Hispanics oppose REAL ID legislation:

Fernando Aceves interviewed hispanic community members for the East Oregonian newspaper. The article notes that many Hispanics here do not have proper immigration documentation to obtain a driver's license under the new law. Some quotes:
“If they take away our driver’s licenses, we’ll just have to drive to work illegally, like many other people do, immigrant and non-immigrant."

“Terrorism is the excuse some people are using to take away as much as possible from illegal immigrants and make our stay here even worse,” he said. “But until they take away employers that’ll hire us, driver’s license or no driver’s license, we’ll keep working.”

“First we must get the facts straight. It was legal immigrants who hijacked those planes on Sept. 11. Most of them were from Saudi Arabia, not Mexico.”
