For Undocumented Immigrants, Getting A Driver’s License Could Spell Trouble With ICE

Federal immigration authorities searching for people in the country illegally have found a willing partner in state motor vehicle departments, according to immigration activists.

In a dozen states and Washington, D.C., undocumented people can still get a license to drive. The idea is that roads are safer if everyone using them has passed a driver’s test.

But that licensing process may put undocumented people at risk of deportation.
