California to Provide Illegally Present Immigrants with Drivers Licenses

Rate this Entry
This is a major development given the sheer number of people impacted. It's great news for the rest of California because it means that thousands perhaps millions - of individuals currently driving without licenses will now have an incentive to learn the rules of the road and get qualified to drive. It also means that people will get insurance who don't have it now. And, of course, it's great news for immigrants not just in California, but across the country as other states look to California and the other 10 states which provide driver's licenses. Very recently, only New Mexico had such a law. There was some disagreement over whether the license should look different for illegally present immigrants, but pro-immigrant groups worried about this dropped their objections deciding that the benefits outweighed the risks.

    "It also means that people will get insurance who don't have it now."

    The percentage of uninsured motorists in New Mexico increased according to Insurance Research Council.

    California Democrats aren't hiding behind the safety rationalization. They are up front about their obstructionist motivations (as if there were any doubt with legislation like AB4). Where illegal immigration is concerned, all proposed legislation is to make unlawful presence easier, more convenient, etc. and they are openly proud of that with no qualms about how it looks to support illegality.

    The governor applauds that AB60 will make it easier for people to "get to work." That this employment is illegal apparently does not concern him.

    The bill's author gleefully notes that the bill will thwart enforcement of federal law. Somehow I don't think the hugging and cheering was in the name of public safety: It's about undermining immigration law.
