Immigrant Driver’s Licenses

Over 90,000 undocumented immigrants are estimated to be presently living in Minnesota. Many of these people are established members of our communities. Their children are U.S. citizens and they consider Minnesota to be their home. But given their extra-legal status, many of these individuals do not have access to driver’s licenses. This inhibits their ability to provide for their family and also makes the roads less safe for others.

MCC recognizes that illegal immigration is problematic, and we support comprehensive reform to address it. However, until a solution can be reached that secures our borders and provides a pathway to citizenship, we support measures like immigrant driver’s licenses.
