Allowing Undocumented Immigrant Drivers Licenses and Insurance Gets Bipartisan Support


A bipartisan group of politicians will be on hand today to endorse legislation that would allow undocumented immigrants to obtain Illinois drivers licenses.

 

Democrats like Governor Pat Quinn and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will be joined by Republican Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka and former Governor Jim Edgar in support of the proposal.

 

The bill would allow illegal immigrants to obtain three-year licenses, but would also require that they take drivers’ education and obtain insurance.

 

Supporters say the law will address the problem of nearly a quarter-million undocumented workers who are believed to be driving on Illinois roadways without a license… and with no formal driving instruction.
