With California Added, 4.1 MILLION ILLEGALS are Now Eligible to Obtain Drivers Licenses

Hundreds camped outside overnight to be among the first inside. When the doors opened, the crowd rushed into the building. This wasn’t a Black Friday sale. It was the first day California allowed immigrants in the state illegally to apply for a driver’s license.
On Jan. 2, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles began tackling a surge of such applicants, complying with a new law allowing those who prove they reside here to qualify for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status. In the first three days, 46,200 people applied.
Statewide, 1.4 million illegal immigrants are expected to apply for licenses over the next three years. To prepare, the DMV has hired 900 additional staff, dispatched representatives to do outreach in immigrant communities and erected four new mega-sized branches.
In doing so, California joins nine other states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia in issuing licenses to undocumented immigrants. Supporters say it promotes road safety; critics say it legitimizes illegal immigrants.
