California has released a report stating that more than one million illegal immigrants residing in California have received driver’s licenses.
The Sacramento Bee reported on Wednesday that as of March 31, the state of California’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has issued drivers licenses to 1,001,000 illegal immigrants.
This outrageous number of illegal immigrants obtaining licenses is largely the responsibility of California Governor Jerry Brown. With the signing of Assembly Bill 60, illegal immigrants have been allowed to obtain driver’s licenses legally since January 1, 2015. Assembly Bill 60 is known as “The Safe and Responsible Drivers Act”.
Assembly Bill 60 was designed to help illegal immigrants travel to jobs, bring children to school and take care of daily errands without having to worry about being pulled over.
The bill was written in 2013 by then Democratic assemblyman Luis Alejo. It has been suggested by Alejo that driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants have made roads safer, because individuals are required to be tested and insured. Also, the licenses do not grant illegal immigrants the right to vote.Tags: Assembly Bill 60 border California DMV driver's licences for illegals illegal immigrants illegal immigration immigration Jerry Brown Luis Alejo politics The Sacramento Bee
