Driver’s licenses for all, regardless of immigration status! Support HF1500!
HF1500 is one of Women’s March Minnesota’s 2019 legislative priorities. This bill is about improving public safety, bolstering economic development, and building stronger families and communities for EVERYONE
Did you know that approximately 82,000 residents of Minnesota are eligible for a driver’s license or state ID, but cannot get one because they are undocumented immigrants. Many have been living here for decades and were able to obtain a driver’s license, until Governor Pawlenty changed the law in 2003. Imagine having your driving privileges and access to an ID stripped away. For undocumented immigrants, having access to a Driver’s License or State ID is both a matter of convenience, access and dignity to move around the state.
Here's how YOU can help get this bill passed:
HF1500 will have a hearing on Monday, March 4th. Please attend if you can to show your support:
5:00 p.m., Judiciary FInance and Civil Law Division, Rm 10, State Office Building, 100 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard, St Paul, MN 55155
If your Representative is on this committee, contact them and urge them to support this bill.
