Logic behind illegal immigrant driver's licenses is puzzling

As an older American I find the thinking behind the Sunday's editorial supporting driver's licenses for illegal immigrants truly puzzling ("Driver's licenses for all drivers," Mar 31). I was raised to understand that if you violated the law, you could expect to go to jail. Now we rationalize that it is better for society to provide a license that is a privilege not a right to lawbreakers. We also notify the lawbreaker that the license will not be accepted at the airport, where you may be arrested. I guess I am just an old dinosaur!
