Tallahassee, FL - Florida Gov. Rick Scott is vetoing a bill that would have allowed some young immigrants who are living in the U.S. illegally to apply for a temporary driver’s license in the state.

The Republican-controlled Legislature passed a bill that said that young immigrants allowed to remain in the country under an Obama administration “deferred action” policy could use federal documents to receive a temporary driver’s license for at least one year.

In a veto message, Scott questioned the legality of the federal policy announced last June.

The Republican governor notes the policy has not been approved by Congress or as a federal rule. He says the administration order could not be used to justify letting someone have a temporary license.

The bill was passed overwhelmingly.

If someone smacks into me on the road, I want them to have insurance. You cannot get insurance without a driver's license.

They shouldn't be driving if they are illegal, without insurance and/or without a license!!!
Getting a drivers license makes it easy to pass you resell off as a legal citizen or immigrant!!!

Are you for real? Illegal is illegal. If they do become citizens, although I disagree with Oybama's policy, that's a different story.
