VICTORY: Driver's Licenses Issued to DREAMers

car driving1

Recently, several states’ Departments of Transportation announced that they would not grant driver’s licenses or state ID cards to young immigrants who qualify for work permits under President Obama’s new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

In response, Matt Hildreth started a MoveOn Petition to the Iowa DOT Director asking him to reverse the decision. In Michigan, Adonis Flores, a student leader at Wayne State, along with the organization Progress Michigan, started a MoveOn Petition targeting the Michigan Secretary of State. And most recently, the organizations America’s Voice and the Latin American Coalition started MoveOn Petitions asking North Carolina not to issue pink versions of licenses to young immigrants in place of the standard version.

As a result, driver’s licenses will now be issued to young immigrants in Michigan, Iowa, and North Carolina.
