Hole big enough to drive a truck full of illegal immigrants through vetoed by Schwarzenegger

Governor Schwarzenegger recently vetoed Senate Bill 1162 which would have allowed illegal immigrants to get drivers licenses and identification cards in California. The bill was sponsored by State Senator Cedillo.

Here's the specific provision from the bill that would have allowed for the illegal immigrant coddling (emphasis added):
(3) Existing law requires the Department of Motor Vehicles, upon proper application, to issue a class C or M driver's licenses.

This bill would require an applicant for an original driver's license to sign a 2 part statement developed by the department, informing the applicant of the limitations and entitlements associated with the issuance of the driver's license and requiring the applicant to affirm that if he or she is not a citizen or legal resident of the United States that the applicant has applied for legal residency or will apply for legal residency under the United States immigration laws. The bill would require the 2 part statement to be signed under penalty of perjury. Because the bill would expand the scope of the crime of perjury, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
