REPORT: GOP lawmaker proposes legislation allowing undocumented immigrants to earn driver’s licenses
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXBUSINESS.COM:
An Idaho state senator wants his state’s government to allow illegal immigrants to earn driver’s licenses, although the cards would not work for purchasing alcohol or voting.
Jim Guthrie, a Republican, plans to introduce such legislation this month or in February with the blessing of the Idaho Dairymen’s Association, according to Townhall.com.
The article goes on to state the following:
“We have undocumented aliens in the country, and that’s a given,” Guthrie told the Idaho State Journal. “Until the federal government decides to address the illegal alien situation, (the proposed legislation) gives us the opportunity to maximize that workforce while they’re here, because they’re here anyway and driving anyway.”
The report states that Guthrie is making the proposal in part because of a shortage of farmworkers and truck drivers.
