Driver’s license bill for undocumented workers

[From TC Daily Planet]

«About 30 activists gathered at the Waite House Community Center in Minneapolis on February 25  to strategize ways to move forward with a bill that would allow undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver’s license.  Mujeros En Liderazgo (Women in Leadership), an organization dedicated to social and immigration issues, organized the meeting. Only a handful of states have passed similar laws, while a larger number require proof of immigration status to be presented by drivers license applicants.

Maria Cisneros emphasized the problems that lack of a driver’s license can create. «If a child gets sick, and they don’t have access to the emergency room or they can’t get a job, this is a loss to the economy,» she said. «Someone who is affected by domestic violence may not report to the police because they don’t have a driver’s license or I.D. This affects single mothers and their children, from not being able to take children to the doctor or to get to work to support their children.»..»
