New York: Driver’s Licenses For Undocumented Immigrants Bill Proposed in Albany

Pichardo was among about 50 activists and politicians who pushed for the measure at a Monday rally outside City Hall. It would be one way for New York officials to back up their rhetoric supporting vulnerable immigrants, supporters say.

bill proposed in Albany would create a “standard” driver’s license that anyone could get without having to provide a Social Security number, as the current license application requires. Twelve states and the District of Columbia already have similar laws in place, said state Sen. Luis Sepulveda (D-Bronx), one of the bill’s sponsors.
