Illinois Starts Issuing Temporary Driver's Licenses for Illegal Immigrants

No so undocumented


Mexican immigrant Alejandro Almanza, who has lived in the United States for 13 years, on Tuesday became the first undocumented person in Illinois to initiate the process of obtaining a temporary driver's license.

"I was a little nervous, hoping I wouldn't forget anything," Almanza told Efe as soon as he had gone through almost an hour's worth of procedures at one of the two facilities in Chicago set up to issue the temporary licenses.
