cox’s press conferences and statements admitting an extra-marital affair (there have been several), after he issued a report excusing his McNamara Machine buddy, Kwame “The Kingpin” Kilpatrick, the Mayor of Detroit of participating in the drive-by assassination of a woman who had stripped for him at a wild party at the Manoogian Mayoral Mansion. (The McNamara Machine is the political machine of the corrupt late Wayne County executive Ed McNamara, who died with a net worth of multi-millions after years of sleaze in office. Cox, Mayor Kilpatrick’s father, and current Michigan Gov. Jennifer “GranHO” Granholm were all disciples of McNamara and helped cover-up for him.
Here’s the money-quote about what happened in Michigan for the last five years on both Cox’s and Land’s watch:
The state doesn’t track how many illegal immigrants already have received licenses.
So, to all those who applaud Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox for finally outlawing driver’s licenses for illegal aliens, please ask Cox:
Where were you the last five years while illegal aliens–many of them Muslims with ties to Hezbollah, HAMAS, and Al-Qaeda–got legitimate Michigan Driver’s Licenses (which don’t expire for years) on your watch?
Why did you do nothing on this for years, until you were starting to run for governor?
Thank you very little.
