I believe the governor is doing the right thing here. Claiming that giving licenses to “illegal” immigrants is tantamount to advocating 9/11, as many have done, is simply ridiculous. Just because everyone doesn’t say “September 11” one-hundred times a day, as Giuliani does, doesn’t mean that we’ve forgotten. I was in tower 2 on 9/11 (my story)and I certainly don’t believe that giving licenses to “illegal” immigrants is a national security concern. I’d be more worried about making the United States a hated country by invading other countries for fun and profit.
