Few years ago, undocumented immigrants who knew driving and had passport identity would easily get license by states. This was supported by many leading law enforcement officials and decided to keep it away from the immigration issue. This policy was in a state until 9/11 but 9/11 affected rights or privilege extended to undocumented immigrants and process of getting driver’s license became difficult.
But now Obama has come up with new decision to grant driver’s license to undocumented immigrants with the right to remain in United States for two years without the threat of deportation. About 400,000 undocumented immigrants are getting benefited to stay in United State without fear.
With continuous approach of California Gov. Jerry Brown and has spoken against changing the law to allow undocumented immigrants to get driver’s licenses.
“At the end of the day, it’s a state-issued document, and the state has the authority to determine who is eligible for that document,” said Iran Grossman, vice president of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, in an interview with CNN.
California has already laid the groundwork to issue the driver’s license to member of deferral program so President along with California should be congratulated.
