In a move that will raise eyebrows across the nation today, Police Chief Charlie Beck has ordered officers to stop seizing the cars of sober illegal aliens who are stopped at checkpoints. But get this … if you’re a legal resident who does not have a valid license your car will be impounded.

Police Chief Charlie Beck has ordered his officers to stop seizing cars of sober but unlicensed undocumented immigrants when they are stopped in sobriety checkpoints, KPCC-FM radio reports.
Instead, police will let those who were stopped have a “reasonable time” to find someone who is licensed who can drive their car home. …
[P]olice will seize and impound cars of citizens and legal residents who also don’t have a driver’s license because they, unlike the illegal immigrants, have the option of applying for one.
Why are we doing this?
