WSGW OnLine Poll for YOU:     Undocumented Immigrants Obtaining a Michigan Driver’s License  (results)

(April 19 – 26)

A group of Democratic lawmakers have legislation that would allow, among other things, the opportunity for undocumented immigrants to obtain a driver’s license or other state identification if they provide proof of residency.

Michigan has required proof of legal residency since 2008 following a ruling by then Republican Attorney General Mike Cox. His ruling reversed a 1995 opinion by Democratic Attorney General Frank Kelley.

Democrats say it’s a matter of human dignity and safety, plus it would help the economy. Republicans say there is support to help legal immigrants , but illegal individuals should not be affored privileges.
