Regardless if a person is a legal citizen or not a legal citizen, we should only have safe drivers on our streets and highways. Illegal persons are already driving in the USA so let's be sure they are tested and have demonstrated that they have the competence to drive a vehicle safely and that they are not a danger to other drivers.

Since this seems to be a brief acceptance round, I accept my opponents challenge, although he clearly does not have any definitions or terms, so those flow over to me to define; with my opponent incapable of rejecting them:

Immigrant: a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence

http://www.merriam-webster.com...

Illegal Immigrant: a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country's authorization.

Drivers License: A driver's license/licence or driving licence is an official document which states that a person may operate a vehicle, such as a motorcycle, car, truck, or a bus, on a public roadway.

I will now lay out the basic points I will be arguing throughout this debate:

-Driving is a privilege earned by law abiding citizens

- One of the most common ways to identify illegals so they can be deported to their home country is by their lack of ID/License, abolishing this would be detrimental to our already poor law enforcement of detaining illegals.

- Illegal Immigrants have violated the domestic laws of the USA, aiding or giving comfort to people to are our enemies (law breakers are enemies of the state) is treasonous. Even if this point is seen as extreme, giving comfort to people who willingly violate the law is detrimental to the law enforcement system.

I will bring up additional points later on as needed.

I look forward to an interesting and cordial debate, good luck to my opponent!

My opponent has given up the round, since a lot of my arguments are original, I will not use them unless my opponent gets back, as I can save them and use them for another debate.

I hope my opponent gets back so we can salvage the rest of the debate!
