DC Mayor Introduces Bill To Provide Illegal Immigrants Driver's Licenses

Immigrant advocates object because it won't be the same license legal immigrants and citizens get, which would violate federal law

|

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray has introduced a bill that would allow people living in the country illegally to get driver's licenses in the nation's capital.

The bill would create a two-tiered system of licenses. Immigrants who can't prove they are in the country legally would get licenses or identification cards that would not be valid for federal purposes such as boarding airplanes or entering federal buildings.
