Immigrants On The Road

Short question: What are the arguments against allowing illegal immigrants to get driver's licenses? Here in California, thanks to Davis and Arnie, you can get a license simply by showing your crumpled Mexican documents. Fair enough, and it makes life easier for the people plucking my Safeway-brand tomatoes—actually, a lot easier judging from what I've heard about LA's bus system. But what's the big uproar about? That it lets the terrorists get licenses more easily? Really, now. Any terrorist that can't arrange his own transportation probably isn't a big threat in the first place. I'm being flip, but still. Is that the only concern?
