Agree with previous comment. Just because people are "non-citizens," doesn't mean they are illegals. They may be here on a work visa and should be able to legally drive.

Non-citizens does not mean those that entered illegally. People here on legal work visas should be able to get a license. Not those who are her by sneaking across the border.

If they can prove that they understand the rules and regulations, they can get a 30 day permit, and will need to be renewed after that time.

Driving is a privilage granted to law abiding citizens. It is not a right everyone is entitled to. In addition, citizens pay taxes for maintaining roads.

It is rediculous that a non citizen should be given any rights. Rights are for citizens who have done the work & deserve them.

Once we voted it out and the second time we had it appealed. What does that tell you! Illegal immigrants lawfully do NOT have any rights in America....PERIOD!! It is ILLEGAL for them to be here as is.

We voted this down in 2013 by a large margin. The legislature must think we're stupid, to keep bringing this up. The only reason they want it, is because it makes it easier for them to vote illegal

None citizens without a GREEN CARD, NO; if they have one they are permanent residents & should get driver license. Many illegals don't carry insurance, and in an accident the victims, us, suffer

The voters said NO by 2 to 1. The Democrats are subverting the will of the people just like a dictatorship.

Illegals with drivers licenses are then qualified to vote in Oregon. This is unacceptable.

In Oregon this is how you register to vote. Non-Citizens should not be voting in Oregon or any other state.

First line in the drivers handbook says that driving is a privilege not a right and at anytime that privilege can be revoked if you fail to follow the laws of the road. Illegals can take the bus!

If they are here illegally then no they shouldnt be given a license. That's just a way to enable them to come here more than they already are. Absolutely NO

If the individual is illegally in this country they should not have a valid license. They should not be here or driving here. Not paying taxes = no privileges = illegal

Illegal immigrants should not be able to get a license in our country if they're not even legally supposed to be here! This shouldn't even be a question...

No, They have already broken the law! Our state registers every person over the age of 18 to vote up on being issued a driver's license and this could lead to a gateway of illegal voting!

Legal non-citizens, and there are many, should be able to get a license. Illegal immigrants should not. There is a big difference.

Legal citizens have to show 5 pieces of ID to renew their license. I witnessed two to four times per day illegals running stop signs along highway 97 and feather road in Crook and Jefferson counties.

"To"? Anyone who can't spell a three letter word is unpersuasive.

I'll go with "no" on this one. If there's insurance on the house, the insurer could do that. Ditto for any mortgage holder. If neither applies, I don't think we should try to regulate stupidity.
