Last January, the left-wing mecca known as California implemented Assembly Bill 60, which allowed illegal aliens to apply for driver’s licenses in the state. Conservatives argued that it would further legitimize an army of people who were already gaming the immigration system. Liberals, as always, responded by mocking those concerns.

If you were against the bill, you were some kind of paranoid delusional who’d created an elaborate fantasy about an imaginary legion of border-crossers who salivated at the thought of using our roads. This group of people, the left argued, either didn’t exist or was at best microscopic.

Apparently, “microscopic” now means “around 40% of the total.”

As the International Business Times reports:

A new law in California allowing for undocumented immigrants to apply for driver’s licenses went into effect last January, prompting an influx of applications. Under the new law, 605,000 undocumented residents received licenses, accounting for 40 percent of all of the licenses issued last year.

Exceeding expectations, even more attempted to obtain a license: Around 830,000 undocumented immigrants have applied for a license since Jan. 2, 2015, the first day of the new policy at the Department of Motor Vehicles. The licenses are similar to the standard driver’s license except they say “Federal Limits Apply” on the back.
