Democrats Push Bill to Give Illegal Immigrants Driver’s Licenses

By

Florida is the latest state to join the push by Democrats to give illegal immigrants driver’s licenses. A Democratic-sponsored bill was recently filed in Florida’s House and Senate that would allow residents to get driver’s licenses regardless of their immigration status.

The bill was proposed in the Florida Legislature last month and would let illegal aliens use identifying documents like an unexpired foreign passport or a foreign birth certificate to get an American license to drive.

According to the News Service of Florida, the House bill was sponsored by Democratic Rep. Anna Eskamani, who says she believes this legislation “helps to build that trust” with those who are considered “marginalized” in the state, adding that it would also “help make roads safer.”

“It doesn’t matter your immigration status,” Democratic Sen. Jose Javier Rodriguez said.

“If you are on the roads, you should have access to a driver’s test and the ability to get car insurance.”
