* Tribune

Democratic state Senate President John Cullerton on Sunday continued his push for legislation that would give a special driver’s license to illegal immigrants.

Cullerton told congregants at a packed Spanish-language service at St. Pius V Church in Pilsen that though the bill sailed through the Senate, he would need their help to get it through the House.

“The reason why we need to pass this legislation is not just so that illegal immigrants can drive, but also so that everyone will be safe,” said Cullerton, whose talk was translated into Spanish. “I hope you can continue to encourage your legislators in the House of Representatives to vote for the bill.”

Under the measure, an estimated 250,000 illegal immigrants would be eligible for three-year renewable driver’s licenses. The special licenses would require drivers to pass vision, written and road tests. It could not be used as an official form of identification.

    “And now some prayers for some in the congregation today.

    Pray for my son, who is not feeling well…

    Pray for safe travels for my parents, coming to America for the first time …

    Pray that Christine Radogno continues to lead the Senate Republicans for a long time …

    Pray for …”

    President Cullerton, in silent prayer:

    “Hello, It’s John. I asked you, a long time ago, to be the Illinois Senate President. It came to Pass. I ask you to give Pat Quinn victory against Bill Brady. That too came to be. Then, after drawing that Map, and outworking the GOP again, I asked for you to make sure Christine Radogno retains her spot as Minority Leader, and that came to be. One more question …when is that other shoe going to drop? …Oh, and Amen.”

    I travel in the Beardstown area frequently, where there are a lot of immigrants driving. Just because they pass a driver’s test doesn’t mean they are safe drivers. They need to arrest and deport illegals instead of encouraging them. This didn’t work in New Mexico, so why would it work here?

    …and dear Lord, I pray that the only heat my caucus is packing is the passion to do good for the people of Illinois.

    Oh, and while we’re talking if you haven’t covered it already a Notre Dame win against those crackers would be great, too.
    Thanks.

    I think I’m good now. “

    DeLeo says giving them drivers licenses is a slam dunk. Now I’m stuck here holding hands in church and he’s watching the game somewhere or out buying a new car. Well, things could be worse, like if somebody gets a photo of this to Miller.

    Dear Lord, please don’t make me the victim of a caption contest.

    Lord? This is John. Please, please, please don’t let this congregation tar-and-feather me for having used the non-PC phrase “illegal immigrants” in front of them.


  15. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 10, 12 @ 2:08 pm:

    In silent prayer, President Cullerton states his intentions…

    “Thank you for immigrants. They are what make this country great…

    And thank you for this controversy for us to overcome …

    And thank you for allowing those who disagree be so loud. ..

    And thank you for ‘litmus tests’ and ‘purity’, it has helps alot…

    And thank you for Jim Oberweis…and …

    Dear Lord, finally, thank you for Twitter …

    Thank you for my new Friend @SenatorMcCarter, or as we now call him the ‘Holy Tweeter’…

    Please keep Twitter working, now and forever, Amen.”
