Immigrants Seek PA Driver’s Licenses

Undocumented workers seek documentation.

The Patriot-News reports: “With discussions of comprehensive immigration reform stalled, if not dead, in Congress, a group of undocumented immigrants rallied at the state Capitol on Wednesday to ask support for House Bill 1648, which would allow them to receive licenses. Under the proposal, residents who do not have a social security number could receive a license by providing Tax ID number, a valid passport from their native country or other documents like a birth certificate that would verify their identity.”

Seven states passed similar laws last year, the paper says. Pennsylvania’s GOP-controlled legislature, however, is not considered friendly ground for the bill.
