Illinois approves driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants

 Wednesday, January 9, 2013


Illinois lawmakers approved a new measure Tuesday that would allow undocumented immigrants to get temporary driver’s licenses. Gov. Pat Quinn has pledged to sign the bill, saying in a statement that it will make the state’s roads safer. "More than 250,000 immigrant motorists on our roads today have not passed a driving test, which presents a dangerous risk to other drivers," said Quinn, a Democrat. "Illinois roads will be safer if we ensure every driver learns the rules of the road and is trained to drive safely."
