So now many undocumented residents in California can get a document that states they are now documented undocumented in that they can drive and have an ID.

I suppose the spin meisters will now need to give them a new label. In essence, in our country which, for years has tried to remove the stigma of any group being second class citizens we now have basically done that very thing. A group of folks, good people mostly, aren't true citizens but have several of the benefits of citizens but not all. Thus "official second class citizens".
So now now the full citizens can officially look down on others. A class system. Even.

They could "officially" be looked down upon before -- the class system already exists. Driver's licenses don't change that, although you're right that the marketing will have to change ...

This whole "illegal" immigrant situation bugs the hell outa me, since with a couple pen strokes the status of a huge group of residents could change drastically and with that a huge chunk of revenue through additional taxes .
