THIS IS WRONG. You break the law and come into the country, obtain all of our benefits and its okay?
SACRAMENTO (AP) — California has handed out 110,000 driver’s licenses to immigrants in the country illegally during the first seven weeks of applications.
The figures for all of January and much of February were released this week by the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles.
In early January when the law took effect, hundreds of immigrants lined up at designated DMV offices for walk-in appointments.
The applicants have to submit documents and take a written test, and later, they must take a road test. They receive licenses that read “not acceptable for official federal purposes” like boarding planes.
California expects to issue 1.4 million driver’s licenses to immigrants over the next three years under the program to license drivers regardless of their immigration status.
