VICTORY: Iowa DOT Issues Driver's Licenses to Young Immigrants

iowa1

When the Iowa Department of Transportation announced that it 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, Matt Hildreth started a MoveOn Petition. Along with local rights groups, he called for Iowa DOT Director Paul Trombino to reverse his decision. After consulting the Governor’s office, Iowa DOT began issuing driver’s licenses, a decision that will affect nearly 5,000 young Iowans.
